Snapchat is one of the leading social media platforms where users get to interact online. It is fitted with many features, with the main one being the emoji that depicts the users’ peculiarities. In this article, I am going to explain some of these emojis. Users usually find these emojis have been placed next to their contacts’ names. As it turns out, these emoji are usually not random. Rather, they depict the type of relationship that a user has with their contacts. One of the emojis is a red heart Snapchat usually places close to the name of one of your friends.
What these emojis mean, including the red heart Snapchat uses?
This heart usually appears when two users constantly send text, send a selfie, videos, audio to each other through Snapchat. It means that the two of you have a strong bond similar to that of best friends. This heart usually appears close to the contact that is at the top of your chat list. This means that this contact is the one that you chat with most of the time.
You need always to keep on chatting with your best friend. This will enable you to maintain this gold heart close to their name. Interestingly, both of you can see this gold heart close to your names on each other’s DMs. If you chat regularly with your best friend on Snapchat, you will be able to see a gold heart close to their name. The same is also applicable on the other end of your best friend’s message platform.
In the event that both of you stop texting each other after some time, you will end up losing the gold heart. The same will also happen to your best friend. Both of you will lose the chance of evolving this heart further. Therefore, you need to chat with each other regularly so as to maintain this gold heart.
Both of you will be able to receive this heart. This is only when you have been best friends for a whole two weeks. This is the first stage of evolution from the gold heart. This heart will only appear after you have been chatting, sending clips and pictures to each other regularly for two weeks straight.
However, when you start messaging other friends more than you chat with your best friend, you will end up losing this red heart Snapchat gave you. Also, your best friend’s number one spot will be replaced. Although you will be chatting with other friends, ensure that you chat more with your best friend so as to maintain this red heart Snapchat gave both of you.
💕 Pink Hearts.
This is the most iconic heart that you will ever get on Snapchat. When both of you get this heart close to your names on each other’s contact list, it means that you have been best friends for two months straight. I have not accurately calculated the algorithm that Snapchat uses. Just know the most common way to maintain this heart is to chat with each other continuously.
This heart won’t stay there for long when you stop snapping with each other, so you do not stop chatting so that both of you can maintain this heart. It is much better than the red heart Snapchat gave both of you earlier. The far that both of you have come is not worth losing this heart. To prevent this, you will need to be constantly chatting with each other so as to maintain this heart. If you lose this heart, you will have to start this friendship streak again from the very beginning.
Why Did I Lose The Red Heart Snapchat Gave Me?
Snapchat usually uses its heart feature to measure the level of friendship between users. Users are able to know how long they have been best friends and which stage of friendship on Snapchat both of you are in at the moment. It is possible to lose the red heart Snapchat gave you. This happens when you stop snapping with your best friend on the site. This usually happens when you chat more with other friends than your best friend or when you completely stop snapping with each other.
Although you can have many friends on Snapchat, you can only have one best friend at a time on the platform. This ultimate best friend is the one you have been snapping with for a long time. A heart emoji can only be given to one best friend on the platform. These heart emojis also change with time as they depict the level of friendship and how long you have been snapping with each other. Moreover, you need to snap with each other consistently so as to maintain these heart emojis.
A user can lose any of these hearts just by halting your snapping trend. Snapchat requires you to constantly chat with each other on the platform so as to maintain these hearts. There are instances where you can lose your heart emoji due to a system glitch, but chances are usually very minimal. You can get in touch with the management in case such a scenario happens to you.
Can I Have More Than One Red Heart Snapchat Gives Its Users?
It is not possible for you to have more than one red heart on Snapchat. This does not mean that you can’t have multiple best friends. As a matter of fact, you can. However, you can only have one ultimate best friend at a time, your “best of best friends.” When you have multiple best friends, each one of them will receive a smiling emoji next to their names and not heart emoji.
Snapchat only allows you to have only eight best friends if you would like to have many best friends on the platform. They will have a smiling emoji close to their names and not heart emoji. It is also impossible to rank all your “non-ultimate” best friends as all of the eight will have a smiling emoji close to their names.
