And one of the most controversial features of Snapchat is the Best Friends list. In this article, we'll try to understand what Snapchat best friends are, how does it work and how you can get rid of it.

What are Snapchat Best Friends?

Snapchat best friends are a selected list of 3 people that most frequently chat with you, or that you most frequently chat with, on Snapchat.

You can find your Snapchat best friends on top of your contacts list when you're about to send out a snap. It is placed on top of the contacts list for easy access to people that you most frequently chat with, which makes sense. It saves you the trouble of looking through your entire list to find the people that you want to send the snap to.

However, the best friends list is also displayed publicly on your Snapchat profile. Anyone who visits your profile can see your best friends. This is wrong in so many levels.

Hoes does Snapchat best friends work?

Snapchat best friends are updated on a weekly basis. They represent the people you chat with most frequently over the past week.

A score measure the number of snaps exchanged between you and each of your friends for a week. Whoever has the highest scores get to the best friends list.
