Teens are known to be the people who primarily use social media; there are various social media platforms that teens use for fun and even catching up with friends and family by creating memories. If you are updated, you must know the relationship between Snapchat and teens; lately, Snapchat is becoming more popular than TikTok and Instagram. Everyone is asking themselves, why is this happening? This app is changing the way people use social media in many different ways, and that is why you find that even marketers are currently marketing their products using Snapchat. Here are the reasons why Snapchat is becoming the talk of town more than the others:
Snapchat Creates The Urgency Sense
The main difference between Snapchat and other social media platforms is the fleeting nature of the content. Unlike Tiktok and Instagram, where you have to constantly check on the app daily to stay updated with your friends' content, Snapchat allows teens to view their close friends' snaps and chats within ten seconds and stay up to date. Moreover, the content friends share in their stories can disappear after 24 hours of posting.
This nature of the app allows people to share stories of their current situations that they would not want to stay in their lives forever. Simple things like the people you hang out with while having dinner, what you ate, and whatever happened over the day. For this reason, you will find Snapchat and teens being one.
Encourages sharing of full stories rather than highlights
Daily users are likely to spend about 25 to 30 minutes on Snapchat daily; you should not be surprised to know that they get a lot of content from that. It is common for peers to share at least ten moments a day from when they woke up until they slept. For instance, if you take a trip, you might want to take your friends along virtually, and every moment you share, they find it in full rather than just a highlight of their trip.
Live without ads
Snapchat is among the few platforms where you can share live news without ads appearing or popping up every moment. It gives users choices when to view brands' content, thus enabling the selected brands to promote their products and content through Snapchat's Discover. This tab can quickly draw an audience of about 40 million people within 24 hours, and here you will promote whatever you want without disruption.

Snapchat Refuses Multi-billion Offers
Facebook has tried and failed to claim the popular messaging app Snapchat. Last year, Facebook offered the company $1 billion dollars, but the company refused their offer. Recently, Mark Zuckerberg offered Snapchat $3 billion dollars cash. The CEO of Snapchat, Evan Spiegel, has released a statement saying they are not considering selling the company at this time. He also said he would be willing to talk about a sale in 2014.
