There’s Definitely No Way for Snapchat’s New “Snapkidz” Feature to Go Totally Wrong

You know it's going to appeal to today's youths because they put a Z at the end.

As we all likely know, Snapchat is a phone app that allows you to send self-destructing picture messages to your friends. Naturally this means that it's literally full of naked pictures, so your bratty little smartphone-wielding 8-year-old with hasn't been able to join in the fun. Well, not anymore -- now there's a feature in iOS that allows children under the age of 13 to use a protected form of the app called "Snapkidz," so your kid can take stupid pictures to their heart's content! Not that they can then send them anywhere, though.

OTR Chrome Extension’s SnapChat for Work, Hopefully With Fewer Genitals

If your interoffice communication is getting a little dull, try the OTR Chrome extension. It's basically SnapChat for work.

We've talked about SnapChat before. It's a photo-sharing app that deletes the pictures you send after a few seconds, so people use it mostly for pictures of their genitals. That's not very appropriate for business, so someone went ahead and made a SnapChat-like Chrome extension that lets you send pictures and messages to coworkers.

A Dick Pic is Forever: Saving SnapChat Photos for Posterity Just Got Even Easier

What do a diamond and a picture of your naughty bits have in common? If you answered "They're both romantic things to give to your sweetheart," you are wrong. If you said "They will be around forever," though -- you're right! That's because a new workaround for SnapChat -- the mobile service that lets you send a photo message that will delete itself, Mission Impossible-style, just seconds after being received and has thus become a great way to send photographs of your genitals to other people -- makes it way easier for recipients to save those photos until the end of time, or at least until the person who sent it to them in sophomore year tries to run for Congress.

Mark Zuckerberg Supposedly Used His Voice for Facebook Poke App’s Notification Sound

Facebook's one of those companies that's notorious for attempting to purchase any other company that they determine to be within their wheelhouse. It's pretty much the driving reason behind their acquisition of Instagram. If you can't beat 'em, buy 'em. That's why when Snapchat, an app that sends self-destructing pictures, hit the market, it's not surprising to learn that Facebook tried to acquire them. When that didn't pan out, Facebook built their own Poke app, which is basically the same thing. What's actually interesting about the app is that Mark Zuckerberg himself supposedly worked on it, and even used his own voice for the notification sound.

Facebook Will Launch Convenient Sexting Feature, What Could Go Wrong?

Facebook is rumored to be launching an app to compete with Snapchat. If you're not familiar with Snapchat, it's a photo messaging service that sets itself apart from other ways of sending your friends photos by having pictures "self-destruct" Inspector Gadget-style after a preset length of time -- usually just a few seconds. Why would anyone need to send a photo that self-destructs? The only answer I can think of is for sending naked pictures to people, and I'm not alone in that assumption, as Snapchat has developed a reputation as the "sexting app."
