When Snapchat hit the social media scene a few years ago, I never imagined it would get as big as it has. Like most new tech trends, I was introduced to this one by my little sister, and immediately liked it. My friends scoffed when I told them to download it, but fast forward three years later, and Snapchat is a definite Thing. It’s not only used to send discreet nudes and ugly-funny selfies, but it’s also being used by brands to create fun Snapchat stories and promote items. So *2016.*
There are a lot of great things about Snapchat – it’s entertaining, it’s easy, it’s fast, and the filters are fun AF even though they’re incredibly strange sometimes – but there are also some downsides. As usual, Tumblr users get real about what using Snapchat is really like, and the posts below range from funny situations to downright awkward ones – but they’re all relatable. Here’s to hoping Snapchat invents something even more fun and weird than face swapping!
