Snapchat’s uncertain future

It all started in a classroom. Somewhere a teenager thought that exchanging info during a class using Snapchat would be foolproof because if caught, the item had already been deleted automatically. From there, Snapchat took off. Feeding on tweens insatiable appetite to communicate secretly between each other a million times a day without being caught, either by peers or authority, the ephemeral photo app became a sensation. So much so that today, it is poised to take rank in the otherwise very closed club of…

With 400 million active users today, it is the only platform where people  exclusively take and share visual content and nothing else.
