The Facets of Snapchat
Timeless time is a characterization of digitalization. Snapchat allows its users to either to communicate synchronously or asynchronously
Synchronous communication means that snapchat users can communicate in real-time. Snapchat just added a feature recently that allows its users to video chat face to face. I've used the new application myself and it is quite amazing. The only disadvantage is if you are trying to talk to someone your interested in over it, is that you do not have a lot of time to formulate what you want to say and be flirtatious.
Asynchronous communication (my preferred type of communication) on snapchat allows its users to open and reply to snapchats freely and on their own time.With this snapchat function one can freely send pictures to people or chat with text.
Death of Distance
Death of Distance refers to how information communicated with digital technology overcomes time zones and how we can transmit information today and almost the speed of light. For example, I could send a snapchat right now at 4pm and my friend in Colorado could receive and see it right away at 5pm mountain time.
Poly-directionality is a characterization of digitalization that refers to the idea that you can express your ideas with digital technologies to one person or many people. Additionally it refers to the idea that many people can communicate to one person or to many people. Snapchat has poly-directional properties because it allows you to send snapchats to one person or to many people.
This is an example of how you can send a snapchat to multiple people
Exposure selection refers to the digital characteristic that allows technology users to choose what they can expose and who they can expose it to. Snapchat is different from other social media in the aspect that your snapchat friends can't see who else you snapchat and what you have snapchatted. Snapchat also has a feature that allows the user to block friends in order to prevent them from snapchatting you.
