3 Reasons Snapchat Promotes Productivity

Thursday, August 6, 2015

“Why so dressed up?” Um… Snapchat.

At 1:23pm, I do not take pride in being cocooned in blankets while still being dressed in pajamas. Although occasional lazy days are fundamental to my sanity, I tend to sleep in more than I would like to admit. When I check my phone and have a Snapchat from a cute boy, I do not want to be #justwokeup in the middle of the day. So, I drag myself out of bed and get ready. In result, I do other productive things, whether that be running errands or literally running.

1. People like people who do things

I find myself drawn to people who lead interesting lives. This preference carries into the people I Snapchat. If someone only sends me pictures of Netflix and their computer screen, I will probably lose interest. We all have our "Netflix and chill" days, but not everyday. People would not keep up with the Kardashians if the famous family spent every day in bed. I like to see that people have lives apart from their phones (even if they tend to document that part with their phones).

2. Monkey see, monkey do

When you are Snapchatting a friend in between their job, hobbies, friend gatherings, and family commitments, it encourages you to do the same. People instinctively do what they see others do. When you surround yourself with productive people, you in turn become productive. There is something about receiving Snapchats from 20 different people on their way to work that motivates you to get a job.

3. Are are forced to follow through with plans

When you Snapchat your friend telling them that you are about to go for a run, but you proceed to Snapchat them from the couch for the rest of the day, it takes away your credibility. Also, the famous "whoops, I am stuck in traffic" excuse does not work when you are Snapchatting them selfies of you in bed. 

Let social media be a motivation, not a distraction.
