Snap Originals – Original Video Content on Snapchat

It is no wonder that the original video content is gaining more and more importance in the online world. With streaming platforms such as Netflix, HBO Go, Amazon Prime and many others, a move to the original video content in social media was what everyone might have expected. And we are not talking here about the live videos people are sharing over Facebook or Twitter. We are talking about curated video productions.

It seems that Snapchat has caught the wave and announced yesterday, at Snap Partner Summit in Los Angeles the launch of new Snap Originals. 

What Are Snap Originals?

As we already said, Snap Originals are a series of curated video content, from docuseries to comedies and teen dramas that will stream on Snapchat. But they say it’s not just the content that is original, but also the way it is presented. It is made for a new way of watching video content on mobile devices.
