On Snapchat, ESB stands for ‘Everyone Snap Back.’ This term is often used when a person wants all their friends or recipients of a particular snap to reply with their own picture or message.

For example, someone might share a snap asking a question with the caption, “ESB with your answer,” to indicate that they want everyone who views the snap to reply with their response.

Alternatively, if a user sends “ESB” in a group message, they are requesting for their friends to send a snap back to them, to ensure that their Snapstreaks are well maintained. The term is essentially a way to encourage engagement and interaction among Snapchat users.
