Introducing a new Snapchat feature.
My latest side project is the missing “Explore” section of Snapchat, releasing today.
Beyond your friends.
Finally explore Public Stories in Snapchat.
Snapchat has been built as a (very) private messaging app since the very beginning. That’s why there is neither an Explore tab within the app nor Autocomplete system when searching for a user.
But when they launched the “Story” feature — about 5 months ago, it started to change. Some people started to create really unique, “almost-live”, and mobile only content. Some of them went from creating Private to Public content.
“La Creme de la Creme” of the Stories.
Snapchat launched the “Discover” section just a month ago. A curation of editorial content shot on HD cameras and edited in professional studios.
Snapchatters™ is exactly the same with content created from Snapchatters that don’t have a social media team or an advertising budget. The very values Snapchat was built on. Authenticity, immediacy and the feeling that you have to engage with the content right now.
@evanspiegel,- Snapchat CEO mentioned something near this in the video below.
Every single Snapchatter featured on Snapchatters™ creates amazingly unperfect content. Sometimes it’s hilarious, crazy or weird. Sometimes it’s beautiful and touching. I review every single one by watching their stories during one week minimum. Once a great story stands out, it’s added to the website, simple as that.
No upvotes, no likes, no comments, no sections. For the moment, Snapchatters™ is just a simple list featuring the Snapchatters that create the best Stories. Scroll, add, scroll, add..
There’s gonna be more and more Snapchatters.
I am a Snapchat enthusiast so I’ll always be updating the website. But this is without counting on you guys. If you regularly watch Snapchatters you like, just give them a shoutout by submitting them to Snapchatters.co.
Submit your fav Snapchatters now.
Send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org to submit a Snapchatter. I review every single Snapchatter that people submit. I add them on Snapchat and watch their Stories. Anyone who stands out from the crowd will be added to Snapchatters, simple as that.
