How Does Snapchat Best Friends Work?






April 2016 UPDATE: Snapchat has released a new version of Best Friends. Read all about the new Snapchat Best Friends here.

Snapchat's official support page tells us that Best Friends are determined by a magical friendship algorithm. We'll try to understand how this algorithm works.

If you follow Snapchat's updates as closely as I do, you'll know that in Snapchat previously measures a score for each friend in earlier versions of the app. This score is the number of snaps exchanged between the two of you.

Note: You can now swap faces on Snapchat.

And you can see this score when you visit a friend's profile.

For your best friends, the scores are listed next to their usernames on your profile. Take a look at the screenshot below. It shows the profile view of a Snapchat user on an earlier version of the app.


This feature is however not available in newer versions of Snapchat. You can no longer see or know what your best friends score is.

But this establishes one thing. And that is: there is a Snapchat Friends Score that measures the number of interactions between you and each of your friends. Read more about Snapchat best friends score here.

We know from Snapchat's official site that best friends are the people you interact with most frequently over the week. This means that the best friends feature is updated on a weekly basis. As such, it follows that the best friends scores between you and your friends are measured for a week and then reset back to zero each week after the best friends list is updated.

Whoever has the highest scores within the week make it to the best friends list. Snapchat's algorithm lists your best friends based on the scores. This is not conclusive of course; other factors may also play some role in influencing the algorithm.

Subsequently, if you want to remove people from your best friends list, it means that you should find a way to decrease the best friends score between the two of you. This is explained in my post: Delete, Remove or Hide Snapchat Best Friends.

The explanation given here on how Snapchat best friends work is just a theory though and never actually proven. But I believe it's how it works. Since Snapchat does not give an official explanation as to the mechanics of snapchat best friends, this seems to be the only plausible explanation.

Cheers.
