ConGRADulations Class of 2020! Grad is different this year. There won't be a walk across the stage in front of family and friends, tearful good-bye hugs or yearbook signings. Grad is going virtual this year, but it can still be filled with laughter, smiles and all the feels!
First of, you'll want to plan how you will bring your family and friends together virtually. You'll need to decide which platform you want to use and pick a date and time so you can invite everyone to log on and tune in.
The easiest, most popular video platforms to use are Zoom, Skype, Facetime (you can even create a Facebook event as your invite), Google Hangouts and Google Duo.
Each platform has different limitations, so choose the best for your group. Zoom has a limit of 40 minutes, so if your gatherings tend to go long, this may not be your best option. Facetime only works with iOS, so if your group won't all be joining from Apple devices, this is not an option. Google Hangouts require a gmail account and Google Duo requires your participants download the app. All these platforms are free to use, you only need an internet connection and a computer, tablet or phone with a camera.
Now, let's talk party planning. Here are six ways to say hat's off and game on to a hype grad party!
