Last October, people were sharing 20m photos a day on self-destructing messaging app Snapchat. By June this year, that was up to 200m, and now it has reached 350m as the app continues to go from strength to strength. CEO Evan Spiegel revealed the latest figure at the TechCrunch Disrupt conference yesterday, while hinting at plans for a new social network-style feed for the app, and speculating about whether Snapchat will make any revenues at all before its next funding round: “It’s hard to say, but I hope so.” This, despite Snapchat raising $60m in June this year. We were interested in Spiegel’s hints at plans to work with musicians in the future, though. “In the future, we’d like to support upcoming artists, people that are trying to be actors,” he said. “The social marketing teams of big companies will always figure out a way to advertise on Snapchat. I’d like to create a space for people who have a lot of talent but not a lot of reach.”
