I have never used SnapChat for either personal or business use and I have no plans to.  I'm with Nina, there is only so much social media I can keep up with and I don't see any added value for it with my business at this point.  I guess things can change with the times and technology, but no and no for now. -Kasey

My company does a lot on snapchat, personally I don't like it.  I find it unprofessional, the and the 10 second video window too narrow---why do 15 snaps instead of one quick youtube or facebook live video?

 

I'm with the field of people that believe the Snapchat IPO was ridiculously off in its valuation.  Too much competition, and like every social media site, as soon as the ads (revenue for the owners) start taking up more time & space, the users will leave.

I don't - I can barely survive 140 characters on Twitter!  10 seconds is not even long enough for me to get in my 30-second elevator speech!

Seriously, if I want to chat with my clients, we FaceTime.  Easy-peasy and doesn't require yet, another app on my phone!

I think it may be a fad that goes the way of Pets.com and Webvan.  May be the signal that we've reached the peak of the social media stock market bubble.  Same thing started to occur in 1999 just before the .dot com bubble burst.
