Snapchat has taken the app world by storm and I am so much guilty about it. I can share anything on it and it vanishes after 24 hours I uploaded it. I can let my readers see what my family so at home or on our pastime.

According to Snapchat CEO Evan Speigel on a recent Bloomberg report, Snapchat users have recorded over 8 billion video views per day, with each user spending about 30 minutes on the app.

In the Philippines, Snapchat has already gained a solid following among the country’s youth with its unconventional approach to sharing on social – from quick videos, to cool filters.  Snapchat usage is expected to increase further, similar to how Filipinos have quickly adopted to other popular social media apps. After all, with a smartphone penetration at 55% and a record of holding the highest number of time spent on social media at 3.7 hours according to the latest WeAreSocial January 2016 report, more customers will more likely follow suit.
