Nowadays, one of the biggest social media networks is Snapchat. Snapchat is a widely popular application around the world and especially among teenagers. This application offers a number of fun features but you may not know how to use some of them. There is a feature on this application called Snapchat scores. No other major social media application offers a scoring system, so there is the chance that you don’t know what it is and how it works on Snapchat. This is the reason why I have decided to give you a tutorial on this Snapchat feature. So read along to find out more.
What is Snapchat score?
Based on all different aspects that you use Snapchat, your score is calculated based on a “social equation”. So, the way and the extend to which you use Snapchat determines your score. This score depends on different factors such as:
- The number of sent snaps
- The number of received snaps
- The number of stories you post
So this means that the more you send and receive snaps and post stories, the higher your score will be. We don’t exactly know how often this social equation is recalculated, but it is probably on a weekly basis. In fact, this score shows how active you are on Snapchat. If we want to compare Snapchat scores feature with other applications, it can be said that it is somehow similar to the number of followers or friends on other applications such as Instagram or Facebook.
How to find your Snapchat scores
In order to see you own Snapchat score, launch your Snapchat application on your device. Swipe and navigate to the camera tab. Now swipe down from top of the screen to pull down the snapcode tab.
Right beside your Snapchat username, you will see a number which is your Snapchat score. You can tap on it once to see your number of sent vs received snaps.
You can see your friends’ Snapchat scores as well. Swipe right on their name to chat with them, then click the three blue lines on the top left corner of your chat screen. Their score will be displayed beside their username.
How to increase your Snapchat scores
There is no Snapchat hack or trick which you can use to increase your Snapchat score fast and easy. This score only increases when you use the application a lot! Here is what gives you scores on Snapchat:
- Some scores are given to you when you register
- You receive one point for sending a snap
- You receive one point for receiving a snap
- Receive a post for posting a story
- Your score will not increase if you send a message or watch a story
- If you have not been active on Snapchat for a while then the first Snap you send will add 6 points to your score
The truth is that no one really knows how Snapchat scores are really calculated. It seems that a number of multiple factors are used to calculate this score.
