Snapchat IPO LIVE at the NYSE - ABC News

There are 158 million people who use Snapchat every day. But there are also many people who don’t use Snapchat, because they can’t figure out how the darn thing works.

Up until now, that virtual velvet rope been just fine with Evan Spiegel and the rest of the folks at Snap, Snapchat’s parent company.

Their unspoken message: Snapchat’s cool, and if you’re not...

But now Spiegel wants to take Snap public, and he wants investors to value the company at $22 billion or more. So it’s time to get a little bit less mysterious, and a little more practical.

And it’s a good reminder of the line the company has to keep walking, now more than ever: In order to fulfill the business/investor expectations it is setting up, Snap needs to get much, much bigger than it is today, which means it needs to get even less exclusive.

But it also has let the people who already use it feel like they’re part of a private club.
