The Daily Beast: This Is the Data Snapchat Doesn’t Want You to See. “Snapchat takes its secrecy seriously. Very, very seriously. Take the case of one former Snapchat employee. On his first day, he was forced to sit through an ominous orientation in which he was threatened with termination if he so much as breathed a word of what he was working on to friends or family. He was told that he couldn’t bring anyone into the building unapproved, and those who were cleared could only be taken to specific conference rooms or the cafe. After taking a seat at his desk, he realized that he couldn’t even speak about his job internally.” Yuck.
