Snap Inc. CEO Evan Spiegel took a call from a USC student eager for career advice and offered him three bits of wisdom. First, Spiegel told 19-year-old Daniel Newman that a key to success is to find something you can do very well and become the best at it. "The thing that really resonated with me was finding a specialty," Newman said. Secondly, Spiegel warned against building a company that is wholly reliant on another company. Finally, Spiegel advised Newman to increase his involvement in student organizations and to take initiative. – BUSINESS INSIDER

Snap Inc. has been cultivating media partners like NBC Universal, Hearst, Turner, and A&E Networks, among others. “Brands that buy TV shows expect to be able to do some product integrations," said one media executive, who works on content for Snapchat said. "That was not on the table at the beginning, but now Snapchat is open to it." – ADAGE
