As a millennial, I am addicted to social media. I’m on it all, I even dabbled in Tumbler.
I can say, without a doubt, Snapchat WAS my favorite. It had evolved from college kids sending nudes into the most diverse form of communication. Everything from selfies, to “shit snaps”. We had it too good.
Just as MySpace and all the others, Snapchat just self destructed. They completely changed their format. Now I know this might not seem like a huge deal to some, but you’re missing a few key flaws.
1. No more “accidental” stalking. You have to go out of your way to look at stories. If some one peeps my story now, I now they’re creeping. It’s not a big deal to most, but some of us have people who we have no business checking in on.
2. It’s only a matter of hours before some of you send a nude to someone you didn’t mean too. Look as a species we are getting more dumber. Adjusting to the new lay out is hard and I promise you, someone is going to slip up and send a meat pic to their Aunt Carol.
Now we’re left with two options. Play right into instagram’s hands and switch over to their story format, and delete Snapchat. Or, berate Snapchat on Twitter, another ruined social media site, until they fix it.
Spin zone, we all do what I suggested months ago and just use Venmo as our new outlet.
