Snapchat has just introduced a new feature called "Snap Map" where you'll be able to know where your friends are and what they are doing. This feature will allow you to access your friends' location map through the camera tab.
This may make this feature useful for some users while embarrassing for others. However, truth be told, if you spend hours a day posting videos on Snapchat, you probably don't mind being followed by your "friends".

Snapchat tries to regain exclusivity with Snap Map
Over the past few months, Snapchat has seen the vast majority of its features be somewhat copied by other applications. For example, ephemeral videos that disappear after a certain time. Or the "virtual masks" you can apply to your videos.
Many of these features made Snapchat a unique social network. However, losing their exclusivity has had a major impact on the number of active users. Therefore, the Snapchat team hopes that the new Snap Map feature will bring back that feeling of exclusivity to its users.
With Snap Map you'll be able to see Snaps events in any "corner" of the world as long as the video has been published as public. You'll also be able to search your friends using the search tool.
As I said earlier, surely in certain situations you will not want everyone to have access to your Snaps. That's why, through application settings, you'll be able to configure Snap Map privacy.
You will be able to enter "Ghost Mode ", which will basically make you disappear from the map. You can choose to have only your friends find you on the map, or be more specific and select only certain friends.
