Add Comment
Social media plays a large role in people's lives these days. It helps us explore new things, stay in touch with friends and family and lets you share pictures and videos. If you are a social media addict or love to keep up with the social trend, chances are you're already using Snapchat. If you are not, here's a small description about the app for newbies. Snapchat is a popular photo and video messaging app that allows you to put together photos and videos in the form of stories or sent them to your friends. As soon as a person views these photos and videos, they will self-destruct (for more details, check out our exclusive guide on Snapchat). This feature has made Snapchat one of the most popular and well-liked social media apps in the world.

Created by Bobby Murphy, Evan Spiegel and Reggie Brown. Snapchat has made messaging a fun and interesting activity. It has given a whole new meaning for picture taking, making it addictive and entertaining. The photos and videos that you send to your friends can be seen by them for up to 10 seconds, after which they disappear. You can also add the snaps in your story and every such snap that you have added to your story will remain there for 24 Hours and then disappear.

What is Snapchat score?

Snapchat score

The Snapchat score is roughly the total number of snaps you have sent and received, according to Snapchat's website. The score is displayed right next to your username. You can also see the snapchat scores of your friends. Every time you send out a snap, your score increase by one point. It also increases every time you open a snap. However, the score is not affected for text chats. There are also situations when there may be a sudden increase or decrease in your score. Snapchat score also gives a impression of how much active you are to the other user. The more the score, the more active obviously. In this article, how you will learn how to increase snapchat score.

How to increase Snapchat score?

We live in a competitive world, where people are always looking for ways to win and excel in things. If you think your Snapchat score is too low and you want to increase it, here are a few ways:

1) Sending and receiving snaps

How to increase Snapchat score 2017

This one is obvious, as the main goal of Snapchat is to send Snaps. As mentioned earlier, your Snapchat score increases as and when you send and receive snaps. So, if you want to increase your snapchat score, keep sending and receiving snaps. The more you send and receive, the higher your score will be. If you're desperate to increase your score, you can just do the old school trick of sending Snaps of the whole English alphabets to someone you know.

2) Send snaps to people who may never open them

Hitting your friends with your snaps all the time is not a good idea as it may become boring for them, unless you sent them something exciting (If you know what I mean). Another interesting and fun way to increase your Snapchat scores is to add as many celebrities or people who have lots of followers as you can. These people may not even open your snaps let alone reply to them.

3) Shutdown your Snapchat for a while

This may sound crazy, but shutting down your Snapchat for a while may actually help increase Snapchat score. When you reboot the app after staying away for a bit and start sending and receiving snaps, Snapchat team feels pleased to see you back that they boost your scores!

You may come across websites/apps that claim that they can hack into the Snapchat scoring system and increase Snapchat score by a large amount. But the truth is that they don't work at all. The Snapchat algorithm cannot be hacked and so don't let these websites play dirty tricks on you. Instead of high scores, all you will end up with, will be millions of spam in your inbox and an endless list of boring surveys to fill up.

With the high popularity of Instagram, people love making their own stories on Instagram which is similar to Snapchat stories where you can upload a photo/video with a caption, that will disappear after 24 hours. Snapchat is another dramatically fast story, picture, and video sharing app that influenced the implementation of Instagram stories. Ever since the release of Instagram stories, people have started to shift from Snapchat to Instagram due to the fact there are more users on Instagram than Snapchat, meaning more exposure. Backing up photos/videos on Snapchat was a major issue until the release of Snapchat Memories, which allows you to save your media files to phone's storage and backup your media files online for later use.

Snapchat is a popular social networking app which allows you to send pictures and videos that expire after a certain period of time set by the sender. (self destruct, as I like to call it.) This is what makes Snapchat unique and "safer" as compared to other social networks, since if someone tries to get smart by screen-shotting snaps, the user is informed. When Snapchat just started out, there were many third party apps available on App stores which allowed you to save videos and snaps automatically without any problem, until Snapchat was hacked in October 2014 which made Snapchat advance it's security which resulted in the death of the majority of the apps. But that doesn't mean it's impossible to save Snaps without them knowing, there's still a way you can do so.
