Snapchat has taken the world by storm, a new and improved way of sending instant picture messaging and ephemeral messaging application which is highly popular among young people. Snapchat has been growing rapidly, primarily due to its unique features, it has reportedly had 310 million monthly active users making it one of the most popular social media platforms in the word. There is one feature that makes Snapchat different from other messaging and photo sharing apps is that the messages or snaps disappear from the recipient’s phone after a few seconds or within the time frame set by the sender. Other features which make Snapchat different from its competitors are its Geofilters, Trophies and selfie filters which adds extra fun to its users. The recent Snapchat update (January 2016) was the addition of the White Snapchat Ghosts beside friends on the friend’s list. This has continued to be a topic of discussion for many Snapchat users and we created this post to specifically highlight these Snapchat White Ghosts and their meanings.</ br>
Like most other messaging apps, Snapchat provides users with different ways to add their friends on Snapchat and start snapping. You can add friends by Phone’s Address Book, Username, Add Nearby, Profile Link and by scanning Snapcode.
Frequent Snapchat updates bring a number of changes or features including the recently added Snapchat Ghosts displaying beside your friends, on the Added Me screen and Add Friends from an address book in the phone. There could be a bunch of different Snapchat Ghost faces next to a username in your friend’s list. So far, we have identified 14 different Snapchat Ghost faces, these are all the ghosts that show up when someone adds you.
Unlike Snapchat Emojis, these Snapchat white ghosts will frequently change and they are just random. At this moment, we cannot manually select or change the type of white ghosts to show up when your friends see it on their list.
These are automatically generated and in most cases when someone you do not know adds you on Snapchat you will either see a Snapchat Selfie Ghost or a White Ghost with a funny face. Now check out what Selfie Ghosts or White Ghosts are displaying beside your friend’s name.
How to See Snapchat Ghosts?
To see the Snapchat Ghosts, follow the below steps;
1. Open Snapchat as you normally do.
2. Click on the “Ghost” icon at the top of the camera or screen.
3. Tap on “Added Me.”

Snapchat seems to always try to gamify its app by adding certain features like Snapchat Scores, Emojis, Trophies and now Ghosts without providing a complete explanation about these.
New Snapchat updates and features always bring some confusion among the Snapchatters and turn them to flock to social networking sites and forums looking for an explanation. In this post, we will try to list all the Snapchat Ghosts or Snapchat White Ghost and their meanings (Possible).
