Snapchat is revolutionary because it is a fast way to communicate and have a conversation with people across the world. 

Snapchat is revolutionary because of the fast response you can have with pictures and text.  The app can tell everyone what you are doing and when and where you are and can be updated constantly depending on how much you post on your story or how many people you are texting.

Snapchat’s idea of being able to text or take a picture or both is a great idea and could be super effective and used in the right way. For example, if you bought something for somebody and needed to show them what it is because you can’t really describe it well, then just take a picture.

The best thing about Snapchat is that you can tell all of your friends what you are doing and where you are, which can also be done by other apps, but Snapchat is just all of those apps in one. Knowing where your friends and family are is a good thing, but if you are uncomfortable sharing your location with people that you are just friends with, you can shut it off completely or just for certain people. 

There are other apps that are like Snapchat and share similar properties. Take Instagram, for example, which you can use to text other people or share through pictures, but it has slight differences.  The difference between the two is that Snapchat is mainly for texting and taking pictures while Instagram is just made for taking pictures but has grown into something like Snapchat by the owners adding more features.

In the end, Snapchat is revolutionary, and I don’t think there will be another app made that would be more popular. Snapchat is very popular in this day and age because of how it is made, and I don’t see the popularity going away anytime soon.
