Snap Maps

By now you’ve heard reports of social media consuming people’s time and promoting anti-social behaviors. Well, Snapchat wants to combat that notion with their one of their latest updates, Snap Maps. Snap Maps allow you to see where your friends are in the world, and see the correlating photos and videos they post of what they are doing.

The user experience of turning this feature on and off is simple, so you don’t have to worry about sharing your location if you don’t want to. This is just one of many examples of Snapchat trying to differentiate itself from the competition, rather than being the exact same platform as a Facebook or an Instagram.
