The company stated that it hopes to help Snapchatters turn shared moments into shared memories with this next-generation Story.
Snapchat, the popular social media platform, has launched Shared Stories, a new way for Snapchatters to build community around the content they love to Snap.
Shared Stories, according to the company, is a new iteration of Custom Stories, a product that previously allowed Snapchatters to create a Story and invite friends to view and contribute to it.
“Now, with our new and improved Shared Stories, Snapchatters who have been added to the group can also add their friends, making it easier for the entire soccer team, camp squad, or group of new coworkers to get in on the fun,” the company wrote in a blog post.
“Like all of our products, we designed this feature to be safe by design,” it continued.
Snaps sent to a Shared Story, for example, are deleted after 24 hours, just like all Snapchat Stories.
There is no chat component, so all conversations are between friends, as opposed to regular friend Stories and Groups.
Content is moderated with care, utilising a combination of automatic language detection and new community review tools that enable Snapchatters to actively participate in keeping Snaps in Shared Stories safe and fun.
“We also alert Snapchatters when they join a Shared Story with someone they have blocked.”
“This allows Snapchatters to leave the Shared Story and ensures Snapchatters always have complete control over who they share content with on our platform,” the company said.
