Tencent to invest in snapchat for video games? (invest?)


#1

I have been sitting on the sidelines for snapchat…

but now it looks more interesting than ever. It makes much more sense as a gaming platform than anything else…

Interesting…

Tencent could build snapchat up as an AR gaming platform, buy it outright and it would essentially have a backdoor into the US market with a young demographic…

From there, it could wean snapchat users onto its WeChat platform…

This makes perfect sense as a strategy, because Facebook is trying to develop WhatsApp into a western version of WeChat…
