Social media became popular when Facebook came into picture back in 2004. It was the beginning of an era. Facebook marked the beginning of a culture and since then it has become a phenomenon. It has changed the way of communication. Teenagers, even adults are affected by this unprecedented change in social culture. Then came dedicated messaging apps – dedicated for chatting. And, there were a whole lot of other features like sharing pictures, videos and documents. Now, the market for these apps has become saturated. Many of these apps have become unpopular (even obsolete) and the new ones are not used frequently. In other words, people are bored. They need something quirky and exciting. And very apps like Snapchat have been able to do that. The best part is that you can also download Snapchat for PC.
