As an entrepreneur, networking with potential partners, investors and influencers is critical for getting your business off the ground. While making new connections is vital, keeping your Snapchat friend list organized saves you precious time.
Entrepreneur Social Media Habits
The average Snapchat user has 175 friends on the platform. However, business networking tends to inflate your connections:
- 82% of entrepreneurs use Snapchat for their business needs
- The average Snapchat user spends 30 minutes per day on the app
As an entrepreneur, your friend list likely far exceeds the 175 average. And with only 30 minutes a day to spare, filtering irrelevant contacts becomes essential.
Why Entrepreneurs Should Regularly Unadd Snapchat Friends
Here are key reasons to keep your Snapchat tidy as a founder:
1. Eliminate Noise from Your Feed
Every moment is precious when building a company. The last thing you need is a cluttered Stories feed showing pointless Snaps from outdated connections. Pruning old contacts declutters your feed so you can efficiently catch Stories from key partners and influencers.
2. Protect Company Interests with Enhanced Privacy
Entrepreneurs share sensitive information related to their startup’s performance, partnerships, financials and growth strategies. Preserving privacy is thus critical. Removing old connections enhances privacy and reduces the chance of leaks from disgruntled ex-friends.
3. Nurture Meaningful Relationships
Running a startup means nurturing the handful of vital connections that mutually support your business goals. Trimming nostalgic yet unimportant friends enables more meaningful interactions with current partners to drive commercial success.
Steps to Quickly Remove Snapchat Friends
Between meetings, product launches and marketing campaigns, busy entrepreneurs rarely have time to painstakingly unadd each irrelevant friend. Here is how to remove Snapchat friends rapidly:
Unadding a Single Friend
When you need to cut ties with a specific connection:
- Open Friends list
- Long press their name
- Select Remove Friend
- Confirm removal
Batch Removing Multiple Friends
To mass remove swaths of contacts from conferences or networking events:
- Tap settings (gear) icon
- Toggle See Me in Quick Add off
- Tap Edit button in Friends list
- Select all friends to remove
- Tap Delete to remove them
Using Snapchat‘s Edit mode to multi-select friends for removal is perfect for entrepreneurs seeking efficiency.
Impact on the Friend You Remove
What happens from their end when you unadd them?
- They are notified of the removal
- Private chats remain visible to both parties
- They can‘t view your private Stories
- Your public content remains visible
So in summary, removing only blocks private communication channels while letting public connections persist.
As an entrepreneur with limited time to network amidst the pressures of startup chaos, I hope this guide gives you proven tips to prune your Snapchat contacts the fast way. Stay tuned for more social media advice tailored to busy founders!
