You first have to acknowledge this fact before moving further ahead with this Social app. The reason that Snapchat gets more users from millennials is the fact that it is not that open to mainstream users. Millennials do not want to be active in a social platform that also have all their relatives, parents and grandparents. So, if you understand this, you would be more practical in how you can grow your Snapchat friends list. Here are 5 steps on how you can get Snapchat friends fast. STEP 1 – FILL YOUR SNAPCHAT PROFILE DETAILS Before you even start to invite friends, make sure you have a proper Snapchat account. Fill up your ghost icon with your picture. Get your own unique Snapcode. Read here on how you can create your own Snapcode. People do not want to add someone where profile looks like a ghost town. Try also to have a snapchat username that people can instantly remember and relates back to you. STEP 2 – BUILD FRIENDS LIST BY ADDING CLOSE CONTACT This is basically the foundation of how Snapchat is designed and created. You create goofy pictures of yourself and some fun stickers to it. Then you send to your closest friends for their reaction. Rarely will people be comfortable in sharing that kind of picture to total stranger. And the best thing with Snapchat, that goofy picture of yourself will disappear in 24 hours. So, you do not have to worry on posting something on the internet and it come back to haunt you when you are interviewing for a job. And that is also why Facebook and Instagram decided to incorporate the same features in their platform. So, the very first thing you should do once you open a Snapchat account is to add friends using your phone’s contact. Here are the steps. After adding them, just send them a snap and ask them to add you as friend. STEP 3 – PROMOTE YOUR SNAPCHAT ACCOUNT AT OTHER SOCIAL PLATFORM This is one of easiest way you can instantly increase your Snapchat friends list. You can either share your Snapchat username or your snapcode to your Facebook friends or Instagram friends. There is no harm in asking.

You will be surprise that maybe some of your friends may also want to increase their friends list in their Snapchat account but a bit too shy to ask in public. The good about Facebook and Instagram is the share button. So, if your friends do not have a snapchat account, ask your friend to share your post to their other friends who have a Snapchat account. STEP 4 – SUBMIT YOUR SNAPCHAT USERNAME AT PUBLIC DIRECTORIES So, you have exhausted your close circle friends list, your Facebook friends but still not getting the number of Snapchat friends that you wanted.
