Snapchat has long been one of the most popular social media apps in the world. If you’ve ever wondered how snapchat gained such a huge userbase, and why people love it so much, then we’re here to answer that.
How Snapchat Gains Users
If you’re still not aware of Snapchat, it’s a photo sharing app that was created by Evan Spiegel, Bobby Murphy, and Reggie Brown. The app became popular for a number of reasons. It had really clean user interface which made it a really good option for those with low vision. It had a lot of creative options that weren’t possible with other photo sharing apps at that time. The app also provided options for users to create geofilters which allow users to have fun with their photos. Finally, it provided an easy way for users to stay connected with their friends when they are away from the real world. Snapchat is really popular for a number of reasons, but in this section we’ll highlight the most important ones.
Why Snapchat Users Love It
Stories is a big reason why people love Snapchat. When you’re on Snapchat, you can create ‘stories’ which will stay up for 24 hours and show off all of your snapchat friends. The most popular stories are generally news, funny pictures, memes, and events, so you can keep up with your friends and see what’s going on in their lives, or keep up with events going on in your area.
Snapchat Stories get shared throughout the app, meaning that you’ll get updates from your friends or your local town. The lack of distractions means that you get to do what you want to do while you’re using the app. You don’t have to worry about new updates from friends or updates on the news, you can stay on the app to actually keep up with your friends or your day to day activities.
On Snapchat, not only can you communicate with your friends in a fun and unique way, but you can see content from famous people, like actors, comedians, musicians, and celebrities. Another popular use for the app is getting photos and videos from scantily clad or even fully nude girls, sometimes referred to as thots. Part of why Snapchat started to gain popularity is the ability to send nudes and have them disappear from the recipients device in a set amount of time. Some hookup sites like Thots.app have expanded on this concept, creating apps for sharing nudes that also focus on helping users to hook up with other people in their area. Thots is a term recently popularized by Megan Thee Stallion, but now has been brought to life as as dating app, and it works just like the name suggests.
Why You May Not Like Snapchat
Despite the fact that people generally love it, you should be aware that if you don’t have a large enough circle of friends on Snapchat, you won’t be able to use it all that much. If you have friends that haven’t signed up for the app yet, then you’re kind of out of luck if you want to enjoy the service. But that’s not to say that you can’t enjoy the app if you do have a friend that has already taken the leap. It really is an excellent way to communicate with friends that you might not be able to get together with often, without ever having to talk on the phone or Skype. What makes it such a good tool to use when you’re chatting with friends? Well, we already talked about how the app simplifies things so much that you don’t have to struggle with multiple apps to carry out a conversation.
Using social media, such as Instagram or Snapchat, does come with its dangers, such as exposing information about yourself. Snapchat does have a few security measures in place, such as an open API, to help secure your data. At the end of the day, if you don’t feel secure in using an app, then just don’t use it. As with most things in life, it’s all about knowing when to be careful and when to just trust.
