Ask Mike Anything:

Question: Is there a way to tell if someone you are following on Snapchat is following you back?

Answer: The answer is yes.

1) If you are watching someone’s story and you see the option to flip up and Chat at the bottom of the screen, then they are following you.

2) If you see SnapScore (numbers) on person’s profile, they are following you
