Snapchat is an application that allows users to take videos and videos and share them with a controlled audience, which comprises of their friends and snapchat followers. With each of your video or photo, also referred to as snaps, you can draw a picture with your finger, use emoji or type words on the screen. Once you have created your snap, you can adjust the period for which it will be visible to your recipients, which is between 1 and 10 seconds.
Among the main aspects that set snapchat apart from the other social media platform is the fact that a snap disappears after your Snapchat followers have viewed it and cannot be retrieved. This has contributed to the high level of privacy enjoyed by the users of this application today. Deleting the snaps from the snapchat servers after the recipients have viewed them implies that no one else can ever what you sent your recipients. Since its introduction to date, Snapchat has continued to be a platform for users to communicate in real-life setting.
