Snapchat new feature “Snap Maps”

Last week, Snapchat introduced a new feature call Snap Maps. This location-based map allows users to see where in the country their Snapchat contacts are, as well as seeing location-based photos and videos. The Snap Map shows a user’s Bitmoji, their cartoon avatar within Snapchat, pinpointed on a world map. Users can then zoom into the map to see the exact location of their friends.

Sharing location can be a risky thing to do, so remember to -

  • Only share your location with people you know in person. Never share your location with strangers.
  • Don’t add contacts to Snapchat if you don’t know them in person
  • Regularly review your settings (again, this applies to all social media apps) and take an active decision about whether you want people to know your location.
  • Remember you can switch this off at any time..
