For those who are unfamiliar, Snapchat is a photo sharing application for mobile smart phones that allow users to limit the viewing time of a photo sent from anywhere from 1 to 10 seconds.  After the assigned time period is up the picture is deleted forever both from the users phone and Snapchat servers.  Be warned, users are allowed to take screenshots of the photos, and the sender will be notified that a screenshot of the snap was taken.  According to Evan Spiegel, Snapchat CEO,  the Snapchat app is currently installed on approximately 25% of all smart phone users’ phones.  The app’s core audience also includes 13 to 25 year olds skewing 70% towards females.  Currently, few companies are taking the time to utilize Snapchat as a social marketing tool.
