What is Snapchat?
Snapchat is now among the most popular apps with hardly any youngster not knowing about it. You must have seen pictures of your friends with some pretty filters, aesthetic filters, funny filters in which the dog filter went viral and all this became a major reason for Snapchat’s popularity.
It is a bundle of numerous features like chatting, sharing what you are up to with your friends, and finding out the same about them and many others with Snapchat best friends being one of these features. Since its release, the popularity grew but the update of being able to see other’s Snapchat best friends have disliked and became a debatable issue.
Who are Snapchat’s Best Friends?
Let’s start with the most obvious question, who exactly are the friends whom Instagram categorizes as best friends? Snapchat best friends are the ones with whom you interact the most on Snapchat. Now, to interact means that you both frequently send each other snaps and it is not one-sided. So you need to often send and receive snaps from a person for him to remain as your Snapchat best friend.
For instance, if you frequently communicate with many people then for someone to become your best friend is a bit difficult but if you communicate if you interact with few people only then one can become your best friend easily and more quickly. This best friends list is updated regularly from time to time by Snapchat after regularly tracking your activity.
1. Snapchat’s an algorithm to Regulate Best Friends List
Though Snapchat always stays confidential regarding its algorithms in today’s world, we have many brilliant minds who were somehow able to determine the algorithms for deciding Snapchat best friends.
Before Snapchat changed its algorithms in 2018 the Snapchat decided on best friends based on your activity and interactions of last seven days with your friends and the top seven ones with whom you interacted the most were made your best friends.
But in 2018 Snapchat altered its algorithm and made it kind of complex by taking even your group conversations and interactions into consideration. Also, another interesting feature was added of allocating different emojis to different best friends.
How to See Your Snapchat Best Friends List?
Now let’s see how you can view who all are your Snapchat best friends. One way is by opening the chats page where you will find emoji in front of some friend’s name. These are your Snapchat’s best friends. Though you can quickly find your best friends this way they’ll not be in an orderly manner.
So you can also use this second way, which is by opening your Snapchat friends list where there will be a label of BEST FRIENDS, below which you will see the list of your best friends with an emoji in front of their names.
How to See Someone’s Snapchat Best Friends?
You must be wondering now whether you can find out who are the people in your friends’ best friends list? Well, Snapchat once had this feature where you were able to see your friend’s best friends list by holding down on their name but unfortunately or maybe fortunately it is no longer available.
Snapchat with increasing privacy concerns of its users disabled this feature and hence you can’t view it now. Now one can only view their own best friends with emojis in front of their names. There is some controversy going on whether Snapchat will again launch this feature or not.
Though this feature satisfies many users’ curiosity regarding their friends it created problems too for many users especially high profile people. Even for normal users this feature became the reason for many people being questioned on their loyalty and other stuff and strained the relationships.
So for now this feature is not available and you can’t see your friends’ Snapchat best friends.
1. Find Out Whether You Are on Someone’s Best Friends List
Well, there are few ways through which you can find out whether you are on someone’s best friends list or not. Usually when someone is on your best friends list then it is plausible that you are also on their best friends list unless you don’t use your Snapchat much and hence anyone can appear in your best friends list even if you have interacted just a few times with this person.
If this is the case, then it might be possible that they interact with other people more frequently than they do with you and hence you don’t appear in their best friends list even if they do in yours.
The next way to find out is by looking for a heart emoji in front of their name. Snapchat shows the heart emoji in front of someone’s name only when you are their Snapchat best friend. Another method is by looking for smirk face emoji in front of their name. This emoji stands for you being on their best friends list but they are not on yours.
Last but not least you can always ask your friend this question. Like you can post a story saying, “if I’m on your best friends list, snap back to this story” and this way your friends, in whom best friends list you are present can reply to your story and you’ll find it out.
Here we go, these were some of the information regarding Snapchat best friends and as told above the answer for the question: whether you can see someone’s best friends is simply no, for now, it is no longer possible to check out other people’s best friends and there is no clarity as to whether this feature will be relaunched or not. Hope this information was helpful for you.
