The philosophy behind this unconventional landing place is that chats all begin with the conversation, and in Snapchat, images do the talking.That makes even more sense when you think of how the app treats its photos and videos ephemerally.In practice, teens ages 12 to 17 are indeed more intense users of text messaging than older cell phone users, while they use voice calling in similar manner to adults.Teens send and receive text messages in numbers that are orders of magnitude greater than what is sent and received by adults.Fully 31% of teens send more than 100 texts a day and 15% send more than 200 a day, while just 8% and 5% of adults send that many, respectively.
(I'm not even 40, and I'm one of them.) To the hip kids who have grown up with the four-year-old short video sharing app: It is with regrets that admittedly I may even incorrectly explain some of how this service—with its myriad of odd features—works. A social network where people share photos and short videos for just 24 hours, Snapchat is the answer to the Internet's problem of never forgetting.
As with any social network, much of your Snapchat experience will depend on who you follow, but on this one you're less likely to find carefully composed posts.
Instead, Snapchat all about spontaneity and documenting things "in the now." Or, as the company's founder Evan Spiegel puts it, "instant expression."Navigating the App When opening Snapchat, forget the infinite scroll of the social networks you're used to, because this app immediately springboards the camera to the screen.
Some people get a little weirded out when they hear the word "counselling." That's okay.
Basically, counselling is about talking to someone who knows a lot about many different issues that teens face.
