I will admit, when I first heard of Snapchat and downloaded it for myself, I thought it was pretty pointless. Why did I need to send my friends pictures that would disappear in 3 seconds? The original intention for it (which I’m not going to explain here…Google people) made a lot more sense actually.
I recently redownloaded it though and I have to say, I now get the allure a lot more. I still think it’s better to just text your friend a picture but they have these amazing filters that change everyday that can make you look like anything from an animal to a cowboy. It’s seriously one of the most entertaining things. I’ve been using it to send silly selfies back and forth with one of my best friends and every time I see one pop up from her or do one myself, it makes me laugh and it makes me smile.
Also, if you haven’t discovered Bitmoji, it’s another one of my “all about the little things” happiness-givers. You basically make an animated version of your self (you get to pick the face, hair, eyes, clothes, etc.) that then comes in all kinds of emoji forms. I even got my parents to start using them. I thank my friend who introduced me to this wonderful invention profusely.
