Updated March 29, 2017 ● 553 views

Privacy Option:

You can now set your privacy to either public or private. By default, your profile is public. Go to settings to set your privacy to private. This means, your Stories will only be visible to your friends. Friends are basically people you follow and follows you back (we just don't call it add friend like in Facebook). So if you want to have friends, follow people.

If you set your privacy to private and someone wants follow you, you can either follow back or just allow user to access your stories if you don't want to follow.

Just note that posts on channels, e.g. Snapchat, are always public.

Search Changes:

You can now do search by combination of words. Before, you can only search by one word which is a #hashtag. So for example, you can now search "Justin Bieber" and it will return all posts with the word justin and bieber on the hashtags.

The search only look at the hashtags of each posts. So add an appropriate hashtag when you post. We'll continually make changes on search so that you can easily find what you're looking for.
