Surprise! The #1 Word Used To Describe Snapchat By College Students Is “Narcissistic”

Surprise! The #1 Word Used To Describe Snapchat By College Students Is "Narcissistic"

A new survey found that only 2 percent of college students sext via Snapchat, shocking middle-class baby boomers who thought they knew everything about “kids these days.” Sumpto, an online marketing company, has found that 37 percent of students use it for “creativity,” whatever that means. Making festive doodles with its Microsoft Paint-esque tool, maybe? Another 27 percent uses it to keep in touch — what a novel concept! The funniest (and most telling?) discovery is that the word college kids use most to describe Snapchat is “narcissistic.” Are they saying that Snapchat is narcissistic in general or they become narcissistic when using it? Let’s assume it’s a little bit of both, since Snapchat is much a bigger enabler for self-obsession than, say, the phone itself. Would you call your best friend to tell her that your barista just created the best foam latte heart you’ve ever seen and it matches your heart-patterned sweater? No friends, you would not. You would Snapchat a picture of it to everyone you know, and yes, that would qualify as using it for “creativity” because a selfie with quality composition is no simple feat. [NYMag.com]

A How-To Guide To Using Emojis In Your Dating Life

Now that any online dating experience will eventually escalate to mobile messaging (whether What’s App, iMessage, or How About We’s app), it’s not enough to have mastered the English language. We live in an emoji world now. Originally added to iOS for Japanese teenagers, the diverse set of smileys is now used by people of all ages around the world. Emojis can function as avoidance, word substitution, or whimsy. But just as you choose your words carefully, you wouldn’t want to fling the octopus symbol around with abandon. Your latest Tinder match might assume you’ve got a fetish.

In his New York Times column, Nick Bilton recounted his friend’s emoji mishap, in which the woman involved would type flirtatious messages via emoji (the flamenco dancer, a martini) and her male counterpart responded with the thumbs-up icon. While the guy thought he was responding positively, the girl assumed she was being prodded into the friend zone. Some emojis are ambiguous, and they should be used with awareness of the situation. Our brief guide: Keep reading »

teen boys and sexually aggressive flirting

For a long time, eyebrow-arching and pearl-clutching over “hookup culture” has focused on young women: they will feel used by young men and come to believe they can only derive value in themselves from their sexuality. Such concerns have been roundly and fairly criticizing as portraying young women as victims lacking in agency, or worse, in need of a paternalistic watchful eye.

There has been less of a focus on how hookup culture affects young men. According to a piece by the usually-spot-on journalist Abigail Pesta, writing for NBCnews.com, there is “an increasing confusion among boys about how to behave” and experts say “boys who engage in this kind of sexualized behavior say they have no intention to be hostile or demeaning — precisely the opposite. While they admit they are pushing limits, they also think they are simply courting.”

Oh dear. Keep reading »

It’s an exciting day in the app world. According to TMZ, Sydney Leathers has signed a six figure endorsement deal to be the new face of iHookup, a mobile app for “casual dating based on sexual chemistry.” (I think that might be code for NSA sex?) Her duties will include having an active profile and regularly interacting with users. It’s not clear what kind of interactions exactly. Sexting, I suppose. “It’s all about that instant gratification and hooking up with the right person at the right time. Sydney seems to have that nailed down!” said a rep for the company. Well, I think this might be her best business move yet. It sounds like she’ll be leveraging her skills and talents. [TMZ] Keep reading »
