Snapchat has announced map.snapchat.com, a website available via the Snap maps which will broadcast the “Our Stories” feature and general snaps that will be on a global map.
According to Mashable, “Map Stories are algorithmically generated from a certain location” and users can broadcast Snap maps by putting the embed code in their website.
The company released the web player that gives customers the ability to have their public snaps be seen online last month.
Media groups are being motivated to use the web version of Snap Maps to publish highlights during a live event. The embed will broadcast the event live instead of what is on the story’s publication. This a great way for media groups to get notice and increase their popularity.
Hopefully, the fact that Snap Maps will bring some positive feedback to the company from their users.
