Sounds interesting - I put it on my reading list! Regarding "what tools to use": Is Snapchat offering an API already? I thought there was just a non-public API f. Ads announced at the moment... Would love to learn more

@fdorfbauer Great question. You're right - at the moment there's only an *announcement* for an advertising API. This API will naturally only allow publishing & measuring of Ads, and it seems it will be non-public (just for a handfull of partners: Still, there are plenty of companies / services working around that Either they're reverse engineering the API, or (more likely) using virtual machines to remote-control the original Snapchat client. There's also quite a lot scammy 3rd party apps in the app stores (not recommend), I've personally tried, they are legit and offer analytics & scheduled posts. Check out the interview with Torben, he's touching on APIs, tools etc.! Looking forward to hear your feedback once you had a chance to look into it!

@_subnet @fdorfbauer isn't the idea of Snapchat for the users to publish real time spontaneous videos and pictures? I would be very interested how Snapchat feels about this. Also are companies really posting pre-made videos? If so I think they are loosing the point of producing content on Snapchat.
Michael KamleitnerMaker@_subnet · Die Socialisten / /
@klajdi_kl Absolutely agree, from a user perspective pre-produced & scheduled content is not very snappy ;) On the other Snapchat themselves are allowing (or will allow soon) to inject pre-produced ads into the stories-stream... which also will be interesting how that will be accepted by users. It's gonna be interesting! Thanks for your feedback, did you have a chance to checkout the ebook? WOuld love to hear your thoughs!
