Lunch has arrived at a West Village restaurant, but before Cory Haik digs in, she does something a 20-year-old might do: She sends photos of her meal to Snapchat. Many adults her age may find Snapchat baffling, but Haik, 38, whose black hair is often cropped at different lengths and may be one of the best dressed people you’ll find in a newsroom, is not intimidated.
“I’m fascinated by it,” said Haik. “The organic pieces, the storytelling potential — it’s unmatched. The weird UX and its closed nature and how you can’t find people; I don’t care. It makes it more appealing. My Snap story is the most important connection I have all day long.”
