Snapchat represents the dialectic of our times. We want to be in public but share in private, the latter never guaranteed.
Just last night, Kim Kardashian released a Snapchat recording featuring Kanye and Taylor Swift. In it, Taylor consents to Kanye’s using her likeness in a controversial track “Famous.”
🤔 Evidence via the “ephemeral” network known as Snapchat which recently announced a feature called ‘Memories’. The dialectic.

When celebrities spy on each other, it reconfirms the deepest worries of everyday people. We can document anything and everything with a simple mobile recording. Of course, there’s always a flip side. The advancements in technology also enable individuals to expose ongoing police brutality.
Proof results as a consequence of any action or inaction. But it only becomes a dilemma when we make it one.
