According to the Snapchat Support page, Snapchat points are earned by sending and receiving Snaps, and posting Stories. The amount of points you earn for each Snap you send and Story you post, however, is “super-secret.” Snapchat adds up the number of Snaps you send and receive, the Stories you post, “and a couple other factors,” to determine your overall Snapchat score. Unfortunately, without the actual equation, we don’t know for certain how the points work and add up exactly. But, in essence, the more you use Snapchat to send Snaps and post Stories, the higher your Snapchat score will be.
