A Snapchat spokesperson said, “We’ve listened to feedback from our creator community and many of them expressed interest in having the option to show that their community on Snapchat is growing, So, starting today, we are giving creators the option to make subscriber counts visible on their public profiles…We understand not every creator wants to have public metrics visible to their fans. Therefore, creators can choose to toggle this metric on and off as needed in their settings.”
Any creator or business with a public profile can now show subscriber counts. Presently, public profiles are available to a subset of creators with established audiences. The new addition will soon be available globally over the coming months.
Well, the ability for creators to show their subscribers’ count is optional. According to the company that not every creator wants to have public metrics visible to their fans, that’s why creators are able to choose to toggle this metric on and off according to their needs.
