Understanding emojis (to become a Snapchat pro)

One of Snapchat’s many quirks is the list of emojis it places next to your friends’ names.

Ranging from baby face to grimace, it turns out these emojis aren’t random: they can actually tell you a lot about your relationships on Snapchat.

Here’s what they mean:

  • 💛  Gold Heart: You are best friends with this person on Snapchat – aka you both send the most snaps to each other.
  • ❤️ Red Heart: You both have been each other’s best friend on Snapchat for at least 2 weeks.
  • 💕  Pink Hearts: You both have been each other’s best friend on Snapchat for at least 2 months.
  • 😬  Grimace: It means that you share a best friend with the someone. So their best friend is the same as your best friend.
  • 😊  Smile: This means that the person is one of the people you message on Snapchat most frequently.
  • 😎  Sunglasses: It usually means that you’re running in the same friend group.
  • 😏  Smirk: This indicates a one-way relationship, and you’re the taker. This person sends you enough snaps to make you one of their best friends, but you don’t send them many snaps back.
  • 🔥  Fire: The infamous Snapstreak. This appears next to the numbers of days that you and a friend have snapped each other – but if you and your friend don’t both send a Snap within 24 hours, you will lose your Snapstreaks.
  • 👶  Baby: You just became Snapchat friends.
  • 🎂  Birthday Cake: It’s this person’s birthday on Snapchat.
