With Snapchat, you can maintain privacy and allow closest friends to see your stories. We share our stories to connect ourselves with others. By sharing stories, we actually allow others to see different parts of our lives. However, you may not want to share your stories with everyone, instead, you may want to maintain privacy and share your stories with some specific friends. Snapchat understands your needs and allows you to select your friends who can see your private story.
Why Making Private Story on Snapchat?
Making a private story on Snapchat allows you to share your story with your special friends. For instance, you can do snaps with your closest friends. While you can select friends for seeing your stories, other friends whom you have not selected will not be able to see or know about your private stories. Your private stories also appear separately from your ‘My Stories’ on an Android device. So, you can share your beautiful private moments with your dearest friends.
