ICYDK (and we hope that's not the case because if it is, huhuhu), we're on Snapchat! We're actually still learning new things every day about this social media app, but we're really having a lot of fun using it. In case you're still thinking twice if you and your friends should use it, too, we've rounded up a few reasons to convince you. Trust us, it's really, really, really fun to be on Snapchat.

 1  Stalking is easier.

Your favorite celebrities who use Snapchat upload random videos and photos from their day—whether while working or just chillin' in their house or bedroom. Sometimes they also announce certain things like a perfume they're releasing soon or a snippet of their upcoming song—even before the official press release comes out.

 2  You don't have to filter every single story.

The more random it is, the better! That's actually the beauty of Snapchat. It shows how things really look without the lighting, the styling (well, unless it's a BTS of one of our shoots, hehe), and the VSCO filters.

 3  It doesn't take up space in your phones.

Because the stories disappear after 24 hours unless you choose to save them.

 4  You get a sneak peek of movies before they go on the big screen.

 6  You can join fun games, too.

 7  You can show off your creativity.

Because doodles and captions and emojis on photos and videos!

 8  You can tell a story.

And choose your audience, like Calvin Harris who showed the world what a great bae he is by cat-sitting Olivia Benson and Meredith Grey for Taylor Swift.

 9  It gives your friends and followers the feeling that they're actually there beside you.
