The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Snapchat, the app that makes sexting safe, turned down an acquisition offer of approximately 3 billion dollars from Facebook.
Facebook desperately wants a piece of Snapchat because the young teens aren’t using Facebook, they’re using Snapchat.
Snapchat’s founder, Evan Spiegel, will not likely consider an acquisition or investment until early next year. He feels that Snapchat will continue to grow over the course of next year, which will justify an even larger cash-out.
Unfortunately for Mr. Spiegel, Snapchat could just be a fad. A new, more sext-friendly app could be released within the next year and make Snapchat totally irrelevant. Regardless, I still respect him for turning down 3 billion dollars because who couldn’t use 3 billion dollars? Oh the things I would do for 3 billion dollars…
More importantly, I’m glad that Snapchat has yet to sell itself to Facebook because Facebook would surely find a way to censor Snapchat and get rid of nude Snapchats. I don’t know how, but I do know that Facebook hates sex and porn. Therefore if Facebook were to acquire Snapchat, it would only be a matter of time until nude Snapchats were a thing of the past. Just look at how terrible Instagram has become since Facebook took it over.
Though this is just the insane speculation of your favorite sex blogger and not based in fact whatsoever, this Thanksgiving I’m thankful for the preservation of nude Snapchats.
Let’s look at some nude Snapchats and thank Evan Spiegel for deciding that they were not worth losing, even for 3 billion dollars: Read more…
