How to Search Snapchat Username and Add Friends on Snapchat

Posted by Snapchat Tricks
Snapchat is one of the most popular social media messaging services available in the marker for Android and iOS devices. Unlike many messaging apps it is not possible to view other’s Snapchat profile from a web browser. Friends' profiles can only be checked out through the Snapchat application. Snapchat App is different in some ways from other messaging apps as it allows users to search or lookup friend by age, sex or even without image. Finding friends on Snapchat can be quite annoying if one is not aware of all the procedures involved in operating.  Snapchat app is so much fun to use if one knows how to use it. 

Why we normally lookup for friends?

Social networking service is a platform to build social networks or social relations among people who share interests, activities, backgrounds or real-life connections. A social network service consists of a representation of each user (often a profile). Social network sites or apps allows individuals to create a public profile, to create a list of users with whom to share connections, and view and cross the connections within the system. Most of these social network services are web-based and provide means for users to interact over the Internet, such as e-mail and instant messaging. Social network sites are varied and they incorporate new information and communication tools such as mobile connectivity, photo/video/sharing and blogging.

 Snapchat differ from other messaging Apps.

Snapchat unlike other messaging applications is a bit different from its competitors. It is quite confusing as to why Snapchat would even have a Web presence for user profiles at all as it is a
service that’s made for phone-to-phone private communication. When someone click on a friend’s name within the Snapchat app, it takes one’s out of the application to their Web profile. Even though the Snapchat official site doesn’t have a place to log-in, one can simply type in a username to see the Web profile: This means that people who are not your friends on Snapchat can even look up your profile on the web. This allows someone to look up for their friends or dear ones just by entering their twitter or Instagram handle or username, if it matches it will pop ups their profiles.

Snapchat Profile? And it’s limitations

Unlike many other social media platforms, Snapchat doesn’t have a traditional profile which is why you may not know if you have one or know what’s in it. A Snapchat profile is very limited and mainly dictated by Snapchat what is displayed. They give the user very little control on what is or is not open to your contacts and general public.

Snapchat profile includes username, display name, high score and “best friends” on Snapchat. One can edit one’s display name to display anything they want if they want to keep their identity secret on Snapchat. That is the extent of your profile, so you may be asking yourself what is the big deal?
The main controversial aspect of Snapchat is that it shows the user’s top users that you send/receive snaps from. This means that everyone can see who you interact with the most on Snapchat. However, this feature was removed in its recent updaes. This brings up privacy concerns.
