What is Snapchat score and how does it work?

As an image-sharing platform, Snapchat has always been a force to reckon with, thanks to some unique features like disappearing messages and the Snap score. These perks have made it one of the most popular social media apps, especially among younger audiences. The Snapchat score is a feature that keeps a majority of its massive users engaged with the app. 

Essentially, it is a number that represents your activity level on the platform. For any regular Snapchat user, knowing how the score is calculated and what they can do to increase it can come in really handy. The basic idea behind increasing it is to use the app more. And of course, you get bragging rights as the score is visible to your friends.

You can check your Snapchat score by swiping down on Snapchat’s camera screen and the number will be displayed right next to your username. When you swipe right on your friends’ names to chat with them, you can check their Snap scores too.


How is your Snapchat score calculated?

The primary way to increase your Snapchat score is by sending and receiving snaps. Each snap you send or receive earns you one point, and the more you send and receive, the higher your score will be. This means that those who frequently use the app will have a higher score than those who rarely use it.

You can also increase your Snapchat score by posting snaps on your story, and each will earn you a point. Posting a story still implies that you’re using the app as a broadcast platform rather than one for personal messaging. Keep in mind that you cannot increase your Snap score by just watching someone else’s stories.


Other ways to increase your Snap score

Filters and lenses are synonymous with Snapchat, and using these, along with stickers, can earn you extra Snapchat score points. Each time you use a filter or a lens, you will earn a point. This is a way for Snapchat to get its consumers to frequently use the new features that it introduces. 

If you’re a fan of unlocking achievements and reaching milestones in true gamer fashion, Snapchat lets you do just that to increase your Snap score. Examples include reaching a certain number of snaps sent, snaps received, or snaps posted on stories.


Can Snapchat score be deducted?

Finally, it is worth noting that your score can also decrease if you violate the app’s terms of service. This includes activities like sending spam messages or inappropriate content. 

If Snapchat detects that you violated their terms of service, it may deduct points from your score or even suspend your account. Therefore, it is recommended to avoid doing so.
