Brief

Snapchat is an application that allows its' users to send videos and pictures with some little editing options. The main feature which differentiates the app from others is that the data you send to anyone is automatically deleted within 10 seconds. This defends the privacy of adults, as most of the users of Snapchat are between 12-25.

Snapchat was created in 2011 at Stanford University by two students. It was first shown on the design course at the end of the studying year in 2011. The students got the first investment of 500K, approximately.

Later in 2012, the study confirmed there were approximately 20 pictures sent through Snapchat every second. At the end of the year, it was known that 20 pictures turned in 20 million data types in a single second.

After that 2012 year, every year investments on Snapchat became bigger and bigger, which eventually willed the application to the 10 most used apps in the world.

Features

•Sharing videos and photos comfortably

•It's completely free

•Like we said above, Snapchat has its' unique feature, which can delete all the photos after being sent for 10 seconds. This helps adults' privacy.

•Snapchat by its' design helps people connect with strangers easily

Pros

The app obviously has its' unique feature as we mentioned already, which is the ability to erase photo data within 10 seconds. It is free, easy, and really comfortable to use and connect with friends or even with strangers.

Cons

The Snapchat app's best feature known all around the world erasing the photo data in 10 seconds is really nice, but it still doesn't defend you from this one. The user you are sending the data to can still screenshot the photo and save it themselves. So children should be really careful and not risk sending any types of controversial photos, because in the end they can still be leaked.

Reminder: To the person reading this, just because you can screenshot the Snapchat picture, it doesn't mean you should. Be gentle.

Conclusion

With the app consistently being in the top 10 of the most used apps in the world, it is certainly a fun experience in its' unique way. The app sometimes has even reached the top 3 of the most popular apps and that should tell you what you need to know. Snapchat continues to become even bigger day by day, approximately adding 10 million users every 6 months. You can download Snapchat on your Android and on your IOS.
