Since its origin Snapchat has defeated many social networking sites and apps. Millions of users
are brooding over this app only for its unique features and services. It has got a huge popularity
by the users within a very short period. The total number present Snapchat users is 27 million, it
is turned from 14 million of the previous year. Mainly the teenagers are more interested in this
app. A report shows that the half of the total Snapchat users is the teens of United States of 13 to
17 years. The users share more than 500 million snaps every day. This number is quite
astonishing for a new social networking site like Snapchat.
Facebook’s new policy to defeat Snapchat
Sources disclose that the Facebook users have been getting decreased after the origin of Snapchat
and this is the reason of increasing popularity of Snapchat. Not only Facebook, Snapchat is
gaining the users of various social networking sites and apps. Facebook has made a clone app of
Snapchat; it is like Snapchat for its features and services. The name of this clone app is
Slingshot, but this has not got a huge market like Snapchat. But Facebook has not lost hope for
competing with the Snapchat social networking app. They are taking more ways to defeat the
popularity of Snapchat.
Snapchat refuses $3 billion offer of Facebook
Facebook wanted to buy Snapchat and for that they gave a proposal of $3 billion to the Snapchat
authority. But the Snapchat authority did not pay any heed to this proposal from Facebook.
Snapchat is not interested in selling. They are more interested in updating their app by improving
the features and services. After that Facebook has decided to make a clone app of Snapchat.
Those attempts from Facebook are showing that Snapchat has become a very strong rival and it
is gaining their popularity.
Use of Snapchat
Millions of people are busy in using this app… Mainly the teenagers are busy in this app the
most. They are busy in sharing their intimate photos, nude Snapchat videos etc… those new
generation teens are more willing to communicate with their sexy friends through this app. But
those explicit objects are often get leaked by the Snapchat hackers, and thus the privacy of the
millions of users gets disclosed. There is no age restriction for using this social networking app,
everybody can use this app for communicating and sharing snaps. No restriction is also there for
sharing snaps, any object can be shared in this app with the friends.
Snapchat is getting updated with lots of new services and features. Snapchat Discovery is one of
them. In fact this service from the app has got a huge response from the users after its launching.
And this is a positive sign for the service and also for the app. Text chat and voice call facilities
also are included, and all those have made the app more popular. But Facebook is busy in
competing with Snapchat and for that they are experimenting new services.
