I can't begin to tell you how many times I'll be scrolling through Snapchat, watching everyone's stories, and I'll see at LEAST one person posting 20+ snaps of the concert they went to.
I'll be honest, I skip through most people's Snapchat stories. I don't skip through completely, I do still see everything, but videos are way harder to skip past than pictures because they take longer to load.
When there's a series of 5 or more videos, it takes so long to watch it, first of all, and to try to skip past it is a whole ordeal. For those of you unfamiliar to Snapchat, it's a form of social media where you can send pictures, videos, and chats, often shorthanded as "snaps." Pictures and videos range from 1 second to 10 seconds in viewing time.
I always like to say that if I wanted to go to the concert, I would have. Now, I'm guilty of posting concert snaps when my school hosts concerts or something, but my limit is generally 5 or fewer videos. Why? Because if I don't want other people to post entire concerts, why would I think other people want me to post an entire concert?
Not only is it annoying for the viewer, but I'm also sure that it's annoying to the poster too. I sent my best friend somewhere around 25 snap videos on a couple different occasions in the past few weeks (it was easier than setting up a time to call or Skype, okay?).
The time seemed to run out really fast while I was recording and then it took about a minute for them all to send. When you're not on Wi-Fi, this process can take even longer and be even more annoying.
The worst part is that if you're too concerned about recording the concert, you're not focused on actually enjoying it. You're too busy observing through the phone screen, looking through the camera, that you're missing it with your own eyes. And no amount of videos can make up for that.
