    In the next 24 months I see an errant new member of Windows Central posting a new thread asking the question:
    Whatever happened to Snapchat?


    Not just windows phone I can see snapchat getting overtaken by the next new generation of app. We saw it with Bebo years ago then Mr Zukerberg came along with facebook and Bebo became obsolete. Even though Bebo is coming back its not gonna be the same. It happened with Napster getting over taken by iTunes and or Limewire. Ha ha even Limewire got over taken by uTorrent. Snapchat better beware because some truly ticked off windows phone user/developer will overtake them.

    Rudy Huyn should develop his own snapchat rival. He has proven that he can do incredible work I have no doubt that he could make its competitor.

    The tech landscape is littered with the corpses of "must have" devices and services that failed to keep up the spirit of innovation that made them what they are. It didn't help that a lot of them urinated money up the wall all day, every day.
    You're exactly right - today's Snapchat is tomorrow's MySpace.

    That's deep! Very poetic.

    To be truthful, in a matter of days Whatsapp could wipe Snapchat off the face of the earth if they added a feature that is basically Snapchat.

    Whatsapp is already on all major and some minor OS phones. Self deleting pictures that you can doodle on would be an easy add.

    If I were you people who want Snapchat, I would direct your energy to getting Whatsapp to add Snap like features.

    If the flock moves away from Snachat, they will crumble and fall into the waste bin.

    I'm surprised one of the already well rooted chat apps haven't set a target on Snap yet.

    Never even thought of it that way, and yet it makes so much sense. Correct me if I am wrong, isn't WhatsApp older on the market than snap hat? We all know I has more users, so they could realistically incorporate a similar or at least competing feature.

    Not really since Snapchat is still the incumbent and merely mimicking it's functionality won't do too much to compel users to switch.

    There's VC's pouring billions into a company with no monetisation, nor public plan to start generating revenue. That Itchy Spangle dude is writing his own large pay cheque each month with other people's money.
    Those investors are the ones to contact and make a case to. And it needs to be a better case than whatever tat Ivory Sphincter has sold them on.
    The monetization is of course information like most social media/interactive apps. They may not keep the content of your 'chats' but I'm pretty sure they know how many you sent, to who, how often, general content etc...

    Just a question mods, why do we continue to have this nonsense posted? I mean how many threads do we have to see on Snapchat?
