Snapchat is mainly used by people to send messages with each other through pictures. It is a multimedia mobile application that generally aims to share moments that are currently happening.
It’s also famous for its filters, where people can make themselves appear as if they have ears, snout, or a mouth like that of an animal, particularly dogs and bunnies. The platform’s concept of instant image messaging has been adopted by other social media apps such as Facebook and Instagram.
These two platforms have “Story” features which have the same concept as Snapchat, where users can immediately capture moments on video or pictures and then let their followers view it.
It is similar to Twitter but unlike words, photos and videos are being exchanged on social media. One such netizen made use of the platform to capture her young boyfriend who suddenly lost his life.
According to the unnamed woman (name withheld for privacy), he very much prefers Snapchat, hence her reason to take pictures of him during his wake. The following is an excerpt from her lengthy Facebook status:
“@4am monday October 9 2017 nag chat si [redacted] na [redacted] wala na si janrey iniwan na tau. Iyak ako ng iyak tax kampante pako na baka jowk lang yan di yan totoo gayak agad ako sobrang aga ko tas nung paalis nako nag chat na si ate [redacted] na totoo nga na wala kana yon iyak ako ng iyak habang nag lalakad habang papunta sa bahay nyo bilis bilis ako tas pag ka dating ko sa bahay ni mahal tanong ko kaagad na nasan sya tax sabi NASA kwarto.”
Unfortunately, she did not disclose the details behind his untimely demise. She stated that she has lots of dreams which involved him but now, she has to deal with the fact that he has passed away.
Towards the end of her status, she proclaimed:
“Napakahirap tanggapin na wala ka na (insert emojis) kaso kelangan ehh para sa ikatatahimik mo pero ako Araw, weeks, months baka nga year ehh one year maybe 2yrs.ako mag luluksa pero kakayanin ko mahal ko para sayo (insert emojis)
