This Snapchat emoji signifies 'best friends'. Basically, it means you send the most Snapchats to this person, and they send the most Snapchats to you.
#2 Red heart
Red hearts mean you've been BFFs with each other for two weeks straight. Also, both of you Snap each other a lot more than anyone else.
#3 Two pink hearts
Being BFFs for more than two months straight means you're moving on from the Yellow and Red Hearts to two Pink ones.
#4 Sneaky face
There's this Snapchat friend who sends you more snaps than you send them - that's when you get a sneaky face.
