Anyone here follow TPG on Snapchat? His house in the Hamptons is ridiculous. No way that's all from his TPG business, right?

sorry i'm late but yes, i actually only follow him on snapchat.

a- i'm pretty sure the house is his because on one of the snaps he said how much he loves the way he's decorated each room with a different theme.
b- every snap that involves that ugly dog is incredibly annoying
c- i didn't understand anything involving Guatemala
d- pm me if you don't mind giving me your snapcode ;)

Not clue, but fwiu it has something to do with avatars replacing names. - the rest is the same as Instagram.

I could be totally off.

Can someone give me the dummy's version/rundown on what Snapchat is?

basics:
it's a social media app. you can post a picture or a short video of 10 seconds or less. this is your 'story'
people that have 'added' you can see them. they can go back and look at them repeatedly for 24 hours from when you post.
the app can also be used as a secure message center. you can message, chat, call, video call, or sends 'snaps' (pics/videos) back and forth and as soon as you exit the chat, you can't see the conversation.
if any screenshots are taken from the 'story' or private messages, the op gets a notification.
you can choose to save a message and that will be there any time you go back. both parties can see those messages and the other person gets a notification that you saved one of their messages.

privacy:
you can choose who sees your story. it can either be anyone or only people whom you 'follow' as well.
if someone has added you, you can see how they found you. either by your number, by your yellow qr code, or by your username.
you can block people and they won't know it unless they go looking for you
you can unfollow someone and they won't know either
you can delete anything from your story within 24 hours
you can save any of your content to your photo gallery within 24 hours

fun stuff:
the fun thing about snapchat is the weird/cool filters you can have before or after you take a picture. for example when the movie Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles was coming out, they were advertising on snapchat. you were able to put your face on one of the ninja turtles.
they sometimes have flower crowns you can add, different animals, face swapping, etc.
you can also include the time you took the pic, the weather, the speed that you're currently going, geo tags, dates, etc
when taking a video you can choose for it to be in 3 speeds. slo mo, fast, super fast. you can also have it go backwards.

you can only post pics taken through the app, not from your own photo gallery, except you can replace your face with any pic in your gallery that has a face.

it's not that complicated once you're on it for a bit. you figure most things out by watching other snappers and testing it out on your own.

All right, but in short, a quicker way of sending a person (or people) pictures/videos.

nobody wants to make a screenshot if the other person will know. that, however doesn't stop anyone from taking a picture of the phone :)

Haha, I was gonna say that it was created with the intention of being a safer way for people to sext but thought that I'd get some backlash for saying that lol.

Do you really take out another phone every time someone sends you a snap? :o

for people that wanted to take that further there actually used to be a way to send/receive money as well but they've stopped that.

no. i've only ever done that once. i'm just saying that it could be done and then all security is lost

I think I got it.  I can request to follow anyone, but they can choose to deny it, right?  And anyone can request to follow me, and I can allow, deny, or choose what content they see?

there is no denying. they choose to add you. if you've set it up that you allow anyone to follow you they they can see everything in your story. if you have it in your settings that they can only see your story if you've added them too then it will look to them as if you haven't posted anything in the last 24 hours... they won't be able to see anything until you follow back or change your privacy settings.

same with the reverse

you can try and keep up but if it doesn't interest you then it will just be another app that's just taking up space. it's only interesting if you're constantly on it since everything disappears after 24 hours. it's not like Facebook where you can just see everything you've missed over the long weekend.

I hear that it is being used as a social media tool successfully by many businesses.

only if it's geared towards 20 somethings (and teenagers, but they don't usually have the means to purchase anything).

also, another point i forgot to mention is that it's really great for anyone that wants to make a free video call where one or both don't have Facetime. i use it all the time

I don't snapchat, but I think you can turn on airplane mode, take a screen shot, and then the sender won't know.
