Well, to each his own I guess. I personally don't like social media and 
avoided it for years. However, that's where teens hang out. If you want to 
attract them to Linux, you have to go to them. One of the nicest people I 
ran into was on Facebook. They don't do email anymore. I've found ways to 
text in an accessible way (I'm the only one without a smartphone). As I've 
said before, I especially don't like tumblr, but that and snapchat seem to 
be where they hang out. I'm sure blind teens hang out in other places since 
tumblr is especially inaccessible, but I don't know where and haven't looked 
too much. I leave that to others who are younger and more experienced.
