On which social media platform can you have the most fun and have to worry the least about your data security and privacy? Yep, you guessed correctly; we’re talking about Snapchat. As long as you stay in your lane and don’t harass other users, you’re bound to have a great time there. ‘Snapchat was designed with a specific target audience: Gen Z and Millennials. However, all advertisers would know that it is challenging to appeal to the younger generations the same way you would the Boomers.
Youths today are more vocal and specific about their needs and wants. They want something sophisticated and well-thought but also flirtatious, light, and funny. They want to enjoy it but at no point should they have to think, “I’m having way too much fun. There much be a catch to this all.”
To ensure all users have an enjoyable experience on the platform, they can always block or report any users who behave inappropriately or creepily.
Now all that was left was the fun part, and trust us when we say Snapchat left no stone unturned. There has never been a platform where media is the main form of communication. The primary theme of the platform is, in itself, a Unique Selling Point.
Think about it: through photos and videos, you can get your message across much more clearly than text, don’t you think? There’s always more that you could’ve said in a message or when you receive one, you always wonder what tone they might be using.
Snapstreaks were the only way you could make snaps better. While there’s no real sense in snapstreaks, users love them. Adults email Snapchat, asking to revive their streak for this one time, even though streaks have no value and take no skill or talent to make one.
Snapchat has kept its users longer than most would expect; let’s hope that never changes.
