I’m definitely not one to endorse (or condone) using any form of social media, but I will admit that I’ve been having fun keeping in touch with a small group of friends back in the United States by communicating through Snapchat. If you’ve never used this application, basically you mostly communicate by sending very short videos (I believe 10 seconds is the limit) and you can also do a bit of private messaging. The interesting thing is that all of your video uploads can only be viewed and then replayed once, and all of your messages will disappear after the window is closed. It may sound strange, but it’s refreshing in an age of endless digital content uploaded on a daily basis. It’s also fun just to see a little moment of a person’s life instead of a long-winded video that no one has time to view anyway. It’s been my favourite way to communicate online recently because it connects me to people that I really miss but not in an overwhelming way.
