Their main target is picture perfect communication through photo sharing. Snapchat can be related to texting photos and Instagram can be related to instant photos. These two apps are specifically for smart phone use only.
On the other hand, Facebook is not as focused as Snapchat and Instagram. It consists of timelines, wall posts, advertisements, photos, and past communication. Facebook may have more users but with the new social media networks arriving and attention spans becoming shorter, instant picture perfect communication has increased.
