    I have not been able to get into the snap chat trend of sending duck faces back and forth all day. I just feel strange sending pictures to folks all the time. However I do see the draw as it is nice to receive these types of messages to take your mind off the days tasks even if for a brief moment.

    Snap Chat introduced a new "Discovery" feature earlier this year that allows you to see events around the world as well as ads. You can't disable this feature in the app which is too bad because the thousands of events that are streamed to your feed cause your phone to constantly sync which drains your battery.

    You can disable this feature with a bit of modding. You will need to be rooted, you need titanium backup installed, you need the latest version of SnapChat, plus another version of snapchat which can be found at the link below. The method is super easy head to the link for the directions and files needed.

    1,143 kudos points to you for keeping a straight face and not hinting at what snapchat is REALLY used for. LOL

    Of course people send duck images, but some in an effort to reduce data consumption may choose to just send the bill...

    Aw man, yet another one of those moments where I painfully wish this weren't a family-friendly forum! ARGH!!! :mad:

    EDIT: do we have an Adults-only subforum that nobody told me about?!??!?! :rolleyes:

    No Matt. Closest you'll get to that may be last post wins... But again we're talking PG at worst.

    We don't send duck face photos to each other. A group of us just send random stupid pics of images or things we see.

    There is no need to use it for sexual content.
