Snapchat is reportedly working on integrating support for events into its app, a feature that would directly compete with Facebook’s own Event platform.
Is this the day when Snapchat finally turns the tables around and starts copying Facebook?
The new Snapchat feature was uncovered by Jane Manchun Wong, the Internet’s now favorite app researcher. It’s unclear how the feature would work, but from a screenshot shared by Wong on Twitter shows how its interface looks.

Users can create events, and assign it a time and a place. There is no information on whether the feature will support both public and private events. The new event feature could work with Snap Map, and show users events based on location and whom of their friends are attending.
