Snapchat was created in the fall of 2011, and a few tense, laborious months later in the spring of 2012, Snapchat had amassed over 100,00 downloads. The app struggled to get off the ground, but when it did, it soared, and now it’s an app that over 100 million people use daily.
Snapchat has had a tough history, between it’s CEO Evan Spiegel having a poor relationship with his buddy Reggie White, the guy who actually came up with the idea that spawned Snapchat, and the email leak that he was a victim of, and that sure didn’t help his reputation. That being said, the app itself is awesome and has had a very successful life, and hundreds of millions of selfies and videos are taken on the app every day.
With that many selfies being posted, you’re bound to see some really good ones that stand out from the pack, and there are plenty of lists around the internet going over funny or crazy snapchats, but this one is different; here, you’re viewing 7 unforgettable moments in Snapchat selfies history. If you want to take a viral selfie or one that all of your friends will enjoy, look to these selfies for inspiration, as they are very memorable.
/1/ Rihanna Showing Off Her Movements
Whenever Rihanna does something, everyone watches closely, as RiRi has proven to be more than worth our attention, for a variety of reasons. Things are no different when she’s on Snapchat, and this selfie was immensely popular when she first posted it back when Snapchat was still on the cusp of being huge, and it no doubt brought some new people to the new social network.
Taking inspiration from the “Sitting on the toilet” lady, Rihanna felt like sharing her private moment with us all, captioning her snap “sittin on tha toilet”. It was one of her first forays into Snapchat, and it might have had an impact on Snapchat’s overall success.
/2/ Oh, Deer
Around 1 million deer per year wander in front of swiftly moving vehicles, and just about all of them fail to survive the impact. This poor fellow met a fate similar to many of its brethren, only it’s funeral was rather respectful, as it was given a balloon that read “Get Well”.
A little late, but it’s the thought that counts.
/3/ The Guy Who Was Painfully Aware Of How He Looks
One of the most unforgettable Snapchat selfies ever, this guy was aware that from his appearance alone, the TSA guy behind him would probably give him a second look, yet he still took it in stride and was able to make light of himself and stereotypes people may apply to him. He could have gotten mad at the guy, but nope, instead he felt like making a silly joke, one that surely brought a smile to anyone who’s seen this selfie.
With a smile and a funny caption, this traveler’s selfie created an unforgettable moment, something that is easier said than done.

This crab is major key, an animal that seems like it can kill off the entire human race with a snap of it’s freakish claws.

/5/ Keeping It 100
DJ Khaled reminds us frequently not to play ourselves, but this Snapchatter played us all.
