Snapchat has been on the rise in social media as one of the only applications for sharing disappearing pictures and conversations, along with its recent update to chat face-to-face. However, Snapchat should be expecting some competitors in the near future. It’s no surprise that the market would soon be flooded with copy cats since many social media companies make constant attempts to take over other services.
Instagram is currently in the window for a new developing app—it may be the next big player to steal the game and Snapchat’s spotlight! A banner introducing the app “Bolt” appeared at the top of Instagram’s mobile app on July 23rd advertising a service for “one tap photo messaging”. According to sources, the announcement was quickly pulled, but several people were still able to snag screenshots of it and pass it around Twitter (Engadget).
Unfortunately, there is no further detail on “Bolt”, but there is a chance that the app could offer a unique twist on the format of picture messaging and shove the copy cats aside.
