I’m too old for SnapChat. Well, that’s what I thought. Until I went to NYC last week (a post coming about that soon!) and Tiffany from MyDirt told me that I should definitely join.
I’m not a cool kid. I’m not hip. While my birth date technically makes me a millennial (I’m the first year based on the chart I saw recently), I don’t feel like I belong in that group. At all.
But I still want to puke rainbows. Something about it seems fun.
So I joined. My username is ThatJennPerry if you’d like to add me.
And what I’ve learned so far is that it’s actually pretty neat! While the face filters are fun, what has me hooked is the Stories. You record snaps to you My Story section and there they remain for 24 hours for your friends to see. Each time you log in, you can see the new snaps that have been added to your friend’s stories and catch up with what they’ve been up to.
It’s definitely voyeuristic – but I admit that’s pretty much the appeal.
