Snapchat (Snap)

Snap provides technology and social media services. The Company's flagship product, Snapchat, is a camera application that was created to help people communicate through short videos and images. One of the principal concepts of Snapchat is that pictures and messages are only available for a short time before they become inaccessible. Originally, Snapchat was centered on private, person-to-person photo sharing; new features, including the ability to send short videos, communicate via video chat and saving necessary chat information through a press on a message, were added through later updates.
