Understanding Snapchat

Do you have trouble understanding Snapchat? Yeah. Us too.

I’m trying to understand Snapchat. All the kids are into it, but it confuses me.

The latest version of Snapchat allows you to make goofy animations of your face. Here’s a video from Buzzfeed of people using… well, they’re called New Selfie Filters.

The new filters were introduced in September but I didn’t notice because I don’t use Snapchat. Mostly this is because it baffles me. That said, these animations are very easy to use and pretty funny. Think Emojis, but animated, and with your face on them. We’re all doomed, but at least we can make short video clips of ourselves puking up rainbows before the inevitable apocalypse.

Want to puke rainbows or put horns on your head? This is how to use the new Snapchat Selfie Filters.

What We’ve Figured Out So Far

First: get the latest version of the Snapchat app on your mobile device (iOS or Android).

Second: switch the camera to Selfie Mode. Usually this is a little symbol with arrows on it in the upper right corner of the screen.

Third: hold your finger over your face. Not your ACTUAL face. The image of your face on your phone or tablet. When you do this, a bunch of little images should appear at the bottom of your screen. Scroll through them until you find one that you like.

Fourth: hold down the red Record button and make your video.

Fifth: send it to someone.

Having trouble? Leave a comment and we’ll try to help. Don’t be embarrassed; it took us way longer to figure out than it should have. But that’s OK. We’re good enough, we’re smart enough, and doggone it, people like us.
