As Social Media is constantly evolving and modernizing, we find it crucial here at the Ballinasloe Life Team to keep up with the latest trends and technology. Keeping this in mind we have considered incorporating Snapchat.
For those of you who are less familiar with Snapchat, it is a video messaging application created by Stanford University students. Using the application, users can take photos, record videos, add text and drawings, and send them to a controlled list of recipients. Users can also set a time limit for how long recipients can view their Snaps which ranges between one and ten seconds, after which the snap will be hidden from the recipients device. According to Snapchat in May 2014, the app’s users were sending 700 million photos and videos per day, therefore the application has gained huge popularity over the past few years.
We feel Snapchat would be a fun, quick and efficient way to connect with Ballinasloe Life. Local people and even Ballinasloe natives living abroad can send “snaps” to the Ballinasloe Life account and we may post the snaps to our Blog or Facebook page on a weekly/monthly basis. In turn, we hope to connect the local people with one another and also connect them with Ballinasloe itself.
As we are a service providing people with latest news and updates from Ballinasloe, we would really appreciate your opinion. Would you like to see Snapchat for Ballinasloe Life?
Have a great weekend,
