Virtual Chatting: Snapchat

By: Amberly Romero

Characteristics of Digitization

Timeless Time

Death of Distance

Exposure Selection

Timeless Time

Negate Sequencing:  a picture/video may last as little as 1 second and as long as 24 hours.  Viewers may choose to re-watch, replay, and/or screenshot a given photo/video, if time permits.

Death of Distance

Geographic distance does not matter.  Messages may be sent to anyone in the world with access to the app.  Geography adds to the photo editing process.

Exposure Selection

Anonymity vs. Transparency:  

Owners of snapchat accounts choose how public/private their accounts are by manipulating usernames, "selfies", captions, etc.

Effect of Digitization: Crowdsourcing

Snapchat as Narrative: Live Story

Businesses use photos to tell a story to promote themselves to a massive audience, accumulating the potential for profit

Globalization of Digitization

Snapchat is available to anyone in the world with a smartphone, making it one of the most timeless, decentralized, crowdsourced and globalized sources of digitization
