Snapchat is still alive and kicking with Gen Z in 2023, with 363 million daily users, according to the latest data from Statista.

While we love a good 30-second TikTok dance, sending funny or filtered photos and videos – seconds after you’ve viewed them – never gets boring.

On Snapchat, you can geofilter your location, view your astrological profile, and make your pet look like a Disney character. They even introduced a dual camera feature that lets you take Snaps, Stories, or Spotlight videos from two angles.

Fancy joining today’s youth with another slash camera social media app?

Prepare yourself: There are a lot of slang terms and acronyms floating around, and you should probably know how to use them.

Some think so, including ICL, SB, SCM, NRS, and ESB.

This could mean Follow For Follow, where a Snapchat user follows people who follow them back.

This can mean several things, but the most common meaning is probably I Can’t Lie.

However, you could see that in Christian it means love. You can take it out of the context of the post. Hopefully.

This means no answers. It is often used when you are in a situation where you cannot send repeated snaps, e.g. B. when you go to sleep, are in a bad mood or are low on data/Wi-Fi.

Perhaps one of the most common, SB simply means Snap Back – or reply to the person you snapped with.

This means Snap For Snap – or “shout for shout” – which is essentially a way to promote another Snapchat user.

OK, so that really depends on the context. SMO can mean Serious Mode On (meaning to feel or talk about something in a non-funny way).

It can also mean “Shout Me Out” (meaning you want someone to give you a shout-out on social media).

Your score basically reflects how often you have used the app. The higher the number, the more Snaps you’ve sent. How to find your snap score.

Usually SU means Swipe Up.

If you’re viewing a Snapchat story and see “SU,” swiping up usually takes you to your phone’s web browser and a web page associated with the story.

This popular acronym stands for “how you look.” But the real thing here is the context. It can be a question or a bit of a reality check.

If someone asks it as a question, they’re actually asking for a selfie.

When someone who knows what you look like says that, they’re basically saying you look like a Muppet. Do you do something unusual that makes her say it? Have you tried a new hair or makeup style?
