In this article, we will discuss the new Snapchat Plus features especially its famous Planet system.
What is Snapchat Plus Solar System Order?
All Snapchat users must be wondering what is all this fuss about the premium version of Snapchat i.e. Snapchat Plus.
Well, to subdue this confusion, we will explain in this article what this Snapchat Plus is offering to premium users and why it is the new talk of the town!
Snapchat Solar System Order is the new fascination for its exclusive users as it demonstrates your friend’s relationship with you. Let’s dig deep into what is this Solar System order of Snapchat Plus.
Solar System Order Explained
If you are confused about this new feature, we have got you covered. Just like the sequential planet’s order in the solar system, this feature demonstrates users’ friendship with another Snapchat Plus user.
Follow the below-given steps to understand this feature and how it works:
- Open your friend list on Snapchat.
- Choose the “Best Friends” or “Friends” badge with the golden border for function activation.
- When the exclusive service is subscribed, these badges can also be seen on the other Snapchat accounts as well.
- The badges can be seen right under the Friendship profile when it is picked.
- The “Friends” badge demonstrates that the user is on the close friend’s list of the picked-up friend’s profile but they are not in your close friends or the other way around.
- The “Best Friends” badge shows that both the user and the chosen friend’s profile are on the close friend list of each other.
- When it comes to the planets, consider yourself or the chosen friend profile as the sun, the center of their solar system.
- The planet showing up on the profile shows how close or far you both are based on the planet’s allocation in the actual solar system.
- Take an example, if the planet showing up is Mars, it means that in their close friend list, the user is their fourth closest friend according to the planet order.
Note: Users can add up to 8 people to their close friends list on Snapchat Plus and each friend will be assigned a planet based on the user’s interaction.
