This or That: Website or App?
Wednesday, April 28, 2021
Every morning in my 6th grade homebase class, I end the period with a fun “This or That” activity. I created a random online wheel that we spin. Questions vary from “McDs or BK” to “TikTok or SnapChat?”
In the mornings, I log on to the SP website on my MacBook while I eat breakfast. I also have the app on my iPhone and I’ll use it to enter some food throughout the day. That’s usually it for me.
Yesterday, however, I found myself looking at the app as I walked, mainly because I was really excited to see how many comments my friend AMUSICALLIFE’s blog about Happiness was getting. I kept checking in to see if there were more. If you haven’t read it yet, go check it out!
Then I started looking around my Profile section on the app a little more. I saw “Following” and “Followers.” I guess the followers are people who have added me as a friend on their page. I started looking at that list, and while most of the people had a green “Following” button next to them, many had a gray one that said, “Follow.”
I never see SP emails anymore, due to a gmail filter I set up. I can keep up with most things just by looking at the website, anyway. However, the one thing I don’t know is if someone has friended me. I have no idea how long all these people have had me as a friend. Hopefully they don’t think I’m a snob who finds them unworthy or uninteresting. I went through the entire list on my app and clicked them all to green… “following!”
I’ve always thought the app to be inferior because there is so much more available on the website, but I have to say this one feature is a lot better on the app.
So here’s your fun “This or That” today: Website or App?
6th graders can hardly wait to share their opinions every day, and you are welcome to do so, too!
