Tampa, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/13/2014 -- Just when parents think they’ve mastered the trends their kids are following, the trends shift. In this case, texting – once a mainstay of youth communication – is quickly being replaced by social messaging apps. In fact, in 2014 it is projected that there will be 50 billion app-based messages sent as compared to 21 billion text messages.
The team at MamaBear Family Safety App recently posted a blog identifying five of the most popular messaging apps and discussing the trend.
As tech trends shift with the winds, it’s crucial for parents to keep tabs on which apps their kids are using. MamaBear is helping parents stay on top of ever-changing technologies by describing some of the apps most popular with youth.
