What do the Numbers on Snapchat Mean?

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

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

Let’s get started.

Snapchat Numbers Explained

On the screen in Snapchat where your Snapcode or User id shows you’ll see a number to the right of your Snapchat name.  That’s your Snapchat score.  The Snapchat score gets calculated from the amount of snaps you’ve sent and received, which doesn’t include chats with individual Snapchat users.                                                                                                               Snapchat Score

To see the Snapchat score of a friend swipe right on your screen.  You’ll then, be in the Snapchat Chat section.  Swipe right again on one of the Snapchat friend’s names in the list.  Then, tap on the three horizontal lines in the upper left-hand side. Friends score Snapchat

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

When you swipe right from the camera screen to the Snapchat, chat feature if you tap on the word chat another set of numbers appears.  These numbers are the amount of conversations you’ve sent on the left and the number of chats you’ve received on the right.                                                                                                                                                                                        Chats sent and received

So another location you’ll find numbers on Snapchat is on the Stories page.  Swipe left from the Snapchat camera screen and it brings you to the Stories page.  That’s where your story, where it says My Story right below Stories is displayed.  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 which indicates the number of people that have viewed each snap. Snaps viewed Tap on the number next to the purple eye icon which opens the list of individuals with your Snapchat friends and followers that have viewed your snap(s) posted to your story.                                                                                                     People viewed snap

The number next to the double arrow symbol to the right of the Eye 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.

As long as 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 score, the number of views that your snaps have gotten as well as 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.
