Snapchat is a very popular app, used by millions of people around the world. This app allows friends to share photos and videos with each other but after they view these photos or videos, they disappear forever.
Snapchat recently added a new feature called “Discover.” On Snapchat’s website, the define Discover as “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.”
Recently, journalists have been using this new feature to interview politicians and other people. Is this the new platform for reporting? Personally, I think this is a wonderful new update to the journalism world. It allows millions of people to watch our interviews.
CNN has its own feature in Discover. Everyday they post new updates on these apps, giving the latest breaking news to the world. These news clips only last ten seconds but at least this is giving journalists a larger opportunity for reporting.
