6 Ways to Stay Connected During Quarantine Using Social Media
Staying indoors has been difficult in many ways for many people. For us extroverts and social beings, not being able to interact with our friends and family is one of the more difficult consequences to endure.
We’ve composed a list of ways you can use social media to stay connected with your friends and family, and maybe even meet some new people!
Digital dance parties
For those of us that like to boogie down, digital dance parties have become a huge social hit! Typically using Zoom, you connect with a host DJ who plays music for all to enjoy. Some are themed, with costumes and disco lights encouraged!

Start a Digital Book Club
You can orchestrate a digital book club using your preferred digital platform (Facebook, Instagram, etc.) to invite friends or make new ones! You have the option of digitally downloading books within minutes, or, order a physical copy to be delivered to your address via mail. Some local bookstores are also offering curbside pickup!
The Houseparty App is like FaceTime, but more fun with games. You can add as many people as you want, and play games such as Pictionary or Heads Up. Everyone can download and play remotely from their phone!
By now you have surely seen a TikTok video, maybe even 100 Tiktok videos. Download the TikTok app to make fun content to share with your friends and family!
Virtual trivia league
If you’re looking to keep your mind sharp while at home but also love a little competition, join a virtual trivia league! The great thing about an online league is that you can join from anywhere, so compete with players from around the country or even the globe! If you’re feeling really ambitious, start a small digital trivia night with loved ones.
