(Snapchat launched this cooperative project to appeal, too, to users who cant attend these events, but still want to experience the action.) A recent high-profile test case came from the final match of the FIFA World Cup, at the game between Germany and Argentina. When viewing Snapchat stories, users had the option of opening Rio Live , a global story that included selfies from beautiful women on Brazils beaches, videos of screaming fans, and scenes from inside the arena. (Whereas past updates have required users to opt-in,Our Story automatically appeared on phones.)

The lack of choice in adding Rio Live immediately caused contention.
