Week 3-Art Experience- Snapchat

Yes one of the beauties of snapchat is indeed that it is ephemeral. However the reason I find it more intriguing than Instagram is because it is by all means more instant. Creating this facade of perfect life is easier on Instagram because you are creating a permanent collage to represent yourself. Snapchat to me is a slightly more honest tell-tale of the reality of a persons life. Ultimately neither is the truth but at least snapchat shows present and less doctored versions of life than Instagram. I love the quote “Being famous on Instagram is like being rich in monopoly… it’s not real”. Instagram is fun you just have to make sure you don’t get sucked too far into it. Snapchat on the other hand, I find is generally taken much less seriously 🙂
