Glorious Past:

Today’s world famous photo messaging software SNAPCHAT was launched by Reggie Brown, Evan

Spiegel and Bobby Murphy the three students of the Stanford University in July 2011 for the iOS

platform. This application was developed to take photos, record videos, draw and write text on them

and to send them to the limited and selected contacts decided by the users. The files of photos, videos

etc which are sent by the users to the controlled and restricted number of contacts are known as Snaps.

The user can put a time limit on these Snaps so that after that specified period of time the Snaps can

disappear from the device of the recipients and from the SNAPCHAT server also. At this early age it

was known as Picaboo and the mascot was known as Ghost face Chillah. Later it was re launched under

the name SNAPCHAT in November 2012. After getting the popularity it was also released for

windows users.
