What is a Snapchat Score

Snapchat is one of the most leading social networking apps that is popularly used by thousands and millions of users. The amount of features Snapchat has is something everyone should know about. Just like how everyone should know about what are Snachapt scores that appear under your, and your friend’s name on Snapchat.

Snapchat is by far, the only application out of the most famous social networking applications which give its users ‘scores’ depending on their usage of the application. Now let’s see what exactly is Snapchat score and how is it achieved.

Snapchat Score

The Snapchat score for a ‘snapchatter’ as we call them, is calculated keeping in mind the number of snaps that a ‘snapchatter’ sends their friends, the number of snaps they receive from their friends, and how often and how many stories are uploaded by you on the Snapchat application. Basically, the Snapchat score shows how active you are on the application. The higher the score, the more active you are in all the things mentioned here. So if you want your Snapchat score to be more, then you better start Snapchat-ing more.

Where is Your Snapchat Score

You can find your Snapchat score right where you find all the stories that you have added and from where you can access the settings for Snapchat. Right under your name on Snapchat, you can view your current score on Snapchat.

The arrow here in the image above highlights my score for Snapchat. Eleven thousand looks like a lot to me, but trust me when I say this that there are people who have scores in millions and even more. And with the amount of their activity in Snapchat, who cannot have a score that high.

How to See Your Friends Snapchat Score

  1. When you swipe to the left on your Snapchat window, right where you see all the snaps received from your friends, the same screen where you can see the avatars for your friends, this is the screen you need to be on to view their Snapchat score.

2. To view a friends Snapchat score, simply click on their avatar and their Snapchat profile will open, showing their name and their score on Snapchat.

If they have a story displaying in place of their avatar, then this is what you need to do.

  1. Open the chat window for them on your Snapchat.

What Will Happen If You Increase Your Snapchat Score

The only information that Snapchat has handed over to the users of the application is that you as a user will receive trophies because of the score on Snapchat as well your streaks with friends. As I mentioned earlier, the more you use Snapchat, the higher the score becomes, and the more score you get, there are chances you will own more trophies on Snapchat. Other than these trophies, the possible outcome of increasing your score on Snapchat, in my opinion, would be access to special filters, or maybe some features which on people with a high score can access. This could be a good motive for people to increase their score for Snapchat.

Unlocking major trophies would be an appealing offer for a person who LOVES Snapchat. I have a friend who is a super big fan of Snapchat and her score is extremely high in comparison to my Snapchat score. I broke our streak once and she has never even started another one with me because she is very serious about those Snapchat trophies. So for a person who wants those trophies,  should definitely increase their activity on Snapchat.

With the number of changes that an Application goes through time after time, you might as well enjoy all the features for this app while it lasts. Back when Snapchat was still new, and a number of updates took place which changed a lot for the application and how it worked. Including the feature where tapping on a friends name actually made it possible to view their score. Now the process for viewing the score is slightly longer if and only if they have not put up a story.
