Who Are You On Snapchat?
Everyone, or at least the majority of people, enjoy being on Snapchat and having fun with different filters. As you add more friends on Snapchat you begin to notice everyone has a certain “Snapchat Persona.” Here are a few of the ones I’ve noticed.
We all have those friends who love to bless their stories with 10 seconds of their favorite song. Which can be nice, sometimes they even remind you of songs you had forgotten about. Other times it’s more like you are listening to their Pandora playlist.
For those who aren’t camera shy, Snapchat is a great way to showcase their musical talents. Whether they love to karaoke or lip sync to their favorite jam, they provide a 10 second concert. Plus you know 120 seconds of different songs is a great way to stay entertained, sometimes.
Those of you who feel selfie ready everyday all I can say is, bravo my friend. Most of us mere mortals don’t experience this, so if you got it, flaunt it. Just remember there are other things you can photograph and it’s nice to diversify.
Dog Filter Aficionados
Whether you love it or not, everyone looks good in the dog filter. It’s adorable – it evens out your skin tone and who doesn’t love puppies? But then again it wouldn’t hurt to give another filter a chance once in a while.
Social media is about connecting people all across the world, and with Snapchat it’s very easy. Sharing every moment of your life with your followers is a great way to keep everyone in the loop about your daily life. On the flip side of that, there are some things that should be kept private.
We all have those friends who post the most random things in the world. And more often than not there is no explanation about what is going on in the post. Keep your friends guessing, it makes life more interesting. But every once in a while give a little clue about what’s going on to help us to understand your posts.
Getting contact with nature is good for the soul. But for those who are stuck in the hustle and bustle of the city, just follow a nature lover on Snapchat. You’ll be able to explore places you might not have time for, or even find new places to visit. Just remember that making time to visit those places is also good for the soul.
Geo Tag Traveler
Those of you who live in highly populated states know how easy it is to collect several geo tags in one trip. Letting everyone know what city you passed through can be fun, but if you ever have a chance to actually stop and explore the city, then do it.
Couples on Snapchat who showcase their boo all day everyday seem to be very happy. If you love them, why hide them? While it’s nice to show how happy you are, sometimes it’s nice to see the other things that are going on your life.
Finally we have the viewer – that friend who watches it all and posts nothing. It’s totally cool – not everyone has to put there life out there for the world to see. All I would say is that it doesn’t hurt to post occasionally; it is social media after all. The point is to share your experiences with those around you, and the beauty of it is that you can control who sees your stuff and it’s gone after 24 hours.
Regardless of who you are on Snapchat, it’s about expressing your individuality. So instead of falling into one category, be a mixture of all of them. Show your friends you’re more than just a Dog Filter Aficionado or a Geo Tag traveler.
