Flame Emoji

A SnapStreak begins after three days of snapchatting back and forth. Due to this, the smallest number you will ever see next to the Flame Emoji is the number 3.
The Flame Emoji will disappear if the streak is broken. Before it disappears, an Hourglass Emoji will appear to warn you that time is running out. As a reward, a Hundred Emoji will appear once a SnapStreak reaches 100.

Amongst teenagers and young people, a SnapStreak is deemed very important. It signifies a strong bond of friendship and commitment. Interestingly, people go to extreme lengths to protect their SnapStreaks.

This includes:
  • Emailing Snapchat to restore streaks claiming a loss of internet.
  • Asking a friend to log into their account whilst they're on holiday.
  • Texting or calling friends to remind them to keep the streak alive.
