Snapchat Turns 1 Today
As you know, it takes a village to raise a child (or one really good nanny). In our case, it took a village. We’re humbled and flattered by all the love and support we’ve received from the Snapchat community.
We’re Sorry
We’ve been working day and night to accommodate the massive increases in traffic on the Snapchat service and prepare for a major product update. With millions of snaps sent every day, sometimes our servers are slower than we’d like. To address that problem we developed a faster way to write data to our servers. Unfortunately, this morning, when we pushed that change, some account data was corrupted. This affected 0.3% of our users.
Drawing Contest
We’re excited to announce our first contest, which challenges YOU to send us your most creative and fun snap using the new drawing feature! Feel free to use a caption too.
100 Million Images
We want to thank all of you for your continued support of Snapchat. Over 110 million images have been sent through our service! Woohoo! We couldn’t have done it without you.
Let's chat.
My co-founder Bobby and I met at Stanford in 2009. I was a freshman studying Product Design and Bobby was a junior working on his B.S. in Mathematical and Computational Science. Our first project was Future Freshman – a site that would forever improve the way high school students applied to college. Or so we thought. The site failed to get traction but we learned something important — we loved working together.
