    Does anyone in the UK snapchat? I live in America but I'll be coming to England for uni in a few months. Snapchatting is really popular in America so I was just wondering.

    Snapchatting is an app where you can send pictures to your friends for ten seconds or less and attach messages to them. It's extremely popular in the states haha it's very common for you to see people taking random selfies in public for snapchatting.

    So it's basically sexting without MMS charges?

    I guess some people do use it for that but my friends and I use it to send each other stupid faces or an embarrassing picture. Or if a message won't go through we can snapchat over wifi

    sounds hilarious, but it could easily be used for the other reasons too though surely

    I don't understand how different it is to Kik or whatsapp? The only reason I've "needed" to use Kik over normal messaging is because I had to send a picture to someone (of a business card)

    The other reason is, because I talk to people here, on Kik messenger, and for people who don't have unlimited text messages. Literally, the only real reason I have Kik/Whatsapp is because other people use them.

    Id happily use bog standard messaging for normal texting (Apps are good for pictures though, but I very rarely send those)

    Difference with Snapchat is that you can edit the picture and write/draw on it and colour it in etc... And unlike whatsapp, the picture is only displayed for a limited time (set by the sender) so you can send a picture of you naked and the receiver wont be able to keep the picture, it will be displayed for X seconds and then disappear. Although that's completely flawed because you can just screenshot on an iPhone...

    I hate Snapchat, it's very boring and I honestly couldn't care for 95% of the pictures sent. I deleted my account for it yesterday...

    At first it was fun, but receiving vain selfies every half an hour from girls at my Uni is just plain annoying. I don't really care what you look like in the morning, or after you've gotten ready, or what you're making for lunch... :argh:

    STAHP!
