Bullying Prevention Month on Snapchat
on Friday, October 19, 2018 at 7:00 AM
We've designed Snapchat to be a place where people feel comfortable expressing themselves with their close friends and family. That's why we've never had public likes or comments, because they can create pressure to feel pretty or perfect when you're just trying to communicate with friends. We've also made it easy to choose who you want to talk to on Snapchat so that you won't be bothered by unwelcome noise.
We know that despite all of that, bullies sometimes find a way to bother us, so we wanted to send the message loud and clear: bullies have no place on Snapchat. We are proud to partner with the Ad Council to support Bullying Prevention Month. We’ve created Filters, Stickers, and Snap Ads to raise awareness about bullying, whether online or off.
If you ever receive a Snap that you believe is bullying or offensive, you can easily report it to us right in the app. Just press and hold on the Snap, then tap the 🏳️ button. Let us know what’s going on — we’ll always do our best to help! You can learn more at our Safety Center.
