Snap Inc is shutting its division focused on making augmented reality (AR) services for businesses within months of its launch, as the ad-dependent social media company struggles in a tough economy. The closure of the division will result in about 170 job cuts, said Snap, which like other social media firms, has been facing the brunt of weak advertising spending from inflation-hit businesses since early last year. Snap, the maker of photo messaging app Snapchat, started AR Enterprise Services (ARES) in March, looking to diversify its revenue beyond digital advertising that makes up the vast majority of its revenue.
