Snapchat has become very popular with the age of social media here with us. Not only does the app let you share information with your friends but it also opens up opportunities for you to build new relationships. The idea behind Snapchat is to enable people to send each other messages, images and even video clips. The twist, however, is that these messages can only be viewed within a few seconds. Therefore, you should strive to be precise when using Snapchat for communication.
For anyone who wants to use Snapchat to send a message, an image or a clip to their crush, there are a few tips and tricks to help you send the right message in just a matter of seconds. First of all, you need to know how the app works.
Step 1: Know how Snapchat Works
Once you download the app on your device, you might want to familiarise yourself with how it works. If you want to send your crush a message, you can include an image or a video clip along with the text. If you want to add filter to an image, you can swipe right or left on the image to pick the right time, temperature and speed.
The good thing about Snapchat is that you can be able to personalise your images if you want to. With the pencil icon on the top-right part of your screen, you can draw on an image and create the best selfie for your crush. After personalising the image or clip, you can them proceed to write your text message.
Step 2: Familiarise yourself with the Emojis
Snapchat introduced a new feature to their app, emojis. These friend emojis are only visible to you. The grimace emoji indicates that you share a similar number one best friend with your crush. The smile emoji indicates the person to whom you send snaps frequently. Sunglasses would stand for you and your crush if you are on the same level.
Since you will be sending your crush a Snapchat message for the first time, you may not see the sunglasses or the smile emojis. The smirk face indicates that you don’t send snaps to a friend who sends you frequent snaps. Lastly, the fire emoji, also known as the snap streak, indicates a friend with whom you send snaps back and forth. If your first message to your crush is successful, you might be seeing the fire emoji on your Snapchat.
Extra Tip: Snapchat has made it possible for its users to add people on their friend list without even reaching out to them. If you do not want to reach out to your crush for their Snapchat details, you can simply add their number from your contact list to the app on your device. This, however, will only work if your crush has the Snapchat app on their device.
When sending a Snapchat message to your crush for the first time, make sure that you keep it simple. Do not send them provoking messages, images or clips; otherwise they will get scared away. Keeping it simple and friendly will earn you more Snapchat messages, and probably, better emojis.
