Forbes.com "Disruptors":
More than 350 million photos are uploaded just to Facebook each day. Terrified that all of those images will stick around forever? Snapchat to the rescue. It’s a smartphone app created by two former Stanford frat brothers that offers photo flashing: the opportunity to send a photo or video to someone and have it “self-destruct” within seconds. By rendering digital photos fleeting rather than archival, Snapchat offers a face-saving alternative to our constantly tracked, unerasable lives on the Internet—and a chance to reintroduce a modicum of privacy. Users are now sharing over 100 million snaps daily.

The revenue-less Snapchat has attracted nearly $14 million in venture funding, as well as its own Winklevoss-style lawsuit...

No, Snapchat Isn’t About Sexting, Says Co-Founder Evan Spiegel

The sexting wars: The two Stanford students set to make millions out of people texting dirty pictures to each other

Snapchat CEO: I Don't Believe People Are Using My App For Sexting

The Unbearable Lightness Of Snapchat: An Interview With One Of The Co-Founders note:

Therein lies the biggest critcism of Snapchat, and perhaps the reason why it became popular in the first place: A self-destructive private photo app is nearly begging to be the Official Sponsor of Sexting.
and the NYT is ON IT. note:
Since the overwhelming majority of Snapchat’s users are age 13 to 25, the application has provoked concerns from parents. The company acknowledges that the service can be misused, but does not dwell on it. “We are not advertising ourselves as a secure platform,” Mr. Spiegel said. “It’s a communication platform. It’s not our job to police the world or Snapchat of jerks.”

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
