This is a very short and simple guide on how to tell if somebody has deleted you as a friend from Snapchat.
A while back, I fell out with somebody for reasons that I’d rather not go into (it happens). Anyway, after a couple of months, it slowly began to dawn on me that they hadn’t viewed my Snapchat story in a while. Inevitably, I became intrigued. Had they removed me from Snapchat or were they simply ignoring my stories? Or had they stopped using the app altogether?
It is worth noting that Snapchat handles friend lists differently than Facebook. If you add somebody on Facebook, they have to accept your request before they show up on your friend list. However, if you add somebody on Snapchat, they will be immediately listed under your “My Friends” section, regardless of whether they have added you back or not. If somebody deletes you as a friend on Facebook, they will immediately disappear from your friend list. However, on Snapchat, if somebody removes you, their profile will still appear under your “My Friends” section. You just won’t be able to send them snaps or view their story.
The answer to figuring this out lies in the Snapchat score, which is typically displayed under the person’s name on their profile – to the right of their username. Take a look at the examples below (note that I have blurred out certain details for the sake of privacy).
Below is a screenshot of a friend’s Snapchat profile overview. Note the score, which I have highlighted in red:
In this particular case, I know that the person above is my friend, as I can still see their Snapchat score (the score is situated to the right of their Snapchat username). However, if they were to remove me, then I would no longer be able to see this score.
Here is an example of a Snapchat profile that has either removed you as a friend or hasn’t added you back:
In this case, the username is centred and you can not view their score.
Hopefully, this guide helped to clear a few things up for you!
