The flame disappears 24 hours after you and your interlocutor stopped exchanging snaps. The application nevertheless warns you when your relationship is no longer all flames fire: an hourglass icon appears next to the name of your contact. Note that the snaps you send to the groups cannot bring back the flame symbol.
How does a snapchat group work ?
The operation of a group on Snapchat is different from what can be found on other social networks. Already, the person who creates the cat has less power than on other platforms. For example, it does not have the possibility of withdrawing one or more members.
Nor can she close the cat online.
The group’s creator can, on the other hand, add new members among his contacts. Just press the cat profile icon to bring up the “Add members” option. The list of contacts and perhaps some suggestions from friends is displayed, only’to choose which ones inviting to become members of the discussion group. There is another method which consists in sending invitations.
In the group settings is the “Invite via a link” option. You must then press “Invite”. The invitation link can be shared with your friends and family by a messaging application like Whatsapp.
A group on snapchat is a place of exchange, punctual or permanent, depending on the wish of the members. The group can expire and disappear on its own if no snap has been sent for 24 hours. Messages in cats with several are also deleted after 24 hours.
Members are not necessarily all friends in Snapchat. To integrate a group, you must nevertheless be invited or create a yourself.
How to find a group on Snapchat ?
To find a friend, a person or a group on Snapchat, you have to go through the search option (the magnifying glass symbol displayed on the screen). Once you have found the group that interests you, however, you cannot send a membership request. To become a member, you must be added by a cat member.
This therefore assumes that you argue it via a private message beforehand with a person who is part of the discussion group. Otherwise, you can always create your own cat.
Snapchat’s objective is to make discussions pleasant and fluid. It is for this reason that you can only become a member of a group if you are invited. If a person adds you to a cat, it is certainly because you know yourself and especially that you regularly exchange with them.
It is also for this reason that the application does not give the creator of a group of discretionary powers (withdraw a member or delete the cat) who would place him above the others.
