Snapchat Score: Meaning & Explanation


January 2016 Update: I have written a new and updated version of this article – Snapchat Score 2016

There are many things about some of Snapchat’s features that don’t make sense at all. And the very vague explanations given on their website don’t help.

For one, their best friends feature is a total killjoy. And it makes no sense that the feature gets to be stickied on users’ public profile.

And then we have the Snapchat score system, a useless feature by all accounts, but a big mystery to us all.

November 2016 Update: We’re experimenting on a tool to instantly increase your snapchat score by about 25,000 points, feel free to check it out: Snapchat Score Tool by SnappTips.

But first.

What are Snapchat Scores?

According to Snapchat’s support page, Snapchat score is the total number of snaps sent and received.

But this may not be totally true, according to observations.

Below is blogger Katie Artemas‘s Snapchat profile.

snapchat score

Notice the score displayed on top of the best friends list. As you can see, her score is 1,546. This is her Snapchat score.

You can see your Snapchat score directly by going to your profile or by tapping on the square button at the bottom left corner of your main screen and then tapping on the ‘Snapchat’ link in the green section on top (refer screenshot below).

snapchat score

As you can see in the screenshot above, the number (386) on the left side indicates the number of snaps you have sent, and the number (677) on the right side is the number of snaps you have received.

Add up these two numbers and you have your Snapchat score, which is displayed on your profile.

Snapchat Score: The Unexplained Mysteries & Theories

The theories

There is a theory doing the rounds in forums and discussion boards that you get 12 points for each snap you send out to the first 3 people and 20 points for each snap thereafter.

This seems like a plausible explanation given that some users reportedly have Snapchat scores of 90,000 and more, some as high as 700,000.

Another theory, and the most widely accepted one, is that you receive 1 point for each snap you send out and another 1 point for each snap you open. If you send a snap to multiple recipients, you still only get 1 point.

And by snap, we mean a story, a video, a photo or a text. 1 snap equals 1 point.

If this was the case however, it’s highly unlikely that someone could ever get a Snapchat score of 700,000. It would mean that this particular user exchanged 639 snaps per day continuously for 3 years with her friends since Snapchat’s launch in September 2011 to January 2014, the date of the report.

Or maybe she’s lying. That happens too. But it’s possible she’s not because there are many others who report Snapchat scores of 100,000 and above, some as high as 370,000.

The mysteries

Snapchat scores fluctuate. Sometimes they go down.

A score that measures the number of snaps sent and received should and can never go down. It’s supposed to keep on increasing. But Snapchat’s scoring system has seemed to defy the laws of physics.

There have been numerous reports of users’ Snapchat scores going down. One user reported that her Snapchat score went down from 2000 to 165 overnight.

And some people who have only recently joined Snapchat manage to maintain scores much higher than others who have been around for ages.

While these scores don’t really mean anything in terms of social influence as Facebook likes, Twitter retweets or Instagram likes do, the mystery of it all invokes one’s curiosity. And we just need to know, don’t we?

While to some, these scores are a measure of one’s popularity, to some others, it’s sort of a game, a competition of who has the highest score. To the vast majority however of course, it doesn’t mean squat.

Snapchat Score: Explained

From all the observations that we’ve seen, we can only conclude that Snapchat scores do indeed indicate the number of snaps sent and received.

You receive 1 point for each snap — photo, video, text or story — you send out. You get 1 point for each snap you open. And as far as multiple recipients are concerned when sending out a snap, you only get 1 point, because in actuality you’re only sending out 1 snap.

This however is not a hard and fast rule. Your scores may fluctuate for no apparent reason. It happens, just as bad things happen to good people.

How to Increase your Snapchat Score

If you want to increase your Snapchat score, and I know many of you do, the only plausible solution from everything that we’ve so far outlined is to snapchat more.

It’s really as simple as that. Send out a text or a photo, do an instant text chat with a friend, and then another. The more you do, the higher your score is.

Don’t worry if your score doesn’t instantly increase when sending out a snap or opening a received snap. Sometimes Snapchat scores are updated instantly, sometimes it may take a full day to see the new scores. The scores are updated on a daily basis, if not instantly.

    I don’t completely agree with the part where you say the score only goes up 1 point if you send a snap to multiple people. I stay off snap chat for weeks and my score doesn’t change then I would send 1 snap to 10 people and my score goes up by 10 points right away

    Incorrect. Sending one snap to multiple people gives you one point per person not one point per picture. I have confirmed this on my own score time and time again. I send one picture to 5 friends. I refresh my score and it increases by 5. Whether they open them or not.

  10. Jess
    September 24, 2014 at 6:54 pm | Permalink

    Perhaps why the sent | received summation doesn’t equal your score is because points are awarded based on whether they open it or not. My score is about 15 less than my summation, and that’s probably because about 15 snaps haven’t been opened somewhere down the line.

    You can apparently also get points by receiving snapchats, even if you haven’t opened them. I was curious about this and had my friend blow up my snapchat for a few minutes (I ended up with like 600 seconds worth of pictures from her) and before I opened any of them, my score jumped up significantly.

      Can your score go up and your bestfriends move around even if you haven’t opened any of the snap chats, nor sent any out?

