Join Anson Alexander for an in-depth discussion in this video Understanding Snapchat, part of Up and Running with Snapchat.
- Before we dive right in and start using Snapchat, let's take a look at some of its primary features. Snapchat is a photo and video sharing service that allows you to send and receive messages, also known as Snaps, to and from your friends and family. Snaps can only be viewed once, with a few exceptions which we'll talk about later on in the course. The maximum length of a video on Snapchat is only 10 seconds, so if you're sending videos, they need to be short and sweet. Snapchat is great for photos and videos that leave the user saying, "Wait a minute, what did I just see?" And it's this unique novel experience of only being able to view a photo or video one time that has made Snapchat so popular.
