Scary! Your Snapchats Now OFFICIALLY Last Forever!
Snapchat has announced a new feature that signals a massive change for the social media app.
Until now, it’s all been about how immediate the app is. Take a photo, ten seconds later IT’S GONE FOREVER!
Well not any more.
A new feature called ‘’Memories’’ has been announced that will act like a bit of a holding bin for your photos and videos you have taken, so they can be downloaded or added to your story later on.
While we have all been adding to our stories and it lives for 24 hours, that’s no longer the case as you could choose to save your photo or video for 23 hours before posting.
All the snaps, however, will come with a border around them, that Snapchat will control, so there could be advertising all around you.
It is believed that Snapchat is making the change comes as they try to compete with Instagram and gain more advertising. With the app recently taking over Twitter in terms of daily users, it is clearly seen it now needs to make more money.
On the announcement of the news of ‘’memories’’, Snapchat said ‘’It’s fun to celebrate an anniversary or birthday by finding a few old snaps and stringing them together into a new story’’.
Goodbye, old snapchat.
