Stay social-media savvy with Snapchat’s new “Snap Map” feature
Social media platforms tend to unveil their latest upgrades with little explanation to their users. While Snapchat has used location tracking to offer geofilters and location-specific stories for years, the company has recently released the Snap Map feature, which allows other users to track your location on a map – even down to the street address. Luckily, Snapchat is allowing users to opt-out of the feature.

It’s no secret we’re big into furry friends at the OG. If you need a pick-me-up this weekend, check out some of the winning photographs from this annual contest. With categories like “Man’s Best Friend” and “Dogs at Play,” these shots are sure to melt your heart.
Have a safe and happy weekend, everyone!
