There are only two kinds of people in this world: those who prefer Snapchat stories, and those who prefer Instagram
Tag yourself, I’m Snapchat
by Amanda Ross
Before you start bellyaching to "get you a girl that can do both", have a talk with your true self and decide which one is your favorite. Even parents have a favorite child, so I know your ass has a favorite app.
Look, we can all be divided up into two groups: Instagram Story Girls, and Snapchat Story Girls. Here's what it aaaall means:
If you're an Instagram Story Girl….
Have you ever said the words "people underestimate me because of the way I look?" Have you ever purchased multiple VSCO Cam filter packages in a single sitting? Do you relate deeply and personally to that scene in The Devil Wears Prada where Miranda & Co. all seriously contemplate the differences between those two "completely identical" turquoise belts?
(Sidebar: To find that video, I started Googling the words "belt scene" and HORRIFYING THINGS popped up, don't make my mistakes, my children).
If you prefer Instagram stories, you're oriented by aesthetics, art, and beauty. You're probably a Libra or a Taurus or a Pisces and you care very much about your aesthetic. If you have a Tumblr, I'd go out on a limb as to say that it's very popular and equally well-curated.
To you, Instagram Stories are an extension of your actual Instagram. It's well-filtered, well-shot and well-loved by your tons of followers. Think of it as your b-side record: good enough for the album, but not the prime real estate. I'm not an Instagram Story Girl, but I wish I was. This brings me to Snapchat Story Girls.
If you're a Snapchat Story Girl….
Bitch, when can we hang out??? Because I know you're fun as fuck. Snapchat Story Girl are consistently the life of the party. They'll throw it, get it going, Snapchat the shit out of it, and then leave when it's in full-swing without saying goodbye to anyone.
Have you ever lip-synced a J.Cole song while filming yourself? Do you currently have a cracked iPhone, possibly caused by trying to Snapchat a concert, party or riot? Do you wholly and fully identify with everything about "the old Serena" on Gossip Girl?
If you prefer Snapchat Stories, you are lively, fun, loud, funny as fuck and maybe a low-key mess. But in a good way! You always know how to lay the greatest thirst traps, the more hilarious captions for your pictures, the best way to secretly photograph someone wilding out on the subway.
Let's think of it in terms of Kardashians because, like math, they're a universal language.
Kim = Instagram
Kylie = Snapchat
Kourtney = Instagram
Khloe = Snapchat
Kendall = Dead to me
If you're a Facebook Story Girl….
I'm praying for you :///
Finally, Instagram gives us the useful update we’ve been begging for
You can run but you can’t hide
by Jenn Ficarra
No one has ever felt as foolish as still following someone who has unfollowed you on social media. Maybe you want to know because you have a crush on someone. Maybe you want to see if it's a mutual follow. Or maybe you're tired of this person's posts and want to know if you can…
Here’s how to tell when someone’s been stalking your Instagram 👀
They stalk you as much as you stalk them
by Jenn Ficarra
As a completely well-adjusted, normal human, I only have a few requests in this life. Chief among them: I want to know if my crush knows I'm alive and also maybe likes me back. Instagram isn't a miracle worker — it won't be able to flat out tell me if my crush likes me, but…
Why do guys love to feel sorry for themselves when they break up with us?
‘I’m just no good for you, this is torture’
by Una Dabiero
You have not broken up with a straight male unless you've been forced to listen with a broken heart to his laundry list of bad qualities. Whether he's fat, has emotional issues, or isn't smart, he'll find some way to tear himself down while he simultaneously ends your relationship. Maybe he'll say you're too beautiful…
