According to reports from several phone networks, Snapchat was the most used social media application during the holiday period. Topping its user count above apps like Facebook and Twitter, the photo/video-sharing platform updated its caches with countless location and event-based lenses and filters for the season. Now, in honor of the year coming to a close, the app has released its list of the most popular ones from the year.
