Snapchat launches Discover

Snapchat Discover

Snapchat has this evening launched its newest feature, Discover, which channels media and brand content through to its 100m users. Snapchat has been used by numerous brands recently, but this new function promises to change how users consume brand content.

Here's what Snapchat has said in its announcement about what Snapchat is planning:

 Snapchat Discover is a new way to explore Stories from different editorial teams. It’s the result of collaboration with world-class leaders in media to build a storytelling format that puts the narrative first. This is not social media.

 

Social media companies tell us what to read based on what’s most recent or most popular. We see it differently. We count on editors and artists, not clicks and shares, to determine what’s important.

 

Discover is different because it has been built for creatives. All too often, artists are forced to accommodate new technologies in order to distribute their work. This time we built the technology to serve the art: each edition includes full screen photos and videos, awesome long form layouts, and gorgeous advertising.
