I,personally, prefer Snapchat because Instagram copied Snapchat’s filters,messaging system and camera. The maindifference between the two is that in Instagram you have an account on whichyou can add a profile photo, bio, website and your name, but on Snapchat youhave only a profile “video” and your username.
In contrast, Snapchat has “snaps” that youcan only take from the “snapchat camera” on the app. You can take only photosand videos, then add different filters such as the location you are in, the time,the date and much more. These are the filter you can use for the back camera,there is more on the front camera.
You can choose filters for your face. Themost popular ones are the “dog-filter” and “flower-crown”. Videos can bechanged by adding filters as well. For example, slow-motion, time-lapse and differentsound settings may be used. Text may be added on anything as well. Snapchatregularly updates its filters due to the different events happening throughoutthe world. This make Snapchat a universal media, everyone all over the worldcan use it without being discriminated from where they are and theirnationality.
To begin with, Instagram has “directmessage” as its messaging system. The photographs and videos are completely acopy from Snapchat. You can send a photo or video in two ways; either “allowreplay” or “view once”.
The messages, on the other hand, can be “unsent”. Butthe person who you sent it to may already save it by taking a screenshot of thechat. In addition, Instagram has its own way of posting. Everyone has anaccount where you can see all of the posts of that person, unless he or shedeletes or archives it. You can post photos, videos, boomerangs and multiplephotos at one time.
People can like and comment on your posts. Nowadayssocial networks are very widely used types of media. Instagram and Snapchat areapps that almost everybody has on their phone or computer.
Some people arguethat Instagram is better than Snapchat, while other think the other way. The propertiesI’m going to go over are their messaging systems, way of posting and their specialfeatures. In this essay, I’m goingto compare the two media for all their positive and negative features.Comparing the Two Enemies
