What’s the Deal with All These Messaging Apps?

Dear Lifehacker, I’ve been hearing a ton about different messaging apps these days, but I don’t understand why I should care. One search shows WhatsApp, Viber, iMessages, Snapchat, Kik, Facebook Messenger, and dozens more. I already have text messaging. Why do I need these other apps?
