What Does ‘13’ Mean on Snapchat?

Have you noticed people posting the number 13 on Snapchat? Did you notice it is mostly boys doing it? Is there a reason? Yes, and the reason is because of the 10-hour TV season of “13 Reasons Why” on Netflix. The show was a book before it was made into a show. 


What is “13 Reasons Why?” It is a powerful mini-series on Netflix  about a young girl who takes her own life. Before she does though, she records the 13 reasons why. After she does, a box gets dropped off on a boy named Clay’s porch. The girl who took her own life was named Hannah and Clay had a crush on her.

Inside the box is a tape with a recording on it of Hannah explaining the 13 reasons why she decided to commit suicide. Clay decides to listen to it. Now the one major difference between the book and the TV show is that in the book, Clay listens to the recordings all in one sitting. He sits down with some coffee and just listens to them all at once. However, on the show, he takes a lot longer to listen to the 13 reasons why she took her own life. 

How sad is it for a young girl to commit suicide? Watch the TV show, “13 Reasons Why” and find out why she decided to do this.
