[Please don't think of it as making fun of the company. I respect the kind of work being done there.]
I'm seeing lots of media articles on how SnapChat is doomed. If I think about the work and innovation being done, it is equivalent or better than FB (since they rampantly copied many features and offered to buy the company as well).
I'm just curious on what employees of SnapChat think about the overall future, company leadership, and product decisions currently.
I think SnapChat has a good potential for growth.
The features that Facebook has copied are the core features for Snapchat.
Snapchat still hasn't delivered on it's supposed Android rework, where it's still a hot piece of garbage. All of the new features Snapchat has released have not been well-received, such as the older addition of the Discover pane as well as the more recent SnapMaps and the *amazing* UX rework. Spectacles were a disaster as well.
They may have iterated on what they currently have to make them slightly better but I don't see the long-term value of Snapchat, especially when viable alternatives such as Facebook's implementation have popped up.
