Parents need to know that Snapchat is a popular messaging app that allows teens to exchange user-generated photos, texts, videos, and calls -- both audio and video.The developer claims that "Snaps" can't be saved within the app and are only viewable for one to 10 seconds before disappearing from the recipient's device, noting that the app notifies the sender if the recipient takes a screenshot of an image.In addition, a video feature called Discover has curated content from outlets including CNN, .The Discover content (which disappears after 24 hours, a much longer window than for other content) often features harsh language, sexual content, violence, advertisements, or videos with, for instance, a character flipping viewers "the bird," and there is no option to opt out.'She told us she didn't count but it was more than a few times that they were together.'The teenager posted news of her pregnancy on Facebook on March 2.'I found it a lot easier to announce it on here than texting all my family & friends individually, but welcoming my sweet little baby October 17th!!' Guffey wrote alongside a photo of a pregnancy test.

In light of a feature called "Snapstreaks," some kids may feel pressure to keep a streak (trading Snaps within 24 hours over a period of days) going.
As of 2016, Snapchat also has video-recording glasses called Specs available for purchase which record short videos that you can send to your phone and, from there, post to Snapchat.
