What, this little piece of internet real estate (virtual estate?) still exists? Remarkable. I miss all you guys.
I have recently become totally obsessed with Snapchat. I don’t really know how it happened. I am pretty sure I was the only 40+ year old on Snapchat until I recently convinced a couple of friends to join me. I just love it so much. I don’t know why. Maybe it’s the ephemeral feel of it or the true “in the moment” aspect of it. You can only upload photos or videos taken with the Snapchat app, so no picking an old photo out of your gallery and no fancy editing is possible. The “My Story” feature is the epitome of microblogging…and then even that is gone after 24 hours! Love.
I just wish I had more friends to send actual snaps to. And I wish I had more IRL friends who posted to their My Story so I could see what they are up to throughout the day. It literally takes seconds (unlike these clunky blog posts which I barely remember how to create).
If you have no clue about Snapchat, read this from Mashable: The Beginner’s Guide to Snapchat. However, they just released a new update so the latest version of the app may look a little different than what is shown in that article, and there are a few new features. But that will give you the gist of it. I can answer some questions about the update if you like, but otherwise I’m gonna say Google that ish.
I am barely posting anything on Facebook these days and even less on Instagram (but I still prefer IG to FB theoretically). I am on Twitter constantly, but mostly just for reading not posting. Snapchat is pretty much the only place I am documenting my fascinating life at the moment. So get on there so you can see my breakfast and newly painted fingernails and Chewie and what-all. The important stuff. You know.
If you have just downloaded the app (or updated your existing app to the latest release), with the app open you can aim your phone camera at the image below and just tap the Snapchat home screen to follow me.
Or you can just search for my name and add me that way (you know I’m Caroline Calcote on all social media platforms).
Please. Come to Snapchat and hang out with me and the youngsters. I’ll be your best friend.
