Snapchat Opens Office in China Despite Ban
The future’s so bright they gotta wear shades. Snap, Inc. is hiring in China — despite the fact that Snapchat, its signature app, is banned there, along with Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. The company seems to have long-term plans for China: The Shenzhen office will reportedly focus on developing Spectacles, the video-recording glasses swiftly becoming Snap’s next big thing. With China leading many technological advances — and boasting the world’s greatest number of internet users — it may only be a matter of time before Snap goes mainstream.
