Snapping in Real Time is a New Hyperconnectedness

From texting to status updates, photo sharing and hash tags... Sure, everyone’s on WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, Twitter and Instagram too. But Snapchat is where people share what’s happening in their lives in real time. For hyperconnected #teens, snapping is like talking—only with videos, doodles, and filters.

Spectacles: the camera-glasses that have become the season’s must-have millennial accessory. They capture the world the way people see it—which is thrilling to watch.
