Episode Description

There is no question that YouTube and Instagram are two of the most popular programs today, especially for teens. YouTube has launched careers (think Justin Bieber and contestants on The Voice) and created online celebrities who have gone one to create companies based on their videos. If you own an ipad, iphone, ipod touch, or any smart phone, Instagram is a fast, beautiful, easy and FREE way to share your pictures and life with your friends and family. You can take a picture or video, post to Instagram, and then share to Facebook, Twitter, Tumbler, and more! And with 150 million monthly users, it’s a whole new way to see the world! Hosts Youngjoo Ahn and Asya Gonzalez talk about their favorite people, channels, topics, mentors, and influences. Techie Talks reporter Caiseen Kelley explains how ordinary folks become YouTube stars and how they monetize their concepts as YouTube partners. Health Beat reporter, Nicole Eubanks likes the health, fitness, and beauty channels in her quest to live a healthier lifestyle and recommends helpful videos. Youngjoo likes to blog and shoot photos but she doesn’t make her own videos yet. Artistic Asya is in the process of developing a unique teen advice column and welcomes an Instagram following at CityRouge. All agree that both YouTube and Instagram are mainstays in their every day life as their source of information, entertainment, advice, and fun insights.
