Evan Thomas Speigel is the person who developed the Snapchat application. He has served as CEO of popular applications to date.

Since childhood, he lived in a very prosperous and well-off family. Evan is indeed a fan of technology. The first time he had a computer at the age of 7 years. The man who was born on June 4, 1990 continued his studies at Stanfor University in the field of products and then went on to Kappa Sigma, where he met Snapchat Co-Founder, Bobby Murphy.

Evan works under Murphy with the task of being an online social network designer. But after drawing inspiration from Google Circles, the project failed. Despite the failure, the project received recognition from Scott Cook in one of the guest lectures. Even Evan got a job offer at txtWEb, a project to broadcast information from the web via text message.

The basic idea of ​​Snapchat first appeared when Evan met Reggie Brown. At that time Brown wanted to delete the image he had uploaded and shared it into us permanently. Initially the application was named Picaboo as suggested by Brown. But the name cannot attract investors.

Because of a number of differences, Brown finally decided to split up and asked for 30% of the shares of the application. In September 2011, SnapChat began to attract a number of responses from young users and eventually grew into a multimillion-dollar company through a lot of progress and development.

In May 2012, the number of photos sent and shared on SnapChat reached 25 images per second, and in November, users have shared more than one billion photos in the Snapchat iOS app, with 20 million photos shared per day.

With more features added to the application, such as “My Story” and the ability to communicate via video chat, the SnapChat application has become very popular throughout the world.
