We might not admit it, but Snapchat addiction is legit. Be it the cool filters that keep adding, or the adorable emojis they have, there seems little about the social messaging app that isn’t to love. But as addicted to it as you might be, do you know the meaning of all the cute little emojis next to the names of your friends? I bet you didn’t. Here’s a list of all the icons you see and don’t know what they actually signify:
🌟 Gold Star — Someone has replayed this person’s snaps in the past 24 hours. They must have something interesting to show.
💛 Yellow Heart — You are #1 best friends with each other. You send the most snaps to this person, and they send the most snaps to you.
❤️ Red Heart — You have been #1 BFs with each other for two weeks straight.
💕 Pink Hearts — You have been #1 BFs with each other for two months straight. Dedication!
👶 Baby — You just became friends with this person.
😎 Face With Sunglasses — One of your best friends is one of their best friends. You send a lot of snaps to someone they also send a lot of snaps to.
😬 Grimacing Face — Your #1 best friend is their #1 best friend. You send the most snaps to the same person that they do. Awkward.
😏 Smirking Face — You are one of their best friends …but they are not a best friend of yours. You don’t send them many snaps, but they send you a lot.
😊 Smiling Face — Another best friend of yours. You send this person a lot of snaps. Not your #1 best friend, but they are up there.
🔥 Fire — You are on a Snapstreak! You have snapped this person every day, and they have snapped you back. Increases with the number of consecutive days.
💯 Hundred — 100 Day Snapstreak. The 100 emoji appears next to the fire when you snap back and forth with someone for one hundred days in a row.
⌛ Hourglass — Your Snapstreak is about to end. Send another snap to keep it alive.
🎂 Birthday Cake — This friend has a birthday today. Though, it is only displayed if the friend has the Birthday Party feature enabled in settings.
