Unfortunately Snapchat Has Stopped – Keeps Crashing 2017

This article provides Snapchat troubleshooting tips and tricks.  If you’re receiving the “Unfortunately Snapchat Has Stopped” message, you’re not alone.  I have an Android and Snapchat keeps crashing.  My friends who have iPhones never seem to experience these problems.  Each time I use a filter, Snapchat freezes.  Here are some troubleshooting tips that helped me out.

Delete your Snapchat app

First, try deleting your Snapchat app and then downloading it again.  After downloading the app, restart your device.  I got so frustrated once that I decided to restore factory setting on my mobile device.  Sadly, that didn’t fix Snapchat.  Sometimes, the problems you’re experiencing are due to issues on the company’s end.

Clear Snapchat cache/data

Clearing your cached data could help Snapchat run more smoothly on your device.  This will remove all your app’s settings.  You’re starting your app from scratch.  Follow these steps to clear your cached data on your Android device:
  1. Open Settings
  2. Select Storage
  3. Select Cached Data
  4. Select OK to clear cached data
Snapchat’s performance on Android devices continues to be shaky.  If the company doesn’t fix these problems fast they’ll lose users to Instagram.

What Happened To WhatsApp? Outage, Down – Won’t Connect

WhatsApp is down.  If your WhatsApp won’t connect don’t throw your phone.  There’s currently an outage.  I can’t send or receive messages and my old conversations aren’t showing up.  The Facebook-owned messaging app is down in multiple countries, so it’s most likely the servers.  First, I couldn’t log in but now I’m logged in and can’t send or receive messages.

You can try to restart your phone if you’re desperate but that didn’t work for me.  If you’re in an area with a strong Internet connection and you can’t connect, there’s most likely no issues with your phone.  This is the first WhatsApp outage in a long time.  Facebook acquired the company in 2014 and a year later there was a major outage.

Twitter’s reaction to WhatsApp being down has been hilarious.  I couldn’t believe it when I found out and reacted like the guy in the following gif:

It’s easy to rely on instant messaging apps like WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger.  I’m on the app every day.  It makes time go faster.

Instagram: We’ll Try Again Once There’s A Better Connection

Is Instagram down? This article will provide troubleshooting tips you can use on Instagram.  I keep getting the following message when I try to upload videos: “We’ll try again once there’s a better connection.” I’m also having problems with Instagram Stories.  If you’re in an area where the Wi-Fi or cellular signal is weak, you may not be able to upload videos.

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Check the size of your video

Instagram videos can only be 60 seconds long.  The app usually crops your video when it’s longer than 60 seconds.  The minimum resolution is 1800 x 945 pixels.  If your video is within these dimensions then you have to be patient.  I am able to upload an image on Instagram but I haven’t been able to upload any new videos.

The company better fix the app’s video problems ASAP.  The Instagram vs. Snapchat battle is far from over and problems like this can be detrimental.  Social media users have short attention spans and too many choices.  I discovered 5 new features on Snapchat since Instagram has been down.  The following tweet explains that Instagram is ruining someone’s birthday!

Stevie Stephens – Facebook Live Shooting

Stevie Stephens is the Cleveland man who killed a person on Facebook Live.  He is on the run and warns that he’ll keep killing people until he’s caught.  The video showed Stephens shoot an older man to death.  Multiple media outlets have reported that Stephens chose to go on a killing spree after breaking up with his girlfriend.  He is bald with a full beard and weighs about 244 pounds.

He is armed and dangerous

If you see Stephens, contact police immediately.  He is armed and dangerous.  He was last seen wearing a blue or black and grey striped polo shirt.  It’s Easter but I would advise the residents of Cleveland to stay home.  Sadly, this isn’t the first person we’ve witnessed lose their life on Facebook Live.

He is driving a white or cream-colored SUV

Police are searching for Stephens but haven’t had any luck finding him.  He has killed one person and claims to have killed others.  The risk is that he has announced that he will continue killing people until he’s captured.  Stephens is ruining Easter and I hope the police catch him ASAP! Although the additional murders have not been confirmed, I don’t think he’s lying.

Stephens claims that he killed 15 people because of Joy Lane

Stevie Stephens decided to go on this killing rampage because he broke up with his girlfriend, Joy Lane.  The Instagram post above shows a Facebook message from Stephens.  In the message he explains that most of the bodies are behind abandoned houses in the 105 freeway area.  #PrayForCleveland

Snapchat Instagram Filter – April Fool’s Day

Snapchat’s Instagram filter is hilarious.  The image sharing app took a shot at Instagram by adding a hilarious filter for April Fool’s Day.  The filter makes your Snap look like an Instagram post.  The caption of the filter reads “my_mom and 2 others” implying that only old people still use Instagram.  Facebook recently copied Snapchat’s stories with its Direct feature and it looks like Snapchat has officially responded.

Snapchat Stories are now searchable

You can now search Snapchat Stories.  Facebook won’t stop copying the app’s features, forcing Snapchat to evolve.  Right now, Snapchat’s search tool can only be used to find accounts.  The new search tool allows users to search for Stories to watch.  How long do you think it will take Facebook to copy this feature?

WWE debuts Snapchat show

Snapchat recently teamed up with the WWE for a Snapchat Discover show.  The show launched Friday and will last until Sunday, April 2, 2017.  Snapchat is making all the right moves to keep users on the app.  Despite Snapchat’s efforts, the company won’t be able to compete with Facebook in the long-run.  Facebook is too powerful for Snapchat.

The flute player below killed it! Artists should let their fans create the visuals for their songs.  We’ve all seen enough of Future. The rapper’s video for “Mask Off” should include talented fans like the following flute player:
