Yik Yak is a location-based social network that helps people discover what’s going on in local communities.The demographic skews very young, and most people use it to connect to others in their high school or college.
This is an important book if you want to learn how the young generation—both girls and boys—use their smartphones.
They copy celebrity actions in their online personas -- pose in revealing clothing (or no clothing), make the duckface, stick out tongues Miley Cyrus style.
