Japanese Snapchats are like miniature blogs. There are hundreds of thousands of them floating around on the internet, and this is good news for anyone who wants to create their own mini blog in minutes!
Snapchats use one of the best innovations to hit the internet – digital video! This means that you can upload your video to a video sharing site like YouTube, and this will be viewable by millions of people.
You have all the time in the world to record a video of yourself talking about what you want to say to someone. You can tell the person about what you’re wearing, or where you’re going, or how the weather is. Your friends will be able to watch it on their own time.
The great thing about Japanese Snapchats is that you can interact with the video. With traditional blogging you’re not usually allowed to click a button and “quote” something. With this, you can post comments to the video and really get into the nitty-gritty of your conversation with someone.
And then, of course, you can keep the video up for people to see a little bit of your own cultural context and backgrounds. Even better, you can add personal details about yourself and your family in your biofield. Then people can watch and add a comment.
Uploading your video isn’t all that hard. All you need is your webcam. All you need is a web browser. There’s really no other requirements!
To upload your video, visit one of the video sharing sites that offer this type of service. It really is quite simple. Just take a few seconds to register for an account, and then start video uploading. All you need to do is enter some information, and then you’re ready to go.
So, you’ve got your Japanese Snapchats up on the internet, and now you want to start getting people to interact with them. To start, you should try to build relationships with your Japanese friends.
Join a chat room on Facebook. Chat with them, and share photos. That’s the most direct way to find new people to interact with. If you talk to enough people, they’ll want to send you snapshots of themselves too.
And you don’t have to use a special code. People just send snaps to you in the same way that you send snaps to them. This way, you can start building a community around yourself. Eventually, you’ll find others who want to talk about the things that you share in your videos.
It’s a good idea to do these things gradually. The Japanese Snapchats don’t have any social impact right away. You should really start to see the videos at least a month after they’ve started going online. In other words, if you send out your first video in early July, you’ll be pretty far behind if you’re planning to start doing this kind of thing on a larger scale later.
That said, I think it’s a great idea to get some of your Japanese friends together for a little fun. It’s not always the best thing to share photos with each other, but it can be great to make new friends while still staying connected to your own friends. Now that’s what I call “Japanese Snapchat”!
