Editors’ Choice

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.

still my go-to camera for videos

I don’t send snaps every day (I’m not that social) but I prefer it to the Camera app or iMessages for capturing & sending videos (or tiktoks) to my girlfriend or other people, even if they don’t use snapchat.

the Map is cool and underrated. you can get a peek into what people around town are up to, without having to know or befriend them. useful for following local events as they happen.

occasionally I’ll use the face lenses. I follow a creator who makes some great ones (aoepng, tho searching that name doesn’t bring them up?). the app could do a better job showing you when they upload new filters—right now you have to subscribe to the creator’s story. more focused, thoughtful lists of filters or creators handpicked by actual people (as opposed to the algorithmic FYP feed) could help with finding new filters. I also find it really frustrating that racist and borderline filters are still being let in. can Snap please pass a moratorium on all primate lenses period and maybe hire people with cultural expertise to deny filters depicting culturally specific face paint! not everything irl should be replicated as a filter and made available to anybody to put on themselves.

Banned Account for adding people to Quick

I have had Snapchat for 5 years+ in that five years I have developed a social media following I link all of my platforms together to keep in touch with all of my followers and Adam or delete them accordingly. Recently, May 2023, Snapchat decided to banned my account for adding too many people too quick, I reached out to Snapchat, and every form & fashion with no help and no responses. Not only did they banned my account, but they also linked it with my new phone so I am unable to start a new account on my new phone with Snapchat, because it was recognized. I would’ve been happy to verify and prove that it was me allowing my followers be added to Snapchat as I do with all my other platforms, but again, there’s no one to talk to at snapchat and nothing helpful. Snapchat’s customer service. Is terrible and as soon as I find another platform, I will be using it and moving all of my followers over to it.
Unless can resolve the problem and get my count back. There was no warnings no anything just shut off one day and that was it and the fact that I can’t do another account on my new phone is ridiculous There’s plenty of people are doing real community guidelines violations and yet they are still on Snapchat.
I am very unhappy with the customer service the lack of any real response that can help out with a problem .
Snapchat do better.
