assSNAPCHAT in the news today!


SNAPCHAT, what is it? 

                                  SNAPCHAT is a messaging APPlication.

                                  Do you use it? 

SNAPCHAT is being used because the marketing message is it sends

                                                                          SELF DESTRUCTING MESSAGES.

Or is it only illusion of being self destructing?

There are 4.6 million users today of SNAPCHAT.

SNAPCHAT was so hot an APP this fall that we hear Evan Spiegel was offered:

                            3 Billion from Facebook

                           or a cool

                            4 Billion from Google

What is it worth today after being hacked by an entity calling itself

The Syrian Electronic Army which is know to spread doubts and uncertainty is said to have hacked the SNAPCHAT SITE.

Unlike Target, account numbers were not displayed  but it is said that 4.6 Million Users had their phone numbers and user ID's exposed.   Were you one of them?  do you have an account with SNAPCHAT?

What is the fate of SNAPCHAT?  Known to some as the "sexting app"? and appealing to many teenagers who may be looking to send messages they believe will automatically delete.

Does anything ever delete entirely from the internet?  Hmmm....Let's see what tomorrow brings, will INSTAGRAM DIRECT MESSAGING SERVICE see an increase in participation?

The message that never goes away is that whatever you send or post or take a picture of may end up on the five o'clock news, no matter what the AP developer says.  Please exercise caution on your postings.

MaryBeth - this was such an interesting headline. To be frank, I guess I'm showing my age, but I had never even heard about SNAPCHAT. I also think it's hilarious that we old people have invaded facebook to such an extent that the young people/teens/etc. think facebook is passe and they don't want to use it. Perhaps this same techique could be used with other things that they do that we don't like?
