When I first started an account with Snap-chat I had just recently deleted my instagram account. A lot of people may wonder, why? Well honestly, I was tired of taking pictures and the social network just wasn’t fun to me anymore. I remember coming home from school one day and my sister raving about this new app, telling me it was the next big thing. At first I was hesitant on making an account, so she went ahead and made one for me. At first I only had immediate friends and close cousins of mine on it. I loved it, the thought of documenting short clips of your day to day life and snapping things in the moment was genius to me. Specially because back then, when snap chat wasn’t as popular as it is today people were way more hilarious on it. I will wake up and the first thing I will do, will be to look at my snap story from the night before. Since I didn’t have a lot of followers and the ones I did were close friends/family of mine snap-chat was a great outlet to check up on what everyone was doing. What I liked the most about snap-chat was that back then there weren’t any filters so you couldn’t make your videos to be “pretty.” That aspect made it more real to me because you could’ve actually seen how a person looked on a day to day without a filter. Till this day I still don’t have a instagram, after snap-chat took off it didn’t make sense to me. On snap I will see what my followers were doing and since I also followed mostly the same people on Twitter it went hand in hand.
Unfortunately, now I have to make a new instagram account because my class requires it. I hope this time around it’s a little more enjoyable for me and i hope to get to have fun with it like i once did. What about you guys? Which one do you like better?
