Sliding away from the social stigma of being a sexting app, Snapchat has taken a long leap since its launch in 2011. A transitory photo, video sharing application which has found a firm spot on the smart phone of a 20something, is still alien to matured brands.
Working on absolute real-time, Snapchat has transformed to become a creative content creation hub as brands are actively attempting to absorb its rapid features and wild fame to grip on to the budding user base. It’s not anymore an ignored third wheel in the strong digital world where big names like Facebook, Twitter or Instagram over-shadowed the casual, personal natured app.
‘Creativity is the ultimate key to success’ as we all nod in agreement to this statement, brands aim to induce a rather intimate relationship with their audience leveraging the perks of this platform.
