Has Instagram Made Snapchat Irrelevant?

Has Instagram made Snapchat irrelevant? Wait, was Snapchat ever relevant to anyone other than teens in the first place? How many of you guys use Snapchat? What about Instagram?

Instagram announced today that users will now be able to message each other photos and video that self destruct, much like the vaporizing messages that first made SnapChat a billion-dollar baby in Silicon Valley. Instagram also confirmed that it’s taking a page from its parent company Facebook’s playbook and adding live video in the coming weeks. Instagram’s live video will differ from Facebook’s feature in that it cannot be viewed again once the broadcast is over.
