Snapchat 8 Best Friends – Funniest Twitter Reactions

Snapchat’s 8 best friends feature is one of the changes Evan Spiegel warned us about.  The list shows you who you contact on Snapchat the most.  Snapchat’s best friends list originally featured 7 BFFs but they’ve increased the number to 8.  In the video at the end of this article, Snapchat’s founder, Evan Spiegel discusses how the app will change in the near future.

Making Snapchat more personal

Spiegel explains that Snapchat has plans to become more personal.  One complaint the company has received is that pics from your friends is mixed in with content from publishers and influencers.  You don’t consider your friends content instead you value your relationship with your friends.  Snapchat wants to separate the social from the media by reorganizing the app around your relationships.

The following tweet explains that your friends can tie for a spot on the new Snapchat best friends list.  That’s how some people have ended up with 8 best friends.  According to the tweet, once one of your friends beats the other out, you’ll have 7 best friends.

The tweet below explains that 8 best friends is too many.  I agree.  There was once a time when having one best friend was a social norm.  Social media has completely changed our relationships.

I don’t think Snapchat should make any more changes.  The app has been one of the most popular apps in the app store for a long time.  If it’s not broken don’t fix it.
