Nikon - ever heard about Social Media???

Recently bought an 850 to replace my 610 and -

Had hoped to use SnapBridge on my in progress trip to Europe (today in Prague) so that we could easily post my - yes- beautiful nikon photos (which my wife no longer even bothers to ask about doing) using this new - expensive piece of gear.

Without supercharging photo based social media options - nikon will wither away as older geeks/nerds (myself included) are not an increasing market.

what doesnt work - or is not documented/intuitive?

- as far as i can tell must have raw/jpg optioned as raw wont transfer. Had to figure this out trial/error. Certainly didnt find this in any documentation - unless i am wrong. Nikon support didnt have a clue on this question.

- kills battery life

- rube goldberg process of turning on multiple menu options (like many things in nikon world) to get it started.

- cant easily turn this power sapping option off.

- oh, and getting it to sync without installing/deleting/reinstalling every time is ludicrous.

As a software guy - amazing to see this superior optics company have its head in the sand...
