‘Snap me!’ seems to be becoming the new text me in everyday life. Not to sound like someone who is annoyed with the progress of technology, but I am personally sick of this. Snapchat has been a top social media app in recent years. Sending a quick picture to a friend of something, usually just of one’s face with no words, has unfortunately become something very stressful recently. Snapchat has come to be more of a job. Keeping up Snapchat ‘streaks’ has become such a burden in life. The fact that this is a priority is definitely something bothersome. Snapchat should not feel like a job when its intention was to be a new way to communicate with friends. Sending pictures instead of just text messages shouldn’t be prioritized in teenager’s lives. Unlike when it was a new app, Snapchat has stopped being fun and has users wishing to go back to when this form of communication was newly developed.
