Evan is a cofounder of The Snapchat.
It was founded in 2011 by Evan Spiegel, Reggie Brown, and Bobby Murphy, who were students at Stanford University.
Brown suggested to Spiegel an idea of an application to share moments that last only 24 hours. Then they agreed to start social media platform modeled on disappearing content. The duo then approached Bobby Murphy to write the code used to build the app.
An interesting fact that in July 2011, the Picaboo was launched, but then Brown disappeared from the projects for unknown reason and later in September Evan and Bobby renamed it in Snapchat. By 2015, Snapchat was reaching 75 million users on a monthly basis.
By 2018, 99% of Snap, Inc’s total revenue came from advertising, according to the company’s internal financials.
