It's not easy to know the best accounts to follow on Snapchat. This social network, which is very popular among teenagers but whose use is increasing also among adults, does not have a keywords research tool. You can currently start to follow someone only in two ways:
1) Know exactly his nickname
2) Scan his snapcode (a picture containing a unique QR code).
Online there are many good tutorials that can teach you how to use Snapchat (please see some links at the bottom of this article), so let’s talk immediately about the best aspect of this social network for those who love to travel: the content, that can take you around the world in no time in an immediate and spontaneous way.
Each user can publish live pictures or videos lasting up to 10 seconds each and this makes communication necessarily fast: effective if you are good at it, terrifying if you are not. Even 10 seconds, if misused, can seem endless!
The positive thing is that, with a single tap of the finger on the screen, you can move to the next snap, saving your time.
The platform is fun, there are filters, functions and designs that have the potential to turn every snap in joy and many users are now experiencing Snapchat’s narrative potential for the first time.
Every evening I spend one hour to look at all the snaps of the people I follow. I only do it when I am on wifi, otherwise the data usage is crazy, but in few minutes I travel all around the world: I dream and I learn.

Since Instagram Stories was introduced, we decided to differentiate our stories by language: we use Snapchat in Italian, and Instagram Stories in English. Despite we much prefer Snapchat, on Instagram we have a wider international community and we wanted to avoid boring duplicate content.
