What Does FT Mean On Snapchat?

FT most commonly stands for ‘FaceTime.’ This can feel a little counterintuitive, since it is often used on Snapchat. You might encounter this phrase in a sentence such as: ‘Wanna FT before the party?’ In other words, it is often used as an invitation to move over to a different platform together, since some find FaceTime’s video calls a better or more convenient way to talk than over Snapchat.

Other Meanings Of FT

FT can also be short for ‘featuring,’ especially if it is followed by a period. This usage of FT originated in the music world, with collaborative songs and videos featuring an additional artist to the performer of the song. However, it has become standardised terminology across the Internet, especially in Instagram captions. A person might title their post something like ‘A picnic in the park, ft. my homemade cookies’ or ‘Chaotic exam revisions, ft. my flatmates.’ This is simply a way to summarize an event or activity and what it ‘featured.’ ‘Feat.’ is also a common abbreviation of this usage of the word.

FT is also the abbreviation of the Financial Times, a well-known daily business newspaper. So, FT could also be in reference to an article from their website. For example, ‘Did you read this on FT?’

Other Snapchat Acronyms To Know
