MySpace is no longer as popular as it once was, but it is still a popular social network.
Now, that’s because the company is working to turn Snapchat into a social network in which users can share, broadcast, and post photos of themselves in the hopes of attracting the attention of other people.
The move is an attempt to give MySpace the same social-networking infrastructure as Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook.
Snapchat is also making a big push to make it easier for people to share photos on the platform.
Snapchat, for example, lets users upload pictures of themselves as a way of being more open to others.
“People often post in private groups, so if they have an account, it’s easier to invite people into a private group,” said Jason Segal, a Snapchat co-founder and CEO.
“When you have an online community, it really does become like a social graph.”
Segal added that the company also wants to make MySpace even more powerful in the future.
“If you look at Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, we’re in a space where you’re constantly building new products and services,” he said.
“The fact that you can create something for MySpace that is more powerful than anything we have is a great thing.”
Segals first noticed that Snapchat was beginning to build a network of ghostly members when he saw some of the photos posted by MySpace members on his own personal Snapchat.
When Segal saw those photos, he wanted to help people find and share the photos that were ghostly.
He said that MySpace’s ghostly member feature was one of the most powerful features of Snapchat.
“Ghostly is the new normal,” he told Business Insider.
“I think it’s one of our greatest strengths, because you can have a lot of really cool things happening on Snapchat, but you can’t do it if people aren’t sharing.”
