And more to the point, Snapchat sucks as an ad delivery vehicle. It's not brand safe, and the F500s with proper advertising budgets won't spend with SNAP the same way they spend with Facebook and Google.

So you have a single-product company, with an undifferentiated product and a daily user base which has matured to slow growth / flat growth, and no real way of monetizing said users. They can live off their IPO funding for a while, but without a self-sustaining business model, they have a definitive shelf life.
Calling themselves a camera company was a dead give away.
