Snap: Just a passing fad?

The market just doesn't know what to think of Snap or its Snapchat service.

It is either the future of communication - or a social media fad that will last not much longer than one of the messages its army of young users sends.

And that makes a share price which has mostly been built on a very optimistic view of future growth extremely volatile.

Earlier this month it soared by nearly 50% on results that were marginally better than expected - now they've taken a minor tumble because a reality star says the new design is "so sad".

Investors will continue to need strong stomachs - especially when they see how much founder Evan Spiegel is taking home.


Kylie Jenner tweets cost Snap $1.3bn

Kylie Jenner - the reality TV star best known for being Kim Kardashian's half-sister, or for just being famous - has managed to wipe a lot of money from a firm's stock market value.

After tweeting to her 24.5 million Twitter followers that she no longer used Snapchat, the company that owns the messaging app, Snap, saw $1.3bn (£1bn) wiped off its stock market value.

The TV star posted: "sooo does anyone else not open Snapchat anymore? Or is it just me... ugh this is so sad."

Ms Jenner later tweeted a follow-up: "still love you tho snap... my first love".

Snap's messaging app is facing intense competition from Facebook's Instagram.

The firm has also faced criticism for its November re-design to Snapchat.
