It's about the moment, a connection between friends, and not just a pretty picture

Engineering Team: At Snapchat, we've been able to accomplish an enormous amount with 25 engineers. Our users send over 700M snaps/day, making it one of the most-used apps in the world. Our Stories feature is also amassing over 500 million views per day. Check out our latest update Snapchat Here (May 1st): tinyurl.com/SnapchatHERE Product: Experience a unique way to share life with friends. Snap a photo or a video, add a caption, and send it to a friend (or maybe a few). They'll view it, laugh, and then the snap disappears from the screen - unless your friend takes a screenshot! The image might be a little grainy, and you may not look your best, but that's the point. It's about the moment, a connection between friends, and not just a pretty picture. The allure of fleeting messages reminds us about the beauty of friendship - we don't need a reason to stay in touch. Give it a try, share a moment, and enjoy the lightness of being!

Snap's first diversity report says only 4 percent of the company identifies as Black

  • The Verge
  • 1 month ago

Snap released its first diversity report today after years of resisting pressure to make those statistics public. The report details the minimal growth the 3,195-person company has made in regards to hiring people of color and women:

  • Black and African American people only represent 4.1 percent of the entire workforce, the report states, and Hispanic / Latinx people make up 6.8 percent. Both groups account for only 3.2 percent of leadership; Black and African American people make up 2.3 percent of tech roles while Hispanic/LatinX account for 3.4 percent.
  • Women only make up 32.9 percent of Snap’s workforce with only 16 percent in technical roles.

Along with the numbers, Snap says it’s setting new goals, including doubling the number of women in tech at Snap by 2023 and doubling the number of underrepresented US racial and ethnic minorities at Snap by 2025. Long-term, the team says it wants to “reflect the racial and gender diversity (including non-binary) of the different places where we operate.”

The easiest way to start meditating is now in... Snapchat?

  • Mashable
  • 2 months ago
  • Snap announced at its Virtual Partner Summit in June that Snapchat users would soon be able to access free Headspace meditations directly in the chat section of its app.
  • It's an inaugural application of the company's new product, Snap Minis, which are "bite-size" applications that live within chat, designed to be used with friends. Headspace Minis go live Monday.
  • One of the standout parts of the Headspace Mini is that the typically solo activity of meditation is, in this iteration, social. Snapchat says that's by design. The in-chat meditations are one way it's trying to encourage supportive friendships, while also easing the fear of trying a new, vulnerable activity like meditation by making it something friends can do "together."
  • Snapchat users don't have to have the Headspace app or even be Headspace subscribers to access the meditations because the Headspace Mini lives within Snapchat itself.

Read the letter Snap's head of diversity sent to staff about its offensive Juneteenth filter

  • The Verge
  • 3 months ago
  • Snap’s vice president of diversity and inclusion apologized this weekend for the distribution of a Juneteeth filter that many people found offensive and offered new details about the how it was created.
  • In an email distributed to the company, Oona King said the filter was a collaboration between black and white employees — and pushed back against criticism that the company had been culturally insensitive.
  • The filter asked users to “smile and break the chains” of slavery. King, who is black, said that “in hindsight, we should have developed a more appropriate lens.”
