Snapchat in it's official blog said, "Social media companies tell us what to read based on what's most recent or most popular. We see it differently. We count on editors and artists, not clicks and shares, to determine what's important. Discover is different because it has been built for creatives. All too often, artists are forced to accommodate new technologies in order to distribute their work. This time we built the technology to serve the art: each edition includes full screen photos and videos, awesome long form layouts, and gorgeous advertising."

Moreover Snapchat is more popular among teenagers. According to a report in BI Intelligence, Snapchat's user base mostly contains with female profiles. So this new feature helps the brands to directly convey their content to the younger audience.
