Snapchat, commonly known as “Snap”, is arguably one of the most popular applications used by young people in today's digital world. Over 75% of Snapchat's user base is under the age of 25, and it is the de facto medium of communication for students in grades 7-12. Since Snapchat launched in 2011, the app has become increasingly popular, currently having over 200 million daily users.
One reason for its popularity is that it turned text communication into a visual experience that allows users to send photos that disappear within a designated period of time and (for the most part) leave behind no evidence.
