Newest App on Social Media - Anchor

Thank you to Mr. Fenton for reminding me about the latest Social Media trend - an app called Anchor that is "public radio" for the masses. You can share a "wav" which is a 2 minute recording and it is shared publicly - anybody who hears it can respond. It is integrated with Twitter and you can share hashtags to classify the conversations you are having. I've played with it for about a week and I'm intrigued - there is some growing it needs to do but people are flocking there so I'm sure it wont be long before a lot of educators start using it.
