Instagram vs. Snapchat: a battle to the last feature

  Instagram vs. Snapchat: a battle to the last feature The end of February wasn’t kind to Snapchat-maker Snap: it rolled out a redesign that users decided they hated, and a single Kylie Jenner tweet about the app sent the company’s stock into a spiral. But, really, Snap’s struggles preceded all of that, due in no small part to rival Instagram. Facebook-owned Instagram has “borrowed” plenty of features from Snapchat. And in doing so it has managed, in a relatively short period of time, to build what feels like its own successful social silo (provided you can forget about that whole it’s-a-part-of-Facebook thing).

Snapchat Stock Drops After Rihanna Slams Disgusting Ad - Продолжительность: 8:06 fantano 180 724 просмотра. Snapchat gets a TON of backlash after approving, what many are calling a tone deaf ad that features both Rihanna and Chris Brown .

"This advertisement is disgusting and never should have appeared on our service," reads a statement from Snapchat . "We are so sorry we made the terrible mistake of allowing it through our review process. In 2009, Chris Brown pleaded guilty to assaulting his then-girlfriend Rihanna .

Snapchat has apologized after it was accused of "making light" of domestic violence by posting an ad featuring Rihanna and Chris Brown.

The social media app displayed the "Would You Rather!" ad, which asked whether users would prefer to "Slap Rihanna" or "Punch Chris Brown," but has since been forced to pull it after being criticized by the public.

The commercial appeared to reference Brown's conviction for assaulting Rihanna in his car back in 2009 while they were dating.

Snapchat has now released a statement regarding the ad, which was only published in the U.S., according to BBC's Newsbeat.

Snapchat explained: “The advert was reviewed and approved in error, as it violates our advertising guidelines. We immediately removed the ad last weekend, once we became aware. We are sorry that this happened.”

American activist Brittany Packnett was among those taking to social media to discuss the whole thing, with her insisting that the ad would have been approved. She also referenced a recent update, which means that commercial material now gets displayed between stories.

Snapchat gets a TON of backlash after approving, what many are calling a tone deaf ad that features both Rihanna and Chris Brown . So when Snapchat released an ad for the game “would you rather” that featured options to either slap Rihanna or punch Chris Brown , people, naturally, got very upset.

Snapchat apologized and pulled the ad on Monday, saying in a statement, “The advert was reviewed and approved in error, as it violates our advertising guidelines.” Rihanna declined to accept the platform’s apology for mistakenly placing the ad after a vetting process
