According to Snapchat, in the United States, 90% of all 13-24-year-olds and 75% of all 13-34-year-olds use their app. This has surpassed the use of Twitter and Facebook for US teens. It’s projected that the app will add 1.2 million 12-17-year-olds by 2020!


The image and video messaging app has maintained its success rate by developing new filters and interactive lenses for their temporary messages. In terms of utilizing the app for your business, Snapchat is still a great channel to market towards millennials and Generation Z.

With the average time that users spend per day at almost an hour, it’s more likely your advertisements will be seen.
