‘Snapchat has just launched a new feature called the Snap Map which allows you to see your contacts on a map based on their location. Through the Snap Map, users can broadcast their exact location with everyone in their contact list.
The Snap Map can be found by pinching out from the main Snapchat camera screen.
It is important to be careful about who you share your location with. Hiding your location through Snapchat is easy:
From the home screen: click on the settings (cog) icon > click on ‘see my location’ > click on Ghost Mode
