This afternoon I was surfing the web and as usual ended up on Buzzfeed, one of my favorite websites. A definition of Buzzfeed taking directly from the internet states that,
“BuzzFeed is an internet news media company. Founded in 2006 in New York City as a viral lab by Jonah Peretti, the company has grown into a global media and technology company providing coverage of topics like politics, DIY, animals and business.” -Wikipedia
What I was so excited about was the funny article I stumbled across that combines two of my favorite things, Snapchat and the Netflix original series Orange is the New Black.
Now, although I’m pretty confident you all know what Snapchat is, for those of you who don’t know, Snapchat is an app that can be downloaded on your smartphone. The purpose behind it is to send goofy pictures back and fourth to the people who add to your friend list. The awesome part about snapchat is that after 10 seconds or less (depending on what you set the time at) your picture disappears and can never be viewed again.
A few features are the ability to add a filter to your “snap” and add text or draw directly on the image. Things I commonly draw on my snaps would include
- weird animals
- or circles around what the focus of my snap is
All I can say about Orange is the New Black is, if you have Netflix, and haven’t watched this series, you NEED TO. It’s very mature material, but the show is addicting and rendered very well by the director and actors involved. It also does a great job at representing what actually goes on inside a prison system.
If you have watched the series, please enjoy this article that shows 21 Snapchats that would be sent if you were in the show, witnessing all the crazy stuff that goes on in a women’s jail.
