Snapchat just got a little more personal 😉
I have a feeling not all of us know what exactly “Bitmoji” is. Let me explain: Bitmoji, is a popular app that allows users to make cartoon representations of themselves that they can post to various social networks or send in text messages. You still not catching the drift? I’m sure you’ve seen your friends using something like this:
Snapchat now allows users to stick their Bitmoji characters into snaps, messages and stories, Snapchat announced in a blog post on Tuesday morning. If you’ve created a Bitmoji character already, you can link your two accounts and start right away ― otherwise, you’ll need to download the Bitmoji app and create a new avatar. It’s fun, try it out here.
We were only able to get the functionality to work on an iPhone this morning ― not our Android device. Make sure your apps are updated if you’re interested in checking the new features out, and maybe check again later if you’re having trouble.

The fusion of the two, especially considering Snapchat’s reputation as a more “personal” place to talk to your friends than Facebook, is basically the chocolate-meets-peanut-butter of social media startups.
So, go ahead and have a little fun yourself! 😜
