In 2014 roughly 2 billion photos were shared every single day. That number has obviously risen with the constant growth of social networks, new social networks coming out, and specifically photo sharing apps such as Instagram, Snapchat, and the like. In particular, Instagram has proved over the years that its photo sharing, commenting, liking, and other notable features is why it is the champion when it comes to photo sharing. Facebook, being a large social network with photos and videos, as well as a plethora of other features has established itself as the king of social media.
Facebook Messenger Day, has broken through to a new audience, where Snapchat has failed to do so.
Facebook Messenger Day is just what the doctor ordered.
- It gives a purpose to my photos.
- It let’s people take a glimpse into my day without having to bombard them on the news feed.
- I don’t have to send everybody photos through messenger or through text.
- Friends & family can simply look at my day.
- I can apply filters, type text on the screen, draw things, and make the pictures funnier.
While in my opinion, Snapchat has literally no purpose, Messenger Day has a great purpose. It allows me to do a few awesome things:
- Stop bombarding people in my news feed
- Post photos that I would never post on Facebook
- Makes my day fun
- Helps me see who engages with me
- Shows who my actual friends are
- It also shows who is interested in my life
The best part is, I don’t have to leave the app to use it, whereas with Snapchat I would have to go between Snapchat and Facebook. I can stay in Messenger to send messages, add photos to my Day, watch peoples’ Days, go on the Facebook news feed, etc.
