KSR’s Guide to Snapchat




We here at KSR are always looking to educate our readers.  Unlike our counterparts down the road, we never want to live in the past by talking about national championships that were so two weeks ago. Everything about KSR, from our site design and attention to what is factual suggests we are always on the cutting edge of technology. And facts.


Tonight I want to continue this trend by providing you a guide to using one of the hottest new apps out there. I’m pretty sure it just came out (5 or 6 months ago). It’s called “Hey Tell” “Draw Something” “Cinegram” “Snapchat”.


For you novices out there, let me answer the question you just asked in your head. A “guide” is something that you read to learn how to use another thing. A “guide” can also tour you around an unknown attraction, such as a cave, museum, or city…


What’s that? You already know what a “guide” is? Well, this is awkward.  Let’s just move on.


KSR’s Guide to Snapchat (The Do’s & The Do Nots):


Do download Snapchat.

Do send pictures and videos to your friends. After all, that’s why you downloaded it in the first place.

Do keep a good mix of stills and videos. Keep your recipients guessing. Keep them wanting more.

Do not try to watch a video when your phone is on vibrate or silenced. You will not be able to hear the sound and you will not be able to watch it again. If you are at work when you are Snapchatting (like most people), use headphones to watch videos because you never know what your crazy friends are going to be saying or doing.

Do send a picture of your socks of the day to your friends.

Do send a picture of what you are wearing. Especially if you get a stain on your clothes. Stains are hilarious!

Do not send pictures of what you are not wearing (especially without the proper lighting). If you absolutely have to send one without clothing and you find the proper lighting, do not include your face in these pictures. Even though these pictures go away forever, people can screenshot them. Speaking of screenshots…

Do not screenshot. It notifies the other person and makes you seem creepy. Truth is, you probably are.

Do send videos of kids you are babysitting singing silly songs like “Hey Soul Sister.”

Do not send videos of kids you are babysitting taking a bath.

Do whatever you want if they are your kids.

Do not Snapchat pictures of your food. That’s what Instagram is for.

Do take duck face pictures.

Do not send duck face pictures.

Do Snapchat weird things your parents do. (Ex. Ironing in curlers, wearing goggles to mow the yard, exercising on a Nordic Trac) Tweet these things, too.

Do use the drawing feature to add bunny ears or other funny bodily features, but do so sparingly. Your Snapchats should speak for themselves a majority of the time.

Do not attempt a conversation over Snapchat. Conversations are to be had through text messaging and twitter direct messages only. NEVER through an actual phone call or face to face. It’s 2013, people.

Do not Snapchat recruits. I know Snapchatting is a young man and young woman’s game, but I’m looking at you Tom Crean. Let the kids have this one. You’ve got enough to worry about learning how to use Twitter.

Do follow these simple guildlines.

Do enjoy Snapchat.

Do Snapchat with me (aaflener). I’ll send you my “Tie of the Day” or a fancy picture of the velcro shoes belonging to my co-worker.


Happy Snapchatting, you guys. And sorry about that whole “guide” misunderstanding earlier.

    Most people who read this blog don’t use snapchat. Other then that, not a bad post

    #2, are you holding a ruler up to your eye trying to measure your iris until it falls out? Or did you mean “gouge?” Dissent is great but keep it civil, especially if your grammar sucks.

    If you listen to the show, you would know that Matt Jones is all over snap chat right now. Anyone tried the Crum Burger at Hooters? You should. Its named for meeeeeee! Dupont Hooters. Look for @FakeTonyVanetti and buy him a beer.
