Peekshare Bringing Disappearing Photo Sharing to LatAm Mobile Market

What: San Francisco based social media platform Peekshare is bringing disappearing photo sharing to the rapidly growing mobile market in Latin America through an app.
Why it matters: The company is officially making the app available on the Play Store this week and is preparing for a major marketing push by the end of the month.

8LxlXMSJ_400x400Peekshare, a San Francisco based social media platform with a unique spin,  is bringing disappearing photo sharing to the rapidly growing mobile market in Latin America in a uniquely private, efficient, and easy to use app.

The company aims to target a market that is hyper-sensitive to data usage and app efficiency, and is running Android devices that are far less advanced than users in North America and Europe, thus creating a market opportunity.

Peekshare apps UI and navigation is counter to that of Snapchat, many users in Latin America are very skeptical of gesture-based navigation and in many cases Snapchat will not run properly.

"The idea of your own messages disappearing shortly after sending them to your friends and your own images disappearing after only 24 hours with all those precious views (and in our case likes) we've found also create a lot of skepticism," said people from Peekshare.

The company is officially making the app available on the Play Store next week and is preparing for a major marketing push by the end of the month.
