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.

Love it!!! Parents read if your kid wants it

I love Snapchat it is full of funny spotlights and even fun filters to add to your story you can either make your story private or public or only where your friends can see it I don’t add any boys bc I don’t want them yeah you know anyways it’s a great app I keep my story on friends only that way only your friends can see so I would recommend friends only you can have parental control where if a family member like mom or dad or step parents you can connect the childs phone or iPad to that persons Snapchat acc so the adult can monitor the acc and make sure it’s fine and stuff I LOVE this app and I go on it everyday to keep my streaks and I’m abt to explain that to you streaks are when you snap one of your friends everyday and when you do you get 1 streak and it will keep going until you get to 100 and it will give you a head up saying “ congratulations you and ________ have sent a snap to each other for the past _____ days!!!!!” And that’s is awesome that is not a bad thing so I definitely recommend this app it is awesome oh I forgot to mention there is also maps on Snapchat so that you can track you childs location in the app if you have it but you don’t have to share their location it’s an option not a must I only share my location with VERY CLOSE friends and I share it with my family. Anyways I recommend this app very much to make friends but make sure to monitor it!!! Ok that’s really it I definitely recommend this app!!!!!!!!!

Love this app, but the new bitmojis have got to go.

I've had Snapchat for about 3-4 years. I have all of my memories and friends on it and it's super easy to chat on which I love! The bitmojis have never been a big problem for me, when they were 2d that is. I loved how they looked and how you could dress them easily, and the bitmoji games were really cool. The first time they changed them to 3d, I was still angry because it really was ugly and I wanted the other ones back. But they changed it AGAIN and this time it's absolutely horrendous. I look like a distorted deceased pig that has been working for 5 months straight. Also when your scrolling through your friends on Snapchat you don't see the 2d nice face anymore, you see the 3d one. I've been seeing a lot of reviews about the AI, which I don't really think has been a problem for me, but the bitmojis have. The bitmojis have always been a fun addition to Snapchat for me. I liked dressing them up and stuff like that, but now they really don't look good anymore and I think a lot of people can agree with me. My friends hate it, and people on TikTok hate it too. Please read this, thank you.
