Snapchat is one of the most convenient and fun-filled social networking services to communicate with others. One can use Snapchat to exchange pictures and videos (called Snaps) with others. All the posts and messages you sent are visible only for a certain time unless the user saved it. While recording a snap, you must hold down your finger on the Snapchat screen.
