We all know that Snapchat's meat and potatoes are selfies and videos, but that doesn't mean the company isn't interested in exploring new ideas.

It's not video-related this time; instead, it's text — no, not text messaging.

Scheduled to debut on June 27th, the social platform has announced "Real Life," an online magazine that will offer "essays, arguments, and narratives about living with technology."

Snapchat employee and social media critic Nathan Jurgenson will serve as editor-in-chief and run the publication.

Real Life will publish one piece of writing every weekday, the announcement says, but readers should expect gadget reviews or news about the industry.

"We may eventually expand to other mediums and formats as well," Jurgenson adds.
