Exclusive: Snapchat weighs what was once unthinkable - permanent snaps
Users need to be reminded that these companies have a business model. They need to make money in order to continue to allow users to use the platform for "free". Either that our you pay for exclusivity/no ads. Anyway, nothing on the Internet is truly anonymous.
Without evolving, snaps arent very useful to publishers. So this makes sense for a variety of reasons. Its users should be sophisticated enough to know that sharing on Our Stories is a public endeavor.
It seems obvious to enable this option for users and doesn’t seem like the core work flow needs to change
Snapchat was useful for me when I was doing digital newsgathering at Reuters. Using public posts let me see what was going on on the ground during active shooter and natural disaster situations.
This is funny. Polar opposite feature to why we all loved this in the first place. Bye Felicia.
Updated comment... wait... so it’s Instagram?
As if those pictures ever truly ever went away....
Disappearing messages are core to Snapchat and any move away from them stands to make the app worse. Snapchat was the unique place where one could be sure their photos would not be on the internet forever.
Never used it
