If you are known to the photo sharing applications of the world, you must have heard of the
SnapChat. It is one of the prime photo sending apps used in the world and with 700million
photos and videos sent per day, it is really a very famous app. The app was not made with
the intention for making it widespread. It was developed as a normal class project in Stanford
University. The app can be mainly used for sharing photos, videos, drawings or editing. The
photos and videos which are sent are known as snaps and they can be visible for a specific time
after which they are hidden. The company says that the photos and videos are deleted but in
reality they can be retrieved with technical knowledge. The developers were Evan Spiegel and
Reggie Brown but a new guy named Bobby Murphy was added to the group.

The working and relevant features
You must be using the online social network Facebook; well in this app also you have friends
like the facebook friends, whom you can send the pictures to. Like the facebook friends, you
can also chat with them and also do video chat. The notifications are known as stories and they
can be viewed for the next 24hours after being uploaded. The company also claimed back in
June, 2013 that the stories feature of the app has also surpassed the snaps with more than a
billion viewed per day.
The new feature is available which is also known as the ‘here’ feature. It includes the appearing
of a here sign in the form of a blue bubble in the window. You may encounter the sign while
using the app. It means a friend of you is available for video chatting on the app. This bubble
is only available while you are active on the app. It is mainly a sign to notify the live or online
friends on the app.
This app also has a bad reputation for being used for indecent reasons. Most of the people report
having received explicit content.
