What is Snapchat and how is it used?

You may have heard of Snapchat, a mobile application that allows you to send videos and photos. They will self- destruct after a few seconds. It is a fun messaging application to share in just a few moments so that your smartphone does not consume more memory than necessary. In the image or video that you want to share you can add a title or a doodle, so you can send it to your friends to share it and have a laugh. You can also send videos of about 10 seconds and then it will disappear from the device.

Some people don’t understand why someone would want to have Snapchat, I mean, why would some people want to send images and videos that are only a few seconds long?

How Snapchat works on the Internet

  • What’s the point if they can’t be saved? But the reality is that it can be saved, especially if you are fast and can capture an image if it is an image. Also, this application can offer you more things than you can imagine.
  • The biggest users of Snapchat are teenagers and young adults, since they are the people who use social networks the most and we can admit… there are many people (maybe you too) who are quite addicted to their smartphones. Because the images or videos self-destruct with this application, many adolescents use it to sext, a dangerous practice that can have serious privacy consequences.
  • It seems that teenagers have nothing to do but take provocative photos of themselves and send them to their friends or partners through Snapchat thinking that nothing bad will happen, they are more motivated to do it because the photos are deleted after a few seconds. But the reality is that these images remain stored in cyberspace and that, in addition, the people who receive them can take a screenshot, save the image and then use the photograph for other purposes that may affect the privacy of the sender.
  • Although if you really want to use Snapchat and do it to have fun with your friends, then you will have to take into account the security terms that the application has and download it, for your Android or for your iOS. When you download it you will need a data plan or Wi-Fi to send and receive Snapchats.
