Navigating the social dynamics of an app like Snapchat can be challenging.
Like any social network, Snapchat has its own unspoken code of conduct that can seem like an utter mystery to outsiders. Some people are barely learning which way to swipe when they inadvertently commit their first Snapchat faux pas, much less have any idea about things like the meaning of a streak. We spoke to 17 teens about Snapchat etiquette, the app's universal dos and don'ts, and how to become a top-notch snapper. Here are all the etiquette tips you need to know.

Snapchat streaking means sending consecutive snaps back and forth directly with someone for as long as you can.
Snapchat rewards streaks with certain emojis based on the amount of time you've been streaking. Make it a conversation. Having a streak with someone you don't really know is kind of odd.
