MLS side New York Red Bulls have joined photo-sharing service Snapchat.
Snapchat has an odd reputation. In mid 2014 it faced the wrath of users for its weak security which saw 1000s of supposedly private photos stolen, and most non-users suspect it is a place where lewd photos are shared between people looking for an easy hook up.

In that context, it might seem like a strange service for a professional football side to start using.
Nonetheless, New York Red Bulls are unperturbed. They announced via Twitter this morning that they are now using the controversial app. Apparently the players have been put in charge of taking the photos in the first few weeks, which is surely a recipe for a PR disaster.
We’ll be keeping our eyes open for any sign of shenanigans!
The Red Bulls were beaten semi-finalists in last season’s MLS playoffs, but have lost Tim Cahill and Thierry Henry over the winter.
