Editors’ Notes

From its humble origin as a fun way to send self-erasing photo messages, Snapchat has grown into one of our favorite social media apps. And not just for the hilarious face filters and cool geographical photo tags. It’s become one of the best ways to share memories, maintain friendships, and stay up to date on news and views from our go-to websites.


It’s really good but somethings are a bit wrong.

I have been using Snapchat for a long while now and it’s been working perfectly until a couple weeks ago. I use this filter all the time and one day it suddenly just stopped work and glitches me out of the app. I think this may be a difficultly for me and couple of people I know. But you should definitely get the app it’s worth it , just go download the app!

But parents be aware this app it kind off dangerous for kids who don’t understand properly. Lots of random people add you and you just have to not add them back if you don’t know them. But for kids it’s hard to understand for an example: my sister has Snapchat and she is 10 and she added this person thinking it was someone else because the first name was the same as one of her friends. In the end it was just this creepy old man asking inappropriate questions about her. We blocked and reported the problem. It’s a safe app if you know what to do and who to add. Just let your kids be careful because there are a lot of creeps out there.

Absolutely love it!

Snapchat is so amazing, I can’t believe it has only 3.7 stars as of January 2021. I’ve been on it for years. One of the best features is the fact that conversations here aren’t saved (unless you want them to be), which kind of makes your conversations more private/secure I think. One of the things I love most about Snapchat is it isn’t owned by Facebook, who steal all your personal data. And hopefully it will NEVER be owned by them. Maybe Snapchat does use some of your personal data, but at least you have the benefit of security here. I absolutely love how private Snapchat is for most of the part. I do wish we could change our usernames at least ONCE, and I wish they didn’t have so many ads when you’re reading the magazine subscriptions, but come on they’ve got to earn money somehow so I won’t complain too much about it. Apart from that the fact that things happening on Snapchat are almost temporary is a plus point. I do think allowing us to pick what colour we can draw on snaps in would be nice though! Would be a really cool feature kinda like Instagram!
