Why Snapchat is better than Facebook
Sonali Seth editorial director of USC's Daily Trojan, commented on CNBC's social media on campus series “ What social media platforms are hot?” According to the commentary, the use of social media platforms by millennials is shifting away form networks like Facebook and Instagram. Snapchat on the other hand, lets millennials broadcast their lives only to people that they care about. There's no sense of warped virtual validation that arises via Facebook "likes" or Instagram "hearts" and no social pressure to conform to a public persona. Snapchat avoids the traps of Facebook and Instagram by keeping private lives private — a social network that isn't too social.
