Wikipedia: Snapchat
Snapchat is an image messaging and multimedia mobile application created by Evan Spiegel, Bobby Murphy, and Reggie Brown when they were students at Stanford University. The app’s marketed product name was originally used to form the company Snapchat, Inc, which was later renamed Snap,Inc. The corporate headquarters are located in Venice, California. The prototype for Snapchat was started by Brown and Spiegel as a project for one of Spiegel’s classes at Stanford, where Spiegel was a product design major. Beginning under the name “Picaboo”, the idea was to create an app which allowed users to share images that were explicitly short-lived. When, in April 2011, Spiegel floated the product idea in front of his class as a final project, the classmates balked at the thought of temporary photos. Murphy was eventually brought into the project to write the source code for the application, and Picaboo first launched as an iOS-only app in July 2011 from Evan Spiegel’s living room (who was still staying at home with his father when not away at school). The application was relaunched two months later under the name Snapchat.
