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.

Ummm yeah private chatting star app is this😂👍

I love Snapchat for chatting with many people and maintaining streaks as a hobby but one thing
Everytime I open Snapchat and switch to chats or press on notification, the camera stays on, why so, is that a glitch, and I feel like my privacy is lost while camera is running in background.......I have to switch back to camera and then back to chats that will solve it tho, and please fix this such that WhatsApp has, the last chat I opened must be there, instead put the last section, either chats, camera or location........or just fix this glitch such that the camera gets off.......luckily I’m an iOS user and the green dot notifies that cam is on, but what bout other phone users, please fix this this glitch is kinda scary....

Snapchat discover has made the app unbearable

Earlier the discover part of Snapchat used to be tolerable because even though it’s literally all trash with no content, it was in a different section and Snapchat could be used without it being shoved in your face.

Now, however, Snapchat has decided that stories aren’t important enough and have the a discover page with stories on the top almost as a side thought. If Snapchat’s discover section was well designed or had actual content this would still be understandable but I am bombarded every day with literal click bait nonsense. Not only that but often when you click on a title that interests you it opens something that has nothing to do with the headline and you have to click through 2-3 ads before you can actually view it.

Not just that but for some reason Snapchat seems to think I just wanna look at random teenage dudes all the time and keeps recommending them to me no matter what I report/hide. I really hope that Snapchat decides to fix this entire discover feature or at the very least employ a recommendation system which doesn’t keep recommending me random tiktok dudes instead of the other nonsense because I’d prefer nonsense over trash
