And with a rotating set of fun features and filters, it's also the response to Facebook and Twitter's stale experiences.
The philosophy behind this unconventional landing place is that chats all begin with the conversation, and in Snapchat, images do the talking.
That makes even more sense when you think of how the app treats its photos and videos ephemerally.
