Snapchat New Feature Allows Friends To Be Added With Personalized URL
Snapchat now has a handy URL you can use to add friends to your network easily.
One of the biggest gripes about Snapchat to date has been that it’s hard to find your friends to add, and you require a Snapcode to grow your network.
Those using the newest version of Snapchat now have an option to share their URL instead of their Snapcode to add them online. The URL appears to be simple to use, providing https://www.snapchat.com/add/USERNAME so that you can now easily add anyone, as long as you know the syntax.
To access this unique URL in the app, open Snapchat, drag the camera view, click “Add Friends,” and then click “Share Username.” Someone accessing this URL on their phone will be able to add you immediately. This becomes particularly helpful in any type of social media environment on the mobile, such as Twitter and Facebook mobile–but it doesn’t hurt to know that URL to encourage people to add you on your website or blog.
