In addition to other problems of communicating with people you don’t know, it is difficult to guess whether a person is willing to chat with you.
Both guys and girls often suffer from this kind of problem.
Tapping anywhere before you snap a picture brings up the filter menu, which lets you do cool augmented reality overlays on whatever you’re looking at.
Once you have your picture or video, you get a new set of options.
The main screen of Snapchat is surprisingly simple.
Ignoring the various icons that mostly serve to notify you that something interesting is happening elsewhere, and it’s a pretty simple camera app.
And now, five years in, with the addition of more and more new features and several redesigns, using the ephemeral messaging app can still be confusing if you don’t already know where everything is and what it does.
Remember, snaps sent to individuals will disappear after they’re viewed, but snaps in your Story are visible to anyone you’re friends with on Snapchat for 24 hours from when you post it.
Swipe to the right, and you’ll get to the Stories screen.
The scissor icon lets you cut out something from your picture to save as a sticker for adorning future snaps.
And the timer allows you to choose how long the image will exist when sent to friends.
It is a good idea to always show some enthusiasm so that you are taken seriously.
