Your parents and grandparents know that you spend a lot of time on your phone, but do they know how cool and fun some apps can be? Are your older relatives as Snapchat-savvy as you are? Well, DoSomething.org's latest campaign, called "Grandparents Gone Wired," is all about getting older adults into the social media and photo-sharing programs you love most. (Trust us, once your relatives start learning how to use emojis properly, your text convos will get so much better.)
Web stars Lauren Giraldo, Aidan Alexander, Jordan Doww, and Jessie Paege certainly know a thing or two about putting out great content on the Internet, so they partnered up with the organization to teach some older adults about YouTube, Snapchat, Vine selfies, and emojis at a fun event in New York City recently! But they're also encouraging you to get involved yourself – and a good way to start is by texting WIRED to 38383 for more information.
You can check out the gallery above to see tons of pics from the event, and Jordan even filmed the fun vlog below to document the whole experience.
