Who is Evan Spiegel, the Founder of Snapchat, who became a billionaire at the age of 26?

If you've been reading the news lately about the features Facebook stole from Snapchat or if you follow Miranda Kerr closely, you've probably heard of Evan Spiegel. To briefly summarize, Evan Spiegel is the CEO of Snap Inc., the founder of Snapchat and the lover of Miranda Kerr. But now, let's leave Spiegel's girlfriend aside and talk about the founding story of Snapchat and what Spiegel has experienced so far.


Evan Spiegel, the founder of Snapchat, whose full name is Evan Thomas Speigel, was born on June 4, 1990 in Los Angeles. Living and growing up in Palisades, New Jersey, where nature dominates, Evan Speigel followed his father in his academic career and was entitled to enter Stanford University with his outstanding success in classes.

Stanford University has a great impact on Speigel's life, who believes that his life will change when he enters Stanford, but not with his academic achievements. This is where Evan Speigel met his friends Bobby Murphy and Reggire Brown, with whom he founded Snapchat. Then, these three friends created Snapchat as a course project in 2012. This idea quickly ceased to be a course project and became a social network that was covered in the world press.

Seeing the potential of Snapchat, Evan Spiegel dropped out of school in 2013 to deal only with Snapchat and returned to his father. Here, he continues his developments on Snapchat and, as a good team with his friends, manages to make Snapchat a social network with millions of users. While Snapchat was just trying to get back on its feet, Facebook, which purchased Instagram for only $1 billion, made an offer of $3 billion for Snapchat, but Evan Spiegel rejected this offer. This incident is actually the beginning of the Facebook and Snapchat war.

As Snapchat grows and develops rapidly, Evan Spiegel, of course, becomes a face known to the whole world. He is frequently the subject of technology media, and his relationship with the famous model Miranda Kerr, who broke up with her husband Orlando Bloom after a while, also brought him to the tabloid press. So much so that the $12 million mansion Spiegel bought to live with Miranda Kerr has been the talk of tabloid reporters for months.


Recently, Snapchat, founded by Evan Spiegel, has gone through difficult times with Facebook adapting the stories feature on Snapchat to platforms such as Instagram and WhatsApp, but regardless of what happened, Snap Inc. It became a public company under the name . Today, Snap Inc.'s $33 billion valuation makes Evan Spiegel one of the youngest billionaires in the world.

In short, Evan Spiegel's life has been going through the triangle of coping with Facebook, Miranda Kerr and a $12 million mansion lately. Thus, we have come to the end of our article. If you wish, you can sigh at the success of this young man who left school at the age of 26 and think "there is no such man in our country", or you can take action to create a Snapchat. Because it is impossible to create an application on everyone's phone in the world and become Miranda Kerr's girlfriend just by saying "wow, look at the man's life".
