Snapchat is a mobile image messaging application, which is developed by Snap Inc. and was first released in 2011. Originally centred around private, person-to-person image sharing, the service expanded to include new features, such as the sending of video messages, real-time video chat and a Live Stories function.
The key concept of the service is that multimedia messages, or ‘Snaps’, are temporary and can only be accessed for a certain amount of time, before self-deleting. Images and videos can be edited with the use of filters, special effects and text captions and Snaps can be sent directly to individuals, or made semi-public through the ‘Stories’ feature.
In this article, we will look at how to create a Snapchat account, how to login to the service, how to solve some of the most common problems, and how to delete Snapchat.
