Anti-semitic vandalism has turned New York City into “Jewtropolis” on a number of online platforms, including Snapchat, CitiBike, and StreetEasy. The problem appears to stem from the mapping software that the platforms are using, called Mapbox, which pulls data from OpenStreetMap.
Stalling growth is technically no longer Snapchat’s biggest problem. Instead, Snap shared worse news with the world today in its latest earnings report: For the first time, it’s shrinking.
A portion of Snapchat’s source code was leaked and hosted on the code repository platform GitHub (recently acquired by Microsoft) before a copyright takedown request from Snap led the company to remove the offending leak.
Today Snapchat announced its newest feature, Lens Explorer, which makes the social network a little more communal by letting users easily access Snap’s repository of user-created Lenses. While the variety is nice, incorporating user-generated content has its downsides: More often than not, it sucks.
Snapchat’s owner Snap appears to be working on a new search tool that would give you yet another avenue to absentmindedly buy shit from Amazon.
Last month, three women at a senior living facility in Georgia made a Snapchat video in the room of a 76-year-old woman who had a stroke, according to police. The women, who were all at the time working at the facility, reportedly titled the story “The End.”
Creepers, rejoice: after several months of testing, Instagram has killed a feature that alerted users when someone took a screenshot of their Stories. Long live the ability to discretely throw shade at all of your online frenemies!
Every 45-year-old’s favorite social network app, Snapchat, is adding a feature that will no doubt appeal to anyone sending ill-conceived jokes, bad pickup lines, or messages one may want to think twice about disseminating. According to 9to5Mac, Snap’s new unsend feature will let you revoke any unseen message, video,…
I’m sorry, but Instagram may start looking a lot more like YouTube in the future.
It’s official. Facebook is no longer number one with teens. A new study from the Pew Research Center found that just 51 percent of Americans from 13 to 17-years-old say they use Facebook. That’s down from 71 percent in 2015. Those same teens now use Instagram (72 percent) and Snapchat (69 percent) to connect online.…
It sounds like Snap’s Los Angeles office has plenty of insufferable assholes.
Snap’s stock price is now hovering around its lowest point ever since the company went public last year. Yet, its whiz-kid founder, Evan Spiegel, was 2017's highest-paid CEO, taking home $504 million. And according to a new report, Spiegel is almost single-handedly responsible for Snapchat’s biggest mistake.
Things have been rocky for Snapchat. After going public in March 2017, Snap Inc. has seen its stock price drop by more than 50 percent in a little more than a year, while taking a $40 million loss on unsold Spectacles and more or less canceling a redesign that had users complaining in protest. So in an attempt to…
Remember that massive Snapchat update that pissed off basically everyone? Well, Snap is pulling a bit of an about-face and issuing a redesign of the redesign after receiving nothing but a barrage of boos from its once loyal userbase.
Just like it did with Filters, Snaps, and Stories, Facebook is duplicating another feature that previously existed on its competitor Snapchat.
Snapchat’s big, controversial redesign—the one that really put us in our place by separating our social from our media—doesn’t appear to have done the app much good. Snapchat still has 191 million daily users, but things aren’t looking up for the company that Facebook has done everything in its power to destroy.
Just in time for spring, Snap has released a new version of its original Spectacles, after FCC filings unveiled a bit more about the upcoming pair of camera sunglasses. You’ll also be happy to know, if you wrote them off entirely due to their garish appearance, that you made the right choice. These Spectacles look…
Snapchat, fresh off a redesign that managed to piss off just about the entirety of its user base, is reportedly getting ready to introduce a new feature that no one (except its stockholders) has been asking for: unskippable advertisements.
Two students at an elementary school in Louisiana were arrested on Wednesday for distributing child pornography. According to the Slidell Police Department, the female student sent nude photos of herself to the male student, who then sent the photos of her to “numerous other students at the school” through Snapchat.
