Sexting App Snapchat Is A Threat To Facebook, And It Is 2013's Most Likely Billion Dollar Startu

• http://www.businessinsider.com, Nicholas Carlson
 The main reason people use Facebook is to share photos, and Instagram was threatening this dominance on mobile, where consumer computer usage is going.

Now there is a new startup that presents a similar threat.

It's called Snapchat. It's an app where users send each other self-destructing photos. Teens use it to send each other provocative images, which adults call "sexting."

Like Instagram, it's a mobile photo-sharing app, and it's come out of nowhere to grow like crazy.

Facebook already tried to build a Snapchat clone, which failed to gain wide adoption.

Snapchat poses a real threat to Facebook, and because of that it wouldn't surprise us if Facebook – or one of its rivals like Google, Yahoo, or Twitter – stepped in to acquire it at a massive premium over its current $50 million valuation.
