Just tap once and you can start a conversation. Do want to see trends, events or breaking news? You can get updates for this moments you like to see too.

With Explore you can only see updates from the friends who are sharing their location with you on Snap Map.

If you have never visited Snap Map before or are in Ghost Mode today, your peeps will not be able to see your location. Sharing your location on Snap Map is opt-in.
