Snapchat’s Bright Ideas: Dylan Evans' Travel Show

I was looking through the news this morning when I saw that Dylan Evans, a social media star has been given his big break… to host a Snapchat travel show.

Oh.

liverpoolecho.co.uk

So he’s not hosting a real show. Because, each “clip” has to be 10 seconds long, it’s limited to small screens and hardly anyone actually watches the Snapchat stories from beginning to end anyway. Besides, these travel shows first started in December 2014. So yeah, whatever. Well done Dylan.

Evans had to compete against others to win the position and he swooped in and won the deal of a life time. His first trip is across the East Coast of Australia, which is long way from his home town in Liverpool.  

The star (who I had never heard of) gets about 10-20k views per video on his channel and has a total fan base of about 250k. He seems to have gained the majority of his virtual fame through prank calls.

I’m not sure how a travel show really works on Snapchat. I guess it just a series of updates on a story that will make us wish we were also swimming in The Great Barrier Reef. Just the feeling you need on a dreary Monday morning.

I know I’m being particularly cynical today, but social media “fame” is just getting on my wick now.  I think it all started when I saw Zoella merchandise in Superdrug a few weeks ago.

Maybe I’m just bitter because my tweets don’t generate me wonga. Or perhaps, I’m just skeptical about the world these kids are in and when they're actually going to face reality.

As if Snapchat forcing someone else’s holiday pics on me wasn’t enough to get me to delete the app, I’ve also spent far too much of my precious time trying to work out what Snapchat was thinking with the new sick and twisted emoji friend rating update.

I can’t take Snapchat right now. Maybe I’m just too old for this sh**.
