Zuckerberg tried his best to either acquire Snap or get rid of it in the social media race but it seems that the photo-sharing is nowhere close to budge from its current position. To deal with such competition, Snap is now seeking help from other slightly smaller organizations for the same. The company believes that there is nothing more appealing to the market than the latest technology. Taking this into consideration, the main focus of the company is now Snap Acquisition of various ad tech companies.

The main purpose behind Snap’s enthusiasm in acquiring these technology companies is in order to boost its appeal in the market. With the Stories feature of this app not being exclusive anymore, it is gradually losing its high position in the market. In order to take necessary steps before the company rolls downhill, the company is already in acquisition talks with a tech startup called AdRoll. Snap Inc. is aiming to grow its ad business in particular and solve allay investor concerns which have adversely affected its stock price.
