I have been on the Internet for 15 years, but I am often behind the times when it comes to keeping up with the many new applications that come out each year, even when they are very popular. It is very common for my friends to use programs for many months before I get around to it. This was especially true of Snapchat, which is a shame because it is a program that I have had so much fun with. Recently, friends pointed out that there is a Snapchat hack that some people use in conjunction with the main program. I am just beginning to learn about it now.
I suppose most people pick up on these programs quickly. But it has only been the last couple of years that I started using a mobile phone. Perhaps it is my age, but I have noticed that very young people pick up on technology so quickly. First, I really not want a phone. I get enough calls at work all day long and often tried not to spend a lot of time on my regular home phone at night so that I would be free to do things without being tethered to the phone every time it rang. But friends pointed out that having a cell phone is very important for safety purposes when you are out and about around the city. So, I gave in, bought one and am finally becoming comfortable with it.
Friends then told me that I need to sign up for Snapchat because they all use it. I have had a lot of fun with it. The premise of the app is that you can post photos to it that only your friends will see, and then the photo disappears from the network. This means that friends allegedly cannot save embarrassing photos to their own phones of you after they see it. But the new hack that has come out will help people to save the photos before they disappear.
