Snapchat is in news yet again, and this time for surpassing Facebook in terms of photo-uploads by its users. Snapchat spokesperson told CNET that the networking website now accounts for 400 million photos per day while Facebook records 350 million photo-uploads in a day which was mentioned in a Business Insider report. The news makes up to a significant reason behind Snapchat s rumored spurning of multi-billion dollar buyout proposals from Facebook as well as Google.

Reportedly, the social network his 400 million-figure given by Snapchat comprises of both photo and video messages, and is likely to also include copies of one photo sent to several users. The company had recorded 200 million uploads in June, which means that the company has doubled its photo-uploads in the last few months. This certainly is a major mark for Snapchat considering that it has a smaller number of users than Facebook, which has lately been in several reports for losing significant number of teen users.
