Snapchat is an application through which you can communicate with your friends using only photographs that they can see for a few seconds before they disappear forever, without trace on either of your phones.
The way the application works is very simple: take a picture, add text to the image if you want, select the amount of time that the image will be available for, and send it to whoever you want. It’s that easy.
In order for the receiver to see the image, as a security measure, they will also need to have the application installed. If they take a screenshot of the image, you will receive a notification, so that way you can know if they have kept the image you sent or not.
A major objective of Snapchat, as you may have guessed, is sending risquÃ© photos to a small number of contacts. Why? Because, in this way, the receiver can see the image but will not be able to keep it. Or, if they try to take a screenshot, you’ll still know.
Snapchat is a useful app for communicating with your friends quickly, easily, and visually. At the end of the day, why send a lot of text when you can make yourself clear with a single picture instead?
Please note: Snapchatters can always capture or save your messages, such as by taking a screenshot or using a camera. Be mindful of what you Snap!
