Most social media platforms nowadays have an option for a dark/night theme such as Instagram, Tik Tok, and many more. It not only just looks really cool but it strains your eyes less during night time, which is why these night themes came to be.

So what actually is dark mode? Dark mode is an option every big name brand is adding to their online media, its a trend, it helps maintain your ocular health, and just looks cool.

Firstly, the amount of Snapchat users that use the app to talk to friends at night time is immeasurable, and the amount of damage the white screen is doing to their eyes in dark environments leads to pain and can deteriorate vision prematurely. I think I speak for everyone when I say that adding a dark theme to this widely used media platform will spark joy in all of its users and assist us in maintaining healthy vision. According to studies, looking at screens such as the bright white snapchat background can result it the following symptoms: eye discomfort, headaches, itchy eyes, dry or watering eyes, burning sensations, changes in colour perception, blurred vision and difficulty focusing. If this isn't enough evidence in itself to make a dark theme, I don't know what is.

Secondly, dark themes actually save battery power! Not only will you be able to snapchat all your friends more but it helps to assist in cutting down on energy consumption and lessens your carbon footprint. Even if you don't really care about the planet you are living on, which is on fire, melting, intoxicating life and becoming uninhabitable, why not just pretend you do to be trendy.

Thirdly, dark themes greatly decrease the amount of blue light you are experiencing. Some of you may be wondering why blue light is so bad, well it suppresses the secretion of melatonin, a hormone needed for sleep, so if you want a good nights sleep you want to be keeping away from blue light as much as possible. Why do you think car dashboards illuminate blue?

In conclusion, dark themes have many benefits, some I haven't even mentioned. It saves battery, helps maintain ocular health, provides you with a better nights sleep, but mostly, people just want it!
