End your Snapchat Streaks and Save Social Media

Snapchat was founded in 2012 as a platform to connect people face to face and create a community which is accessible through your phone. Unfortunately, this seductive system of constant connection is starting to consume individuals in society, one of the main factors to the issue of addiction to Snapchat is the idea of Snapstreaks. Snapstreaks are the counters tagged to every individual snapchat and it proudly displays how many consecutive days the two users have snapchatted. As this number rises, the more obligated a user can feel to keep their streaks going. This is due to either pressure from others or to safeguard a validation of snapchat friendship. We propose to end this vicious cycle by asking users to end their streaks and allow snapchat to be a pleasurable and convenient form of communication once again.
