Snapchat is a messaging programme that allows users to text their friends and share videos with them. Snapchat is well-known for its 10-second vanishing snap function, which allows users to send messages with the goal of having them disappear after 10 seconds. Later, Snapchat introduced the stories feature, which allowed users to shoot photographs and videos in the moment and upload them to their tales for others to view.
By swiping right after adding Snapchat friends, you’ll be able to browse their tales. The more friends you have, the more stories you will be able to see. Snapchat has already undergone multiple redesigns, with Stories being one of them.
How Snapchat Stories are Ordered
Snapchat often changes the way its stories are organized, so the way they are now may not be permanent.
If you’ve been using Snapchat for a while, you’ve definitely seen how much the app has changed. Previously, their stories were presented in reverse chronological order. This means that the most current story appears at the start of Snapchat and the oldest story appears at the end.
This means that individuals who consistently publish content have an edge because their postings are always the first to show in people’s feeds. This isn’t a good way to filter through a feed since you can miss a story from someone you like because you weren’t on Snapchat at the time it was posted.
Snapchat stories are now ordered using an algorithm. This means that your feed is arranged algorithmically rather than chronologically. Snapchat prioritizes your feed based on who they feel you want to watch first, and this algorithm is based on who’s stories you watch the most, who you talk to and snap with the most, whether you’re best friends with someone, if you share best friends, and if they tag you in their story.
This makes a lot more sense since it means you can watch anyone you want to watch throughout the little time you visit Snapchat rather than who posted when you first opened it. Furthermore, algorithmically sorted feeds have historically grown social media sites like Instagram and Twitter.
