How To Use Snapchat

Below are some screen grabs of how to get started and practice using it.

Above screen shot of my Snapchat profile. First green arrow — click on your snapchat icon and create your personal snapchat profile, with 3 snaps of you. Give it a try. Secone green arrow — Add Friends, simply add your friends here.

This is the main snapchat screen where you create your awesome snaps. You can simply snap a photo by clicking on the white circle or hold it down to create short videos, give it a try. The top Snapchat icon is to click through to your profile (as above screen shot).

The red shape with the number 4 inside is how many snaps you have to view from your friends.

The above screen shot is your stories, including your own story. You can simply send your snaps straight to your story or send them directly to your friends and individually too. This screen shot shows a Discover area of what brands are doing on Snapchat, who is LIVE and your recent friends updates.

  2. Add text to your Snapchat and move the text bar anywhere on your snap.
  3. You can draw and choose any colour on to your snaps.
  4. Click this icon to change the amount of time you want your snapchat to run for.
  5. Also if you scroll to the right on your snap you will find added features.
