To end the closed nature of its platform, Snapchat is creating a new distribution method called Stories Everywhere, which would allow its content to be embedded on other platforms and pages.

Just in case there are any Memories you'd no longer like to be reminded of, Snapchat says that you can edit the Story before saving or sharing it. Snapchat's Memories feature was introduced in July of a year ago. Throughout the year, Facebook has been launching new features for Instagram, turning the app into its own little version of Snapchat.

Snapchat Stories are videos from publishers and personalities that stay up for a 24-hour period and typically highlight special events.

The move is just one response to their stalling growth, with other moves being a redesigned user interface, a more focused feed and major improvements to their Android application. The success of this feature has been undeniable and it seems that other social media platforms have finally chose to emulate it. If you don't like the options that Snapchat selects for you, the team at Snap says that you will be able to edit it. Chopra was the former Vice President and global head of video and News Corp, a multinational mass media company based in the US.

The new video plans come amid a wider shake-up, according to Cheddar, who reports that Snapchat has "restructured" its content division under Nick Bell, VP of content. And the app will continue to invest in developing new features that make sure that the users will have an app that is of high quality. CEO Evan Spiegel had announced that the redesign would to make the app "easier to use" but didn't specify when the redesign would be released.

Since Snap went public in February, the company has been facing stagnant user growth and declining revenues especially in the third quarter of the year when it reported disappointing figures in key departments.
