Full-page banner ads suck . What do they do for me other than disrupt me from doing something I want to do? Full-page ads are like if I walked into a coffee shop and before I ordered, the barista made me hear about what tires are best for my car…

The Story Explorer update last week and yesterdays Deep Linking to ‘Discover’ Content are great updates for Snapchat. They are building such a great product. What a vision!

Understand the why people are there first before you begin to talk to them. Especially if all you want to do at the end is sell to them.
