5 Surprising Things You Didn't Know About Snapchat's Best Friends List

5 Surprising Things You Didn't Know About Snapchat's Best Friends List

Snapchat can be an engaging multimedia messaging app, but managing your best friend list can be challenging. Your best friends list contains all of those with whom you frequently exchange text and images via Snapchat. Position on this list depends on their engagement with your stories and snaps; if a particular friend doesn't engage enough with your content, they could fall off your list altogether. 1. The algorithm is changing Snapchat's Best Friends list allows you to compile up to eight individuals who you consider close on the app, with no explanation as to what criteria determine who gets added or removed from this list. Snapchat has never publicly revealed their formula for selecting recipients for this honorary list. TechJunkie staffers have conducted extensive investigations and are confident that this app closely analyzes your interactions, such as Group chats and internal scoring over time. You can view your best friends ranked by score in the Discover section of the app which updates instantly when people interact with each other. Snapchat has unveiled major modifications to their Discover feature, with an emphasis on distinguishing personal content from media partners. They are also reinstating the ability to swipe up after viewing a Story to keep watching friends' updates until you decide if you want to move onto another one or not. As for how to add someone to your best friends list, sending lots of multimedia and snaps and hoping that they reply is the key to making sure they make it there. Interact with users regularly via your Discover feed or the Snap Maps for maximum exposure; in addition, blocking and unblocking will reset their score that determined them as such and give you room to add someone new in their place. 2. You can remove people from your best friends list Snapchat provides users with a feature to remove certain people from their best friend list. The algorithm recognizes this decrease in interactions and replaces them with another user - giving that person a golden emoji as recognition of this change. Use this feature if you want to reduce your presence on Snapchat, or if someone has been bothering you. To do so, open Snapchat and tap on the three-dot icon in the top right corner. Select Manage Friendships to display a list of your best friends; from here, remove any you no longer wish to keep and Snapchat will notify them accordingly. Reducing interactions is another effective method to remove someone. Given that users' rankings depend on how often they contact us through chats or snaps, decreasing interaction may help remove them from your list. Simply message less often while engaging more with other users at once. Finally, blocking users can also be an effective solution if you want to quickly get rid of someone from your list. Doing this will not only remove them from your best friends list but will also stop them from accessing your account - though you'll still be able to contact them through chat and snaps as usual. While this solution may seem drastic at first, it could work in practice. 3. You can change the order of your best friends list Snapchat remains mysterious about its algorithms, yet it's clear that their best friends lists are ordered according to frequency and consistency of communication between friends - such as streaks, multimedia exchanges and how frequently you respond to one another's stories and snaps. No matter who sits atop of your list, changing it cannot be achieved easily. One way you may be able to influence it is to send more photos or video snaps and prompt their reply so as to increase friendship ties - something which may prompt the algorithm and enable that person to become one of your top best friends. Remove someone from your list by either unfriending them or blocking them, which means they no longer appear in your best friends list, yet may still message through the app. To do this, navigate to Chat on the left side of your interface and tap their Bitmoji or profile icon before selecting either "Remove as Friend" or "Block." Your best friends list may not accurately represent real-life friendships and it may not reflect who you interact with the most on Snapchat, but it can still serve as a useful way of keeping track of who your most frequent contacts are and promoting those people higher on your list. As well as adding new people into your bubble by texting them frequently, you can also work at drawing certain people closer by sending messages multiple times daily to specific individuals. As they open and interact with these messages, the faster you'll add them to your top eight list - an effective way of showing that you care for particular friendships even if only through Snapchat. 4. You can hide your best friends list Snapchat does not officially offer any way for you to hide your Best Friends list; however, there are various methods available that could potentially remove individuals from it. The Snapchat Best Friends list is an informal ranking of your friends based on how often you chat and snap with each of them, not on any permanent basis but instead fluctuates regularly. Emojis next to each name indicate how close you are - these range from yellow heart emojis all the way through red heart emojis indicating closeness. Your Best Friends list can contain up to eight people; your Besties appear near the top of screen when choosing who to send a Snap, the Discover page, and Chat section in profile settings as well as near top when selecting who receives Snaps from you. If you want to remove someone from your list, the easiest way is usually just stopping speaking with them, which should cause them to disappear within 24 hours. Alternately, changing their emojis might help disguise that fact that you haven't spoken recently with them and make it more difficult for them to be found again. Blocking someone may also be an effective way to eliminate someone from your Best Friends list; this prevents them from seeing your messages or seeing that you have blocked them, as well as public content shared by you with them such as Snapchat stories or public photos that they might otherwise access. Unfortunately, this method requires re-adding them later; if that is acceptable to you then this might be an ideal way of distancing them. 5. You can hide your snap score If you find yourself communicating frequently but do not wish for them to remain a best friend, there are ways you can distance yourself. One is sending them less snaps: Snapchat's algorithm takes into account both quantity and quality of interactions so if your sending goes down while their interactions increase, their score may decrease and they could eventually drop out from your list altogether. Another option for protecting yourself and others on Snapchat is blocking them, which will prevent them from viewing your snap score or receiving any messages sent their way. You can do this by going into your friends list and tapping the apparition symbol next to their name. Increase their score by making them one of your best friends once more. The algorithm will consider them your BFF if they send more than a set amount of photo or video snaps; though this process could take several days it is worth giving it a shot if you want them back in your top list! Although Snapchat remains coy about their exact algorithm for creating your Best Friends List, experts have made inferences as to its general components: how often you chat with each individual as well as which friends receive the most photos or videos from you. Furthermore, Snapchat also noted that its consideration takes into account both your number of friends and your location. There can be some negative associations with having a high Snapchat score, such as being seen as an active participant on social media/texting apps or perceived to have excessive Snapchat scores. Some individuals feel like this number unfairly judges them and want to conceal it from view.
