Yet Another Snapchat Update

A couple months ago, I wrote about the outrage that ensued after Snapchat launched an update that removed the "Best Friends" list. Earlier this month, Snapchat brought it back—kind of.

Instead of making the "Best Friends" list public, Snapchat created a symbolic emoji system.

For example, if you've been snapping a friend quite often for consecutive days, a fire emoji will appear next to your username. My personal favorite is the smirk emoji, which signifies that you're their best friend but they're not yours. I like that the face gives off a smug, mischevous vibe.

I guess Snapchat CEO Evan Spiegel wasn't bluffing when he said he'd find a way to bring back the infamous "Best Friends" list while maintaining some level of privacy.
