Gravity Data


Snapchat Data Source

Snapchat is a multimedia instant messaging application. The main difference between Snapchat and
other instant messaging apps is that the messages sent between two parties will only last for a short
amount of time before it disappears. Snapchat is also increasingly being used by brands to publish
ad-supported short-form content.

Over 4 million snaps are sent every day, Snapchat has over 319 million users worldwide, and is
particularly well-used in people under the age of 16. Snapchat Ads and Public Profiles have been
designed for businesses to use to market their brands, products, and services, and they state that
they reach 75% of millennials and Generation Z.

Snapchat enables businesses not only to market themselves but also test marketing campaigns for
effectiveness. The data that is produced through Snapchat can be moved to your business’s data
storage facility where you can gain useful insights and understand the best ways to move your
business forward. This is done through the ETL or ELT process quickly and easily.
