Now you don't need to be an expert photoshopper to find out what you would look like as the opposite gender thanks to Snapchat's newest genderswap filter, which has caused an internet frenzy. The app rolled out the new mode just last week and already it has wreaked havoc from pranksters as well as made people take a second look in the mirror.

While the new filter has caused hours of amusement for some others have learned that you must proceed with caution. One guy tried to trick his girlfriend into thinking he was cheating (we don't suggest this), another guy got hundreds of matches on Tinder (self-esteem boost much?) and others realized they favor some celebrities or on the flip side maybe an aunt or uncle. Whatever the case, this is only the beginning, scroll down to see the mischief people have been getting into with these funny transformations and don't forget to upvote your favs!

Snapchat was created seven years ago by Evan Spiegel, Bobby Murphy, and Reggie Brown, who were students at Stanford University. The project was born while they were working on their final project. The app proved to be wildly successful, but according to Spiegel they first failed on almost 34 projects before arriving on Snapchat.

This would be a good idea for all men who think women are full of it when we complain about men's attitudes. Excellent social education tool

Snapchat has become a household name but originally it was coined under the name Picaboo as an iOS-only app. In 2012 Picaboo was re-branded and the name changed to Snapchat before the app was launched and made available for Android users as well.

Snapchat “stories” were developed mainly in 2013. The feature gained so much popularity that now more than 400 million Snapchat stories are posted per day! The development of stories turned into a tool utilized by brands from T.V shows, to cosmetics, to sports teams to auto companies. Hollyoaks became the first soap opera to use Stories to post teasers and exclusive content every weekday at 4 P.M
