Snapchat is one of the most important and most popular apps in the world, But there are incorrect information about it from content creators on Snapchat.
Lots of users want to gain the golden star.. Lots want to be verified and shown in the Explore section so that they can become more popular.
What are these incorrect information about the app?😨
I was glad to have a conversation with our friends in Snapchat, Catwoman, she has provided lots of information about this topic. Before you start watching this review, bring you coffee guys ☕ and Let’s correct some of the false information about Snapchat.
You won’t believe the number brokers who say that they can verify your social media accounts. Snapchat is one of them.
So, I decided to ask Catwoman about these brokers.
🕷 Should we pay to brokers to verify our social media accounts?
Hello, OTTO Magazin, and thank you for hosting me. Snapchat’s profile verification is one of the most popular topics about Snapchat.
We’ve added more information about this topic on our official Snapchat website. We don’t work with brokers or any third pay company to verify accounts.
Verification is for free, and it is done through a detailed process, which we’ll discuss in this review. Verification makes you a Snapstar.
🕷 What does Snapstat mean?
Snapstat is a verified account with a golden star. It means that the profile is owned by a popular person whether they’re an actor, singer, royal personnel or a politician.
They also could be an influencer or a content creator. Once you have a golden star, you’ll be able to have a public profile. This way, they’ll be able to share content with their followers.
Users can subscribe to the profile and follow it.
🕷 Does being a snapstar give you extra power?
😻 Yes, it does. Users can then check your public profile and visit it. There’s something called Highlights.
Through it, verified users can share content and pin it to there profile. They’ll also be able to get statistics about their followers.
You can check the reach and views. They’ll be able to see statistics about their followers. These statistics include from which country, city the followers are and their age.
Snapstars can also save lenses to their public profile. The followers can also use these lenses. They also have the ability to reply to their followers through the Story Replies feature.
This feature is available under every snap, and the user then can reply to replies in an organized manner. They can also quote some of the replies in a snap.
You press the quote button and make a quotation. They can also make Q without needing a third-party app. They can do it directly from the app. There’s also a Roles features, where the user can add their team to manage the public profile.
They can also grant advertisers a role so that they can see the statistics.
🕷 Can you explain the official way to verify an account?
To verify your account, you should send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, The user should send an email from the email account linked to their Snapchat account.
The application could be in English or other languages. They also should mention their phone number that’s linked to the email and the email should be verified.
The user should define themselves and ask for verification. They should include a video in the email of themselves saying that they haven’t paid money to third-party brokers. Because as I mentioned before, verification on Snapchat is for free.
After that, the team will follow up after a month because of how busy they are. The team will then decide whether to verify the account of. not, and you’ll receive an email of the decision. If not verified, the reason could be because you don’t have enough followers or your content isn’t enough to be a snap star.
We’ll then give them another chance in 6 months.
Some users object not being verified. In this case, we won’t argue with them. But some users can’t be convinced and want to become a star.
The team doesn’t interact or argue with them.
Everyone who applies for verification will get a reply. If your application isn’t accepted, then you will have a second chance in 6 months. You should be patient. It is an important topic.
Some of you say that they have lots of views, or ask how many views should I get to be eligible.
Some users ask those who have million followers are better than me or not. I’ve considered all of these questions and decided to ask them to Tony.
🕷 Catwoman, what do you advise those who want to become snapstar?
They should have enough followers. Because you can’t evaluate an account without statistics.
🕷 How can you rate someone’s popularity without numbers? What number is enough?
I can’t give you confidential information. But at least you should be a popular person. It won’t work if you ask for verification while your followers are 1k, 2k or 3K. Of course this would be impossible to do.
This is the first part. The second is that your content must be valuable. And it should be specific. It could be about lifestyle, technology, beauty, and I am here talking about influencers not popular people.
As you know, there are a lot of influencers and content creators these days. The content must have a value.
As you know, there are a lot of influencers and content creators these days. The content must have a value.
What do you offer to your followers? Are you responsible for the content you offer to your followers? Do your followers interact with you or not?
The content must be interactive. You might probably offer a great content, but your followers don’t interact with it. This means you won’t become a snapstar, because your content isn’t spreading.
