Well, not everyone understands what all the terms used on this platform refer to. Understanding such terms will help you navigate the app with ease and even attract more Snapchat followers. Here are a few of the terms:
‘Chat’ – this refers to the videos and or photos that you send to your friends only.
‘Story’ – you can create a story on snapchat by taking videos of photos within a timeline, stitching them together and sending them out in sequence. A story may be viewed by your friends as well as random snapchat followers within a span of 24 hours.
‘Live Events’ – this uses a similar concept to the snap stories. However, a larger number of users contribute to a live event than in a snap story, where only one user is contributing. Live events are mostly stories covering big events that are taking place at the present time.
As such, any snapchat user attending the event in question is allowed to contribute their photos and videos to the thread. Afterwards, only the best or the most entertaining pictures/videos are selected from the submitted ones. With these live events, the platform is aiming at outdoing television.
