Snapchat is one of the latest social media sites to join the ranks. The site is popular with teens since it lets them a text message and sends photos and short videos, known as ‘snaps’ to their friends and followers. It is a lot of fun on the site and I do spend some time playing around with it. My teenagers are mostly using the site, however, and have taught me a few tricks and fun things along the way. Here’s a look at some of the ways to trick friends and followers, get more followers, and otherwise enjoy the time you spend on Snapchat.
These are My Confessions
Where better to share a big secret than on Snapchat, where a one-second snap gives your fans just enough to pique their curiosity and cause them to want to know more? You can definitely have all eyes on your when a false confession is posted during this short snap.
Can You Hear Me Now?
If you want to make people go nuts, cause them to that their phone isn’t working. Mumble words in a video rather than speaking them aloud. You may not see them going nuts trying to adjust their volume and figure out why they cannot hear you, but rest assure they’re busy worrying and wondering for a few seconds of time.
Peanut Butter Selfie Time
Forget the jelly, it’s time to take some selfies! It is just that type of world that we live in and selfies are absolutely amazing to most people. Which angle shows your best features? But, don’t go into the bathroom to snap away. Instead, choose locations relatively close to other people. Many of them will think that you are taking their photograph. It is such a good and easy prank sure to make you laugh.
A Vacay Picture
Take a picture of a beach photo that you find on a stock site. Any beach that catches your eye is acceptable for the photo. Place yourself in front of the beach using special photoshop or other software and friends will think that you’ve gone to a faraway island. They’ll want to know the scoop and will certainly provide all the likes that you want.
Let’s Get Married
But only pretend. Post an engagement photo in your Snap and watch people like, comment, and eagerly question who the special person is and the big day. Be sure to remain mum and let the people think and wonder for some time before you fill them in on your dirty little secret.
Snapchat is a site that is worth taking a look at. Though it isn’t right for every user many people find it worthwhile and some even like to use it more than they use Instagram, even once they’ve bought followers. Take the time to check it out for yourself. Use some of the tricks that my teens use and the site is sure to bring the same fun and delight that you’re looking to find.
