As one of the top video and photo sharing apps available, Snapchat’s recent news release reported over 500 million snaps sent and received on a daily basis. One of the most popular features of Snapchat is the Best Friend list, which is both hated and loved equally. Users enjoy this feature due to its easy availability of exchanging snaps with folks you often snap with, and it is equally hated because it shows the Best friends list on your profile — meaning anyone can see it.
The Snapchat Best Friends List Explained
Snapchat Best Friends, or your “top list” as they’re known informally, are 3 individuals you most frequently share snaps with. The list gets updated each week, meaning that if you snap people more frequently throughout the week, they’ll show up on your Best Friends list. You can see this list when you get ready to send a new snap, as it is shown on top of the contacts list to get easy access to it. It can be seen by anyone who has you in their contacts, and it is displayed on your profile publicly.
How to Bring Up Your Contacts’ Best Friends
To see the best friends of all your contacts, simply use the following method.
· Scroll down to the name or username of the friend you want to know about
· This brings up their profile, where you can see their username and friend score.
· There, you will see lists of those users your friend snaps with most often.
· You can move your number of best friends from 3 to 5 to 7 in the settings pane.
Keep in mind that the best friends algorithm works in such a way that if someone sends you snaps regularly, but you just reply a few times, that person could be on your best friends list simply because the score gets higher every time she sends snaps. Likewise, if you regularly send a snap to someone more often than other people do, they’ll end up on your list.
How to Remove Snapchat Best Friends
Learning how to remove Snapchat best friends is a fairly simple process, but you’ll need to fully understand how the feature works in order to use it correctly. First, Snapchat has a certain score for your best friends, with the score being the number of snaps in total that you’ve received and sent. This means the score you’ll see on your profile is the total activity number you’ve accumulated since starting to use the service. Secondly, the score is measured by the conversations you’ve had between all your friends, which determines who makes it onto your best friends list.
Then, based on Snapchat’s specific algorithm for friendship, it displays the number of snaps you’ve sent between…
