Snapchat is one of the top social media platforms today and is particularly popular among teenagers and young adults. The platform has several USPs (Unique Selling Points) that have gotten it where it is. The whole concept of Snapchat is entirely different from anything ever seen on the Internet. Still, in the beginning, there were several issues on the Snapchat app, which users quickly pointed out.
For example, initially, there was talk that Snapchat won’t last because of its ambiguous applications. Think about it: what would be the use of a platform where you can send images without creating any solid record of them?
You can take a snap and send it to them without saving it to your device, meaning it completely disappears from your phone unless you take a screenshot. The person on the receiving end has no way of saving it unless they take a screenshot, and you’ll be notified if they do.
Such top-notch privacy meant users could send anything to another without worrying about disclosure. And Snapchat also couldn’t say they’re monitoring the content like the website Omegle does, as it would be considered a breach of privacy.
This was a problem because if Snapchat couldn’t prove that the platform isn’t made to be used for explicit content, no online store would host it. This is what happened with websites like Omegle and OnlyFans.
However, Snapchat resolved this problem by adding several more features besides snaps and turning snaps legitimate instead of shady. They later added features that let receivers save snaps in the chat and even to their camera rolls if the senders allowed that.
There were also several data leak scandals that Snapchat was involved in. However, deeper investigation proved that it was always users who used third-party apps, employees who were then fired, and third-party hackers. Since there was no admission of guilt from the official Snapchat team, the platform’s reputation is still intact.
Anyhow, Snapchat is still running for the title of the best social media platform in the world, so stay tuned for updates!
In today’s blog, we’ll talk about whether or not it is possible to call someone on Snapchat even if they haven’t added you back as a friend. We’ll also discuss a few related topics, so stick with us until the end!
Can You Call Someone on Snapchat Who isn’t Your Friend?
Unfortunatelly, you can’t call someone on Snapchat who isn’t your friend. Users’ experience is taken seriously by Snapchat, and they have numerous security and privacy features to ensure all users have a good time on the platform.
This is why there’s very little you can do to contact someone on Snapchat unless they’ve added you back as a friend. All the snaps and chats you send to them will be pending unless their account is set so that anyone can contact them. Trust us, very few users, if any, choose to let anyone contact them, letting only their friends contact them instead.
All you can do is add them on Snapchat and hope they add you back. To verify whether or not your messages are reaching them, all you need to do is send them a snap or message. If it’s marked as pending, it’s obvious it didn’t reach them.
