Snapchat has a Best Friends Solar System feature, exclusively available for Plus subscribers. Planets are a part of the system and represent the level of your friendship with other users on the app. The app has eight planets, just like the real Solar System.
You are represented by ‘Sun’, and your friends are assigned a ‘Planet’ based on your proximity to Snapchat.
For instance, if someone is your closest Snapchat friend, you’ll notice that they are ‘Mercury’ for you (as Mercury is closest to the Sun in the Solar System).
Similarly, the intensity of the friendship decides which friend gets which planet in your friend’s Solar System. So, Planets represent your list of Best Friends on Snapchat. Pluto is not a part of the feature as it was removed from the Solar System in August 2006.

How Does The Snapchat+ Friends Solar System Work?
Snapchat+ subscribers can access a Friends Solar System representing their Best Friends using various planets such as Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, etc. If you are a Snapchat Plus user, you’ll see a ‘Best Friends’ or ‘Friends’ badge with a gold ring on your friends’ Friendship Profiles.
The ‘Best Friends’ badge means that you both are among each other’s eight closest friends and ‘Friends’ signifies that you are one of their eight closest friends but they are not one of yours. When you tap on this badge with a golden ring, you’ll see your friend sitting on a Planet.
All Snapchat Planets In Order & What They Mean:
Snapchat users are often confused about the Friends Solar System and Planets thing.
