    How is this going to up their user numbers in large amounts enough to compete with Instagram?

    Are their shares still below the original i.p.o

    Their share price is falling by 2-3% every day and this will likely continue through the middle of August at least. It's WAY below the IPO price now and looks like single digits are coming soon.

    Snapchat spectacles seem to have been a bust and I don't see how a selfie drone plays into their strategy. It looks like they're headed towards a GoPro future and that seems like a disaster given GoPro's performance in the past couple years.

    Doesn't help that the Snap CEO publicly trashed Android users and said they're not a priority. Why use a one trick app like Snapchat when Facebook steals their feature and rolls it into Instagram? The Instagram app doesn't suck on Android, either.

    I hadn't heard about him trashing Android,
    Just shows what kind of "business man" he is, here in the U.S the percentage of people with a mobile device is normally around 50 %-iPhone 50%-Android with a small fraction of error going to blackberry and others,
    But internationally Android is dominant, so if he were any sort of person to be a C.E.O he'd stop playing with his drones & keep his comments to himself instead of trashing the Android market he so badly needs to have any hope of saving face.:)
