A few weeks ago my nieces taught me to SnapChat. They said it was how they would talk to me because I asked them why they stopped texting me and they told me nobody texted anymore. They all SnapChat. They are 10 and 8. Yes, I am officially the old fogey.
So as the good aunt, I learned how to use selfie filters and make videos and am now a SnapChatter. I don't understand it, but I amuse myself with stupid selfies.
Then last week I read an article in the Wall Street Journal about SnapChat Streaks. SnapStreaks. THE WALL STREET FREAKING JOURNAL was writing about SnapChat. I had to do it right? It's a metric and was in The Journal. How hard would it be to write someone everyday in an app. I Google Chat and text people everyday, it's one more mode of communication. I can do this, people have streaks of 200-300 days.
It has now been three days since I've attempted to do a streak and I have failed twice. Does one day count as a streak? Because it better. I don't have anything longer than that so far... I am getting better at the selfie filters though.
