I’ve been seeing a lot of things for some time about Snapchat.
I even downloaded the app once, thinking surely I must have been missing something and there has to be more to this trend than meets the eye.
Please understand that I am probably missing something hugely entertaining and obvious!
(Actually I HOPE I am missing something hugely entertaining and obvious — otherwise it means there is something hugely wrong with our world.)
That said, here is what I’ve gleaned:
Snapchat is a service which lets you take pictures and send them with captions to people.
Wait. Isn’t that just what sending a text message with a picture is? There is even a little camera thingy right there in the text thing of my phone which allows me to either attach a photo or video I’ve already taken, OR take a new photo or video just for the occasion.
This is really all there is to see or say about it. WHAT AM I MISSING?
If Snapchat has successfully marketed an app that is just sending pictures and text, they really could sell napkins to people who live in a warehouse full of napkins. And spend their lives making napkins, while clothed in napkin clothes and swaddled in napkins blankets.
