Snapchat

    Snapchat was founded in September 2011 and has quickly become popular among young people with its core feature of "making pictures and videos you send disappear in less than 10 seconds on the other person's phone": "Story" - the sharing of stories. For the first time, the original rules were beaten so that content in the Story feature could be replayed within 24 hours. "Story" has three modules to provide users with photo and video-based information and to meet their social needs.

    Snapchat Story, where you can take a photo or video and share it with all your friends, with the content arranged by upload time and played continuously without interruption. It's a cross between a short video and a direct one, with multiple short live videos linked together to provide a live streaming experience.

Instagram
