As fun as photo-sharing app Snapchat is to use, there is still one big problem with the app: finding people to follow.
The app is a closed platform, so unless you know a specific person’s username, you’re out of luck.
To help us discover some of the best Snapchatters out there, we went straight to the source and talked to professional Snapchatter Cyrene Quiamco.
In addition to being a popular Snapchat artist herself, Quiamco is also the mastermind behind “The 11th Second,” a website devoted to showcasing top Snapchatters, ranging from comedians to artists.
When it comes to Snapchat, Quiamco is an expert.
“‘The 11th Second’ allows Snapchat creators and fans to connect, add, collaborate and discover,” Quiamco explained of her website. “There is so much awesome content being created daily with Snapchat and I wanted to show off how this community shapes and pushes the boundaries of the app.”
