In Snapchat’s bid to stay ahead of the competition, they are now looking to Student journalists to keep the brand moving. Snap has asked a good number of ollege newspapers to create stories.

Business Insider in a released report also stated that this is the first time Snap is using super localized stories. They will only be viewed within a geographical location obviously filtered with your location data and perimeters created.

The stories featured will be like those of TasteMate, BuzzFeed and Mashable. They will roll out during the next academic year.
