More and more of our lives are becoming dependent upon technology. We use it for everything – banking, help with school, discovering news, even grocery shopping. Social networks help us to stay connected and updated on content we desire most. With so much emphasis on technology it makes sense kids would be drawn toward it, since kids love anything that seems interesting and important, especially when adults also think so. To be cool the ultimate sign of ability is pulling off a successful hack. The ultimate hack might just be to be a Snapchat hacker.
Snapchat is a modern Internet sensation. Not many sites achieve their level of success. They are at the top of the hill with names like Facebook and Twitter, though they’ve achieved stunning growth in even faster time. To put it simply Snapchat is hot, hot, hot. That’s what makes them such a cherished target for hacking bragging rights. It’s not only that they have eye popping numbers of users; it’s that their platform is used by celebrities and other notable personalities. These days, it’s a mark of status to belong to one of the giant social networking platforms. People want to see how many others follow you, who love the things you post, like tweets. Even the president of the United States makes news typing out tweets.
This is what makes a successful hack of a platform like Snapchat an irresistible prize for those seeking bragging rights. A successful hack of the right account may go beyond one’s own small circle of friends. It might even make national news! Being a Snapchat hacker is certainly a claim that would elicit wonder and awe from kids of grade school age. It’s something that could make history, and kids absolutely love to be seen as having enormous skill and ability when it wouldn’t be expected.
