Snapchat: how to unblock a user


Snapchat is the new social phenomenon that is conquering the younger audience. Its success reached a point where Facebook tried to buy it 3 billion and even so failure. Through this application we can send messages, giving the app more than 400 million of photos sent per day (more than the Facebook application). To realize this, it is enough to see the global impact it has had (also in Spain, albeit to a lesser extent) since it began in September 2011.

Snapchat works similar to any other instant messaging app. It allows you to add a contact and send them messages in the form of photos and/or videos individually or in groups. The main difference Snapchat makes is that you select the time you want the recipient to see the message; from 1 to 10 seconds, after this time it will be automatically deleted. That is, if you send a photo and send it to a contact for, say, 5 seconds, after that time that photo will be deleted.

Snapchat is perhaps the fastest app when it comes to taking a picture with your mobile phone and sharing it, so its advantages are that it allows you to share quickly, in an ephemeral and imperfect way, since being temporary there is no obsession with the perfection that occurs in other tools such as Instagram. Even brands use Snapchat for different purposes.

Snapchat’s in-app blocker is a handy tool. We can use it to block a user, which means we don’t allow them to send or receive messages from us or see anything we share, and vice versa. That said, blocking can be useful for people who harass or don’t want to have any contact with for whatever reason.
