Reality stars are closely followed by the tabloids and by fans. The Kardashian-Jenner family of Keeping Up With The Kardashians fame is on a whole other level compared to other reality stars. They have turned their family name into a brand and have managed to bridge the divide between television star and full-blown celebrity. They are in fashion, music, beauty, fitness and more. They have a loyal following of both fans and haters who love to follow their every move. Social media is a crucial part of their brand because it helps them become close with their fans while promoting themselves and their business endeavors.
The Kardashian-Jenner family uses Snapchat on a regular basis. Here, they can share intimate details of their lives with their fans through pictures and videos. Like regular people, sometimes their choices are a little questionable. They can create posts that expose other people that they love or put them in the spotlight for a negative reason. Even if they delete their post within a minute of posting, people have already seen it. The odds are, someone has taken the photo or video and saved it to upload somewhere else as well. These are some of the Kardashian-Jenner missteps on Snapchat. If only they deleted them sooner.
