People may think that Snapchat is another social network with the same features that Facebook or Twitter can have. Wrong. Snapchat is not only very different from them, but it is also changing our communication. Snapchat is a video/photo messaging application created in 2011 that allows its users to send pictures and video, to apply some filters to them, to write and draw on them and to send them to your friends. Seems like a different-but-same Facebook. The difference is that this “Snaps” you send last 1 to 10 seconds, and then they will be forever deleted. Nowadays people are tired of their memories to be permanent stored online and for everybody to be able to see them, that is how Snapchat is becoming more and more popular; because it gives a sense of freedom. Users can send whatever they want knowing that in a couple of seconds that data will expire forever. Unfortunately, lots of people use this app to send pornographic pictures and this is definitely a con of the self-destruction way of communication. Still, 2 billion of Snaps are sent everyday, more than Facebook and Instagram combined, which indicates the growth and the appreciation of this new social network.
