The company also reminded users that they can report bullying or offensive content by pressing and holding on the Snap and tapping the flag button.
Snapchat wrote in a blog post, “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.”
