Do you want to follow people on Snapchat? If yes, then you are in the right place. For those who are not aware of Snapchat, here is a brief intro for them. Snapchat is a very popular messaging app launched by Evan Spiegel, Bobby Murphy, and Robert Brown. The app has over 170 million users from all around the world with 200 million pictures shared on regular basis using it. It enables users to share images and videos with their known ones. The main cause behind Snapchat’s huge growth lies in the concept that multimedia texts can’t accessible after a time limit. Snapchat is very popular on iOS or Android.
Snapchat is the 1st messaging App that brought AR into a messenger. It is just like the Pokemon Go game in which you can place any AR picture and experience it in the real world. Rather than AR Snapchat also gives features like:
- Snap map to track/record everything that is going on in the world.
- Personal Emoji to create your own emoji and view it as a real-life with the help of AR.
- AR Stickers also experience the world with unique Stickers. You can place any sticker anywhere in the real world.
- Special effects are available to modify any image, video. Like you can modify the voice pitch to make it funny. You can also create stickers of your own.
- Snapchat News to keep track/record of what’s going on in the world. All news is published by trusted publishers like The New York Times, Harper’s Bazaar, The wall street journal, and much more.
Besides everything today you’ll learn how to follow someone on Snapchat:
Follow People On Snapchat:
Following someone on Snapchat is just like following someone on Twitter. You don’t need any ‘approval’. LinkedIn or Facebook both have something quite similar. You can also follow someone on FB or LinkedIn and check all their public posts in your feed. Just like this, you can also follow someone on Snapchat and check their story. They don’t need to have to follow you back i.e. add you as a friend. You can’t share them a private text though unless they add you back.
On Snapchat, ‘following’ means to add someone as your friend. We call it ‘following’ because that’s the only term used by many popular social media websites.
So there are two methods to do this. You can search for someone by their handle, or you can simply scan their Snapcode. The major difference between these two is that you can’t get a user’s Snapcode until they’ve shared it privately or publicly with you.
Follow Someone Via Search By Name
Head over to Snapchat and then click the search bar located at the top. Then input the name of that person you like to follow on Snapchat. You don’t want to know a person’s Snapchat user name but it’ll help if there are many people with the same name on your search results.
Also, you must know a difference between a publisher’s account or a user account. For instance, the BBC doesn’t have any Snapchat account by the name BBC. Also, if you search for CNN in the search bar, it’ll find the CNN account that is a publisher account. Snapchat will explain to you if an account is a publisher account so that you know who you’re following. Simply click the ‘Add’ button to add an account to your friend’s list.
Follow People On Snapchat Via Scan Snapcode
As mentioned above, you must have the Snapcode for a person to add them as a friend. The Snapcode is shared as a snap. You just save it to your camera roll. On the other hand, if you check a Snapcode online, or printed somewhere else, you can then capture a picture of it. Snapchat will can also scan the code from the photo.
Head over to the Snapchat then click the Snapchat icon located at the top left of your screen.
From your profile screen, simply click the ‘Add Friends’.
On the ‘Add Friends’ screen, click the ‘Snapcode’ option.
Snapchat will also open your camera and then ask you to choose the image that has the Snapcode in it.
Then it’ll check the account and provide you the option to add it, or if it is a publisher account simply subscribe to it.
Snapchat is the famous instant messaging apps that allow you to share snaps on the go while sharing messages as well. You can also get access to lots of various image filters and also geographical filters that allow you to increase your pictures and share them with your friends.
