Snapchat is a popular social media application loved by many. Users seem to like the tricks that they can do with the app. As well as the various filters with which they can play. There are even several Snapchat-like apps that captivate users attention for hours at a time. Recently, a reader asked, “What does the star that appears next to certain contacts on Snapchat mean?” The star symbol can mean one of three things. So, what does the star on Snapchat mean?
Favorite Contact Snapchat Star
Say that you have a contact that you frequently contact and with whom you share several snaps. The Snapchat apps algorithm notices this and automatically marks this contact as one of your favorites. Favorite contacts stand out from others because they have a star-shaped symbol near their names on your contact list.
Multiple Replay Star on Snapchat
Secondly, there is also a yellow star that appears when someone has rewatched your snaps multiple times. Hence, when you open your Snapchat and see a star near someone’s name, perhaps someone with whom you do not frequently interact, this symbol means that the person has replayed one of your recent snaps several times.
A Friend Replied to A Snap
When you post a snap to Snapchat your friends have the chance to reply to the snap within 24 hours. Once a friend replies to a snap a star appears beside the friend’s name. It is the same as above. The star emojis appear next to Snapchat contact names and have the following meanings: ???? Gold Star — Someone has replayed/replied to this person’s snaps in the past 24 hours.
