What are Snapchat Planets?

When you subscribe to Snapchat Plus, you’ll see a Best Friends badge with a gold ring on a person’s Friendship Profile. This badge shows they are among the top eight friends you send Snaps to and chat with on the app.

You can see which “planet” you are in their Snapchat Solar System by tapping on the badge. Each planet represents a different position on their Best Friends list.

Snapchat Planets: order and meaning

When visualizing the Snapchat Solar System, imagine yourself as the sun. The person you interact with most on Snapchat is represented by the planet Mercury, which is closest to the sun in real life. From here, the second-most frequent person is represented by Venus, while the third person on the list has an Earth badge, and so on.

As such, the planets of your friends in order from closest to furthest are as follows:

  • Mercury
  • Venus
  • Earth
  • Mars
  • Jupiter
  • Saturn
  • Uranus
  • Neptune

Sadly, there is no love for Pluto in this list.
