Snapchat's New Feature Lets You Look Back At 2017

Snapchat's New Feature Lets You Look Back At 2017

While Facebook may have its fair share of problems, it's still one of the most popular social media platforms around and for good reason. The head of this project is responsible for finding out how a user-generated content on Snapchat can be distributed across the web.

Sourcing a person familiar with the matter, livestreaming news network Cheddar reported that the Stories Everywhere feature would allow Snapchat Stories to be shared in other applications and on the web.

Snap, the parent company of Snapchat, has been fighting stalling growth as Facebook-backed competitors Instagram and Messenger steal its best features.

Snap hired Rahul Chopra, former NewsCorp executive and he is now the CEO of Storyful.

"Snap has also contemplated allowing other apps to access its feeds of user-generated videos, which are curated by algorithms and Snap employees, for everything from breaking news events to sports games", says Cheddar. It can also be customized to remove any snaps that you don't want in the roundup. This feature will allow the social media site to become an outlet for news and other video verticals.

What do you think of Snapchat's new Stories Everywhere feature?

While Stories Everywhere is still a feature under development, it would be Chopra's job to figure out how exactly to market the new feature effectively if they are to increase their user base. To get feedback on the app's performance and design, it has distributed a variety of Android devices to the engineering teams. Comparatively, Snapchat had 158 million users as of the fourth quarter of 2016. Unfortunately, its stagnant user growth is not desirable for investors. Instagram Stories which is just a year old has lapped up close to 300 million active users.
