Social Networks: Who's Winning?

Over the last month, I have mentioned some Facebook posts to my children and wife and been told that “none of the kids” are using Facebook anymore.  I am being told that they have moved on to Instagram and Snapchat.  It is true, within our house and our kids’ circle of friends that most of […]
