This wikiHow teaches you how to view Snapchat Stories, which are snapshots your friends post to their Snapchat profiles, as well as your own stories. Snapchat stories are visible for 24 hours after they are posted. If you'd rather see what random Snapchat users and sponsors post in their stories, you can also check out public stories.
