Overview

Add a little fun to your life with Snapchat. This cool photo app is not your average social media tool. Friendships are personal and private, so you can share pics and videos with only those you share a personal bond with. Have conversations and use the “Charms” feature to discover things you have in common with each other. You can save everything and build history.

Snapchat is a great way to send a quick pic or share a story. Looking for a specific friend? Use the SnapMap to see where everyone is at. Would you rather stay invisible? Snapchat has a “ghost” mode that removes you from the map and lets you stay incognito. Turn it on and off to control when and under what conditions you use the app.

Looking to add more friends to the party? Snapchat allows group chats up to sixteen people. The app is free and compatible with all IOS and Android devices. Visit Snapchat.com for more.
