Snapchat for newbies

Snapchat is getting more and more popular each day. More than 161 million people are using it every day. It is a great app, but if you want to use it so you could “spy” on your favorite celebrities, you’re gonna have a problem.

Snapchat is getting more attention every day, and it’s fun filters have become a hit on the Internet. But let’s be honest. We don’t use it just to see what our friends are doing, we use it to check up on our favorite celebrities and see what new with them.

First try this!

Ok, maybe this is unnecessary to say, but just in case, we will. Check out their other social media accounts. Usually when famous people create Snapchat they advertise it with their username somewhere on their other profiles. Since this is a big problem, many sites have collected the data and created long lists of celebrity Snapchat names. Check them out.

It’s official

Open the ‘add friends’ page by swiping down from the top of the camera page. Click ‘add friends’ and type “official” to find the 20 most recent Official Stories from verified users.

Live stories

Live stories live for 24 hours on the Snapchat. Swipe left to enter the stories section. Scroll all the way down. When a search bar appears type the word “official”. When you press that search button you will see every certified account that currently has a story live. Check them out and see if you find any celebrities that you love. While the snap is playing, you’ll see their username in the top-left corner of the screen. Click on that area to see a mini-profile for that user and add them without ever having to leave the Live Story you were watching.


Ok, this is the most fun way to do this, but the slowest. You’ll never know who you may find. Instead of the word “official”, put an emoji in the search bar. Be sure you have plenty of free time before you start searching like this.
