How To Delete Snapchat Best Friends
Over time, we are expected to meet new people and get cut off from our old friends. The same is the case with social media apps.
In the case of Snapchat, it automatically assigns your friends the title of best friends according to the time you spend chatting and sharing snaps with them.
However, there is no option on Snapchat to allow its users to remove any specific person from their best friends list. You can use an alternative way to hide the people from the list of best friends on Snapchat.
Method #1: Decrease Interaction
The first and natural way to remove people from the list of best friends is to stop or decrease interaction with those users who are on the list of best friends.
The algorithm of Snapchat is designed to assign the title of best friends to the people you interact with the most. The more you interact with users, the more chances they will be on the best friends list.
The best way to replace the users who are already on the best friend list with those who are not on the list is by increasing the interaction later. However, it can be time-consuming, and you might have to wait a month to see results.
Another way to delete Snapchat best friends is to delete the contact from your friends.
Once you delete the contact from your friends’ list on Snapchat, it will stop appearing on the best friend list.
To do that, you have to follow these simple steps:
- Go to Chat, located at the bottom left of the screen of Snapchat. It will open the list of contact on your Snapchat.
- Choose the contact from the list of friends you want to remove from your best friends by tapping on the Bitmoji of that user. It will lead you to the profile of that user.
- Tap on the three dots in the screen’s upper right corner. It will pop up the options to “remove” or “block” the contact.
You can choose from remove and block depending upon your need.
Removing a contact will hide the contact temporarily from your account. The other person can still send you snaps, and you can also add that user again anytime.
But blocking the user can not only hide that user from your profile, but it will also make it impossible for the other person to see your stories or send you snaps.
