How to Tell if Someone Is Ignoring You on Snapchat?

Do you think someone is ignoring you on Snapchat intentionally? That always leaves a bad taste, but it’s worth making sure they are really ignoring you or if they’re simply not using Snapchat.

Here are several ways you can figure out if someone is ignoring you on Snapchat:

  1. They are opening your direct messages but not replying
  2. They are posting new stories but don’t interact with you
  3. Their Snap Map is constantly updated, which means they are using Snapchat
  4. Their Snap Score is increasing, but they don’t reply to you

People are sometimes forgetful and may not realize you’ve sent them a message, so don’t assume the worst about your friend yet.

After going through this guide, you’ll know if your friend is ignoring you or just being a forgetful clutz. Keep reading for more information on this!

Send Them a Direct Message

You’ve probably already done this, which is why you’re reading this guide. But, the first thing you should do when you think someone is ignoring you on Snapchat is to send them a direct message.

Snapchat application window where you can send a direct message to someone.
Send your friend a direct message.

So, open a chat with them and send them a direct message asking for something. After you send the message, watch their chat status to see if they opened the message.

Direct messages on Snapchat have two statuses – “Delivered” and “Received“. When the message says “Delivered“, it means that the message was sent, but the other person hasn’t seen it.

If it says “Received“, it means the other person has seen your message. If they don’t reply to it in a few hours, then it’s likely that they’re ignoring you.

But what if they never read the message? Keep reading! They have an excuse, and you’re still unsure if they’re ignoring you.

Check Their Stories

After you send them a direct message, please wait for some time and check their stories. Have they posted any stories after you messaged them?

This might mean they ignore you because they are using Snapchat, yet they’re not replying to your messages.

You can’t use Snapchat and not see that someone has messaged you. If you take the time to post a story, then you have time to reply to your friend.

They are ignoring you if they’ve posted stories in the meantime. At this stage, I’d have serious suspicions about the other person and be 90% sure they’re ignoring me.

But you can never be too sure, right? Follow up with the next methods to be 100% sure that they’re ignoring you!

Check Their Snap Map

Another way of finding out if someone is ignoring you is checking their Snap Map after messaging them. Send them a direct message and check their Snap Map in the meantime.

If the Snap Map says that they’ve been online recently yet haven’t replied to you, it’s pretty clear they’re ignoring you.

If you don’t know how to check the Snap Map for a user on Snapchat, follow the steps below:

1. Tap on your profile picture

The first thing you should do is open your profile page. To do that, tap on your profile picture in the Chat window. You’ll find your profile picture in the top left corner of the screen!

2. Select the Snap Map

Snapchat app where it shows how to access the Snap Map menu.
Select the Snap Map

Once you open your profile page, scroll down until you find the “Snap Map“. You’ll see a button saying “Enter” on the Snap Map. Tap on it and continue with the guide.

3. Select “Friends

Selecting friends on Snapchat's Snap Map.
Select “Friends

Opening the Snap Map will show you a digitalized map of your general area, and you should start seeing your friends’ icons around the map.

If you don’t find your friend on the Snap Map, go to “Friends” in the lower left corner to find them.

4. Find your friend

Find your friend

Once you open your Friends list on the Snap Map, you’ll see a list containing all your friends at the bottom of the page. To search for a specific person, use the “Search” button.

Once you find them, the Snap Map will say how long ago they were online on Snapchat. The Snap Map updates itself every time a user opens Snapchat.

Unless they have Ghost Mode activated, the Snap Map is like a “Last seen” status that can’t be disabled, so you can use this to see if you’re friend is ignoring you.

They must be ignoring you if they’ve been online recently and still haven’t replied to you.

Check Their Snap Score

By now, you must be certain that your friend is ignoring you. But if you need more proof, you can check their Snap Score.

The Snap Score increases every time that person sends a snap to someone else and receives one back. So, they are talking to someone else on Snapchat.

To check someone’s Snap Score, follow the steps below:

1. Open a chat with your friend

2. Tap their profile picture

Once you open their profile page, you’ll find their Snap Score under their profile picture. You should remember it and check it a couple of hours later.

If their Snap Score has increased in the meantime, it means they’re using Snapchat and talking to someone else but not replying to you.

They’re ignoring you.

Conclusion

To summarize, here’s how to figure out if your friend is ignoring you on Snapchat:

  • They are opening your direct messages but not replying
  • They are posting new stories but don’t interact with you
  • Their Snap Map is constantly updated, which means they are using Snapchat
  • Their Snap Score is increasing, but they don’t reply to you

Using these four methods, you’ll know for sure if your friend is just forgetful or if they’re intentionally ignoring you.
