Snapchat is the perfect social media platform for teenagers, especially ones who get quickly overwhelmed on larger platforms such as Instagram and Twitter. We know how this can sound over-exaggerated to some people, but we’re serious here. According to a 2018 study commissioned by Snapchat that asked users how often they felt particular emotions on each platform, Snapchat inspires the most positive emotions.
Here are the emotions users feel when they use Snapchat, Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter:
Snapchat: Silly, creative, attractive
Twitter: Anxious, isolated, overwhelmed (really not a good look)
Facebook: Informed, overwhelmed, guilty
Instagram: inspired, entertained, adventurous
As you can see, Snapchat brings out the best, most fun emotions in people. Moreover, since the target audience of Snapchat is the youth (14-28-year-olds), we can safely say that it’s the best platform for teenagers.
Don’t worry; we aren’t asking you to base your entire trust on a platform just because it sounds like fun. Trust us, Snapchat has built its popularity and dependency with more than just that.
If you want to know if a snap is sent only to you or multiple people, don’t worry; we got you. Read on until the end of this blog to learn all about it!
How to Tell if Snap is Sent Only to You or Multiple People
If their picture has a caption, check out who it addresses. If it has something like “guys, y’all, you people, friends” or anything similar, it’s obvious that the snap has been sent to many people.
However, if it only seems to be addressing one person or mentions your name, it’s only you who the snap was meant for.
Ask a mutual friend
If you learned about this person through a close friend, you’re in luck. All you need to do is ask them if they received the snap you did.
However, if they didn’t receive it, it doesn’t mean no one else did, too. Maybe they just forgot to send their snap to this mutual friend. There’s also a possibility that your mutual friend saw it but forgot about it or skipped through it way too fast even to notice it.
Ask them directly
If those two methods don’t work out for you, then it seems you’re pretty much out of options.
However, there’s still one thing you could do: ask them directly. We know how it sounds, but it isn’t a big deal. Instead of asking around for something you might never get the correct answer to, just ask them point blank if that snap was only meant for you.
Doing so displays confidence, self-assurance, and integrity. Tip-toeing around people is a weak move, and it doesn’t take a genius to figure out what you’re doing. Being honest will show that you’re someone who doesn’t like playing games and waiting around.
Go for it, and if something’s really there, you’ll get the answer immediately.
In the end
As we end this blog, let us recap all we’ve discussed today.
There’s no option on Snapchat to let you know if a snap is only sent to you or multiple people. Such a feature is unnecessary and is a borderline invasion of privacy.
However, there are a couple of ways of finding out if someone sent a snap to only you. The best way to get an answer to this question is to ask the sender directly rather than beating the bushes. Trust us, honestly will get you farther than any sneaking around and tip-toeing will.
