My computer wouldn’t allow me to open Camtasia for some reason so after a quick google search I found another screen recording download (unfortunately the software didn’t let me see myself while recording, and the file was to large for me to upload). I recorded myself on one of my fav sites Pinterest. These past two weeks have been New York Fashion Week, London Fashion Week, and Milan Fashion Week so there has been a ton of new fashion pins on street style, runway shows, models, after parties, and fashion week hotspots. Some really cool content. I realized after watching this video that I go through my feed very fast, almost like I am just scouring for something to catch my eye and when I do I stop look at it for a while either pin or just move on.
For my walkthrough I decided to show my very non tech savy friend Katie the beauty of Snapchat. The reason I enjoy snapchat is because it is a quick and easy way to stay connected with friends and see what people are up to without much effort. So I explained the basics. Snapchat is a photo/video messaging application to use on your phone. I explained that you make a user name, add any contact or friend through your phone contacts or entering their user name. You can then take a snap of anything you wish, add a caption, filter, or time and then decide how many seconds your want it to be open for the person your sending it too. Next decide who you want to send it to. Snapchat lists your “best friends” (the people that snapchat or receive the most) and press send! Most recently snap stories have become a new fad, where instead of picking people to view your snap, you can post it to your story and have all the your snapchat contacts be able to view it. I helped Katie make a account, add contacts (mostly our sorority sisters) and send her first snap. I realized my own snapchat best friends were friends from home, and my cousins, people I don’t see on a day to day basis.
