Pinterest is taking the social media scene by storm. With over 80% of Pinterest users women, it’s no wonder that there is a strong homeschool base there among the cupcake recipes and sewing tutorials. Let’s connect with each other on Pinterest just like we do on other platforms. Because we all have interests besides just homeschooling, be sure to follow the individual boards that appeal to you instead of everything by a particular user.
Instagram is a fun photo sharing app for smart phones and tablets or any other device that can use apps. It’s easy to connect an Instagram account to your Twitter, Flickr, or Facebook accounts for broadcasting pictures from your day across various social media networks. Add hashtags to your photo descriptions and even mention people by using @handles. Follow your friends and like their photos or comment on the ones that particularly interest you. Sometimes entire conversations happen on Instagram with photos as the centerpiece.
Twitter is essentially microblogging. Unike other social media platforms, Twitter users are only allowed short 140-character messages. Hashtags (like the iHomeschool Network hashtag #ihsnet) enable users to connect their tweets to larger conversations. A hashtag will help you and your ideas get noticed on Twitter.
YouTube is now the world’s second largest search engine. When people want to know how to do something, they turn to videos for crystal clear tutorials. We homeschoolers are well represented there, showing off homeschool organization, curriculum reviews, and parenting tips. If you are a homeschooler with a YouTube channel that includes videos about homeschool related topics, we invite you to link up here by adding your channel link in the appropriate fields below. Find other innovative, video loving homeschool families to subscribe to, watch, like, and comment on.
Etsy is a marketplace where people around the world connect, both online and offline, to make, sell and buy unique goods. The heart and soul of Etsy is their global community: the creative entrepreneurs who use Etsy to sell what they make or curate, the shoppers looking for things they can’t find anywhere else, the manufacturers who partner with Etsy sellers to help them grow, and the Etsy employees who maintain and nurture the marketplace.
Teachers Pay Teachers is the world’s first and largest open marketplace for educators to buy, sell, and share their original resources. TpT helps teachers to teach at their best and provides a community where teachers succeed. Teachers Pay Teachers believes that real teachers create the most relevant and engaging educational resources. Their open marketplace model supercharges resource quality, quantity, and availability. Bringing educators together forms a powerful community that shares best practices, raises the bar for all, and compensates our best curriculum developers (sometimes spectacularly).
