Kenyon College Geotag Filters

Snapchat. What an app. The faceless ghost mediates flirty interactions, double chin selfies, and everything else us “youths” are up to these days. Snapchat has created a space for budding narcissists to perfect the use of the dog filter, amateur film majors to master the art of a 10 second video, and superficial friends to strive for a 100 day snap streaks. This godly creation must be celebrated because pure, unadulterated joy can only truly be found by watching someone else’s snapchat story, as you eat Cool Ranch Doritos in bed, and have fomo.

Snapchat: An Opinion

So earlier today I woke up to an updated version of Snapchat. When the app first became popular, I was a little skeptical; why would anyone ever need this app (except to send nudie pics of course)? However, as most people did, I took to it pretty quickly. Sending little doodles of my surroundings to people who were basically forced to look at what I found interesting for no longer than ten seconds. Yesterday though, they added a feature that presumably will change the way Snapchat’s users will interact with the app. The new features is called “Stories” and it could not be any dumber.

Look at that coy smile…

I never considered the value of Snapchat as a service for sexting until yesterday at Peirce brunch. I have never used Snapchat for sending dirty pictures – never, in fact, taken any at all – though I can understand why the app has become so popular for that purpose. The picture disappears within a few seconds, and you get a notification if the recipient takes a screenshot. I have friends who do it. My snapchats are generally more along the lines of this: Continue reading
