What Do the Different White Ghosts on Snapchat Mean?

UPDATE: With Snapchat 2.0 comes a number of changes including more places in which we are seeing the Snapchat white ghosts. Users are seeing them beside their friends, on the Added Me screen and Add Friends from an address book in the phone.

At this point, we are unaware of a way to change this white ghost. You can take a selfie for your Snapchat ghosts but you cannot manually select a different type of white ghost to show up when your friends see it on their list.

When someone you do not know adds you on Snapchat you will either see a Selfie Ghost or a white ghost with a funny face. The white ghosts look like this:

white-ghosts-snapchat-added-you

I believe these are all the ghosts that show up when someone new adds you. Note that the black one is often a selfie ghost. At this point, I do not know how you can see another user’s selfie ghost if they are already your friend. The only trick is to remove them as a friend and if they have added you you will see them on the added friends list.

I have no idea why a specific white ghost shows up for any given user. If anyone knows why please feel free to comment below. I get over 100 new Snapchat followers every single day and I have not been able to come up with a reason as to why one user has a smilie white ghost and another has a sad face or crying face.

I would love to know more as to why certain white ghosts pop up on Snapchat. If you have any information do not hesitate to comment below.

I know what a few mean, because I know my relationships with users in my list! Fourth row, second in means you deleted them. I think second row, second in means you blocked them. Second row, fourth in means they added you but they aren’t in your contact list at all. Third row, second in means you added them and are waiting for them to add you back. Not sure about the rest!

I think it’s the amour of times you snap a person, like if you’re a boy and you always snap girls then you have a winky face ghost, and if people snap you a lot you have the one with the bubble gum (: (I think)

The “bubble gum” is when they add you by phone number

no,the bubblegum does not mean they added you by phone number. I do not know what it means, but I know it doesn’t mean that because on my phone that is next to Justin Bieber… and I can guarantee you he doesn’t have my number nor has he added me back?…although I wish he did both…lol

Pretty sure none of them actually mean anything. If you go to find friends & start typing in a name, you’ll notice the ghost changes for every letter you type. So it just depends on the number of characters in their snapchat name.
