Snapchat is an application that allows you to send photos and videos that automatically disappear, creating a sort of digital post-it note. You can also add text and all sorts of drawings and objects to your snaps. That said, in order to use Snapchat you need to have a user account and be friends with lots of other users. If not, you can’t even see the app’s logo.
Once you’ve got the app installed and registered, the first thing you have to do is add some contacts. That way, when the app tells you there’s someone new who’s also on Snapchat, you’ll get a notification so you can add them. Snapchat lets you take pictures or videos by pressing one of two buttons: one to take a picture super quickly or video mode, which lets you make movies with sound.
Plus you can add filters to your pictures. The main appeal of Snapchat is how quick and easy it makes it to share interesting moments from your day via your friends’ eyes only for 15 seconds. You can even set up an alert for any time someone posts publicly on your timeline.
Snapchat is an excellent way to keep in touch with friends and acquaintances while adding a bit of mystery to the whole process.
