Am I too old for SnapChat?
Well, I am 46. Most likely I am.
It certainly took a while to get things working (make memory/space on my cell, install it, sign up for an account verify phone, email…). Then, the real challenge came along: the pet challenge. Well, I guess my has an even shorter attention span than SnapChat users, as she could not look at the camera for enough seconds. So, there was not enough time for the system to “recognize” her face and apply the funny filters. With this restless puppy, I ended up simply taking the picture and applying a “location” filter after the fact.
I confess I had fun! I was laughing with my distorted face pictures, white mouse face, etc. But 10 seconds, seriously?
I had a hard time thinking of instructional uses for SnapChat. Maybe I would start my online class with a introduce yourself game in SnapChat, I would not go further than that.
I understand that is where young people are, but how about using YouTube and/or Periscope instead?
I think we could meet halfway…
What do you think?
