Is SnapChat a Threat to Google?

In a effort to bolster the level of talent on their staff SnapChat just announced it has hired away one of Google's top cloud engineers. 

Robert Magnusson was a Google engineering director who was responsible for Google App Engine, the same cloud platform SnapChat is based on. 

SnapChat currently has 15 engineers on staff but according to cofounder Bobby Murphy the company plans to hired as many as 50 more by the end of the year.
