Although not as hit as TikTok, Snapchat is currently accessed by millions and millions of people every day. The reason why Snapchat is still being used is because of its great features that recently came to the app. The new features here are reportedly to keep things fresh.
One of the features that comes to Snapchat is the ‘Snapchat Score’. This feature works when you send a snap to your friend, you definitely will get a certain point. You may wonder how many points you will get when you send a snap to your friend. Thankfully, our post will show the information about it below!
How Many Points You’ll Get After Sending a Snap to Multiple Recipients?
According to some sources, you will earn ‘1 point’ every time you send a snap to more than one person. However, the snapchat score works based on your usage. That means, if you want to get more and more points on Snapchat, you may have to send more and more Snaps too.
Your Snapchat scores/ points can be seen next to your username on Snapchat and how it keeps going up and up. The Snapchat score here is a special equation that combines the number of snaps that you have sent and received, the stories you have posted and other factors.
Basically, the Snapchat Score actually shows how active you are on the app.
How to See Your Snapchat Score?
You can also see your Snapchat score/ point by swiping down on the Snapchat camera screen. Well, the figure will be shown beside your username. To see the number of sent snaps versus received snaps, you can tap once on your Snapchat score.
To see your Snapchat Score, you need to go to your Profile screen on the Snapchat app or you need to tap your Bitmoji’s face or the circle icon located in the top left of your screen.
The top of your Profile page will display your Snap code. Underneath your Snap Code shows your display name and your personal information such as your username, your snap score and your zodiac sign.
You can then tap on your snap score to reveal two other numbers. The number on the right is the number of Snaps that you have received and the number on the left is the number of Snap that you have sent since creating your account.
How Does Your Snapchat Score Increase?
You may notice that after performing some quick calculation, simply adding together your number of Snaps sent and received will result in a number that is less than your Snapchat point. According to Snapchat, the score of your Snapchat is also based on a number of other factors.
Based on research, there are factors that will increase your Snapchat score, here are they:
- Snaps Sent
- Snaps Received
- Number of users added
- The number of stories you post
- Consistently send Snap Streaks with your friends
- Bonus points as you begin using the app again once not using it for a while
How to Increase Your Snapchat Score?
The main ways to increase your Snapchat score are to get snapping, send out Snaps and always be active on the app. There are a number of ways that you can do to increase your Snapchat score dramatically without bothering all of your friends.
First, you may need to add celebrity Snapchat accounts to your friends list. You can use them to increase your Snapchat score while enjoying their content. To save your time, you can also look for the sources on the internet that show the list of celebrity Snapchat accounts to follow.
The celebrities that you add may never reply to any of your Snaps, they will also never open or receive your Snaps. That said, sending a celebrity still only increases your Snapchat score by one point, but at least you don’t disturb your friend.
Unlike Twitter and Instagram that have hack programs which will help the users get followers, the Snapchat algorithm cannot be actually hacked. If you engage a program that promises they can increase your Snapchat score, that’s a total scam, wasting your time a lot.
The best effort of increasing your Snapchat score is to use the apps as much as possible. With your daily actions, you will break records in no time. However, you also need to know some of the common misconceptions about adding to your Snapchat score, here are they:
- The number of your Snapchat score will only increase by sending photo and video Snaps. If you send the text messages through the Snapchat app, they do not count.
- You will not get extra points for sending the same Snap to multiple recipients.
- To get a point, you may also need to send a unique Snap.
What Is the Snapchat Score Breakdown?
As we’ve mentioned, you will receive a Snapchat point by sending a snap, opening a snap. It’s important to note, you will not get points just for messaging on Snapchat. You definitely will receive a point for posting a Snap for your story.
However, the Snapchat scores will not increase if you watch a story. The additional points to your Snapchat score may all come at once and probably take a while to register. If you have not been active on Snapchat for a while, when you send a snap on the app, it will add six points to your score.
You can also view your friend’s scores as you swipe right on their name to chat with them. After that, you can click the three blue lines on the top left corner of your chat screen. Well, their score will be shown next to their username.
In this case, a snapchat score will be similar to a friends list of followers list on other apps. However, it really gives some authority to your profile and shows people how strong your snap game is.
The point is, none really knows and understands the exact answer to how Snapchat calculates every user’s score depending on how you send and receive snaps.
