My thoughts on...

I hate Snapchat

Since long I’ve had a major dislike for the app Snapchat, but at the moment I have reached a point where I downright hate it, because it’s everywhere. Let me be clear, I do not have a Snapchat account, never had and never will. Nor have I even downloaded it. I am against the entire concept of Snapchat and this is for personal reasons. Why?

  • I am obsessed with memories and historic dates.
    I cannot understand why someone would ever want to make a memory disappear after 15 (?) seconds.
    I love to scroll though old photos and relive moments that were precious to me.
  • Yes, I share a lot on Facebook, but I do not share every second of my life.
    I simply do not have the time, nor do I think my life is that fascinating.
  • I hate those stupid animal filters.
    And lately they seem to be rising up everywhere.
    Why would anyone want to look like a dog or a zebra? Call me old. Call me boring. I think it’s stupid.
  • I do not want to choose my audience. I want to share content with all my friends and followers.
    Sharing certain things with a selected group of people sounds like a whole lotta work.
    Yes, Facebook also has filters, but mostly is visible to everyone.
  • Apparently Snapchat gives you a notification when someone takes a screenshot of the content?
    Uhu… and then? Isn’t the damage done after that?
    And if you don’t want anyone taking screenshots,
    how about YOU DON’T SHARE THOSE NUDE PICTURES!!!!!
    Uhu, yes it’s no secret what Snapchat secretly is being used for.

Sorry for the rant. The above are my thoughts and opinion.
If you enjoy Snapchat, go ahead and Snap the chat all you want.
I however, will not be joining that train… so please stop asking! #byefelicia

Please note, I have never had a Snapchat account nor have I ever downloaded the app.
My analysis is purely based on the things I have read and heard.
