As a professional software developer I find it especially disturbing that Snapchat's developers and CEO have not been held to a higher standard and appropriately punished for lying to their customers. Everyday I develop software with the end-user in mind and this type of misinformation and data abuse should not be allowed and strongly discouraged publicly and loudly. Without sufficient action against Snapchat's poor decisions the FTC is sending a message to all software developers that they can lie and take their user's personal information without recourse. Please reconsider more severe action to ensure this doesn't happen again. Thank you.
