How Long Does It Take Someone to Drop Off Snapchat Best Friends?

In the new, and sorta improved, Snapchat Best Friends, only the person that owns an account can see their best friends. These are the people that Snap or text with the most. As we all know, boyfriends and girlfriends will grab their significant other’s phone to see just who happens to be in this “best friends” list. Why on earth would my girlfriend have six guys on their best friends list? What are they sending them?

Remember, the 2017 version of Snapchat Best Friends is very different than the Top 3 best friends that could be seen by other users. The older version of the best friends went away a few years ago and still has not come back. That said, users can still see who their boyfriend, girlfriend, fiance, husband or wife has been sending pictures, texts and videos to.

A “best friend” will have a smiley face emoji by their name and they will be listed on the Best Friends section of the Friends tab based on the order in which that user talks to them the most. The person at the top is the person the user talks to the most and the person at the bottom is the person they Snap the least.

So, how long does it take someone to drop off this list if you no longer want them to be on your best friends list? It is variable. If you only Snap five people and only send two private Snaps per day, it is going to take awhile for that person on the bottom to fall off. If you sent hundreds of private Snapchat pictures, texts and videos a day it could take less than an hour for the best friends list to change.

The quickest way to get someone off your best friends list is to Snap someone else a lot. If you are worried your girlfriend is going to catch you talking to one of her friends, Snap all your guy friends for a few hours and it should bump her off the list or at least to the bottom.

In essence, the less you Snapchat, the more likely it is going to be the case that someone stays on you best friends list longer. Also note that you do not have to send them pictures or videos for them to show up on the best friends list. You can simply send them five to 10 Snapchat texts and they will show up if you don’t Snap privately a lot.

So my boyfriend left for boot camp and I still send him stuff on snap. He’s still got the red heart next to his name and it’s been a week but I’m worried the other ppl I talk to will bump him off. He doesn’t have his phone at all so I’m just sending stuff in hopes the red heart will stay? Will this work? I’ve lost the streak obviously but I have a streak with one other person for nearly 200 days. Scared to talk to anyone else too much bc i want to keep that red heart

Hey guys! The smiley faced Rosie cheeked best friend emoji……… How can there be a best friend emoji without a number one friend? Do you know how many snaps it takes to get awarded an emoji? If I hardly ever snap and I received one snap video one time, can that person suddenly get marked as one of my best friends?

I usually only send/receive snaps from 1-3 people and it’s normally only 1-3 snaps a day. I noticed yesterday a person on my friend list had a smiley face next to their name but 19 hours later they no longer had the best friend smiley face, even though I haven’t snapped many people within the last 24 hours.

Out of curiosity if I have 8 on my best friend list and never snap anyone but those 8, but ignore one for a month will that one ever fall off of my best friend list? Just over time rather than being replaced? So in essence it’ll eventually show that I have 7 best friends even though nobody bumped them out?

Right can anyone give me a decent answer because i’ve looked everywhere and I can’t find one. Can people drop off your best friends list if you just don’t talk to them. I have 8 people on my best friends list. Of that 8 I only talk to 1 of them frequently. Is it possible for the people underneath that person to just drop off the list naturally. If so how long does that take?

Hopefully you’ve gotten an answer by now but since I don’t see one here I’ll go on and tell you. In my experience it takes about one week for someone to drop off my best friend list if they are not being replaced by someone else. If they’re being replaced it can take just a few hours.

So I had someone as my number one best friend about an hour ago, and we were each other’s best friends and we had the red heart. Now, they are not even on my best friends list, but I am still on theirs. We still have a streak, but they are no longer my best friend. Why? I am confused because i have barely snapped anyone today and this happened within an hour.

The exact same thing just happened to me. I want to know what caused it and if there’s any way to fix it

Did anyone ever figure this out? The same thing happened to me, the person I talk to most suddenly disappeared from my best friend list altogether and I’ve been talking to them consistently for several days since while not really talking to anyone else besides a few messages here and there but I still can’t get the other person to be back on the list.

I haven’t texted my ex in 2 days but we are still #1 best friends. I know she snaps other people, and I do too. What does this mean?

Question: this girl my bf has been texting has caused trouble for a whole year between us. He says they’re just friends but admits she wants more. They’re mutual #1 best friends. He said they stopped talking but that it takes Snapchat a week to drop someone down from #1. I know absolutely nothing about technology, is this true?
