Snapchat – Good or Evil

After seeing me using Snapchat much more these days, one of my closest friends, worried that it might destroy my reputation, has warned me:

“Snapchat is what 14 year olds use for sexting and bullying each other – not cool!”

Well, I agree there is a lot of rubbish on Snapchat, but as a matter of fact all the other social media aren’t any better. The Internet is full of keyboard warriors, pedophiles and a bad guys but it’s also an amazing place for free information, knowledge, love and friendship. It’s all there, the trick is to know where to look for the good stuff!
Personally, I think Snapchat is amazing.

Because it is a new, fast growing social platform which allows users to record and share videos and photos with others in a new, refreshing way.
Instead of the highly polished, professional videos of youtube and vimeo, on Snapchat you are getting something completely different, a true image of the world around you.
It is because you simply cannot edit your videos here. You post what you see, raw and organic. This allows you to show the real world, no cuts, edits or beautiful filters allowed.
Snapchat is still fairly new, people either say they don’t understand it at all or they have no idea how to use it properly.

Let me explain it in 5 easy steps.

  1.  Download the app from the app store
  2. Install it on your mobile.
  3. Create an account. Choose your user name wisely, it cannot be changed.
  4. Add your friends. You can find them in your contacts, use a snapcode or a user name.
  5. Start snapping! When you record a video you can either send it to an individual user or add it to your 24h story which all your friends can see.

That’s it. Well done!

Now, let’s put the theory into practice. Try to add Fitness Soul on Snapchat.
