The SnapChat Rush
So, what do I think about Snapchat? Well, I’m glad that they are doing well in the market. Kudos. If I had the cash to put in the stock, I’d heavily consider getting some. But, as a tool for business or just general use, I just don’t get it.
The concept is easy enough to understand. You post and share stuff that disappears in 24 hours; but why would you? It just seems shady. Almost like a pressure salesman or petulant child that wants you to look at them now, or not at all. I mean, I don’t even get around to looking at the stuff I NEED to look at in 24 hours most of the time. That’s why most standards are “3 to 5 business days”. And what do you do when someone doesn’t get to see the stuff you posted? Do you repost it, and call up your peeps and say “look at it now, now! Before it goes away!?
So, no. I don’t use it. I don’t want that kind of pressure or rush coming from all sides; and then having to answer the question “Did you see my snapchat?” with a reply of “nah… I think something was wrong with my phone…“
Sounds cool though. I just like living life in the slower lane; with a 140 characters. 😉
