After you’ve been using Snapchat as long as I have, your friend list can get really cluttered with people you barely know and/or don’t want to talk to anymore. The good news is that you can remove friends on Snapchat, but it can be hard to keep track of who’s there and who isn’t! Here are some tips and tricks that will help you declutter your friends list without losing sanity in the process. How To Keep Your Sanity While Decluttering Your Snapchat Friend List
Step 1 – Launch the SnapApp
Table of Contents
Start by launching the SnapApp. Once you log in, you’ll see a list of all your friends that are on Snapchat. In order to remove someone from your friend list, tap the person’s name and then tap the X in the top right corner of their profile picture. Tap Delete when prompted. Repeat these steps for each person you want to delete. If there is more than one person listed, press Add Friends at the bottom of the screen after deleting everyone you want to delete and repeat these steps until they’re gone too.
Step 2 – Click on Options in the bottom right corner
This will bring up a list of your friends on the app. There is no way to filter your friend list so go ahead and swipe left or right to find the friend you want to remove. Tap on their name and then tap on ‘Block’ in the pop-up window. Remember, if you block someone they won’t be able to see any of your posts and you won’t be able to see theirs either! You can also unblock people from here by tapping on ‘Unblock’ under their name.
Step 3 – Choose who you want to remove
I suggest you have a trusted friend help you with this step. Next, scroll to the bottom of your list and tap on Add Friends. A new screen will appear where you can choose who to add. If there is someone on your list that you want to remove, it will say Remove next to their name. In the text box below, type in their username and hit the blue arrow at the bottom right of the screen.
Step 4 – Confirm your friend selection.
4. Confirm your friend selection and tap Next to save your changes.
Confirm the friends that you want to remove from your list by tapping the minus sign in front of their name. If you want to remove all friends from your list, tap the X on the top-right corner of the screen. Once all desired deletions have been made, tap Done.
Step 5 – Rejoice in cleanliness.
Now that you’ve gone through all of the steps, it’s time to rejoice in your cleanliness. You can now go back to using Snapchat without having to worry about people you don’t want to talk to. You’ll feel a sense of relief when you see the No New Friends notification on your app! As for those who are still your friends and you may want to remove them from your friend list, just tap the person’s name and then Remove from My Friends. Voila!

Snapchat is a great way to stay in touch with friends, but it can also be a little overwhelming if you have too many people on your friend list. I know when I first started using it I had about 150 people on my list and it was hard to remember who was who! Now that I’ve whittled down the number of people on my list I find that it’s actually easier for me to keep in touch with just those close friends.

How do I purge my social media?
It’s time to declutter your social media friends list. But how do you know who to delete on Facebook? It can be hard to figure out, especially if you’ve had the account for a while. If it has been over two years since the last time you interacted with them (exchanged a message or checked in), then it is safe to delete that person from your friends list. You should also consider unfollowing people or pages on Instagram if they don’t follow back and haven’t posted anything in over six months.
When should you remove someone from social media?
Here are a few good reasons to remove someone from your social media: they’re abusive, they’ve been putting you down, they’re not supportive of your goals, or they’re just not a friend anymore. It’s important to remember that you can’t make other people happy if you’re miserable. If you find yourself constantly thinking about how to get back together with them or trying to figure out how to stop liking their posts on Facebook or Instagram then it’s time for a change.
