I search and search but I can’t find anything. Why can’t I find the crying effect on Instagram? Find out why and how to use it in your ‘stories’ and ‘reels’.
It’s one of the trendiest filters, it’s everywhere and everyone uses it, but you wonder why I can’t find the crying effect on Instagram. The filter that is hogging the trends lately not only on Instagram, but on all social networks, is not easy to spot, mainly because of a small detail that many did not count on.
The reason why you can’t find the crying effect among the long list of Instagram filters is precisely because it’s not an Instagram filter. This has led many users to despair while browsing the available options, but they have to turn to another social network to be able to record their videos with such an effect.
Where Is The Original Crying Effect
So where is the original crying effect? No, it’s not on TikTok either. To locate it we will have to dust off (or reinstall) Snapchat, that great forgotten one that is still alive and has managed to capture everyone’s attention again with one of the filters that has had the greatest impact among influencers and common users.
Neither TikTok, nor Instagram, nor any other application that allows recording short videos with augmented reality has so far included the crying filter, however much we see videos with it on their platforms. This has allowed many to rediscover Snapchat, if only to be able to access the trendy effect, and it remains to be seen if they will manage to retain users thanks to it.
How To Upload Stories And Reels With The Snapchat Crying Effect
Let’s get to the important thing, how to upload stories and reels with Snapchat’s crying effect. In this article we already indicated what are the steps to follow to be able to surprise our followers with these videos in which our expression will inevitably appear showing absolute sadness, although we are cracking up laughing. This allows many videos to become viral automatically thanks to the shocking contrast of emotions.
Those interested in uploading stories and reels with the crying effect on Instagram will have to create their video first on Snapchat. To do this, when we open this application we will click on the emoji with the smiley face that is to the right of the record and take pictures button to see the list of filters. At that moment we choose the filter with the sad face and place our face in the green oval on the screen. Once the filter has been applied, click on the ‘Save’ button and we will have it in our video gallery.
Now, the process of how to use the crying effect on Instagram is much simpler. We will only have to press the icon with the ‘+’ sign at the bottom center and choose the video that we have previously saved on our mobile and publish it without further ado.
Of course, if we want the video to be an absolute sensation beyond our closest circle of followers, it is advisable to use a good message and choose the most appropriate hashtags. In the case of this viral filter, we can use the alternatives #sadfilter, #cryfilter or #snapchatfilter
The advantage of having saved the video with the Snapchat crying effect will allow us not only to publish it on Instagram, but to take it to all possible social networks. Don’t miss the opportunity to accumulate followers on TikTok or to leave your family and contacts surprised on Facebook or Twitter. On LinkedIn it may not have as much of a place, but everyone sets their own boundaries on social networks.
