I kind of use it sometimes now, it's pretty dumb but can alleviate boredom during the work day

I snapchated a photo of the coffee machine here at work to a former colleague earlier today. Mad stuff like that

Send photos to people, they can only view them for a set amount of time (5 seconds, say) and then the photo is gone for good.

its like he said! you will get a notification to say youve a new snapchat from dwayne lets say, then you click on it and its either a pic or video that you can only look at once and for about 5-10 seconds. the pic/video isnt saved so perfect opportunity for people to send dick pics and the like

Would people not just take a screenshot before opening something in case it's good and deleting that photo from album if it's shit?

you can screenshot, yeah

the person will know if you've screenshot too

You've two choices with your snaps. Either sending them to certain people, for between 1-10 seconds, where they can only open them once. Or you can add them to 'your story' which means they're available to see by all your followers for 24 hours

This story of the downed flight has kind of washed over me until you just said this.
