What is Snapchat?

Snapchat is a popular messaging service focused on the smartphone platforms. It lets users exchanges pictures and videos that are meant to disappears once they are viewed by the receiver. The app came up with a lot of features that lets users add filters, lens and other effects to the pictures or video that they shoot.

The App was initially released in 2011 and is available for both Android and iOS platforms.

All of the snapchat users will know that through the platform, you can share stories that are also called ‘Snaps’, with a certain amount or all of the people you are ‘friends’ with. There is this popular streak which runs these days where you have to send one pic each day to maintain that streak. All these are fine, but it might not be a happy time always.

Snapchat is indeed the craze these days. Doesn’t the way the platform has been designed, echo with the popular teen belief of ‘living in the moment’?
