The Top 25 Social Networking Sites People Are Using

http://webtrends.about.com/od/socialnetworkingreviews/tp/Social-Networking-Sites.htm Snapchat - http://webtrends.about.com/od/Iphone-Apps/a/What-Is-Snapchat.htm One of the most unique things about Snapchat is the “self-destructing” feature for photos a few seconds after photos have been viewed. For example, when you chat with a friend by sending them a photo, the photo is instantly deleted seconds after it’s been opened by the recipient. Saving Snapchat Screenshots The general rule of Internet sharing goes something like this: if you put it on the web, it will be there forever – even if you delete it later. It’s reassuring to know that Snapchat content is automatically deleted soon after it’s been viewed, but there are still ways to capture that content and save it… forever. According to the FAQ section on the Snapchat website, users are notified if any of their recipients try to take a screenshot of any of your Snapchats. Screenshots can indeed be captured if a user does it quickly, and the sends is always notified about it right away. In late December of 2012, a security flaw was brought to our attention. BuzzFeed actually published a full tutorial on how you can save and upload all the Snapchats (or content from rival clone Facebook Poke) straight to your computer. Both Snapchat and Facebook released statements saying that they were working on addressing the security issue Although it reminds us a lot of SMS texting, the app works with your data plan or WiFi connectivity when sending and receiving Snapchats. Keep in mind that once a Snapchat has expired, there’s no way you can look at it again. Snapchat Stories A new feature was released on Snapchat that allows users to publicly post photos or videos for a 24-hour period of time.
