The app allows users to share photos, videos, and drawings. This app is primarily popular among the younger generation.

According to backlinko, Snapchat has over 293 million daily users worldwide. And you are one of them. 

A core concept of the mobile app is that any picture, video, or message you send by default is only accessible for a limited period of time before disappearing.

When you snap a photo of yourself with a rainbow-puking AR lens on, it will vanish forever after the friend opens it.

Initially, the app was intended to have a temporary or ephemeral nature to encourage more natural interaction flows.
