Does 😊 Emoji Mean That You Both Are on Each Other’s Best Friend Lists on Snapchat?
If you see the smiling-face-with-smiling-eyes emoji for the first time on Snapchat next to one or more of your friends, you might get confused about what this emoji means.
Well, the 😊 emoji is among the first emojis that appear next to some of your friends on Snapchat. It appears on the Chats screen next to one of your friends and also on your Friend List.
If the 😊 emoji appears next to a friend, it does NOT mean you both are each other’s best friends on Snapchat.
Instead, it just means that they are your best friends. This means you send a lot of snaps to this friend. Now, a lot of snaps might not mean the most snaps. Rather, it only means that you send more snaps to this person than you do to most other friends.
However, the appearance of this emoji doesn’t necessarily mean that you are also one of their best friends. They might send more snaps to other friends (their friends) than they send to you, and this emoji might not appear beside your name on their account.
The 😊 emoji is just one of the many friend emojis you might find next to your friends’ names on the chat screen or your friend list. Keep reading to know more about these emojis.
Snapchat Friend Emojis 101: All you need to know
Snapchat has a wide collection of emojis, each appearing for a different reason. These emojis are called friend emojis or friendship emojis because the various things the emojis stand for concern your friends.
These emojis can not only tell you about your best friends and denote other fun things like besties, mutual besties, and BFFs. You don’t need to be confused or overwhelmed; we will tell you all about this in the next few lines. Here’s a list of all the emojis you might see on Snapchat:
Best Friends: 😊
We just talked about this one, didn’t we? When you see this emoji next to a friend’s name on the Chats page, it means you send a lot of snaps (not messages) to this person, due to which Snapchat thinks that they are your best friend.
There’s great news if you see this emoticon next to a friend on Snapchat! You both are the #1 best friends of each other. Yes, #1 best friends! This means you send the most number of snaps to this friend, and they send the most number of snaps to you.
In other words, you are snapping with each other more than you do with any other friend. You two get along really well! If you find this emoji next to a friend’s name, they can also see it next to your name.
This is a milestone emoji for best friends. If the Besties emoji appears continuously for two weeks straight, it changes into a red heart emoji. In other words, if you both have been each other’s #1 best friends for 14 days at a stretch, you both will see this emoji next to each other’s names.
Super BFFs: 💕
This is another milestone, but way more serious and VERY rare. You might not see this emoji so easily next to any friend’s name.
