If you want someone on the list, you have to increase the interaction with them. You can send them messages and snaps and also encourage them to pass on the same. When this interaction continues over a few days, the contact will be marked as your best friend by Snapchat.

If you are a serious user of Snapchat, then this will be possible with the contact you interact with on a daily basis. When someone becomes your Super BFF, you can add a snap streak emoji next to that contact’s name and that will stay as long as you maintain the streak.
