If you’re a Snapchat+ user, you might have noticed the Friend Solar Systems which allows users to see what position they are in their best friends list. Here’s everything you need to know about what the planets mean on Snapchat.

For many people, Snapchat is one of the platforms they use on a daily basis to chat with friends and upload images or videos to their stories, among many other features.

If you’ve used the multimedia messaging app for any length of time, you would have probably noticed various emojis next to your contacts’ names. These emojis are used to indicate your level of friendship on the app with that person.

The meaning of the planets on Snapchat

When clicking on someone’s profile, you might see a badge that reads either friends or best friends. If you have Snapchat+, clicking on the best friends badge will allow you to see which planet they are/represent.

The best friends badge means you are one of each other’s eight closest friends on the app. The planet’s proximity to the sun tells you how close you are to that person. So, if your friend is the sun, and you are the Earth in their solar system, that means, you are their third closest friend.

The order of the planets from closest to least close is as follows:

  1. Mercury
  2. Venus
  3. Earth
  4. Mars
  5. Jupiter
  6. Saturn
  7. Uranus
  8. Neptune
