We all get into social media, many apps like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube and others help us digitally get along with friends.


But Snapchat is something in ways that no other app can help you connect with friends in certain manners.

The Top Ten

1 You can chat with almost as many people as you want

Social Media usually limits the number of people to a medium amount, but Snapchat can let you chat with almost everyone, including celebrities and even Olympic Swimmers, maybe even presidents.


Sites like Twitter just let you post stuff to nowhere and let everyone see them, but sites like Snapchat can let you chat to your friends and there's even a privacy policy modification that lets only your friends see your snapchats. - nelsonerica

No? I really don't see what you're going for here. You can talk to anyone on all social media. - coonh8er

2 You can video chat with friends

Believe it or not, Snapchat is the Social Media app where you can video chat with people, such as your friends, and even celebrities.


They can see you and capture your emotions and skills a way no other social media app will ever do.


You might need practice, as it requires touching the video, but after time, you can be a pro at it.



You'll almost never get tired of it, and you'll want to keep making friends. - nelsonerica

3 You can see where your friends are at and what they're doing

Unlike other Social Media apps, you can see where someone is at and what he/she is doing and where he/she will go.


Most Social Media apps don't let that happen, Thanks to Snapchat. - nelsonerica

4 You can instant message your friends as the prime reason

While Social Media involves instant messaging, Snapchat has an instant messaging system unlike that of many other apps, and it's one of the prime things you do on Snapchat. - nelsonerica

5 It's free

Most sites cost money, so you have to pay, but some like Snapchat are free, so there's no cost or paying. - nelsonerica

That's just not true, you don't have to pay for anything on other social media websites/apps. - coonh8er

6 You can change the privacy policy settings

You can do this with pretty much every social media website. - IronSabbathPriest

While most Social Media apps only let you post things in public, viewed around the world.


Snapchat's Privacy Policy settings can be modified so that only your friends can see your photos, videos, messages, and video chats, there are some certain things you may only want to keep private. - nelsonerica

7 It has filters

Unlike other Social Media Apps, Snapchat has special effect filters that overlay your videos and photos, you can look like almost anything you want, you can make your friends laugh with the filters. - nelsonerica

8 It helps you plan things

With other Social Media apps, you aren't very likely to plan things that you might want, but with Snapchat, you can do it without problems. - nelsonerica

9 You don't need to scroll a long way down just to look for your favorite post

Many Social Media apps have an order of posts, so you'd have to scroll a long way just to go back to your favorite posts, but on Snapchat, you don't need to, they just get sent and disappear after 10 seconds, though some people may take screenshots before they disappear, so be careful. - nelsonerica

10 Only people you send it to can see it

The Contenders

11 Its header is colorful

Most Social Media apps use generic headers, but Snapchat uses a bright and colorful yellow header, and a white ghost that makes it fancy, which no other Social Media app can do. - nelsonerica
