Are you struggling to stand out in the world of snapchat? Do you wish you knew what people find annoying on snapchat? Are you tired of the same old crap? Want to learn what a self-proclaimed snapchat master deems as unworthy of snapping? If you answered yes to even one of these questions then look no further! I've compiled a list of things to stop snapchatting (if you want to be one of the cool kids). And I know you want to be cool...right?
1. The road
I know what a road looks like and I know what a traffic jam looks like. This snap, however boring, has got accident written all over it. Alright cool, you're on your way to the beach. Now watch the darn road.
2. The gym
I can't wait for the day when gyms ban all cell phones. It may surprise some people, like those who don't work hard, but everyone else in there is there to get a good workout in. The gym isn't a social hangout place and the workout isn't that challenging if you're taking pictures of your "gains" throughout the exercise.
I'm okay looking at one quick three second picture of you at a Taylor Swift concert, but once you've snapped me videos of "Bad Blood", "Blank Space", "Love Story", and every other song she's put out in the past six years, you're done. Call it quits. This is over three minutes of footage. I could have made a sandwich in those three minutes. Now they're gone. I don't understand, you're at a concert. Put your phone down and enjoy yourself. Music was meant to be experienced live, not through a two by four inch screen. And then some people snap themselves dancing with their friends but I can only make out about two of the dozen BFFs you're dancing with because it's so dark and is filmed like a six year old on a sugar rush.
4. The weather
Snapchat should be an outlet for sending stuff that isn't obvious. If I want to see the rain pouring I'll turn my head at a 90 degree angle to see the precipitation through the window. Plus there's only so many filters you can put on the snow falling down.
5. People I don't Know
You just killed all the vibes by sending me a picture of you and your homies whom I've never met. I don't know who Pete and Cindy are; I only want to snapchat you. This kind of snap just ends the interaction. What am I going to snap back, a picture of my imaginary friend that I colored in?
6. Basic food dishes with the caption "Chef (your name)"
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but you're not a chef if all you did was toast a bagel, spread cream cheese on it, and add that filter that makes everything look so ridiculously bright.
7. 0 MPH
What does this filter even mean? Are you traveling at a speed of 0 miles per hour? But isn't that like 99% of snaps?
8. Panorama shots of scenic views
Making me jealous is definitely a cardinal sin of snapchat etiquette. Next time you're at the Bahamas from your balcony or getting your hot dogs or legs tan game on, spare me the snap of the beautiful ocean water while I'm on my couch wearing a wife-beater and athletic shorts.
9. Anything that looks even remotely close to this
10. Or this
11. Anything fuckboy-ish
