Snapchat Introduces New ‘Snap Map’ Feature to Share Your Location

Snapchat is basically taking a jab at Facebook with a new feature they’re calling Snap Map. Essentially, by pinching out of the main screen you’re greeted by when opening the app, you’ll find a map consisting of your friend’s locations, therefore enabling anyone to have the ability of sharing their location with all of their friends, specific buddies, or no one at all via “Ghost Mode.” This feature is similar to Facebook’s Nearby Friends feature which allows for the same type of use case.

Snapchat says they’ll only share your location if you so desire, so you won’t have to worry about the app sneaking behind your back and sharing your current position with others. To keep things a bit more secure, friends will pop up in Bitmoji form all around your map. The feature is now rolling out to both Android and iOS users.
