What is Snapchat?

Snapchat is a messaging application. You can take a photo or video. After that, you can add it to your story, or send it to a friend that could see it for 10 seconds, and it disappears. Due to the instant popularity of Snapchat, Facebook reportedly offered to acquire Snapchat for $3 billion. One of the app's cofounders declined the cash offer however.

What is bad about it?

People who "Jailbreak" could save these 10 second videos or photos. Which could lead them to blackmailing. The creators have taken drastic actions in banning those, but the pictures and photos that are saved cannot be removed.
