I used Snapchat to document my musings and findings at BETT 2017. I had a plan before I started but due to the livestream nature of Snapchat I digressed slightly. I tried to keep it as coherent as possible while touching on the different themes we’ve been discussing over the past couple of weeks.
I chose to use Snapchat because there was much discussion about how we enhance ourselves online. Snapchat has those features already built-in, without any need for editing tools.
On a technical note:
I was disappointed that IFTTT did not link to my Snapchat account. I suspect the impermanence of Snapchat contradicts IFTTT’s purpose. One of the reasons I like Snapchat is because it is fleeting. I don’t have to catch up or feel the pressure of looking at content I’m not interested in like I do with other social media sites. I tried to get IFTTT to feed into this through You Tube but, alas, my formula only works for vidoes I’ve liked and not with content I’ve created.
