For a while, Snapchat has become the go-to social media platform for people to share the story of their daily lives in real time. From walking down the street to grabbing a cup of coffee, to partying with friends or even meeting the President of the United States, the Snapchat user base has evolved from teenagers just sharing duck-face selfies.
But what if Snapchat were used to show your work? Brands like Cosmopolitan Magazine, Food Network, Buzzfeed and many others use the “Discover” channel to share their content on a daily basis with their audiences. But what if celebrities, CEOs and other thought leaders used Snapchat as a means to further connect with their fan base, sharing gems about their journey to success?
