Snapchat streaks are one of the most fun aspects of the platform. Although it has tough competitors like bitmojis and the Spotlight tab that are great at entertaining users, they don’t hold a candle to streaks. Streaks have users, as Gen Z would say, “screaming crying and throwing up.” Some users would argue that Snapchat is slowly becoming the unhealthiest obsession of this generation, but we’d have to disagree.
Streaks might not be the most productive activity for teenagers, but it’s also not as negative as some users make it out to be. One can say that it’s a neutral concept in itself, and it’s up to how a user decides to use it.
We all know that it is by our own choice that we get consumed by anything. As long as people see streaks for what they are, which is just a fun game to play with close friends, it’s not a big deal. In fact, people can also choose to indulge in a little friendly competition as to who has the longest streak.
But the key component is the self-control they exercise on themselves. As a general rule of thumb, opening Snapchat once daily to maintain your streak and check out what your friends are up to is enough. Ten minutes in the morning, you can forget about it and focus on different things.
If you’re one of those people who find it difficult to restrain themselves, that’s quite alright. Although it is something you should actively be working on, you can turn towards alternative options for the time being. An accountability partner is one of the best ways to give up a bad habit.
So, if you have a bad habit, don’t worry; just break it and move on! Today’s blog will discuss what “Streaks don’t SB” means on Snapchat.
What Does “Streaks Don’t SB” Mean on Snapchat?
So, what does it mean when a user sends you “Streaks don’t SB” on Snapchat? Well, it means the snap which as this caption is their streak-maintenance snap that you don’t need to reply to.
But generally, it’s the Snapchat version of “I don’t wanna talk right now.” It’s often described as an attention-seeking process teenagers use to make others talk to them. Although it is impossible to know how much of that is true, teenagers are notorious for such behavior.
There’s another way to interpret this snap. For example, seeing a snap from someone always makes us want to reply with one of our own, especially if it’s a good friend. It just feels polite and is also a great conversation starter.
They could also be mad at you and are just sending this message to let you know they don’t want this streak with you. They’re asking you not to maintain the streak. While it’s not the best message to receive, it’s important to consider this as a possibility.
This scenario fits best when you’ve done something reason enough for them to act like this. If you’ve made them upset or mad in some way, this should not be surprising to you.
But it’s still possible that they’re busy and don’t have time to talk right now. To prevent you from feeling obligated to snap or chat with them, they add, “don’t snap back, this is just for the streaks.” Makes sense, don’t you think?
How do you know which one they’re talking about? Are they busy, are they mad at you, or do they just want you to talk to them?
You’ll never find that out by just looking at the snap, so you do the next best thing: send them a chat. Ask them how they’re feeling or if something’s wrong. We’re sure that if they’re upset and want to talk to you, that’s enough to get them started.
And if they’re actually busy, they’ll tell you that, but it’ll also make them feel valued and cared for. It’s a win-win, no matter how you twist this. But keep in mind that it’s not a normal caption; indeed, it’s a reason for concern. As a good friend, it’s your responsibility to understand why.
And, of course, if this is the third case, you can find out why they’re mad by going back to your recent interactions. Did you say, do, or imply something that could make them mad? Even if it was unintentional, it doesn’t mean their reaction is unjustified.
If you are indeed in the wrong, the best way to fix this is to make it up to them somehow. How you choose to do it depends on what kind of person they are, your relationship with them, and accessibility. But we’re sure that if you apologize sincerely, that would be enough for them to forgive them.
Wrapping it up
Snapchat is one of the most entertaining platforms for users who just wish to have a good time without any complications. However, the truth is complications are everywhere. Life comes with its set of problems, and that’s completely normal.
If you get a snap from someone saying, “streaks don’t SB,” it could mean any number of things. But as a general rule, it has one of three implications: they’re upset, they’re mad at you, or they’re genuinely busy.
In all three scenarios, there’s no way for you to know what’s actually happened unless you ask them. And remember, asking them is not something you can or should do. You must check in on your friend; it’s a responsibility.
Whatever the issue is, we’re sure that one true conversation with a good friend will make them feel better. If this blog has helped you sort out your relationship with a friend, let us know in the comments!
