Instagram takes over Snapchat. This news is not a surprise to anyone interested. Snapchat has lost the number of Facebook-owned photo-sharing platforms since Snap's "Discover" update was released earlier this year. It remains to be seen whether the loss is related to the retirement of the executive. But this year two officers left Snapchat and moved on to another project.

Making things better
First, we have Nick Bell. As Recode reported, Bell created the Discover section of Snapchat. Discover allows others to view your articles and view original content published in publications. He worked in the company for four years and announced his business trip via internal email on Monday, November 12.
"Almost five years in my lifetime, Evan left Snap before deciding on his next adventure, letting me take some time to recharge."
Nick Bell oversaw most of the platform's content, partnerships and original work. I was able to get almost everything I had seen in the Discover section. ESPN, NBC, NFL and others are creating unique content thanks to it. Of course, the material is not more than a clickbait, but it gets a point of view.
But there is more to the story when someone leaves the company. Bell's rumor has been pretty long. Bell used Recode's podcasts only last month. There, he revealed:
"As long as I am very excited about the company and I am very excited about what I do every day, it will be in Snap, and right now we know, we talked about those things today. And I am excited about this stuff we are starting at the end of this year. "
Bell has promoted the company or has had a significant change over the last month. Nevertheless, he finishes his 4 year long trip at Snap. CEO Evan Spiegel mentioned starting with a statement on Recode.
"We are very grateful to Nick and all he has made at Snap, and it was an amazing journey that began with our vision of what content could be on the mobile." Today, Snap's premium content is seen by more people than ever before, and Snap We will no longer be excited about the momentum we are seeing at Originals, we will miss Nick, and we want him to do his best. "
An abbreviated story
Otherwise, over the past four years, Imran Khan, a business executive at Snap, started his own business. With an emphasis on e-commerce space, Khan will create a platform like Amazon where companies can sell their products. According to Recode, Khan is funding most projects and will be a more focused venture than competitors.
Khan has about six employees working under it. One of them is Jason Bosco, Vice President of Engineering at Dollar Shave Club. The former executive has never founded a company before that. However, he has experience with Snap's advertising and business approach. Khan left Snap in September of this year.
Interestingly, the sources insist Khan is entering venture capital. This is significant because of the ten-year history of banking. However, it should be noted that the e-commerce industry is made up of large companies. EBay, Amazon, Wal-Mart, Wishes and more are ahead of Khan. The current CEO has a bold and unique idea for his start-up. He hopes to launch the platform sometime next year.
