Since Snapchat exploded all over the iPhone World and Androidsphere, so too has many people’s desire to record every insignificant part of their day to share with people who actually don’t even care. The app has taken boring Facebook status updates and dumb Tweets to the next level, giving users the opportunity to further satisfy their unhealthy and delusional need to broadcast their life through 10 second video and photo to their friends.

I use the term “friends” lightly as those who are familiar with the app will understand that there are definitely a couple of people on your list that you don’t really know or even like. Yet for some reason, particularly whilst sat on the toilet, you find yourself mindlessly killing time by having a nosy into their uninteresting day. Thanks to Snapchat, many of us now effectively watch shit whilst having a shit.

These shitty snapchats can range from photos of some guy you met at Leeds/Reading fest informing you that his cheeky Nandos is “on point”, or the relentless videos of that dutty girl on your friends list who’s got her mate to film her slut dropping in the club. Obviously, this 8 second Snapchat goes a long way to confirming her status as the outrageous party animal she wishes everyone to perceive her as.

The app’s key selling point is that the user defines the time limit to which people are able to view the collusion of the uninspiring pixels which make up their Snapchat. Obviously this encourages twats of the emoji generation to send “nudes” and promiscuous photos under the assumption that a time-limit will prevent anybody passing the dirty pictures on.

In fact these photos are easily screen grabbed, especially by the perverted weirdos hell bent on amassing a wealth of embarrassing screen grabbed photos which result in such Facebook pages as “Snapchat Exposed”. If you’re lucky then your next dick pic could end up being seen by thousands on one of these groups

Contrary to the criticism, we’ve got to hand it to Snapchat, along with the rest of social media, due to its ability to help us see people for what they truly are. With a recent surge of race and religious issues taking centre stage, good old social media has acted as a world class dickhead detector in the form of identifying racist “friends” or people generally suffering from a chronically undernourished brain.

Though a much milder dickhead detector than Facebook, Snapchat lets us observe those odd individuals on the periphery of our social group and often proves why they aren’t our close friends and reinforces their position as obscure acquaintances.

So the next time that unknown dansnap1993 broadcasts 6 photos showing you the progress of his “gains” at the gym or that 300 second a day story girl sends you yet another photo posing inside a sunbed, just remember that Snapchat is looking out for you. It’s helping you identify those who you truly don’t want to associate with by providing you with a constant stream of their bullshit, always reminding you why you’re not actually good friends with them in the first place.

I’m not saying there’s anything wrong with Snapchat, it just seems like some people are unable to enjoy a night out, a gig or their meals without documenting it through a mobile phone app. Maybe we should try to fully experience the present moment instead of whipping out our phones at every opportunity and adding some pixels to a pointless digital story that will be lost forever the next day.

Everything in moderation, ey?
