How to Make a Public Profile on Snapchat: A Guide to Getting Started.
Snapchat is a popular social media app that lets users send pictures to one another. It has 200 million active monthly users and ranks third in the social media space. Snapchat has been called the ‘selfie-sharing app’ because it’s designed to be quick and spontaneous, but that’s not all you can do with it. You can also make your own public profile. Many people don’t know how to create a Snapchat account, so we’ve created a step by step guide for you! Check out these five steps to see how easy it is to make a public profile on Snapchat!
Making a Snapchat account
1. Download the app
First, you’ll need to download and install Snapchat on your smartphone or tablet. You can do this by visiting the App Store and looking for the Snapchat icon. Once you’ve downloaded and installed it, open it up!
2. Create your account
Snapchat has a few different options when it comes to creating an account. You’re able to sign in using your Facebook account, sign in using your phone number (if you have one), or enter in your email address and create a username.
3. Add friends
Once you’ve created your account, you’ll want to find some friends to follow! If you know someone who already uses Snapchat, you can add them by entering their username and password into the app’s ‘Add Friends’ section. Otherwise, search for people with similar interests and follow them! You can also add yourself to an existing snap group if you want to connect with people with similar interests.
Creating a public profile
1) Create an account. You can sign up for Snapchat by using your phone number or email address, or use Facebook connect to sign up.
2) Select “Add Friends” from your home screen. This will let you search for contacts who are already on Snapchat so you can add them as friends.
3) Take a photo or video of something interesting around you (or take selfies!) and tap the “Send” button at the bottom left corner of the screen. If someone sends you a snap (a picture or video), swipe right on it to open it up, which will make it disappear after viewing unless you save it with ‘My Memories’.
4) Tap the “Add Friends” button again and search
Uploading your first photo
You’ll need to have an account before you can start uploading photos. If you have a phone, you can download the app from your App Store and create an account from there or if you don’t have a phone or prefer a computer, go to Snapchat’s website and sign up.
Once you’re on the app, click “Add Friends” which is located on the right-hand side of your screen. Then select who you want to add as friends by selecting their name from your contact list or entering their username.
Next, take a photo using your camera or choose one from your album by pressing the camera icon in the bottom left corner of the screen. This will be your first photo for your profile. After this step, it’s time to enter a caption for your photo! The best caption is 20 words or less and should include some information about who is in the photo, what they’re doing and where they’re at.
If you want to send an image that spans more than one frame, hit “next” and then select “add media.” You can upload up to 10 photos per snap that way!
Before you can start using Snapchat, you need to add friends! First, open the app and tap on ‘add friends’. You will then be prompted to enter your full name or email address. Enter your information and submit. You’ll be given a list of potential matches—these are people who also use Snapchat. Tap on the person’s profile picture of someone you want to add. When they accept your request, they’ll show up in your friend list.
Sending Snaps to your friends.
Since Snapchat is an app that sends pictures, the first thing you’ll want to do is take a selfie or snap of your day. You can send this to one person at a time by selecting their name on the bottom of the screen.
