Snapchat+ has a number of features that are exclusive to members of its new premium service.
One of these features is the ‘Friends Solar System’ which allows you to see where you rank based on the planet assigned to you.
Your top 8 friends on Snapchat are assigned a planet based on how much they interact with you.
If you are someone’s top friend then you will be assigned Mercury, the closest planet to the sun.
How To See The Friends Solar System
In order to see the Snapchat Planets and work out where you rank in a friends solar system you need:
- To have joined Snapchat Plus.
- You and your friend must have a linked Bitmoji.
..if you have all this in place head to your friends’ profile and underneath their Bitmoji image you will see either a ‘Best Friends’ or ‘a ‘Friends’ badge with a gold border.
- Best Friends: Means you’re both one of each other’s top 8 friends (the planetary positions)
- Friends: Means you’re one of their top 8 friends but they’re not one of your top 8.
If you click on this badge it will show you the planet you have been assigned.
Snapchat Plus Planets Order
The planets on Snapchat+ (and also in the actual solar system) are in this order, with the Mercury being closest to the sun, and Neptune being furthest away:
So if your friend is the sun and you’re Venus in their solar system then you are their second closest friend based on Snapchat interactions.
