I think you’ve noticed that recently Snapchat has transformed into a ‘real’ social network after being used only for few purposes like sending indecent photos (which could have been print-screened anyway so what was the point of sending them via that app?!)
But I am not planning on joining.
Yes, you’ve read correctly.
You will not find me there anytime soon.
2. The more social networks you are on, the more effort you have to make to stay tuned with everything and everybody while creating your own content.
Result: you’ll focus more on others than on you. This leads to…
3. I really want to live my life at its fullest
Therefore, as I valuate and appreciate my free time, I will not be joining the Snapchat mania and I do it for my own sake.
P.S. Personal observation: Taking into consideration the fact that we are already one of the most narcissistic generations until now, Snapchat makes it more about us too:
hey, here’s a selfie with my new make-up palette/
hey, here are my ama-ziiing concert tickets to Robbie Williams/
hey, this is my new Guess bag! yay me!/
hey, look at my handsome boyfriend randomly making pancakes!/
hey, here is just another photo of my beautiful face!
SEE? me-my-mine = Snapchat = desperate sought attention (with extremely few exceptions)
Advice: keep your personal life personal and stop looking for confirmation around you. You’ll suddenly have more time for yourself and for truly enjoying your life.
Of course, this is my point of view, but I’ll like to hear yours too! 😉
Stay tuned for a lovely post from Greece!
Have a great day!
