Comments from some of those who selected Snapchat as one of their Top 10 Tools

  • “It’s the one medium that brings a smile on my face every morning and every night because of the community that is on it. Snapchat is not an easy medium to use and it takes AGES to build a community and find out the people who are sharing educational and inspirational content. However, it’s the only network that has made me instantly connect with people outside my field who are actively socially learning and working out loud. Snapchat has afforded me with some great opportunities and connections with people who I would NEVER have come across. From microbiologists, teachers, volcanologists, astronauts, scientists, presidents and developers and a myriad of entrepreneurs in their start ups, it’s a great way to learn and see behind the scenes what is happening in organisations. I’ve written a lot about Snapchat but never expected that over time, I’ve actually come to love it because of the great community in it.” Helen Blunden, Australia
