Snapchat Now Has Spam Issues

On the heels of its data breach just a short time ago, Snapchat has a new scandal on its hands: Snap Spam. Unwanted photos and videos got sent around to many users that Snapchat was forced to respond this morning, by saying that the increased spam was not related to the hack that went viral. Instead, CEO Evan Spiegel reminded users to change their settings such that only friends can send them Snaps. It’s an about face for Snapchat, who last year turned down several offers to be bought. At this point, it seems like scandal after scandal, and they’ll have to do a lot of work to regain the trust of users who might look for different communications mediums.