  16. James
    October 4, 2014 at 10:41 am | Permalink

    Not all of this is completely true.. Videos on snapchat are worth more then photos are and when u send a text, it doesn’t help ur score

  17. Kryztal
    October 4, 2014 at 8:10 pm | Permalink

    You get a point for every snapchat u send to a person and every one u receive it doesn’t Matter if u have them as a best friend or if it’s a video or photo you still get one point and if u send it to 20 people then your score should raise up by 20 You may think this is weird but for every snapchat picture/video you put on your story you get a point that why probably when you sum up your received and sent it doesn’t equal your score because that means that’s how much snapchats u have put as your story.For instance I have received 5,149 snapchats and sent 5,999 which equals 11,148 and my score is 11,664 so u subtract your snapchat score (11,664) to your received and send (11,148) which equals 516 so that means that’s how much pictures/videos I have put as my story. Hoped this helped :)

    Does the texting on snapchat give you points? I recently texting someone alot and I don’t snapchat much and my score didn’t go up but when I was sending actual snapchats it would go up neither did they go on my bestfriends list?

    Is it true that snapchat scores can go up, if the person no longer uses that snapchat account. My bf claims to have lost the password to that account and created a new one, yet his score goes up on the old account every few months? Is he hiding the fact he still uses it, or can it still be changing?

    • November 6, 2014 at 8:33 am | Permalink

      It’s crazy Becuz I’m looking for the same answer as you I think their score can stil go up even if they don’t use it because people are sending them snaps still

    • William Edmeades
      January 22, 2015 at 1:10 pm | Permalink

      I think it’s because your bf is still recieving Snaps (Which still increases your points) even though he can’t send any (which also increases your points) he’s still getting those ‘recieved’ points

    I think the points tally fluctuates depending on use of snapchat. If I’ve been off snapchat a while then come back on I get points quicker but if I use all the time the points tally increases slowly (if that makes sense).

    Let’s just say 1 snap = 1 point. So you receive 1 snap. That = 1 received. However if you replay that same snap you are awarded 1 more point on your score yet still only received 1 snap. Therefore your score can be higher than snaps sent and received!

    Basically it works like this.
    The numbers at the top that you see on the sent/received page will add together to make sum of snaps you have sent and received from people. It doesn’t include stories. If something gets added to your story, it increases your overall score by 1 but it doen’t add to your sent/received sum. So your snapchat points = sum of sent and received snaps + the number of snaps you have put on your story.

    I lean towards the idea that the score is not only based on how many snaps you send and receive but also how often it occurs. The more frequently you snap the higher the points you get per snap sent and received

  69. January 8, 2015 at 3:08 am | Permalink

    I’ve solved this I believe? The numbers sent and received are accurate. Opening a snap is one point. Sending a snap is one point per person that opened the snap. The remainder is your snap stories posted. Any thing inconsistent is likely a small mistake in the snapchat servers (keep in mind an estimated 700 to 900 million are sent a day) so it wouldn’t be too surprising that a snapchat server encounters connection issues. *Note: I didn’t read the comments so someone might have thought of this theory before me.

      Surely not though… I think you’ve underestimated how many Snaps are sent a second, I don’t know what it is, but it’ll be somewhere around 100/second… maybe
      Phew, there must be A LOT of people working for Snapchat!

        100 per second IS between 8&9 million a day.

    I think there are just people who work for Snapchat that just sit there and review every single snap sent and judge them and that’s how you receive x amount of points. However this response is very logical and insightful. Mind opening. Thank you for sharing :) 420

    I think it’s a point per a second on your snapchat.

    That’s not true… My total snaps sent/recieved is 100,769 less than my summation…

    I think the most likely explanation is not that it is the actually of how many snaps have been sent, but an average. And if that average where stretched along a period of time the amount of total snaps that would output. This would explain why people who have just got the app can get high scores fast, because the system takes that amount and setermines, following that activity, his they will act on another day, and how many they will send in say a week. I dont know how many point for each or how long the time period is but I will use an example with 1 point per snap and a month (30 day) long average. Person A sends one snap a day, consistently, they therefor get an average of 1 and a score of 30, if they sent 10 a day they would get a score of 300. However person B has just joined the app and is excited so sends 100 snaps on day 1, Bs score then skyrockets to 3,000 and they are in a higher position than B instantly.

    the snapchat score being the same as your combined sent and received is wrong as my snapchat score on my profile is 49,370 yet the sent is 23,960 and the recieved is 25,114.. adding these there is nearly a 300 snap difference so I’m confused as to how that would work

    There’s a secret code for females users only in which if they send one nude, it equals 1000 points. Code is unlimited so they can send as many nude snaps as they wish. 1000 points per 1 nude.

    Here’s a thought.
    Their server would have to store it until it’s open, bit it would stress the server to have the constant chatter.

    What I’d like to see is if it is based on how many snaps are sent and unopened vs opened, vs stories opened. all would stress the servers differently. Your score may go down if a vast number of people read reread, reread your story.

    Ok it’s pretty simple. You get 1 point for sending a picture, video or message. You get 1 point for opening a picture, video or message. You get one point for every picture or video you put on your story. My snap seems to work just fine

    All this is just one big confusing mess. It says I have 351 points. I don’t snap that much or that often. What does this mean? That I’ve sent and recieved a total of 351 snaps? If so how many of those 351 would be considered snaps I sent vs. snaps I recieved?
