Get Together!

Lots of web sites connect friends, schoolmates, or family. Ruff and Blossom use one to invite Ruff's family to a surprise birthday party. Sites like that are great ways to organize any group event, especially when people are traveling from far and wide.

Storing Photos!

People take lots of photos on their phones. If you do, it's a good idea to save them on a different device (like a computer) in case you lose your phone.

One way to back up your photos is to save them to "the cloud." What that means is you're saving them onto other computers that you can log into from anywhere. Although it means other people might be able to see your photos, you can easily find them yourself at any time by connecting to the internet.

One of the amazing things about the internet is that you can video chat with people around the world. In our video, Helga couldn't come to Chet's party in person, but she joined it (from Sweden!) by video chat.
