About The Guide

What parents need to know about Houseparty

Published 25th March 2020

In the current environment, many of us are using different ways to try and keep in touch with our friends and family. One app that has risen in popularity is Houseparty, which gained the no.1 spot on the app store after becoming one of the most downloaded apps since social isolation was introduced. Billed as a ‘face to face social network’ the platform launched in 2016 but isn’t as widely known as Facebook, WhatsApp or Snapchat. That’s why we’ve created this guide for parents and carers to help them understand exactly what Houseparty is all about.
