Which social media platform is best to use for a teenager? As a parent, you might’ve wondered this more than a few times, but you must’ve looked for an answer to this question as a teenager. Well, there’s no correct answer to this question. All social media platforms have their own list of pros and cons one should consider before indulging in them. However, it’s best to use a collection of social media platforms to utilize the internet best.
Like clothes and food, always go for the best in the business in terms of social media platforms. Although Facebook is currently the top social media networking site with almost two billion monthly active users, we don’t recommend it as it has very little productive content.
For mainstream informational content, YouTube and Instagram are the preferred options. The creators and influencers on these platforms are more serious and qualified in their fields. We’re talking about cooking, fitness, education, or even hobbies.
For connecting with friends and family, Instagram and Snapchat are the sites for the job. You’ll find most people that you’re looking for on Instagram while also keeping up with your favorite celebrities and brands.
Snapchat is mostly best for friends, and its design and user interface are aesthetic and easy to navigate.
Besides friends and family, there are many more social media networking sites for different purposes. For example, if you’re an artist or just happen to love art or aesthetic pictures, you’ll love Pinterest. You can tailor the content according to your tastes initially, and it’ll remember the next time you open the app on your smartphone.
Tumblr is another niched platform that’s mostly known for its users’ dry wit and sarcasm. It’s funny, it’s aesthetic, and it’s real. You can connect with like-minded people and exchange opinions on everything from human nature to your favorite pop celebrities.
For news and professional connections, you can choose Twitter or LinkedIn, or both. These platforms will keep you on top of what’s happening around the world, along with professionally qualified opinions.
Besides these essentials, several thousand apps on the Google Play Store and App Store can help increase your productivity and organize your day. Remember to check those out if you often have trouble managing your workload or deciding what goes where in your daily routine.
In today’s blog, we’ll talk about whether or not it is possible to add someone on Snapchat without them knowing.
Is It Possible to Add Someone on Snapchat Without Them Knowing?
We’re sorry, but it isn’t possible for a user to add another as a friend on Snapchat without them finding out about it. In fact, you need the approval of the person on the other side before the two of you are officially friends on the platform.
If you’re a new user on Snapchat, you might not know about this, but when you add someone as a friend, they don’t immediately become your friend. Instead, they receive a request from your side, which they might or might not accept.
Don’t worry; they’ll surely accept your request if you know them.
Here’s how to add someone as a friend on Snapchat
Step 1: Launch Snapchat on your smartphone and log in to your account.
Step 2: The first screen you’ll see is the Snapchat camera. At the bottom of the page, there’ll be five icons.
Tap on the one to the left of the camera icon, an icon of a square chat bubble with the word Chat written next to it. This will take you to your chats on the platform.
Alternatively, you can just swipe right from the camera page to go to your chats.
Step 3: At the top left corner of the screen, right next to your Snapchat selfie, you’ll see the icon of a magnifying glass, the Snapchat search bar. Tap on it.
Step 4: Enter the username of the person you wish to add to your friend list on Snapchat and enter it.
Step 5: From the search results that appear, tap on the profile you were looking for.
Step 6: At the center of the page, you’ll see a blue Add friend button under their bitmoji. Tap on it, and your friend request is on its way!
In the end
