Do you want to share your snaps with a larger audience than your friends? If so, then How to Make a Public Profile on Snapchat is for you! Creating a public profile allows you to share your snap with the world. Once you do this, people can search for your username and see all of your snaps. Note that making your profile public will make all of your snaps visible to everyone; not just people who add you as a friend! If this is not what you wish, please read on to learn how to change it back. Let’s get started!
So to create a public profile and Snapchat, the first thing we need to do is simply open up the Snapchat app on our iPhone or Android phone.
Once you’ve done that, go up to the top left and select your avatar. Once we’ve opened this, scroll down and you should see Public Profile. Now just below that you’ll see Create Public Profile and it says New.
Go ahead and select New. As you can see here, it just says that our name will be displayed on any snaps we send to our Spotlight or Snap maps and that people that view those can then subscribe to our account, which is exactly what we want to go ahead and select Continue and then get started.
This basically says the same thing, but also says you can delete your public profile at any time. Go ahead and select Create. So once we’ve done that, our public profile has been created, but nothing has been added to it yet.
So on our profile here, we just need to go down back to Public Profile and select my Public Profile. When we first get here, the first thing we need to do is select Edit Profile.
And then in here we can add some things to our profile so people can identify who we are. So at the top we can select the empty avatar and then you can upload an image from your camera roll and have that be your profile similar to what you would do on Instagram, Facebook or something like that. So I’ll select an image and then I can select Save Changes. Then below that in Profile Information, we can add a bio which is limited to 150 characters. And then below that we can add a location so you can break it down by city, state and country.
And keep in mind, this is public information on your profile. After that we can show our subscriber count. Keep in mind if you have less than 5000 subscribers and it will just show less than 5000. All right, so once we’ve made the changes to our profile information, we can select Preview Profile and then it will give us an example of what that looks like. As you can see right under my profile image, it has my location and then my Bio.
So now we can select back. Once you’re back to your profile here, you can select Stories or Spotlight at the bottom to add snaps to those items so that they’re available on your public profile. All right, so that’s how you make a public profile on Snapchat. If you have any questions about this, leave a comment below. I’ll get back to you as soon as I can.
