Two way adult video chatting
Instead of left- or right-hand anchored menus, Snapchat has users swipe to access other elements of the service.
(I’m not even 40, and I’m one of them.) To the hip kids who have grown up with the four-year-old short video sharing app: It is with regrets that admittedly I may even incorrectly explain some of how this service—with its myriad of odd features—works. A social network where people share photos and short videos for just 24 hours, Snapchat is the answer to the Internet’s problem of never forgetting.
As with any social network, much of your Snapchat experience will depend on who you follow, but on this one you’re less likely to find carefully composed posts.
Instead, Snapchat all about spontaneity and documenting things “in the now.” Or, as the company’s founder Evan Spiegel puts it, “instant expression.” Navigating the App When opening Snapchat, forget the infinite scroll of the social networks you’re used to, because this app immediately springboards the camera to the screen.
From dogs wearing glasses to carnival mirror-type contortions, there’s always something new to see.
And through some slick promotions, the app frequently cycles in new lenses to play with based on popular movies and shows.
(Custom-made geo-filters for festivities like weddings are all the rage these days.) Alternatively, before you take a photo, press and hold on a person’s face and Snapchat’s lens options will pop up.
