VSCO Search: Photo & Video Editor on the App Store

Even though it was only launched a few years ago, VSCO (previously known as VSCO Cam) has quickly grown to become one of the most popular photography apps for both Android and iOS. In fact, the more recent versions of VSCO are much more than an app, they are something of an oasis for all like-minded users with a keen eye for great photography. In 2014, VSCO started competing with social media platforms by introducing the option of finding your friends and viewing a feed made up of what they post on their own VSCO search profiles.

Even though the app is still a lot less social than Instagram, users still get to satisfy their urge for connection. If you are an avid VSCO user with a need to connect with your friends, read on to find out how you can do it in just a few simple, easy-to-follow steps.

How Does VSCO search Work?

Before you start using the “Find My Friends” option on the VSCO app, you might be wondering how it finds your friends and where it actually searches for them. If you have a Twitter account, the VSCO app will look for your Twitter contacts who have a VSCO account linked to their Twitter username. If you opt to add friends from your contacts, the app will check any of the contacts in your phone’s address book has a VSCO account.

How to Find Friends on VSCO

Step 1

First, you need to tap on the icon in the bottom left corner of the screen that shows a circle with vertical lines over it. This will take you to your VSCO Feed

Step 2

Once you get to your Feed, you will notice an icon that looks like two smiley faces located in the upper left corner of your screen. Tap on it to proceed to the next step.

Step 3

You will see a big plus sign in the top right corner of the next screen. Tapping on it will take you to the next menu.

Step 4

In the “Find My Friends” section, you will be greeted with three options for searching for your friends.

Option 1:

Choosing “Add from Twitter” will prompt you to sign into your Twitter account (if you have one) to see a list of all your Twitter contacts that also have a VSCO account.

Option 2:

If you choose the “Add from Contacts” option, you will be asked to enter your phone number. Once you do, the VSCO app will send you an SMS with a confirmation code. Typing in the code will verify your phone number, allowing the app to sift through all the contacts in your address book and check for any VSCO accounts over there.

Option 3:

The last option involves typing in the actual, existing profile name of a friend of yours. Of course, this will only work only if you know their exact profile name.


Finding friends on the VSCO app is easy and takes only a few taps. If you opt to do it, you will have your new, personalized VSCO feed ready in just minutes. Hope this article is helpful for you and solves your problem.
