Snapchat is among the best social media platforms for teenagers to make new friends. Sure, it’s also used to stay connected with your existing friends, but where’s the fun in that? In these growing years, it’s best to challenge yourself as much as possible to push yourself out of your comfort zone. It’s especially important for Gen Z kids because they commonly make themselves introverts and remain that way. But very select people are introverts by heart. Most people are extroverts, but stress, anxiety, lack of self-esteem and confidence, and reluctance to get out of their comfort zone keeps it hidden.
Think about it: it’s scientifically proven that social interactions release dopamine in our systems and human beings are extroverts by nature. You must’ve heard that man is a social animal in many places, and that’s absolutely true.
If you love talking to your friends and acquaintances and wouldn’t mind going on vacation with them for a week, you’re not an introvert. It just means that you’re only comfortable around people you think are there for you unconditionally.
But the thing is, unconditional love and support are not to be expected from everyone. You should have some abilities, and confidence in those abilities, that make you invaluable.
Anyhow, to develop confidence and learn newer concepts, it’s integral that you talk to more and more people. This is especially important for you as a teenager because that’s when most of what you learn will stick.
If online socialization is too difficult, start small. Sign up on Snapchat and keep adding people left and right on the Quick-Add section. In less than a week, you will have met at least 3-5 people you wish to talk with.
Start there, and soon you’ll look back at who you’re today happily since you took that step for yourself. Today’s blog will discuss what +1 more means on Snapchat.
What Does +1 More Mean on Snapchat?
You must’ve seen the +1 more appear on your Snapchat story viewers’ list if your Snapchat story is public. It means that someone who’s not your friend has viewed your story. It’s quite simple; if you have a public account, it’s not so out of the world for random users to check out your story.
Here’s how to make your Snapchat story private
Step 1: Launch Snapchat on your smartphone and tap on your bitmoji icon at the top left.
Step 2: Now that you’ve reached Your Profile, tap the gear icon at the top right to go to Settings.
Step 3: On the next page, scroll down to locate Privacy Control and tap View my Story.
Step 4: It must be set on Everyone; tap Friends Only, and you’re all set.
On the other hand, the Other Snapchatters list includes all those users who used to be your friends on the platform but aren’t so anymore.
The most probable reason behind this is that the user has blocked you or unfriended you. There are simple ways to verify this, so you don’t need to leave much to guesswork. We’ll also discuss how you can hide your story if you don’t wish for non-friend users to be able to see your story.
Generally, if you have an intimate Snapchat friend list, you can easily guess which one of your friends is missing. While it’s not a fun feeling, it’s best to find the answer and confront them about it immediately. The longer you try to avoid this situation, the more distant they’ll get.
Here’s how you can check if someone has blocked you on Snapchat.
Launch Snapchat on your smartphone and go to the search bar. Enter the name of the user you suspect to have blocked you. If you can’t find them anymore, it indicates that you have been blocked.
Here’s how to block someone on Snapchat
Step 1: Launch Snapchat and go to Your Chats tab.
Step 2: Locate the user you wish to block and long press on your chats with them. A pop-up menu will appear with several options; tap on Manage Friendship.
Step 3: Here, you’ll see the options to Report, Block, and Remove Friend all together! Choose whichever option will work in your situation.
Here’s how to check if you’ve been unfriended.
If you think you’ve been unfriended, there’s a simple way to check that, too! All you need is to go to their profile. If you can see their snapscore, congratulations; you’re still friends.
But if you can’t see their snapscore, we’re sorry to say that it looks like they don’t wish to be your friend anymore. At least, not on Snapchat.
A quick recap
As our blog today has reached its end, let us quickly sum up all of it for you.
Snapchat is one of those platforms that have reached popularity by providing one thing perfectly; in this case, it’s privacy. There isn’t too much of it to annoy the users, but too little, which would make users feel unsafe.
If you’ve seen the +1 more on your Snapchat viewers’ list, it simply means someone who isn’t on your friend list has seen your story. To prevent this from happening again, the simple solution would be to make your story private.
Other Snapchatters means all those users who used to be your friend but have blocked or unfriended you since they saw the story. Generally, this has nothing to do with the story’s content, so you don’t need to worry about that.
