How can I increase my Snap score?
The simplest way to understand the Snap score, given how much we don't actually know about it, is as a conglomeration of all your various interactions while using the app (except chats). Therefore, the more you use it, the higher your number will be. It sounds simple, because it IS simple!
There are plenty of sites offering to increase your score by thousands of points with the click of a button, but these "hacks" are more likely to lead you down a rabbit hole of spam and identity theft than result in higher numbers.
If you're dead-set on bumping up your numbers as quickly as possible, here's a semi-sketchy method that actually works: follow a bunch of celebrities on Snapchat, and send them a ton of snaps. Your score goes up regardless of whether the recipient opens them, so if you send Calvin Harris 1,000 snaps of your toaster oven each week, you'll be in the 10k club in no time. You'll also never be best friends with Calvin Harris, but is that such a bad thing?
Of course, if you could care less about nebulous numerical values that may or may not reflect your social worth, feel free to ignore your score and use Snapchat in whatever way you see fit.
