Around 70% of Snapchat Users Are Women  Snapchat: 70% of users are women

Snapchat may be mysterious about its user numbers, but it skews heavily towards women, according to CEO Evan Spiegel.  “Roughly” 70% of Snapchat users are female, based on Spiegel’s statements at a closed-door Goldman Sachs meeting this past Wednesday (as reported by WSJ).

Other stats about the unique messaging app:

  • Snapchat users are sending 400 million snaps (messages that disappear after a few seconds) a day on the service
  • half of Snapchat’s users have tried out “stories,” a new feature that links multiple messages together

Spiegel said the service has no real global competition, and to expand it will (as Facebook and Pinterest have already done) rely on users to translate its app into new languages.

While there has recently been some buzz about Snapchat seeing more photo/video uploads per day than Facebook, it looks like those numbers don’t really hold up on closer examination.

So what’s the deal? When will Snapchat reveal its user numbers?
