What do the Numbers on Snapchat Mean?

Even if you’re a longtime Snapchat user you may wonder, what do all the numbers mean? There are numbers scattered all over the Snapchat application. If you’re new to Snapchat, you’re probably still figuring out how it all works, but all these numbers can be confusing for anyone.

We hope this article will clarify things for you. We’re going to look at all the parts of the Snapchat app, and tell you what the numbers stand for and what they mean for you as a Snapchat user.

Let’s get started.

Snapchat Numbers Explained

On the screen in Snapchat where your Snapcode or User id appears, you’ll see a number to the right of your Snapchat name. That’s your Snapchat score. The Snapchat score gets calculated from the number of snaps you’ve sent and received (which doesn’t include chats with individual Snapchat users). We go into more detail about what goes into your Snapchat score here.Snapchat Score

To see a friend’s Snapchat score, first swipe right on your screen. This will take you to the Snapchat Chat feature, where you’ll see a list of your Snapchat friends’ names. Swipe right again on one names in the list. This will open a window for chatting with them. Tap on the three horizontal lines in the upper left-hand corner of the window. Friends score Snapchat

When you do this, you’ll see your friends Snapcode,  Snapchat user id, and Snapchat score in the left side panel.              Friend's Snapchat score

If you tap on the word “chat” from the Snapchat chat feature, another set of numbers appears. The number on the left is how many conversations you’ve sent. The number on the right is how many chats you’ve received.Chats sent and received

The Stories page is another place you’ll find some numbers. Swipe left from the Snapchat camera screen to open the Stories page. Your story is displayed where it says “My Story” right below “Stories.” Tapping on the three horizontal dots opens up all the snaps you’ve posted to your story.

You’ll see a number displayed next to each snap in your story. This number indicates how many people have viewed each snap. Snaps viewedIf you tap on the number next to the purple eye icon, this opens the list of your Snapchat friends and followers who have viewed the snap(s) posted to your story.                                                                                                     People viewed snap

To the right of the eye icon is an icon that looks like a double arrow, or two crossed pointers. The number under this icon indicates how many screenshots have gotten taken of your snap. As you can see above, that number is zero for this snap. Yes, screenshots can get taken of your snaps, so be mindful of what you’re posting.

So, if you’ve read all the way through this post, you now know what all the numbers on Snapchat mean.  You know where to find your Snapchat score, your friends’ Snapchat scores, the number of views that your snaps have gotten, and the number of snaps you’ve sent and received. We hope this makes the world of Snapchat numbers and their meanings much clearer to you. If you want to dive deeper and become a real power-Snapchat-user, check out some more of our tips here.
