#BAZAARGoesSocial Hot Snapchat Tips
#1. When you open the Snapchat app, it immediately takes you to the camera. You can either take a photo (hit the button once) or a video (hold the button down—you get up to 10 seconds).
#2. If you want, write a short message on your snap by clicking the image. A semi-opaque black bar will appear, on which you can type.
