Debras Dollars It Just Makes Cents!: Streaks? Slide Up!

Streaks? Slide Up!

Do you have Snapchat? Ever received a decorative picture on Snapchat from one of your friends? Well these graphics are called Snapchat streaks. A Snapchat streak is when you send direct snaps back and forth with a friend for several consecutive days. The longer you go without breaking the chain of communication, the longer your streak is. Snapchat rewards longer streaks with special emojis, such as the "100" emoji for streaks lasting 100 days, or a mountain emoji for an extremely long streak. Many teens invest an inordinate amount of time keeping streaks alive. There's nothing more devastating than losing a streak you've put months of work into. Snap streaks have become the default way to measure success on Snapchat, which is famous for its lack of a follower count. But before you go starting streaks with everyone in your recents, know that it's more about quality than quantity. 

Some people just put an "S" with the drawing tool and send it as their streak, while a lot of people try to create super decorative and moving graphics. There have even been competitions for the best streak. I know someone that creates graphics on Snapchat for streaks and teaches other people how to do it too. She is the amazing voice of my Youtube review videos, my daughter-in-law, Ora! See one of our YouTube video's below for some examples of her streaks. 

The voice of our YouTube videos

Here's a little bit about the super talented Ora. She sings, acts, and dances, which in theatre terms is called a "triple threat".  She is going on 15 years as a Girl Scout and graduated College with her Associates in December 2019 and High School this past may 2020. She loves playing video games on her computer and spending time with my son Nicholas. She has worked at McDonald's since April 2019 and recently went to an interview for an administrative assistant for a private academy which is her dream job. We wish her luck!
