Snapchat is a popular social media platform that allows users to share photos and videos that disappear after a short period of time. If you’re new to Snapchat, you might be wondering how to add friends to your account. Adding friends on Snapchat is easy and can be done in a few simple steps.

First, make sure you have already created your Snapchat account. Once you have logged in, you will see a plus sign and a human icon. Tap on it to add people. You will see a list of people suggested by Snapchat. These are your mutual friends, meaning they are already added to your friends or are friends of friends.

If you want to search for someone specific, tap on the search bar and type in their name. All the people with that username or name will appear. Look for the person you want to add and make sure they are your friend. To add them, tap on the add icon next to their name.

When you add someone on Snapchat, it means you have followed them or subscribed to their public profile. If they add you back, that means you are now friends. To become friends with someone on Snapchat, both people have to add each other.

If you want to add someone using their snapcode, click on the icon and select the snapcode from your phone gallery. The snapcode is like a username or scan barcode for a Snapchat account. Once you click on it, Snapchat will automatically detect the picture and add it to your account.
