Those snap chat pictures aren't as fleeting as you think they are.

Snapchat is the latest social media craze - iPhone photos are sent but they're timed out when the recipient gets them, then they disappear.

A lot of people are using them to send private shots to their partners.

But CNN's expert Samuel Burke says the website, snapchatleaked.com, puts an end to that privacy.

"(It's) dedicated just to actually encourage people to upload those private, intimate photos online and share them with the world, and they've also created a Facebook page which Facebook has deleted."

The Facebook page got half a million likes in less than a day.
