What Does SNR Mean? (Using SNR Online)

SNR means "Streaks and Recents". It is used on Snapchat. A person's SNR is a list of the people they have recently chatted with and the people they are currently in a "Streak" with. For example:
  • Person A: I sent that picture of you to my SNR.
  • Person B: What! That was between us.
  • Person A: Welcome to social media.
A "Recent" is a recent snap (post). A "Streak" is a run of snaps between two friends over three days without a 24-hour gap between the snaps.

A "Streak" is shown by the fire icon on Snapchat. (The number by the fire icon tells you how many days the "Streak" has been running.) When someone in a "Streak" doesn't send a post for a while and the "Streak" is at risk of coming to an end, an hour-glass icon appears to encourage the participants to keep it going.

In the field of telecommunications, SNR means "Signal to Noise Ratio".
