Snapchat is amazing photo- and video-messaging app that allows you to share photos and videos with your friends easily. So this time communication changes, meaning no more chatting, you now use pics and videos to express your feeling with friends and family. When ever you take a snap(s) your friends can view snaps for up to 10 seconds, and then they disappear. While that’s all fine and dandy, many people are still left stumped by Snapchat.
Do you know that due to the instant popularity of Snapchat, Facebook reportedly offered to acquire Snapchat for $3 billion. One of the app’s cofounders declined the cash offer however. Facebook later launched a similar app (Slingshot), which failed.
