Fark catering to the 18 and under crowd now?

Do they block the ability to take screenshots? No? Ok then.

I'd wager a pretty substantial number of users are well over 18, married, and using it for all the wrong reasons.

Shhh be quiet.  We don't want girls to cease sending pictures.

The only way Snapchat and similar tools could possibly work the way people using it think it works is if the people using it are only sending messages and pictures to people as computer illiterate as themselves.

What's unsafe about stuff like this is it creates an illusion of privacy and safety.

Maybe they should have sold for billions of dollars????

Yeah, if I was a divorce attorney, even having it installed on your spouses phone would be pulled out at trial.

If you trusted snapchat before this leak, you're a moron.   If you trust any on-line service, you're a moron.

Assume everything you use on the internet is already broken, and no number of proxies can protect you.

Then act accordingly.

Amateur.  The real pros save things without seeing them first.

I wonder how the guy who got offered a gazillion bucks to sell Snapchat feels about turning it down now.

Even if there was a way to stop you from taking a screenshot with your own phone, there is never a way to keep you from taking a picture of a phone with a camera. (Unless the app comes with a guy who is sent to the same place the pic goes to, and who slaps the camera out of your hand when you try to take a picture of it)

I would pay dearly for an app that sent a guy to slap cameras & smartphones out of people's hands.  I would use that app all the damn time.  Silicon Valley venture capitalists hear my call!

My kids have fun sending me random Snapchats. I send some back. I'm ok if that stuff lives forever on the web. I've talked to them about how easy it would be to screenshot a Snapchat, but that's about all I can do. We've tried to give them the tools, but if they wanna send stupid (XXX) pics, then they'll have to live with it.

I don't understand the allure of Snapchat. How are you supposed to fap to a picture that lives for three seconds?

You'd need at least three pictures to finish.

/what?

You get another app that saves the snapchat pictures. Duh.

Not as effective as you think when the site itself advises you:

"...so if you want to keep its content, you must copy it before closing this page. "
