Snapchat has attracted users and funders with its offer of photo flashing: the opportunity to send a photo to someone but have it "self-destruct" within 1 to 10 seconds. The promise of consequence-free sexting is attractive enough that the app is currently the fourth most popular in the iTunes store.
Teens are reportedly flocking in droves to Snapchat. According to my colleague J. Its founders, it should be noted, claim that risque photos are not fueling the app's growth. However, please do take note of their self-selected promotional image, at right. I hate to tell you this, but there is no such thing as safe sexting. Here's a few reasons to think thrice before sending off a sexy snap using the app. The assumption about Snapchat users is that they're using the app to take and send naked photos.
So, you might assume that those they're corresponding with are very, very close friends. Intimate friends. And the app has chosen to share a list of each user's most frequent correspondents with the world, Google Buzz style. Though the snap self-destructs, the person viewing it can still grab a copy by taking a screenshot or by taking a photo with another device. The app tries to prevent the former with a tattletale feature. Says Buzzfeed : "When a user attempts to take a screenshot of another's Snap, the photo's sender is notified — but the screenshot still exists on the other user's phone, where it can be shared with the rest of the world.
Which brings us to three. Of course, if there is an app deed for people to sext one another, it will inspire a blog deed to archive those sexts. Hello, Snapchat Sluts , a new Tumblr devoted to posting naked photos shared via Snapchat.
It was created, according to Gawker , on Monday "by enterprisingly sleazy party photographer Kirill Bichutsky. Snapchat Sluts looks hacked, but creator says he took it down. The photos featured on the short-lived site were supposedly self-submitted by willing ladies. Regardless, the Internet forces-that-be have intervened to protect the not-so-innocent. The Tumblr's scandalous pics have been replaced by random images and posts. A post at the top of the says, "How did I get this url?
I guess we'll never know. Of course, blogs deed to host nude photos spawn and replicate like rabbits. I'm sure another version of "Snapchat Sluts" will be with us soon. As usual, I'll remind you that sending nude photos is a tad bit unwise. If you must send them, bear in mind Gawker's "time-honored rules of sexting: No identifiable clothing. No noticeable furniture.
