At first Snapchat was the kind of thing you heard about from the younger gen and suddenly it’s got over 200 million users and celebs are ALL over it - even Beyonce. After she shared an adorable pic of her and Blue Ivy with the deer filter on her Instagram earlier this year, she sparked a worldwide search for her secret username.
Same goes for Cheryl Cole, after the new mum shared a photo featuring an angelic filter, leaving everyone second guessing whether she has Snapchat and what her username might be. The search is still on...
But there's plenty of stars out there who share 24/7 with their fans, and we can vouch that logging in for a glimpse into their world is seriously addictive.
So, first things first — how to use Snapchat?
This bit is pretty simple. Just download Snapchat (which you can search in the App Store), create a log in and go! Just click the camera icon and touch (or hold down for a video) the main circular button, then choose someone from the ‘Your Friends’ section and go. Caption optional.
How to follow celebrities on Snapchat?
It's the same as following other users. All you have to do is tap the ghost icon (that yellow and white thing) which will take you to the main screen and from here click 'Add Friends'. Type in their Username (which are often in their Instagram or Twitter profiles. They’re often just their name so guess if you’re really desperate). When it appears underneath, tap the plus icon next to the name… And you're done — you can see their stories!
