People in Notts have been reacting to a new feature on Snapchat which lets you see where your friends are at any moment - and it's not been positive.

Here's what you do. First, it'll show you how to pinch and zoom in the camera tool to access the map.

Zenly, a French startup that creates a social map using Global Positioning System location to show you where your friends are hanging out, was recently acquired by Snap, according to Tech Crunch.

Snapchat also think that Snap Map could work like Twitter in a way that it would show breaking news on the app before it hits the mainstream media.

Scrolling around, you can find all your friends who are sharing their location and interact with their ActionMoji to see their Story. Confused? No worries. Here's everything you need to know about Snapchat's latest feature, called Snap Map. WFG Advisors LP bought a new stake in Snap during the first quarter valued at $109,000.

On its website, the company says users can opt to turn off sharing their location and go in ghost mode. "I understand if you're at an event and checking in, but I wouldn't want people to see where I am at all times".

The popular app, Snapchat, just updated with a new feature that may have some parents concerned.

Oilers trade Jordan Eberle to Islanders for Ryan Strome
Edmonton will play each divisional opponent four times, with the exception of the Calgary Flames, who they will face five times. Eberle is entering the fifth year of a six-year contract worth US$36 million and had been a frequent subject of trade rumours.

So if they just happen to be at the coffee shop they used to take you on hungover Saturday mornings, well, they're probably thinking of you, right?

If you fled Snapchat for Instagram Stories, a new feature might lure you back.

The application, called Snap Map, already has parents anxious.

Based on a review of LinkedIn profiles, it appears Snap has made a decision to keep the bulk of the 45-employee Zenly team in Paris.

SnapChat has come up with a new feature named Snap Map.

Snapchat announced a new addition to the app that they hope will keep users coming back. Twitter lets people add their locations to tweets, while Facebook check-ins and the "share location" Messenger function allow people to track their contacts.

Once you've opened the map, your friends will pop up in the form of their BitMoji avatars. What if you're walking by yourself and get a ping that a friend sent you a Snap message, so you read it? Teenagers don't always make wise choices in what they share on social media, and revealing their physical locations to a wide group of people could be risky. However, although the feature makes it easy for friends to find each other, several people have expressed safety concerns about Snap Map - particularly the feature's ability to pinpoint a user's exact location, down to the street address.
