What do people think?

My teens had a really great time and they definitely want me to host another one.
Everything worked great and the teens really enjoyed the texting. They were all eager to know when the next movie with MuVChat would be, which seems like a good response! was great! They all got right into it...The movie was awful and as I watched I thought 'Oh no, everyone is going to leave' but not a single person left. They stayed to the end, texted to the end, they even lingered afterwards, and a few stayed late to talk about 'the next time.'
It was very user friendly!
It was a brilliant success for us.
