How to know if someone is following you on Snapchat.

I love Snapchat, I know that Instagram Stories is all booming and happening, but It doesn’t have to get you off Snapchat, this funny, real-life social medium is just very nice. On Snapchat, you share everything you want to share and especially everything but picture perfect, just real life. You throw the makeup moments that you would rather not share on Instagram at Snapchat; you can get a better insight of the day to day life of those that you follow.

It’s not just the real-life nature of Snapchat that distinguishes it from Instagram. Snapchat is also designed to be very secretive. It makes it difficult to know if someone is following you if you are not following them back. In fact, as of now, there is no generally accepted way to check if someone follows you on Snapchat when you don’t follow them. This is unlike Instagram, where the app clearly provides two lists one for followers and the other for following.

While the emphasis on Snapchat is on sharing and instant communication rather than the statistics of who follows you and who you follow, it still has a way of showing some of these statistics to help you feel good; I mean, who wants to be publishing snaps when nobody is seeing it.

What if somebody deleted you or stop following you?

To delete someone from one’s Snapchat friends list is same as to stop following the person. This can be very annoying especially if you get to find out that it was a very dear friend of yours. But, not to know is to keep playing the fool.

You can also check if someone has deleted you, by following these steps

  • Go to your profile page on Snapchat
  • Select, my friends’ option
  • Select the particular friend you want to check out
  • Tap and hold the person’s Snapchat name until his/her yellow ghost icon and snapcode comes up
  • If you can see the person’s Snapscore, it means he is still following you. If otherwise, he has deleted you.

Another way to check if someone has deleted you is to send them a snap. If it remains in “pending state”, it could mean that the person has deleted you. “Pending state”, is indicated by the grey arrows. It should change to green to indicate that your snap has been received and read.

However, this is not a sure way to know if the person has deleted you or not since, having your snap-in pending state could mean a host of other things. Some of the reasons for having your snap-in pending state are highlighted below.

  • The person has deleted you
  • The person’s privacy setting has been set to maximum
  • The person has left Snapchat altogether

Therefore, don’t panic yet if your snap remains in pending state, Just quickly go and check if you can see the person’s snap score and that will be the real test for whether or not that your best friend has deleted you from his friends list on snap chat. So there it is, now you will know that friend who has been snubbing you on Snapchat.
