Snapchat is all the buzz right now. Ever since it’s initial release in September 2011, it has ben steadily growing, but in the last year it has definitely boomed in popularity. On Tuesday a company spokesperson said that “Snapchat users send 400 million ‘snaps'” a day. This includes both pictures and videos. That number has jumped from the 200 million sent back in June. I’m sure this has a lot to do with why Facebook recently offered the company to buy it for $3 million, but to no avail.

However, what is most interesting is that according to a Mashable article, Snapchat CEO Evan Spiegel stated that 70% of the app’s users are female. This information comes from a new report that was shared with other metrics at a private conference hosted by Goldman Sachs in Las Vegas this past Wednesday.

I myself jumped on the Snapchat bandwagon late, but I have noticed that a lot of the ‘snaps’ I receive are from women. And I am a woman myself, so I don’t doubt this new report at all. Although, I will say that more of the amusing ‘snaps’ I receive come from my male Snapchatters, how about you?
