Snap is losing, with their awful Snapchat app. It is awful on Android, plus, Instagram is more popular and more successful with Instagram Stories. People are migrating from Snapchat to Instagram Stories. Should've sold yourself to Facebook when Zuckerberg asked that from you, Snapchat. lol

You just played with the filters by yourself, but mainly people use Snapchat to send their stories, generally share their life and fool around with their friends using various filters.

Unlike Facebook or Instagram or Twitter, people don't think self-consciously before posting on Snapchat because they know that these stories only remain for 24 hours for your friends to see and if you're sending it as a message then that person only gets to see it once. Also, unlike in FB, twitter & instagram, you can see who has viewed your post.

Also since there are no likes & retweets, they don't have to worry about gathering appreciation either. And at the end of it all, you can also see all the snaps you have sent in your personal Memories feed, like a documentary of the fun you had in your life.

Basically Snapchat is for the well-connected, foolin' around, livin life-in-the-moment millennials, but it's definitely not everybody's cup of tea. Hope that explained it. Cheers! :D

Expecting a huge tanking after IPO like Facebook. A shameless cash grab.

If it's the filters and picture sharing, Instagram has more variations and has broader access. If it's about messaging, there are alternatives which actually used more than snapchat (i.e. Whatsapp and the like).

I don't understand what is so special about snapchat.. I had installed it about a month ago, I played a little bit with these filters, next day as well, and then after 1 week I forgot that I have this app, I entered again, played with filters and then I left it. Now it is uninstalled as I can't see any good point of having it... same filters every day... Now its deleted. Not sure why this one is so special... It just a messenger.
