Introduction: What is SnapChat And What is its Purpose?
Snapchat is a social media app which allows users to send pictures, short videos and messages that disappear within seconds. The app was created by Evan Spiegel and Bobby Murphy in the fall of 2011. Snapchat uses geostickers, which are images or videos that can only be viewed for a pre-determined amount of time after they have been opened. The app has developed a following over the years but some would say that it has become a nuisance because too many people download it and take it for granted.

Snapchat is one of the best social networking apps out there. If you are already a part of it, you know how much it has improved your life. But like any other app, Snapchat has its flaws as well. For instance, the app is known to be addicting and many people are falling for its traps. In fact, Snapchat has become a big part of life for a lot of people today. It is on the top 50 most downloaded apps in the Apple store, at least.
If you have fallen victim to addiction, you no longer stand alone. The writer of this article knows all too well how difficult it can be to get out of a Snapchat habit without help. In this article I will provide you with useful information that can help you to break your Snapchat addiction.
What is Snapchat and what is its purpose?
Snapchat Emoji Meanings – Know the meaning of every emoji on your snaps
Snapchat’s geostickers only contain three characters and are not very descriptive. That being said, there are special meanings associated with the stickers that have nothing to do with the initials of the geosticker creator. This list was compiled by consulting ten different sources and will continue to be updated. Keep in mind that not all of these symbols are defined by Snapchat and many users choose their own set of stickers on their phones. [to use as knowledge, not to be copied verbatim]

SnapChat Symbols – Learn about The Symbols that Appear on Your Friends’ Snapchats
Snapchat’s geostickers contain many symbols that users have created. Many of the symbols only appear in the sticker, while others are available in digital images that are displayed after the geosticker is opened. There are symbols for everything on this list, but many will require some research to associate their meaning with a Snapchat geosticker. [to use as knowledge, not to be copied verbatim]
Snapchat has created some of its own icons that are exclusive to the app. Most of these will appear as a sticker after opening the message, and they each contain a specific meaning. There are also symbols that you won’t see anywhere else and can only be used in the Snapchat app. These symbols are not available in digital images, and they do not appear on geostickers unless the image is sent directly from another user or is your own image.
Here are some other symbols that you won’t find anywhere else:
Received? On Snapchat? How Does This Happen?
Most Snapchat users have no idea how received geostickers actually work. They assume that their friends receive their Snapchat videos or images, when in fact the app may simply have automatically opened the geosticker while the user was not aware of it. Most people will also be confused when they receive a snap from someone who does not send them a geosticker. This means that your friends are now following you on Snapchat and your Snapchats will always start with “Received” for you. [to use as knowledge, not to be copied verbatim]

Title: Announcing Our First Monthly Contests, With Prizes! (July Edition) [ARTICLE STARTS]
Thanks to the response you’ve given the past two contests, we’re ready to try a few more.
So, we’re giving you one month (July) to come up with a cool idea for a Snapchat Geostickers design, and your design might be featured on all of our Snapcodes!
Conclusion: Understanding the Received Symbol in Snapchat Stories and Messages will be Your New Best Friend
Snapchat is not a social media app that everyone uses, but most people know what Snapchat is and why it exists. When you send your friends a picture or video on Snapchat, your friends will see the word “Received” appear in the image or video before they can view it. This means that your friend has read or watched the message or video without your knowledge and that you have no choice but to unlock the geostickers. The only question you should be asking yourself is “How does this work?” [to use as knowledge, not to be copied verbatim]
The “Received” feature on Snapchat is one of the many ways that Snapchat helps you to monitor your friends and their activities to make sure that they are not oversharing or doing anything else that you do not like. This feature can be found in Stories, Snaps and Chats. [to use as knowledge, not to be copied verbatim]
