White House now on Snapchat


The White House has launched an “Official Story” on Snapchat to provide a behind-the-scenes glimpse of the Administration. The announcement (below) says, significantly, that “Tomorrow, our Official Story will take you behind the scenes of the White House’s State of the Union preparations, with footage and angles you won’t find anywhere else.”

  1. Are you new to snapchat? Even if you are an old hand, you might enjoy this “how to” from the Wall Street Journal:
    Snapchat 101: Learn to Love the World’s Most Confusing Social Network

    “Attention everyone born before 1986: It’s not you, it’s Snapchat. The app, now used daily by 100 million people, requires the same initial concentration as assembling IKEA furniture. There are mysterious icons that look like ancient hieroglyphs, a maze of menus not even Pac-Man could maneuver, secret finger presses. And I haven’t even gotten to the fact that many of the messages on the service self-destruct after you look at them.”
