Yet another reason Snapchat sucks: they blame their users. 

Not only are there dozens more apps like these in both app stores, many are profiting by charging users for premium upgrades, such as the ability to save unlimited numbers of photos and videos. Ten of these Snapchat-saving apps reached a combined 1.7 million downloads in Google Play alone, according to the FTC.

For its part, Snapchat says these apps violate its terms of use and essentially blames hacking victims for using these services.

Stay classy, Snapchat.

P.S. -- Oh snap!

11. A database of some 200,000 Snapchat photos were leaked after a third-party app used to save people’s otherwise-disappearing pictures got hacked. Snapchat’s response: it’s not our fault. Dubbed the “Snappening,” this is another example of a company shifting the blame to the users and trying to distance themselves from fault.

Ugh. Why does ANYONE trust Snapchat?
