It’s pretty obvious that Snapchat has become the new “It” in social media.
If you check out anyone’s profile on any platform these days, their Snapchat name is listed.
And I can honestly say, that makes me so happy.
I’m a Snapchatter. I love how simple the app is to use (ok, at first it’s a little tricky), and I love how it keeps me connected with friends I don’t see often. Mostly, I love that it’s this really raw look at peoples lives.
Snapchat isn’t known for filters. It’s known for turning your face into a puppy, an old woman, or my favorite, someone else’s face. So creepy, but so hysterical.
It’s not known for perfectly curated images that leaves a viewer feeling inspired, or like she’s got to step up her game when posting photos herself.
Snapchat is fun.
I had to take a step back from social media a couple weeks ago after the horrific terrorist attacks in my town. I couldn’t get on without someone slamming this organization, or bashing this politician. It was too much. I deleted all my social media apps, except for Snapchat.
It became the app I turned to when I was feeling down, because it honestly made me happier.
Friends Snapping pictures and videos of their babies, yes please.
My husband Snapping our baby with funny filters. Absolutely.
Celebrities letting me see into their days, you bet!
Snapchat is a happy place.
It’s a place you get to see messy floors, and what really goes down when you try and do all the things. It’s a social media platform where you can be, and dare I say it…yourself.
What a relief!
I love a pretty Instagram feed. Who doesn’t? But sometimes it gets to be exhausting. I love finding random Buzzfeed articles to read about 10 Things I Didn’t Know I could Eat, but I could also do without some of them.
Social media is a beautiful place, but there’s a lot of weight on Instagram and Facebook posts.
And I don’t feel like that with Snapchat.
Don’t want to see pictures of my cute baby all day? No problem, just don’t follow me.
Want to see a step by step of how I cook some meals? Just hit “Add Friend”.
Snapchat lets me take a big deep breath when it comes to this whole social media game, and that is why I love it.
