Here we go again…
Awhile ago, Snapchat disabled users’ ability to view their friend’s best friends list. Which was probably the apps most amicable move since its launch.
Cheating boyfriends and girlfriends everywhere rejoiced, yet paranoid significant others flipped.
Oh, but cry no longer paranoid significant others, stalkers, and people with trust issues because TODAY Snapchat has decided to return to its relationship-ruining ways by using emojis.
It’s literally like Snapchat brought back the feature to show which cheaters took advantage of the update. Way to go Snapchat…BRO POUND!
1. The Yellow Heart
This means that you’re both each other’s number one best friend. Awwww….
Now this is a sign for a proposal if I’ve ever seen one. You’re basically meant to be. Obvi.
2. The Gritting Teeth Emoji
Essentially this is a call for war, folks. If you see this it means that you and one of your friends share the same number one best friend. Oh hellllllll no!
A classic example of Snapchat’s passive-aggressive snitching.
3. The Smiling Emoji
So you’re on their best friends list but not the number one best friend.
AKA, the worst thing ever. Duh. And this smiley face is basically Snapchat giving you the middle finger because they won’t tell you who the mystery number one friend is. B*tches…
4. The Sunglasses Emoji
This means that you share a best friend with one of the people on your best friend lists.
So, like, either yayyy for mutual friends or boo because your partner is cheating on you with your best friend of 10 years (most likely the case)… So there’s that.
5. The Smirk Emoji
This means that you are on that person’s best friends list, but they aren’t on yours.
So now you instantly feel superior to them as a human being. Thanks, Snapchat. Because we didn’t have enough egomaniacs already. WINNING!
6. The Fire Emoji
If you see this next to one of your Snapchat friends, it basically means you and this person are destined for each other. Like, get ready because something is going to happen. Or you are BBFs with way too much time on your hands (also very likely).
7. But wait — there’s more
And, as if these emojis weren’t already traumatic enough to your inner psyche and deep trust issues, Snapchat is really going to push you over the edge.
Now, there is a feature on the app which basically tempts you to send Snapchats to people you haven’t talked to in awhile, conveniently listed on a “need love” list.
Sooooo, basically plan on your boyfriend or girlfriend talking to their ex and dumping you, your best friend talking to your archenemy and never speaking to you again, and your dog isn’t even going to love you anymore.
Thanks a lot Snapchat.
