SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Snapchat is opening an office in Utah.

The Utah Technology Council announced Thursday the California-based Snap Inc. plans to open a 50-employee facility along the Wasatch Front, an urban area that encompasses the stretch from Salt Lake City south to Provo.

The announcement comes after the social-media platform popular with young people revealed plans for a revamp aimed at attracting a broader range of people amid lackluster user-growth and revenue numbers.

The Utah trade association did not immediately release details on an opening date, exact location or type of facility.
