Snapchat is a social media app. It’s the trendy thing that all the cool kids are doing right now. The premise of Snapchat is simple. You take pictures and videos and share them with friends and followers. The hook is that the videos and pictures can only be viewed briefly before they disappear. It’s great for sexting, but you can also use it as a personal video journal of sorts. You can share a snippet of a concert or sunset with friends. You can show everybody that weird guy at the grocery store instead of merely describing him later on. I got Snapchat a couple of months ago and I use it a couple of times a day on average. Mostly I’m watching whatever my friends send me, but I’ve been known to do a few Snaps when I’m drunk or bored (or both). I mostly take selfies with something weird in the background, like a toilet bowl or a coworker eating lunch. The most important thing about Snapchat is being aware that it will notify the other person if you take a screen shot of something they sent you. Remember that when you’re sending pictures of your cooter out, ladies.
