Snapchat faces stiff competition from Instagram, which has more than twice the daily users of Snapchat and threatened to stamp out Snapchat by copying features such as photo filters and disappearing slide shows.

Snapchat, which was originally designed as, and found success in being, the answer to the uber-connectedness and constant validation of already-established social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, was beginning to see its star fade a bit as those aforementioned platforms incorporated (copied, you might say?) the things that made Snapchat so unique.

Snap blew past Wall Street expectations in a major way on Monday, reporting stellar user growth and revenue for the final three months of 2017.

Shares of Snap traded up about 1% at $13.98 on Tuesday, with a consensus analyst price target of $12.36 and a 52-week range of $11.28 to $29.44.

But during the fourth quarter, Snap managed to trump this issue.

Snap recently unveiled a new in-app merchandise store, so there's a clear interest in testing the waters when it comes to in-app purchases.

Yes, both digital giants cater to giant advertisers like General Motors and Coke - the kind of brands that have long spent big on TV ads. Steward Partners Investment Advisory LLC boosted its stake in shares of Snap by 967.3% during the 4th quarter.
