I’ve always liked trying out new social sites.  I still remember all the days and nights I enjoyed chatting on Collegeclub, and the beginnings of MySpace and also Hi5.  Who would have thought today of what a success that Facebook, Instagram and Twitter have become???  And now, here is Snapchat.  It’s been out since September of 2011, but it’s taken me almost 6 years to even get curious enough to download this mobile app.

Snapchat is basically a social app used to send videos and photo messages that disappear after a short amount of time – only 24 hours.  You can send these messages to everyone on your friends-list, a chosen few, or download them and keep them private for yourself.  I can easily see why teenagers would love using this app, and why older folks would easily get confused by it.  Shoot, I still don’t know the ins and outs of all Snapchat’s features yet.  I have already accidentally sent some people that I follow – including Michelle Obama, a rather silly photo or two that I didn’t mean for them to ever, ever see.  So, I try now to be extra careful when maneuvering through the screens whenever using  it.
