Snapchat Stories came to the app in 2013 and it was the first part of public use that came to Snapchat.
The feature allows you to publicly share your snaps with your wider Snapchat friends and not just the ones you direct snap.
Stories have become one of the most popular features of the app.
Once you upload a snap to ‘My Story’ this means that all of your friends on Snapchat can view the snaps you have posted to your story.
You can, however, select a few friends who you may want to hide your story from, and this means that you will still be their friend on Snapchat but they will no longer be able to see what you publicly post on your story.
You can change who is allowed to view your story by visiting the app’s settings.
Scroll down to ‘who can…’ and you will see ‘view my story…’ then select either everyone, my friends or custom.
In the custom option and click which friends you want to block from seeing your story.
To see who has viewed your story all you have to do is click on the video or picture you have uploaded to your story.
You will then see the snap, then swipe up from the bottom and a list of Snapchat friends who viewed the story will pop up.
Scroll down to see which of your Snapchat friends is most interested in your life.
You will see an eye symbol at the top of the screen which tells you at a quick glance how many of your friends have watched your story.
If you see a green screenshot symbol at the top this tells you how many people have screenshotted your story, and the number beside it will tell you how many times the snap has been screenshotted.
You can get a quick glance at how many people have viewed your story by clicking the three vertical dots beside your snap that you uploaded to my story.
To find a snap you uploaded to my story you need to open the app on the camera screen then swipe left, or click the three circles at the bottom right.
On the Stories screen, you will be able to see all of your friend’s stories – all the public snaps they have uploaded.
At the top of the list should be the snap you uploaded.
