Happy 3rd Birthday Snapchat

SNAPCHAT was founded on • th SEPTEMBER 26" 2011 НАРPY 3rd BİRTHDAY SNAPCHAT Snapchat is a photo messaging application. Using the application, users can take photos, record videos, add text and drawings, and send them to a controlled list of recipients. These sent photographs and videos are known as "Snaps" and 'disappear' after a prescribed time. THE SNAPCHAT STORY ROBERT (BOBBY) MURPHY Co-founder & CTO EVAN SPIEGEL Co-founder & CEO Spiegel studied Product Design Met while undergraduates at Stanford University. Murphy studied Mathematical and Computer Science HQ is located at a 6,000 square ft office at 63 Market St. in Venice, California, USA 57 SNAPCHAT CONTROVERSIES In November 2013, Facebook (Mark Zuckerberg) offered $3 BILLION in cash for the $3 BILLION then two-year-old app with no revenue. Spiegel and Murphy each still owned about 25% of Snapchat at the time, which means they were both forgoing a $750 million windfall. $750 MILLION SUN TZU After meeting with Mark Zuckerberg, Spiegel and Murphy ordered Sun Tzu's The Art of War for each of their six employees. THE ART OF WAR Spiegel and Murphy were targets of a lawsuit from a former college friend, 2) Frank Brown, who claims to have come up with the disappearing image idea for Snapchat, designed its logo and christened the concept "Picaboo". Case settled in September 2014 for an undisclosed sum. Snapchat began 2014 with 4.6 MILLION of its users having their 4.6 MILLION usernames and HACKED partial phone numbers hacked. 3 SNAPCHAT CHATTER SPIEGEL ON WHY SNAPCHAT WORKS: I think our application makes communication a lot more human and natural. SPIEGEL ON DISAPPEARING IMAGES: 14 We've never been anti-permanence...We just believe deletion should be the default. SPIEGEL ON SNAPCHAT AS A 'SEXTING' TOOL: I'm not convinced that the whole sexting thing is as big as the media makes it out to be. SPIEGEL ON THE REJECTED SALE TO FACEBOOK: There are very few people in the world who get to build a business like this, I think trading that for some short-term gain isn't very interesting.
