I have a sneaking suspicion that people who are really, really good on Instagram are actually kind of boring to be around (and also probably stand on chairs at brunch a lot to get those ubiquitous overhead table shots). Snapchat, on the other hand, is messy and fun, which is my general aesthetic. I like that you can’t manipulate your life on it to quite the same extent you can on Instagram, and I also like that I can cover my zits with a sparkle emoji when I’m sending dumb selfies.
This is all just to say that I'm very excited to launch our Snapchat channel, even despite this warning from familyshare.com.
When Dan and I talked about the best way to introduce the account, the focus was always on our contributors, which is why, for the next few weeks, we’ll be handing the account over to some of your favorite xoJane editors and writers.
They'll answer burning questions like: Does Tynan take off his makeup before bed? Is Claire's bar as insanely well-stocked as we think? Who on the xo staff has the cutest pet? Of course, if there’s something specific you want to know, you can always ask them.
You can search for xojanedotcom in the app (or click that link on your mobile device), or take a snap of the code below. If there’s anything in particular you want to see on our Snapchat in the future, you can tell me about it in the comments, or send me a snap at heycvh. I’ll send you my best Time Inc. Office Selfie in return.
