Snapchat vs. Instagram. Which is better? This is a heated debate among middle schoolers. Many students start using these social media apps when they are in middle school. West Middle School has lots of users on the apps. Both are great for communication and entertainment, but students can’t decide which app is better.

Instagram is an app where people put lots of time and effort into their photos. However, there can be spam accounts. Spam accounts are when people post a mass amount of pictures daily without putting much effort into their post. Instagram allows people to follow their friends and lots of celebrities.

Snapchat, on the other hand, is all about snapping a quick photo and sending it to your friends. This app is all about friend communication.

Eugene Brown is a 7th grader at West that uses both social media apps. He personally likes Instagram more because there is a map on Snapchat that you can see people’s location at all times. Eugene doesn’t like the idea of people knowing his location on Snapchat. He says he goes on Instagram for about 2 minutes before he goes to bed to scroll through memes.

Ryan Peters is another 7th grader at West with both social media apps as well. He has been on Instagram for about 2 years. He says social media has affected his life in a good way. Social media helps him connect with people and helps him make more friends. Ryan says he uses Snapchat to communicate with friends and Instagram to stay updated on sports. On average, he says he checks Snapchat 5 times a day and Instagram 3.

Ryan states, “Some friends told me it was a cool app that you could send pictures on.”  That is the reason he got a Snapchat account. He also states that kids should not be talking to strangers on social media because a stranger could possibly track you down and do some crazy and weird things.

What do you think? Which app takes the upper hand? It is definitely a touchy topic and there are many mixed opinions about it.

    I think Instagram is better. I met a really good friend of mine on Instagram. Her name is Marifeil and she is so sweet. She lives in Australia and we want to meet each other we are both in the same grade and we both love singing and music. Anyways I think Instagram is a good way to connect with people and get to know them better outside of school.

    I agree with Lucy. It would be really creepy if someone could track my location at all times on Snapchat.
