10 apps of Christmas 2016 #6 – GroupMe

GroupMe picks up where SnapChat leaves off, elegantly fusing the instant messaging and file sharing capability of WhatsApp with the social media connectivity of a closed Facebook group, allowing you to create a private web space and share it just with your friends.  As always we feel we have to drop the c-bomb at this point: please don’t share copyright material, like journal articles, images you found on the web, video clips, and so on.  You can just as easily in most cases point to the original source or right click and choose “Copy image address” so others can find it again.

We had a surprisingly hard time finding a decent video tutorial for this app.  If you find anything more entertaining and informative, please let us know in the comments below!
