When used on Snapchat, SB stands for ‘Snap Back.’ If someone sends you “SB,” they’re simply asking you to reply to them and keep a conversation going.

You might have also come across the popular phrase “SB for streak” in a direct message. This means that the user is asking for you to reply to them with a photo in order to maintain your Snapstreak.

While you are most likely to see the term in your DMs, it can also pop up in Stories, posts, and videos when a Snapchatter is speaking to a large group of people.

One context it could be used in would be, “SB to be added to my private story.” This simply means that a person is asking users to respond to their Snap, in order to be selected and added to their Private Story.
