This is more of a question/request for team snap than anyone else, but feel free to leave your own opinions below. Before I start I want to share this from a non-biased view, I do currently have a public profile that I use to promote and spread my lenses and I am not against everyone having one.
My question/proposal to team snap is to maybe add something like an emoji or symbol that differentiates Lens Creators from regular public profiles. If those reading this don't already know, Snap is allowing anyone to create their own public profiles to post on their new "Spotlight" feature. I don't know all the requirements but I think one is 18+. These public profiles are the same as those given out to people with high view count, subscribers, and those who create lenses as of recently. While this is cool for all users to be able to showcase their profiles I believe this will cause chaos in our subscription feeds. Many of my friends have these profiles and it's hard to keep up when I have 30+ subscriptions and many get buried.
My request/suggestion is maybe to add an emoji or symbol to lens creator profiles to separate them from regular profiles that anyone can make. Maybe add some yellow border or something else so that when people view the profiles quickly they know that this user is a lens creator rather than just a normal user profile which will become very common. One suggestion for the new "Spotlight" feature is to maybe add a #snaplenses or a snap lenses channel so that lens creators can see the top trending lenses on "Spotlight".
Let me know what you all think about this
