Snap Inc. Co-Founder and CEO Evan Spiegel discusses how social media is transforming the way people communicate and consume content, from news to gaming, and weighs in on the debate surrounding the privacy of social media users. 

On how the camera has transformed the way people communicate: “I think, fundamentally, Snapchat represents the way the camera has really changed people's lives. And I think the way people understand that today is the way that the camera's become used primarily as a communications tool.”

On Snap’s approach to privacy: “[We view] privacy and privacy engineering as an opportunity. We've been able to invent a lot of ways to get a lot of the benefits of all this technology without necessarily compromising the privacy of our community.”
