What Do the Snapchat Emojis Mean?

More than 150 million people use Snapchat every day around the world, and if you’re one of them then you’ve certainly noticed that on your list of friends, there are little icons next to people’s names. Have you ever wondered, what do those symbols mean? It’s simple! Snapchat uses certain emojis to tell you a little about your relationship with your friends on the Snapchat app. If you have just made friends with someone on the app, for example, the emoji is of a baby’s face (because you’re “baby” friends, get it?) Understanding these emojis is the key to keeping track of your snapping habits.

What Are Snapchat Emojis?

The emojis you select to apply to your snaps or message to your friends are up to you to choose, but the friend emojis are selected by Snapchat on the basis of certain criteria within the app itself. You can change which emojis are applied for each set of criteria, but you can’t just decide to move someone from one category to another; that’s automatic and up to Snapchat’s algorithms. I’ll show you how to change the emoji that’s associated with any of the criteria in the following list further down in this article.
