Snapchat takes its secrecy seriously. Very, very seriously, states The Daily Beast, which added that the company “operates in secret “need to know”-type bubbles, where many in sales, content, or non-engineering roles feel kept in the dark.

“Aside from an elite group of engineers and those in Snapchat CEO Evan Spiegel’s inner circle, most employees aren’t given access to the version of the app where its newest features are tested and deployed. This leaves some employees feeling left out.

““I find out about new products mostly through the news,” (an) employee said.”
The report also stated that: “As secretive as Snapchat is about its internal operations, it’s equally as secretive about its data. Snapchat rarely reveals numbers. And the ones it does release are very broad.

“While Snapchat has released some overarching statistics during its public statements—including 178 million daily active users in the third quarter of 2017—the company has not made public any detailed stats related to many of the app’s most popular elements.

“Employees, partners, and investors have been kept in the dark about how well (or poorly) many key features of the app are doing.”
