Facebook is for all: Zuckerberg takes a jab at Snapchat

The legal document filed in a Los Angeles state court concerns claims made in a lawsuit filed by an employee who left the company in 2015, and Snap has said it considers the litigation to be a publicity stunt.

According to CNN, a spokesperson from Snapchat dismissed the claim as ridiculous; adding that the mobile application is available worldwide for free downloads.

Facebook does innovation to serve "everyone" in the community and not just the "high end", its CEO Mark Zuckerberg has said in an apparent swipe at Snapchat boss' reported "poor countries" remark that triggered a controversy in India.

A campaign to #BoycottSnapchat and #UninstallSnapchat also began trending on Twitter on Sunday, while shares of Snap- the parent company of Snapchat -fell to their lowest level in almost a month on Monday.

They also started showing anger by trolling the CEO of the company on various social media plaforms.

A New Harassment Claim Against Bill O'Reilly Has Surfaced
What happens to O'Reilly will tell us more about who is winning the intergenerational battle over 21st Century Fox. The rally is planned for Tuesday just outside of Fox News's headquarters in New York City.

Pompliano alleges that Spiegel said Snapchat is "only for rich people" and that he didn't want to "expand into poor countries like India and Spain". As news of the alleged comments spread, #BoycottSnapchat and #Uninstall_Snapchat began trending in India and around the world.

Denying the claims of Snapchat being termed as a "rich people's app", the attorneys termed Pompliano a "disgruntled employee fired for poor performance". "Obviously Snapchat is for everyone!"

Snapchat is popular among people under 30 for applying bunny faces and vomiting rainbows onto selfies, but many investors are critical of its slowing user growth.

Spiegels remarks caused an uproar in India where users are quickly uninstalling the Snapchat app.

Meanwhile, quite unfortunately, stuck in the crossfire was Indian-based e-commerce company Snapdeal, as users mistook Snapdeal for Snapchat.
