CAR-LOVER EVAN SPIEGEL TAKES SNAPCHAT PLACES

700 × 525

Snapchat is easily one of our favorite social platforms here at Ontario Chrysler. About a hundred million daily fellow users agree: Snapchat is fun and very addictive. Co-inventor Evan Spiegel is famous for a few things: turning Mark Zuckerberg down, for one, and marking the milestones of his life with new cars. Got his driver’s license: received an Escalade from Dad. Landed an internship: leased a BMW. And of course it only made sense to buy a Ferrari when Snapchat completed its first big funding blitz.

Clearly, his is not a rags to riches story. Although he invented Snapchat while crashing with his dad, Spiegel wasn’t exactly curled up on a cot behind the furnace. But he did drop out of Stanford a few courses shy of his degree in product design to focus on developing the app we now use for chat and photo and video messaging. As with most social media platforms, teens were the first to embrace the unique concept of photos and videos that disappear almost immediately after they are viewed. Snapchat is constantly evolving in fun new directions, so boredom is seldom an issue. It’s caught on with adults as well: snapchatters view upward of 7 billion videos per day. Between ad revenue and the development of new products such as Spectacles (eyewear that features cameras), things have only ever looked up since Spiegel first mentioned the idea in a classroom at Stanford in 2011.

Snapchat is positioned to go public this year, and that move is one of the most talked about public offerings in tech in a long time, to the tune of about 20 billion. That’s a couple of Ferraris at least. At 26, he’s one of the youngest self-made billionaires in the world according to Forbes, and with a true talent for inventing products that people love, he seems to have a very long and innovative road ahead of him.
