In it's latest update, Snapchat added a major new feature called Snap Map that basically gives you a whole new interface with which you engage your friends by allowing you to share your locations and see what’s going on around each other. Plus you’ll be able to "view Snaps of sporting events, celebrations, breaking news, and more from all across the world." Here's how to get started with Snap Map:
Snapchat's Snap Map feature lets your friends see your location on a map (if you allowed them to), but sometimes you might not want everyone to know where you are, which is why there is a convenient Ghost Mode to let you go incognito for a while. You can turn on Ghost Mode by tapping the gear icon in the top right of the Snap Map screen, then toggling it on. This will hide your location until you turn it off again.
Facebook has unsuccessfully tried to copy Snapchat several times by launching a few failed apps, such as Poke and Slingshot, and today Mark Zuckerberg and team are at it again. This time instead of launching a separate app to copy Snapchat, the social media giant has just added a Snapchat-like feature to its Messenger app.
If you are new to Snapchat, one of the most popular messaging apps in the world, or just not very familiar with all of its features, you may be disappointed that on the surface it seems like you can only send photos and videos you take with the app and not ones that are already in your camera roll. Fortunately this isn't the case, it's just not that obvious how to do it. If you have the Snapchat app on your iPhone or iPad and want to send photos from your Photos app, there are two ways to do it, here's how:
The whole point of using Snapchat to send photos and videos is to make sure these messages self destruct. By default, if the recipient of a message takes a screenshot before the snap expires, the sender gets a notification alert.
Of course there are many ways to get around this, and capture a screenshot of a Snapchat message secretly.
