Snapchat. It’s the brightest star in the world of social media/apps. Unlike Instagram where users strive for the perfect photo (most of the time), Snapchat allows you to delve into the lives of users in a raw, unedited form.
Upload photos, videos, add a caption or draw something funny (genitalia seems to be the norm for a lot of users) and send it to a friend or add it to your Story with your friends.
The great thing about Snapchat is once it’s viewed, it disappears!
