UPDATE: Snapchat 2.0 is out but we still are unable to see if someone has viewed our story more than once. Something we have noticed is that a Snapchat user name moves to the top when they view a story later in the day. Basically, if Jessica looks at your story at 8:15 am and then watches it again at 2:35 pm her name does move back to the top.
Sadly, most people are never going to notice this nor do they have the time to monitor who has looked at their story and what time. Hopefully, things are going to change with Snapchat and there will be an emoji beside a name if a person views more than once.
This is going to get interesting in the near future. As of right now, Snapchat users cannot see how many times someone else has viewed their story. I think anyone that has used Snapchat more than a handful of times has likely watched someone’s story multiple times and thought, “Can they see how many times I’ve watched this?” At this point, the answer is no but that may change. Hopefully not.
Another question I get quite a bit is, “Can I see how many views other people or getting?” or “Can people see how many views I get on Snapchat?” As of December 2015 there is not a public profile for a snapchat user therefore no one else can see the views another user is getting. That said, many people are taking screenshots and sharing their views on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. It will be interesting to see if Snapchat ever makes a public profile for users so everyone can see the number of views they are getting.
Here are what some people had to say on Twitter:

As you can see, there are mixed feelings about being able to see how many times someone has viewed a story. Someone on Twitter mentioned that when a user views your story again their name goes to the top of the list. This is absolutely not the case. I have tested it multiple times. Once you have viewed their story they see it once and your name does not move on the list.
Once over 100 people have viewed a story it only shows the last 100 people to view it so you have nothing to worry about if someone is popular. They may not even know you viewed their story if they are getting thousands of views. That said, the majority of Snapchat users are getting around 25-50 views and they know exactly who is viewing their story.
