And now the company is turning its sights on location sharing.

According to The Verge, Snap will soon roll out the Snap Map feature to Android and iOS users of Snapchat.

Another cool aspect of the new feature is that you can see where your friends are.

As your friends share their location with you, an Actionmoji will appear on the Map notifying you of their whereabouts. So, hopefully, no background tracking going on. WFG Advisors LP bought a new position in shares of Snap during the first quarter valued at $109,000. "Spectacles are so much more fun than HoloLens or Google Glass and I think that's exactly what Bitmoji is". I loved that app - only for the leaderboard, though. Zenly is known for its tracking technology.

"It's okay to pretend that you don't understand even if you might understand a little bit get them to explain it to you to make sure they understand", Francis said. In Ocean Beach, San Diego, you can find where the local Farmer's Market is happening.


But some people are concerned about privacy and anxious about who can find out their exact location.

But other than that, or just sharing your location in general, is not something I've grown into a fan of. "Heat" colors can be seen by the users on the Snap Map to know where a bundle of Snaps is being posted.

As far as the privacy is concerned, users are in full control as to whether the location is shared with friends or not in Ghost Mode. It can give you the area, town, and street and if you zoom in enough, it shows the house on the street layout.

Snap Map also collects data of "mass snapping" events, plotting different color shades based on density, like some sort of disease outbreak map.

If the idea of people being able to see your location kind of creeps you out, then you'll be relieved to hear that the location-sharing aspect is totally optional.
