It’s hard to make friends when you’re new to class. We have all been there.

It can seem just as challenging trying to make friends when you’re new to the social media platform, especially Snapchat.

Compared to platforms like Instagram and Facebook, where you can search for friends using tags, keywords, and phrases, Snapchat is different.

Here’s the question: is it still possible to find friends (old and new) from Snapchat to follow? The answer is yes.

But first, let’s quickly look at why Snapchat itself can be even more influential than you think.

Why is Snapchat important?

Clear 5 million clicks are sent on average every day. This figure becomes a little less surprising given that more than 75% of U.S. 13- to 34-year-olds use Snapchat.

Even if you’re a new Snapchat user, you’ve probably had other social media accounts in the past. Maybe even a few. It’s time to take advantage of people you’ve already reached.

Telling others about your personal Snapcode can be a great way to make more Snapchat friends. Let others come to you. Here’s how to do it.

Update your profile

No one wants to be friends with an unknown user. Add your personality to your username. Upload a picture to your profile if you really want your new friends to add you back.

Post your Snapcode to social media

This can be one of the best ways to make new friends on Snapchat. Advertise, advertise and promote yourself even more.

You always have to approve friend requests first, so it’s still possible to split your buddy list into people you really want to follow.
