Learn with Lynda – Learning Snapchat

Continuing with the social theme from the last Learn with Lynda, this month we are showcasing Learning Snapchat, a short course of 23 min 21 secs by Anson Alexander. This course is for beginners and no previous knowledge is needed.

Learn how to set up and use Snapchat, the popular and supposedly confidential video-messaging platform that deletes messages after they are shared. Anson Alexander shows how to set up an account, record new photos and videos and chat with friends, as well helping new users understand critical privacy settings and whether “snaps” really disappear for good after viewing.

Topics include:

  • Creating a Snapchat account
  • Adding friends on Snapchat
  • Sending and receiving videos
  • Chatting
  • Deleting a Snapchat account
