Snapchat users enjoy sharing selfies and videos with their friends without the worry that they will be seen by others for an extended period of time. Snapchat has a feature where a user receives a notification if someone screenshots or re-plays one of their Snaps. Apart from that, people use Snapchat to communicate because chats disappear once the chat or group chat is closed. To avoid losing text from the app, the user must save it.
Snapchat also provides emojis that appear to the right of each friend’s chat name to make the chatting experience more interesting. These emojis on chats represent friendship, and it is easy for a person to tell if they have recently talked to a friend. Every emoji has meaning because it represents or exhibits the strength of two Snapchat friends. The more you share selfies and messages with someone on this social platform, the more frequently the emoji changes. These emojis, however, are time-limited and will vanish if you don’t talk to the person for more than two days. Many people are confused as to what does the red heart mean on Snapchat. Everything you need to know is right here.
What Does the Red Heart Mean on Snapchat?
According to many reports, the color red and red-colored objects represent danger, strength, power, determination, as well as passion, desire, and love. Because red is such an intense color, it is associated with strong emotions and feelings. This is why many people give red roses as a gift to a friend on various occasions to show the intensity of their love for them. If, on Snapchat, a red heart appears next to a friend, it means that you have been #1 best friends for two weeks straight. This shows that you sent the most snaps to this friend every day for two weeks, and they reciprocated in kind. This also reveals that you and your friend are more involved in sharing Snaps with each other than the majority of your friends on your friend’s list.
Snapchat does not only have red heart, but also a yellow heart and small pink hearts. Both emojis are rewarded after two months of maintaining your streak. After two months of constant chat, pink hearts emoji is rewarded. The Yellow Star is only marked for the best friend you’ve been sending the most snaps.
