12 Emojis That Mean Something Totally Different In Snapchat

You might be best friends, but are you #1 Best Friends?

So, Snapchat has a feature called Friend Emojis, and you’ve probably seen most, if not all, of them next to your friends’ usernames. If you're out of the loop like me and don't know what they mean, here's a quick explainer:


5. Star 🌟

Snapchat / BuzzFeed

You or another Snapchatter has replayed that person’s snaps in the past 24 hours. Snapchat is just letting you know that whatever it is that person is snapping, it's replay-worthy.


10. Fire 🔥

Snapchat / BuzzFeed

You are on a “Snapstreak” with this person. The number next to the fire emoji indicates how many days you and that person have Snapchatted each other. You and your friend have to both send each other a snap within 24 hours to keep the streak going.
