You may be wondering: Why use Snapchat instead of text? After all, text messages are still the best way to communicate with friends and family, but it has its drawbacks as well. For one, the time it takes to respond to a text message is significantly longer than sending a photo, video, or document via email. On the other hand, using a multimedia messaging service such as Snapchat has a lot of other advantages that text messages simply cannot offer. Snapchat is designed to be fun, making it acceptable to have a casual relationship with those you love.
Another reason to use Snapchat instead of text: its focus on brevity. Texting can become a chore when a conversation goes on for too long. With Snap, there’s less pressure to respond to a message immediately. The last thing you want is to send a long message only to realize that you’ve already missed the point. Moreover, you can respond to a message immediately instead of having to wait for the recipient to reply.
Another benefit of using Snapchat is its cost-effectiveness. It’s free to send and receive photos and videos, even on Wi-Fi. Compared to traditional text and photo messages, Snapchat is cheaper, especially for young people who usually use pay-as-you-go phones. It is also less annoying for friends to check in at every location. And unlike text, the content you share is more creative and interesting.
