The design of Snapchat can be is quite funny, having a logo called Ghostface Chillah on yellow
background. After logging in you will be taken to a screen from where photos and videos can be
taken. Photos can be taken by pushing the circular button on the bottom of the screen. Videos
can be taken in the same way. The stories which can be created by stitching your photos and
videos together can be viewed for 24 hours straight, after that they automatically disappear.
There are additional settings to customize who can view your stories.
