How to See Your Friend’s Location on The Snap Map
Snap Map is an awesome feature from Snapchat that allows you to see snaps that are shared around the world. Another feature is the ability to see your friends location on the map. To open the snap map and see your friends location you will open the camera screen and pinch, or zoom out, on the screen, this will open the snap map. You will notice a number of orange, red, blue, and green blotches. These are areas where you can watch snaps by tapping. To see your friends on Snapchat you will want to look for their Bitmoji. Their Bitmoji will be placed on the map where that person is. The location of the Bitmoji on the Snap Map is extremely accurate. In some cases the Bitmoji will appear to be doing an activity similar to what the person is likley doing; for example shopping, driving, etc. Click the link for more information about finding your friends on Snap Map. You may find that some of your Snapchat friends are not available to be seen on the Snap Map. If this is the case they are likely in Ghost Mode. This basically means that they do not want their location to be shared on the Snap Map. Below we will discuss how you can see your friend’s location on the Snap Map even if they are in Ghost Mode.
How to See A Friend’s Location on The Snap Map When They Are in Ghost Mode
If you cannot see a friend’s Bitmoji on the Snap Map they are likely in Ghost Mode, this means that they in essence are in private mode. You may find yourself asking the question “how can I see my friend’s location on the Snap Map when they are in Ghost Mode?” The unfortunate answer to this question is that it is impossible to see someones location on the Snap Map when they are in Ghost Mode.
If you are in desperate need of knowing your friends location you can also use find my iPhone or find my friends to locate a friend with an iPhone. There may be some other third party programs that allow you to locate a friend who is in Ghose Mode but I do not recommend these as they may steal information or result in your Snapchat account being locked.
