Why I’m leaving Snapchat and so are all your friends
Owen Williams

Your article is yet another vote towards Instagram over Snapchat, and at the same time, Facebook now owns 3 products that seem to clone Snapchat — Messenger, Whatsapp, and Instagram. I found it very insightful to read your breakdown.

There is one thing I’ve noted however: in my experience looking at “normals” around me, I’ve started noticing more young adults (early college kids), as well as teenagers and pre-teens who no longer ask each other for a phone number at a party: they share their snapcodes instead.

I’m guessing this behaviour could be replicated using Whatsapp’s or Messenger’s QR Code, but I thought this was worth noting.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
