Snapped.

I love me some Snapchat and IG stories. It gives me something to do when I’m bored, and at times I get to live vicariously through others. Unfortunately, there are some people who missed the SnapChat etiquette seminar better known as the common sense. Below is my main gripe with video stories, as well as a few suggestions I have for both platforms. 

Fast forward function. Both Snapchat and Instagram need to add a fast forward feature like YouTube has. This is beneficial for both me and the person who made the video, because I lose interest pretty quickly and will stop watching a clip I was initially interested in because it took too long to entertain me or I didn’t have enough time to wait. Whereas, I would’ve at least fast forwarded to certain parts if it allowed me the option to skim through the video. 


The ability to ignore a dmWhen all else fails and people still want to send you bullshit you could give negative fucks about, the universe should allow us to ignore a dm. Sure, we could just choose to not watch it if we already know it’s going to be useless, but this feature is imperative to people who have phone notification OCD like me.
