Snapchat’s plus subscription provides you a unique social feature called “Friend Solar System” that classifies friends into different planets based on your interactions. Each planet tells you how close the connection is. When you open a chat with a friend, their profile shows a mini orbiting solar system with your avatar as the sun and their icon as a planet. The planet’s position relative to the sun indicates where they rank in your celestial social hierarchy. Friends you snap daily land closest as Mercury. Less frequent contacts get relegated farther as Mars or Jupiter.
While Snapchat doesn’t reveal the exact parameters used to calculate orbits, the basic principle is that friends you interact with more land nearer while those you’re less engaged with drift farther in your personalized galaxy. Exploring what different planets denote and how to boost your status in friends’ systems allows maximizing Snapchat’s social connectivity. Lets understand it in more details:
