Have you noticed a teenage girl making faces at her phone? Chances are, she was sending a Snapchat, the on-fire alternative messaging app that makes iMessage seem dull. More than 20 million "snaps" are sent each day, primarily by teens, according to a report from investment firm Piper Jaffrey. The analysts neglected to include Snapchat as an option in their survey but had the foresight to ask more than 5, teens to specify their favorite social networks. Snapchat ranked third, behind Wanelo a Pinterest-style site where everything can be bought and Vine, Twitter's 6-second video app.
Snapchat has gained a reputation for sexting because of its ephemeral feature: A snap disappears within 10 seconds of being opened by a recipient. But Snapchat expert Elizabeth who also happens to be my daughtersaid the accusation is false. Whereas instant messaging is pretty dry, Snapchat is as expressive as the user.
Instead of texting the words, "I'm so mad right now," with Snapchat, you would take a photo of your face, add a caption and send. Snapchat also lets users take videos of up to about 15 seconds, but simple photo snaps are the preferred way for teens to chat.
If they really want to video chat, they'll use FaceTime, Elizabeth said. Snapchat is self-contained, meaning that snaps can be sent only among people who use the app. For added privacy, change the settings from "Everyone can send me snaps" to "Only friends can send me snaps. But don't expect high-quality images, regardless of the device — iOS or Android — used.
Snapchat allows you to see the three people your friends chat with the most. Go to My Friends, and tap on a name to see the of snaps for that friend, along with her best friends. Elizabeth said no one worries about how they look in a snap — a big contrast to the extensive editing done for Instagram posts. Elizabeth tweeted, "The uglier the Snapchat, the more mutual trust there is.
