If you don’t know already, Snapchat is one of the most popular apps for video and photo messaging. Kids use it. Adults use it. What makes it unique and fun is that the messages are set to “self-destruct” in quite the Inspector Gadget style, in a set number of seconds making it very difficult to save pictures and videos for later use. It’s great fun and useful for those of us who might send sensitive information, or just a quick and delightful message. It’s definitely not useful if you want to keep and cherish your messages and videos and pictures. But when you send them, it forces the receiver to really pay attention, and that’s what everyone really want’s, right? – a little attention. Let’s talk about the Snapchat score.
What Is Snapchat Score?
A Snapchat score is a number assigned to every Snapchat user that is a measure of how much they use Snapchat over the lifetime of having the app. It’s a common way that people can judge who uses the app more and who has sent or received more Snaps.
To check your Snapchat score or your friend’s score open the app and tap the list icon at the bottom right. From there, you will see your name at the top, tap your name to see your high score. You can tap any one of your friends to see their number as well and compare it to yours.
Snapchat Score Breakdown
There are a lot of theories out there that you get a dozen points for every Snap sent and get more for sending to your best friends, etc. I did an experiment to see how my total score changed after using Snapchat a bit.
What I found is that I got 1 point for every Snap I sent and 1 point for every Snap I received. There were no additional points for sending photos to your best friends or replying to a Snap.
Also, it appears that you do not get any points for posting a Snapchat story, so if you’re concerned about getting the highest score possible it may be good to focus on sending either pictures or videos through Snaps.
