The idea of paying for services on social media naturally rubs many people the wrong way, but Snapchat Plus users see no issue with it. The paid service of the original app is said to provide users with features that “enhance and customize your Snapchat experience.” The features range from Ghost trails on the map to the Friend Solar System with their own emojis, and the eye emoji has left people inquiring about its meaning.
So, what does the eyes mean on Snapchat Plus?
The perks of being a Snapchat Plus user is that all emojis and features are very simple to decode. The eyes on Snapchat Plus are pretty easy to understand.
According to Snapchat Support, the eyes on the platform represent the “Story Rewatch Indicator.” The app goes into further detail and explains that this emoji use is to strictly inform users that their story has been viewed more than once by the same person.
Of course, the eyes emoji doesn’t deviate from the classic way of finding out who has tuned in to your story, since a specific number is shown. The only difference is that the number next to the eyes emojis does not represent the number of times your story has been viewed, per Snapchat. It simply represents how many times friends have rewatched your story. Hence the name, Story Rewatch Indicator.
Keep in mind, the number next to the eyes emoji shows how many friends rewatched your story, not how many times they did. So, if one friend rewatches your story five times, it will only count as one rewatch.
In order to find out how many people watched your story, you’ll need to tap on your story which will show three icons with numbers: the eyes emoji, an arrow icon, and an icon with a dot and a circle around it. The latter icon mentioned shows how many times your stories have been viewed.
