Hey There! Snapchat Freaks! Or should I say ‘Snapchatters’ instead? Ohh! Don’t you know what it means? Nothing to worry about! We are back with another article on Snapchat, but this time it’s about “What Does ‘Other Snapchatters’ Mean On Snapchat?” It will clear all your doubts and give you some insider info about the word and what it means.
After so many years of being in the race of the most popular social media apps, Snapchat is still evolving. However, sometimes its users stumble upon asking what emojis mean on Snapchat. It got our attention when they asked what does ‘Other Snapchatters’ mean because there are still a lot of things about the snapping app that people are unaware of. But worry not! We are here to tell you everything.
Many users have found another section on Snapchat’s story viewer page with the name “Other Snapchatters.” Now, these people can either be random unknown people or someone you know. We have given all the explanations right below.
Let’s find all the answers. Quickly go through everything, and you’ll know everything about the “Other Snapchatters” on your fav snapping app.
Meaning of “Other Snapchatters” on Snapchat Stories
“Other Snapchatters” are users who may or may not have added you, but you definitely haven’t added them. You may wonder how someone who’s not on your friend list views your Snapchat story. This means you have kept your account public.
If you want to make your Snapchat account private, then do the following steps-
- Open Snapchat.
- Click on the profile icon (on top left corner)
- Tap on the Settings icon (top right corner)
- Under the section “WHO Can …” click on “View My Story.”
- Choose “Friends Only”
You can also select the option “Custom” if you want to personalize your story viewers. This option can be used to hide your Snapchat story from users that are on your friend list.
Snapchat didn’t provide enough information on “Other Snapchatters” in the beginning, but in 2017 a user tweeted asked, “What does “other Snapchatters ” mean on story views @snapchatsupport thx.” To which Snapchat Support replied, “Hi! These are Snapchatters who you haven’t added.”
So does this mean only those people who you haven’t added are on this list? Umm…No!
The “Other Snapchatters” are-
Mutual Friends or People You Haven’t Added.
If your account is public and you see “Other Snapchatters” in your story viewers, then that means there are people whom you haven’t added, but they still view your stories.
Most probably, they are mutual friends or just random unknown people on Snapchat. It can also mean they have added you, they have sent you a request on Snapchat, but you haven’t responded.
Friends Who Removed You
This scenario can happen in both cases of private and public accounts. Suppose a friend of yours views your story and then removes you from Snapchat, then s/he will show your story viewers on the “Other Snapchatters” section.
Since that friend is no longer a ‘friend,’ it won’t be under your normal story viewers list. It will be under the “Other Snapchatters” list.
Friends Who Blocked You
The third case is that your friend has blocked you after viewing your story. That is also when this friend cannot be kept under your story viewers list; its name will be displayed under the “Other Snapchatters” section.
Know that the person (who has blocked you) will only show up in your “Other Snapchatters” list if s/he views your story before blocking you. Otherwise, their name won’t show up.
In both B and C cases, you can verify whether the person is your friend or not. After clicking on the profile icon on Snapchat, click on “My Friends” and look for that name in your friend list.
If that person was your friend earlier, then in the chat’s section, open their chat; if you see “Pending” there, then that means the person has removed you from its friend list.
How To Delete “Other Snapchatters”?
If you simply don’t want any names in your “Other Snapchatters” section, then you can block them, and their name won’t show up anymore.
Why Can’t I Click on the “Other Snapchatters” Profile?
The people who are showing up in your “Other Snapchatters” section have most probably blocked you after viewing your story. That’s why you cannot open their profile.
There are only three possible explanations. Firstly they can be unknown people who have added you, but you haven’t added them back on Snapchat. Secondly, they could be your friends who removed you after viewing your stories. Thirdly, they could be your friends or random people who blocked you after viewing your stories.
