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.

Amazing app, my friends and I love it.

It’s a great app, most of my high school uses it. It’s the perfect way to keep in-touch with all of your homies on the weekends or after school. It’s super easy to use, there is little to no delay in video and voice calls, as well as messages. The format makes it easy to read texts and send them, and it’s super convenient to send a one-time picture that doesn’t take up any space on your camera roll, but if you want, you can save all pictures taken to your device. Posting to your story is an easy way to share your adventures (or just daily life) with your friends (and I mean only your friends, which makes it safer than a lot of other social media apps) and you can tag other friends in your story if they’re in the the picture or you just want them specifically to see it. Streaks is also a great feature to keep in contact with your buddies. It can be just a tradition every morning just for the number or it can be a way to make sure you contact long-distance pals every day. You can also get it on more out-dated devices, like my own device, even if you have a really old iOS. I love this app and I’m sure you will, too!

Snap has a bug and they won’t fix it!!

I went into Snapchat one morning to find myself logged out. After entering my password, a screen saying my account was locked for allegedly “violating community guidelines” popped up. I was severely confused because I felt like I didn’t do anything wrong. After reviewing the guidelines, I couldn’t think of anything I did to warrant my account being locked so I decided to do further research. Turns out a friend of a friend had her account locked for allegedly “violating community guidelines” as well despite not doing anything against the guidelines. Throughout the next week, I did extensive research and contacted anyone I could via twitter and etc but I was disappointed with the lack of actual help I was receiving. I finally tried to unlock my account but to my dismay it is permanently locked. This was my worst case scenario as my Snapchat account had many friends I no longer could talk to in person and who’s number I did not have. After moving halfway across the country, our dog dying, and almost dying myself due to an eating disorder, Snapchat was one of the only ways I could contact some of my friends. Snapchat was great until it completely betrayed me and now they claim, after giving me terrible assistance, (if you can even call it that) that there is nothing more they can do for me. This is your app. You should be able to fix it, or at least stop this bug so it doesn’t mess with anyone else’s life.
