Tribe 2.0

Introducing Augmented Messaging™

TechCrunch
Can mobile app startups please stop building SMS invite systems into their apps already? The latest example of a venture-backed startup getting dinged by customers for having spammed their entire address book without permission is Sequoia portfolio company Tribe.

New Snapchat

The new Snapchat, redesigned to separate social from media

New Snapchat now separates the social from the media. This means that the Chats and Stories from your friends are on the left side of Snapchat, and the Stories from publishers, creators, and the community are on the right. It also includes algorithm changes to surface your best friends.
