Reasons To Download Snapchat Right This Second
Snapchat offers a world of possibilities; whether it’s making your friends jealous of your awesome vacation or seeing the latest from your favorite brands.
When it comes to social apps, few are as ubiquitous as Snapchat. Once just used to share timed images that would vanish, Snapchat now offers users the ability to add fun filters to their selfies (including “geofilters,” which are user-submitted filters based on location) and keep up with the latest news from their favorite websites, such as BuzzFeed, Cosmopolitan, MTV, and ESPN. There are tons of reasons for you to download everyone’s favorite photo-sharing app – below are a just few of our favorites.
1. It’s a Great Way to Keep up With Friends
Whether you’re at the beach, on a plane, or bored at the office, Snapchat is an awesome and unique way to share the goings-on in your life with friends as well as to see what’s going on in their lives too. People Snap everything from makeup routines to hilariously long lines at Starbucks, all to show (rather than tell) their friends what their lives are all about. You can even include text with your images, so you can show off your fancy cocktail or ask the ever-important question, “legs or hot dogs?”
2. Everyone is on Snapchat
And we mean everyone. Not only can you keep up with friends using this popular app, you can also get a glimpse into the lives of some of your favorite celebrities. Celebrities of all stripes – including DJ Khaled, most of the Kardashians, Ryan Seacrest, Justin Bieber, and Jared Leto – enjoy using Snapchat to show off their daily exploits and sometimes to debut new content and products as well.
3. Brands Are on There, Too
Snapchat not only allows you to get a glimpse into the lives of your favorite celebs, it also lets you learn more about your favorite brands, too. It’s especially popular with top beauty and fashion brands like Glossier, Too Faced, and H&M. Snapchat is by no means limited to women’s products. Brands like Gatorade, General Electric, and Sour Patch Kids have all taken advantage of the platform to reach customers in fun and unique ways, with great success.
4. The Filters Are Really Awesome
Ever wondered what you’d look like with Sia’s hair, as a monster, or face-swapped with your best friend? You can do all that and so much more using Snapchat’s legendary facial filters. They add and subtract filters frequently, but leave a few user favorites like the glossy-eyed flower crown and, of course, the face swap filter. Because really, who doesn’t want to know how they’d look if they were a dog?
