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.

overall really good

it’s kind of like a basic social media app that the majority of ppl have now. it’s got spotlight which is kind of like tiktok (which is now updated so you can comment on it), snap maps which is useful in case one of your friends is out with someone dodgy you can watch where they are etc and you can keep track of where your friends are on holiday etc which is kind of cool, filters which are cool (the only problem with it is some people don’t feel comfortable not using filters because it makes them fit the ‘standard of beauty’ but if your using them for funny filters to send to your friends they can be really cool), you make your own bitmoji which is really cool (ideally they would have more hairstyles for ppl with curly hair cos there aren’t many at the moment but it’s cool cos it’s got various religious headscarfs and different types of hairstyles and outfits and various body types which is v body positive), and then there is the basic chat feature which is like any other msging app. another thing that’s good ab snapchat is the streaks idea which is nice because it’s a really casual way of staying in touch with friends/ family without the wyd/ hru msgs which can be awkward. i’m constantly using snapchat and i think if you’ve got kids it could be a nice way to introduce them to using social media and how to be safer online. 10/10 app would just change a few things i’ve already mentioned.

Do you like Snapchat ?

I love Snapchat because it is an easy way to communicate to your friends/family. It is really good because TikTok drains your battery really easily and Snapchat spotlight does not and it is just as good. You can use Snapchat without Wi-Fi and TikTok has to use Wi-Fi. So that is why I give Snapchat a 5 star rating. I like all of the filters on Snapchat they are my fav the cut one is my fav. I like how you can save chats on Snapchat. I like how you can get filters on FaceTime with people it is really cool. One thing I don’t really like about Snapchat is that when somebody is being mean to you via messages or photos you could screenshot them photos for proof if you needed to show a trusted adult because it good really bad but when you screenshot it tells you when you are taking screenshots and how many times you do. But that situation could also be good for some reasons because if they are being mean to you or cyber bullying you they would know that they are in the wrong. I also like how you can have a private story. I like how on snap maps you can put it on for some people and take it off for some people. I understand why there is an age limit on Snapchat 12+ because random people could send you friend requests when you don’t know them and you know how little ones can just click the accept button and they could be like a really bad person so that is why there is a 12+ age limit on Snapchat.

Hope this review helped you under stand why Snapchat is good.
