Snapchat does not provide a feature that directly shows the date when someone joined the platform. Unlike some social media platforms that display a ‘joined date’ or similar information on user profiles, Snapchat focuses more on privacy and immediate content sharing, such as snaps and stories, rather than detailed user profiles.
However, there are a few indirect methods you might consider to estimate when someone may have joined Snapchat:
- Check Their Snap Score: A user’s Snap Score is a number that increases with their activity on Snapchat, like sending and receiving snaps. A very high score might suggest that the user has been on Snapchat for a long time. However, this is not a definitive indicator, as some users are more active than others.
- Ask Them Directly: Sometimes the simplest way is to ask the person when they joined Snapchat. This is direct and eliminates the guesswork.
- Look at Saved Snaps or Conversations: If you have been friends with the person on Snapchat for a long time, you might look through saved snaps or conversations. The earliest ones could give you a hint about how long they have been on the platform.
- Social Media Announcements: Sometimes people announce on other social media platforms when they join a new one. You could check their other social media accounts for any mention of joining Snapchat.
- Snapchat Memories: If you have access to their Snapchat Memories (which is unlikely unless they’ve shared this with you), you might find older snaps that indicate how long they’ve been using the service.
Any method other than directly asking the person will likely only give you an approximation, and Snapchat’s privacy policies mean that some information isn’t available to other users at all. Always respect privacy and consent when trying to find information about others on social media platforms.
