What is a Snapstreak on Snapchat? And What does the number next to Fire Emoji mean?

Some of you might have noticed or wonder that some of your Snapchat's friends have different emojis display next to their names like the fire emoji or icon. Well these emojis replaced the Snapchat's most favorite and controversial feature "Best Friends" which displays the top three friends that you have been on a “Snapstreak” with to the rest of your contacts. These emojis (you may check out What Do Snapchat Emojis and Numbers Mean? ) marked your friends which indicates the level of Snapchat activity between the two of you.

Streaking on Snapchat has nothing to do with  nudity. Instead, it means that two users are engaged in an ongoing "Snapstreak," which is a fancy way of saying you two have consecutively snapchatting each other for some time. The longer the Snapstreak, the the higher the Snapstreak scores. Cool right!

Snapchat Snapstreak is usually counted in days. As long as you and your friend keep sending each other snaps everyday, your streak continues to burn or count on. Now lets look What does this 'hot' emoji even mean? or Snapchat Snapstreak 101 is all about.

What does the 🔥 even mean on Snapchat?

If you noticed this icon it means you are on a Snapstreak. In other words, you and your friend have Snapped each other within 24 hours for more than one consecutive day.

What does the number next to the 🔥 mean on Snapchat?

The number next to the 🔥 tells you how long you've been on a Snapstreak with that particular friend. For example, if you have an '10' next to the 🔥, it means that both of you have Snapped (not Chat) back and forth  for '10' days. If it is 15 days, correspondingly it will 15. Cool right!
