Have you heard of the popular photo messaging app named Snapchat?
"...users can take photos, record videos, add text and drawings, and send them to a controlled list of recipients. These sent photographs and videos are known as "Snaps". Users set a time limit for how long recipients can view their Snaps (as of April 2014, the range is from 1 to 10 seconds), after which they will be hidden from the recipient's device and deleted from Snapchat's servers.
Snapchat's popular and distinguishing feature is that the pictures that you send are temporary. Why would that capability be popular among teens ages 13 to 23? Hmmm... Well everyone soon figured out that you can just screenshot the Snaps and keep a copy of them forever, which might not be great news for some users. However, if you have a friend like Meaghan, you might be glad that the Snaps you receive aren't lost forever.
Meaghan's current job has her working overnights, and sometimes she gets very tired. To stay awake, she often sends me crazy Snaps. They started out simple, like the one above.
Then things started to get pretty SERIOUS.
Take a look at a sample of some of my favorite Snaps, all created by Meaghan (and used with her permission).
It hasn't always been a joy opening her Snaps when I wake up in the morning, because sometimes they're just plain disturbing, like this clown. But, it's worth the risk for all the cool ones that I get to see!!!
Keep 'em coming, Meaghan!