🕷 I asked Catwoman if verification could be withdrawn from a verified account.
You mean the golden star to be removed?
Verified accounts have a social responsibility to their followers. Because they are under spotlight more than others. Teenagers and users are affected by these people.
You might publish a fake information or give a bad advise that might harm someone. Snapchat will warn you.
They’ll be warned not to post such information again, and some times, we delete the snap. All the community guidelines are available on the website.
These users will be warned and the snap will be deleted, but we don’t remove the gold star immediately. But after a number of warnings, the star will be removed.
🕷 Do you mean reports that some snapstars receive?
There are reports that have no basis. The team will make sure of such things before taking a step.
Everyone wants to become a star and you receive a lot of requests.
🕷 Is it harder now than 5 years ago?
Of course, because there’s a competition now. The competition has been increasing, and we can’t control it. Each user wants to make special content.
For me, content is the basis. It either makes you famous or the opposite. Users who offer valuable content will be more special than those who don’t.
🕷 Is the number of content creators around the world big?
There’s a massive number of content creators on Snapchat, whether in every where else in the world. This number is increasing, since talents are increasing.
Eventually, talents will surface.
🕷 Ok Catwoman, how much do we pay to be placed in the Explore section?🙊
This is not true at all. It is a common mistake, especially in some countries.
users who appear in the Explore section think that their account is trending, Let me explain it.
Explore has nothing to do with trending accounts. Explore work using Snapchat’s algorithms. After a while, algorithms will be able to predict you.
Explore is different from someone to another. My Explore feed could be totally different than yours.
Algorithms will be able to study your pattern after a while. For example, Faisal is interested in sports and watch sport content on Snapchat.
After a while, the Explore will show you content about sports. Also, you’ll be shown verified accounts of sport stars. Algorithms work in a random and automatic way.
🕷 Can you offer advices to users who want to appear in the Explore section?
I’ll give you some advices to help you if you’re a snap star. These advices will help, but there’s a chance that if you do all of them that you won’t appear in the Explore section. It is important to use the Snapchat camera to record your snaps.
The content shouldn’t be taken from the studio. The content should be direct and interactive, where users will interact with it. At the same time, try not to use still photos.
As you know, users interact more with videos than with photos. The videos should be long lasting not short.
🕷 Is it true that if you have 1 million users, the interaction will be better than those who have 200K followers?
Of course, but it also depends on the content itself. It is what makes users interact with your or not. Whether you have 1 million followers, 30K or 40K. Sometimes, someone who has 10K followers has more interaction than those who have 500K followers. At the end, users will interact with the valuable content.
🕷 Does adding Highlights to your account help in making your profile more popular?
😻Of course, because if someone visits your profile and doesn’t find anything in it, then they won’t follow you.
As you know, social media work is fast, and there’s new content each moment. The way users act is fast. If they don’t find something interesting, they’ll leave. Highlights is the way to attract more followers. If they like their content, they’ll follow you.
They’ll then check your other content on your profile. This will attract them and make them follow you. If you use the Android version of the app, then for sure there’s a question in your mind right now. It is the quality of the app and how it differs from the iOS version.
Snapchat users on Android now have exceeded the number of Snapchat on iPhones. It is a huge achievement for us since we’ve been heavily developing the Android version of the app. Our products and services play a role in the life of our users. And of course we’ll continue improving the app. We’ll continue improving so that users can tell their stories using the camera.
🕷 Snapchat content disappears after 24h, will this change in the future?
😻 It is up to the content creator and whether they want to add it to their public profile or not. I advise content creators to focus on the content they offer. Make content that attracts all users.
As for the disappearance of content after 24h, it is what differs Snapchat from other platforms. I think it will stay.
For the time being, I don’t have any other information. There are lots of rumors about Snapchat in many countries!
🕷 Let me summarize them with answers from Catwoman, Are there links to change passwords or activate 2FA or is it done through the official app?
😻 It is done though the official app though the settings.
🕷 If the user isn’t verified does that mean they’re not popular?
😻 It is not true. If your account is verified, then you’re already popular. That’s an excellent question.
🕷 Thank you Catwoman, Hopefully, I explained your questions in this review.
