Okay is there any doubt why this company is not making/losing money? Mobile device are now coming with this type of stuff built in already and which can be expanded with a simple download ( plenty of this stuff on the app stores) shouldn't Snap be focusing on making it's core service better?

Instagram and Facebook have copied most of snap chats features, there isn't much reason to have snapchat anymore IMO.
