“There is real value in sharing moments that don’t live forever.”

“Traditional social media, in the view of our company, has become a bit repetitive. It doesn’t feel very good to be marketed to by your friends. Snapchat is different because it says, look, friends aren’t valuable to you just because they can get you into a cool party.”

“Snapchat changed that perception of deleting something as bad. Online, typically you delete something if it’s bad or if it’s really embarrassing.”

“Social media is about friending someone so they’ll invite you to a party or get you a job. If that’s the work, Snapchat is the playground.”

“The social marketing teams of big companies will always figure out a way to advertise on Snapchat. I’d like to create a space for people who have a lot of talent but not a lot of reach.”

“For Snapchat, the closer we can get to ‘I want to talk to you’ – that emotion of wanting to see you and then seeing you – the better and better our product and our view of the world will be.”

“Having been bullied growing up, it’s something that’s really near and dear to my heart. You probably won’t have many friends on Snapchat if you’re being a jerk.”
