How To Post Story, Delete Story, View Stories & Number Of Views Of Story On Snapchat?

Snapchat Stories is a beautiful way to share your life with your friends through a series of photos and videos. My Story presents your life in a chronological order where your recent snaps are added to the top of the Story and the older snaps are pushed back or deleted. Your Story always moves forward rather than carrying the past along with it. Unlike the recent ‘Our
Story’ feature from Snapchat, My Story is all about you.

How To Post Story, Delete Story, View Stories & Number Of Views Of Story On SnapchatAny snap added to a Story is available for twenty four hours. All the snaps added to your Story can be viewed by anyone not just once, but, multiple times unlike regular snaps that vanish in a few seconds after viewing once. Snapchat Stories is a wonderful conversational tool and many top Snapchatters are exploiting this feature to communicate more effectively with their fans.

How To Add Snapchat Snaps To A Story?

Adding snaps to your Story is pretty simple. Take a snap and optionally add filters or special text or drawings to your snap and tap on the square icon with plus at the bottom of the screen and your snap has been added to your Story. There is no limit on how many snaps you can add to a Story. Just remember that any snaps added to a Story will disappear after twenty four hours.

You can also choose who can view your Stories. To set the audience for your Stories go to Snapchat inbox -> Tap on the gear icon at the top right corner -> In the Settings page tap on ‘Who Can View My Stories’. Here you can choose to share your Stories with everyone or all your friends or just a few friends. Choose an appropriate option based on how private you want your snaps to be.

How To Delete Snapchat Snaps From Your Story?

You can delete a single snap or all the snaps from your Story. To delete a snap from your Story go to the ‘My Friends’ page and tap on your name. This shows all the snaps added to your Story. To delete a snap from the story, tap on the gear icon to the right of the snap. Now tap ‘Delete’ to remove the snap from your Story. Repeat, if you want to delete multiple snaps.

How To View A Friend’s Snapchat Story?

Go to the ‘My Friends’ page and any friend who has a circle next to their name has a Story. Just tap and hold on your friend’s name to view their Story. To skip a snap in your friend’s story just tap on the screen with another finger.

How To Know The Number Of Views Of A Snapchat Story?

The number of views of a Snapchat Story is an important metric that lets you know which Stories have performed better. This lets you better engage with your friends or fans by creating better Stories. Unfortunately, Snapchat doesn’t show the number of views of a Story. Instead, it shows the number of views of a snap and lists out all the users who have viewed a snap from your Story.

Tap on your name in the ‘My Friends’ page. The blue eye icon next to a snap tells you the number views of the snap. Tap on it to reveal the usernames of the viewers of that snap.

    I meant to save a post I put on my snapchat story but it deleted because of the 24 hours. Is there any way that I can somehow access that video?

      • Aimee March 6, 2016, 20:41

        I love how simple that reply was.

        • Anonymous January 13, 2017, 04:11

          It’s possible to see now, worked fine:


  • Sarah October 19, 2014, 10:32

    I checked who saw my story and it listed out the usernames but I realized that everytime I checked the story the same person stayed at the top of the list.

    I’m thinking
    Does this mean the person at the too viewed the snap the most amount of times?

    Thankss x

    • guest November 28, 2014, 03:43

      No it just means they were the first to view it

  • Jim Sellers December 1, 2014, 01:05

    My list of who viewed my stories disappears. In order to get back, I have to log out and log back in. It stays as long as I stay on Snapchat. If I leave and come back, I have to log in again. Any remedy?

    • Interfaither December 16, 2014, 19:30

      Same here… help anyone? o.o

    • ema December 25, 2014, 18:58

  • ltaylor February 22, 2015, 14:55

      Since the latest update, I can not see my own story, WHY?

  • Satish March 20, 2015, 04:19

    The limit of users listed that viewed your story seems to be limited to 101? After that it says + how ever many over that?

    • Christina March 29, 2015, 00:37

      I hate that it does this. I have sent several emails to snapchat support asking if there is any way to see the entire list past those 100 users with no reply.

  • Tamia March 25, 2015, 12:20

    I made a new account and now I can’t see certain peoples stories. I know they have stuff on their stories cause when I check my old account I can view their story.

    I am trying to delete my story but my name doesn’t appear on friends list! Can anyone help?

  • itsjustaubs May 19, 2015, 09:58

    Lets say i posted 3 snaps to my story. One of my friends names shows up on viewing 1 and 3 but not 2. How is that possible? Or is it just an error?

    • Kelsey September 3, 2015, 21:18

      Let’s say I post 2 snaps on my story for 10 seconds, and someone only views the second one posted later but the first one, there name doesn’t appear, does it mean they snapped through it not watching the full 10 seconds? And if someone snaps through my story not watching the full 10 seconds Does it still count their name for viewing it?

      • smforbes February 21, 2016, 12:11

        I’m having the exact same issue

  • klee June 1, 2015, 12:52

    Is there away i can create a story with the photos already in my phone?

  • Meshari June 18, 2015, 05:35

    How can i know if there anyone bloked me from watching his story??
    Not bloked or deleted me from snapchat

  • Kate June 26, 2015, 02:41

    If it shows as “opened”, but does not list a user as having viewed your story, does that mean they did not view it?

    • Arejay September 5, 2015, 04:45

      I’m having that same ordeal what’s it mean they just didn’t really view the full 10 seconds? Or just deleted it?

  • sally July 25, 2015, 14:31

    Please I want to add friends on my contact list but my contact list on snap chat is empty…but I’ve got contacts who are on snapchat

    Someone deleted me off their friends list a few months ago. I know this because I could no longer see their points or their stories. Today they happened to view my story yet it didnt notify me that they had readded me? how is this possible?

  • Drew December 15, 2015, 05:57

    Is there a way to publish an entire story with multiple snaps at the same time or does each snap you take have to be viewable right when it’s added?

  • Alex December 29, 2015, 03:00

    When you skip a snap does it count as a view for the other person ?

  • Stephanie January 2, 2016, 15:02

    Can someone see how many times u see their stories and if u snap shot a picture? If so how can u block them from seeing that?

    • Tea August 15, 2016, 09:36

      Did you find out maybe?

  • Paula April 1, 2016, 14:43

    If I customized a snapchat story so that I only allowed one person to view it- will that person know I allowed only them to view it? Or does it just look like a normal story for all to view to that one person I allowed to view it?

  • Channing May 15, 2016, 05:31
