Snapchat uses different types of disappearing media
Snapchat started as an app that sent pictures that disappeared to cyberspace after 10 seconds. Since it’s inception, the app has evolved to add video and messaging. They also implemented Snapchat Stories, where users can post pictures and videos that expire after 24 hours.
There is also a large creative aspect of Snapchat, where users can edit pictures and videos. The app is constantly expanding what users can do to manipulate pictures so every post can be personalized. You can chose from different filters, geo-filters, lenses that change your face, stickers, text and a drawing function. The possibilities are endless.
