Are you looking for ways to create and share a Snapchat quiz with your friends? You’ve come to the right place!

In this post, you’ll learn everything about Snapchat quizzes, from choosing the right questions and making a quiz, to sharing it on the platform. 

But first, let’s cover some basics. 

What is Snapchat?

Snapchat is an online messaging and social media platform that allows you to send photos and videos (called snaps) to other users. However, those snaps disappear once they’ve been viewed—you get to decide how long a snap will “live” (from 1 to 10 seconds) after it’s been seen. If you add snaps to your story, they are deleted after 24 hours.

Snapchat platform

Snapchat reaches 238 million daily active users worldwide (as of July 2020). It’s currently the most popular social network among millennials and Gen Z, ahead of Facebook and Instagram. Approximately 61% of Snapchat users are female.

Here are four reasons why young users love this platform so much:

  • Snapchat is a fun way to communicate with friends. Users can share weird, ugly pictures, and then no one has to see those pictures again. 
  • Teens can use Snapchat to share random things with captions about their days—very spontaneous, unplanned, and casual. 
  • Snapchat gives users a way to free their creativity. They can snap pictures from different angles and apply filters or lenses. 
  • Snapchat is ideal for entertainment purposes. Teenagers can share mundane and everyday conversations among close friends. They don’t have to worry about their parents reading their messages because a message disappears once the recipient reads it.

How do you ask questions on Snapchat?

There are three ways to ask a question on Snapchat: direct message, Snapchat Story, and Yolo. 

Use direct message

Snapchat lets you send disposable text messages to your friends (called Chat). You can use this option to send questions to your friends. 

When you open the Snapchat app, it goes directly to the camera screen (also the main screen). Just tap the Chat icon or swipe right on the camera screen to access the Chat screen. Then tap a friend’s name, type your question, and hit Send

Snapchat DMs

Post questions on Snapchat Story

The best thing about Snapchat Story is that it allows you to invite friends to answer your questions in a way that feels much less invasive than direct messaging.

A Snapchat Story is a collection of snaps taken within the last 24 hours. By default, your stories are visible to all of your friends, but you can limit who sees them by changing your privacy settings.  

To ask a question via Snapchat Story,  take a picture snap or a video snap. Once you capture a snap, click the T icon to add a question. You can change the text style, add stickers, emoji, and more.

Making a Snapchat quiz

Click Send and choose My Story to create a story. You can also choose to send your snap directly to a friend. When someone answers your questions, their answer with a small portion of the image (so that you know what they’re talking about) will be sent directly to you as a direct message.

Posting a Snapchat quiz

NOTE: When sharing your question, you can tag a friend in your story using text with an @ symbol. Doing so will let your friend know you’ve included them in your snap.

Share a question via Yolo

While Snapchat doesn’t have questions natively embedded into the app like Instagram, you can use a third-party app called Yolo.

Yolo is an app that allows you to post questions to your Snapchat and receive anonymous replies. The messages can come from connected friends or a wider audience—depending on your Snapchat privacy settings. 

To ask a question on Snapchat with Yolo, you need to install the Yolo app on your smartphone (Android or iOS) and sign in with your Snapchat account. Once you’re logged in to the app, tap Get anonymous messages and select to allow notifications. This is an invitation for others to ask you the questions they’ve always wanted to ask.

Posting a question with Yolo

To ask a question, just edit the default message (“send honest message”) and customize the style if you want. When you’re finished, click Share to share your question to Snapchat Story. 

Editing questions with Yolo

Now you’ll start receiving anonymous messages. You can reply to those messages inside the Yolo app.

Answering questions with Yolo

Yolo helps you communicate with many friends (even new ones) and discover what they’re thinking.

Now you know three simple ways to ask a question on Snapchat. The downside is that you can’t ask multiple questions at once. Luckily, there is another way to make this work. 

How to create a Snapchat quiz

The best and most effective way to ask several questions simultaneously on Snapchat is to create a quiz. You can do this by working with Interact—a simple, easy-to-use quiz maker that allows you to make a new quiz with as many questions as you want in minutes.

How to make your Snapchat quiz fun

Remember, photos and videos on Snapchat are temporary—they go “poof” after a while. So, to push your friends to take your quiz the moment they receive them, make sure your quiz title is fun and arouses curiosity (like “Am I addicted to Snapchat?” quiz).

Here are a couple of quiz titles that work best:

The Buddy Meter quiz

Who doesn’t want to know if they have a true friend or a fake one, right?

For example: 

  • How well do you know me?
  • Are we really best friends?
  • Are we BFF besties for life?

The “Actually” title

This title can turn a simple question into a challenge. It asks your friend to reveal a truth about themselves. 

For example: 

  • How much do you actually know about [blank]?
  • When do you actually grow up?
  • What kind of Netflix binger are you actually?

The “Celebrity” title

Celebrities have a significant influence on teens. So how about mentioning a celebrity in your quiz title to trigger their curiosity? 

For example:

  • How well do you know Taylor Swift’s boyfriends?
  • What celebrity fits your personality?
  • Are you Justin Bieber’s biggest fan?

The Personality quiz

We all like to hear good things about ourselves, and this “self-serving bias” is why personality tests work so well. This type of quiz categorizes people into personalities that compliment them based on their answers. 

For example:

  • Which Disney princess are you?
  • Which High School Musical character are you? 
  • Are you an introvert?

The Knowledge test

This is another commonly encountered type of quiz that you can find on social media. The knowledge test simply challenges your friends’ knowledge on a given topic. 

For example:

  • Can you pass this basic physics quiz?
  • Could you pass A-level math right now?
  • History quiz: Can you score 10/10?

The Comparison title 

This type of quiz compares the person taking the quiz to another person or thing, categorizes them, or helps them answer a question. 

For example: 

  • What type of food are you?
  • What type of college is best for you? 
  • What kind of flirt are you?
