Top 10 Reasons Snapchat is Better Than Other Social Media Apps

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 different. No other app can help you connect with friends like Snapchat.
The Top Ten
1 You can chat with almost as many people as you want

Social media usually limits the number of people you can connect with to a medium amount. However, Snapchat allows you to chat with almost everyone, including celebrities and even Olympic swimmers, maybe even presidents.

Sites like Twitter just let you post content into the void, allowing everyone to see them. In contrast, platforms like Snapchat enable you to chat with your friends. There's even a privacy policy modification that ensures only your friends can see your Snapchats.

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 in a way no other social media app can.

It might require some practice, as initiating a video chat involves touching the video. Over time, you can become proficient at it. You'll almost never tire of it, and you'll want to keep making friends.

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

Unlike other social media apps, Snapchat allows you to see where someone is and what they are doing, and where they will go next. Most social media apps don't offer this feature. Thanks to Snapchat.

4 You can instant message your friends as the prime reason

While social media involves instant messaging, Snapchat's instant messaging system is unlike that of many other apps. This makes it one of the primary features of Snapchat.

5 It's free

Most platforms require a subscription, so you have to pay. However, some, like Snapchat, are free, so there's no cost involved.

6 You can change the privacy policy settings

While most social media apps only allow you to post things publicly, viewed around the world, Snapchat's privacy policy settings can be modified. This means only your friends can see your photos, videos, messages, and video chats. There are certain things you may want to keep private.

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. This makes your friends laugh with the filters.

8 It helps you plan things

With other social media apps, planning events or activities might not be very straightforward. However, with Snapchat, you can do it without problems.

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

Many social media apps organize posts in a linear order. This means you'd have to scroll a long way to return to your favorite posts. However, on Snapchat, you don't need to.

Posts are sent and disappear after 10 seconds. Some people may take screenshots before they disappear, so be cautious.
