Snapchat is a crazy app for snaps and all but it has disadvantages too. Theso called ‘Self Destructive ‘ media shared can be undeleted and screen shot of the snap is also possible .People can invade your private pictures, videos and they can be misused. So one should be careful before involving into such risk .I havetold you a lot about this app how does it roles ,its merits and demerits. So you can enjoy the app for free and download it from your respective stores. FYI (For your information ) I am not paid for their advertisement just letting you know :p….Have fun and Snapchat me 😉
