Live cams and dating social network
Last year, Snapchat started to curate what it first called “Our Story” and is now called Live Stories.
The format is an amalgamation of snaps, submitted mostly by users and assembled by Snapchat staff.
Sites like Twitter and Facebook are part of an internet phenomenon known as ‘social networking’.
My first experience with a Snapchat Story was in college at the University of Tennessee, from an anonymous account called vol_snaps (we’re the Volunteers).
This can be positive or negative depending on the nature of the community created.
Since users access these sites from their own homes, they can sometimes forget that the internet is really a public space.
Unlike an IP camera (which connects using Ethernet or Wi-Fi), a webcam is generally connected by a USB cable, or similar cable, or built into computer hardware, such as laptops.
The term "webcam" (a clipped compound) may also be used in its original sense of a video camera connected to the Web continuously for an indefinite time, rather than for a particular session, generally supplying a view for anyone who visits its web page over the Internet.
