Social distancing doesn’t mean you have to lock yourself into complete self-isolation. The internet exists for a reason, and now is the time to leverage the digital scope to connect with your friends while staying safe indoors.
Teen Vogue has noted down some digital socializing apps you can use during self-isolation. Here are a few of them.
It’s time to get back to the books you have been prolonging to finish for the longest time. Whether it’s a classic book like Pride And Prejudice by Jane Austen or a long read like 1Q84 by Haruki Murakami, now is the best time to catch up on your reading.
While doing that, you can even bond with others via Bookclubz, an app to connect with friends and like-minded individuals through a simple club format.
YouTube has a plethora of content for you to binge-watch during the lockdown, but now, you can add friends to relish in mukbangs and weird cat videos together through the Watch2Gether app. Just create a room and share the link.
Instagram Live / IGTV
This week, we saw celebrities going on livestreams to entertain their fans online. With the emergence of Instagram Live and IGTV, you can now use these tools to bond with your friends online, no matter where they are.
