A best friend is someone who sticks by you through thick and thin. As partners, sidekicks, and even soulmates, our best friend is someone who we go to for advice, share secrets, and even go on impromptu road trips with. They are the closest people to your heart and are akin to family, with never-ending support and encouragement.
It has been more than two months since we entered full lockdown in Malaysia, and more people are finding solace and comfort in their friendships during this trying time. According to Snap’s global Friendship study, a majority of Malaysians say they are using online channels, such as Snapchat, to communicate with friends more than they would have before the pandemic (81%). Despite social restrictions being in place, creativity is key as distance should not be a factor when it comes to appreciating and hanging out with your friends.
Here are some unique Snapchat Lenses you can try with your best friends to celebrate them in fun and creative ways. Here’s to the ones who stayed through the good and challenging times. Celebrate them in the most Snapchat-ty way and keep them reminded of how much you appreciate them. Cheers! 🥂
