Here's a guide to what all of Snapchat's trophies mean.

Social media often feels like a contest, and thanks to Snapchat's trophy system, it now actually has rewards. 

You've most likely unlocked a few trophies accidentally while Snapchatting. They're cute little emoji that stack up in your trophy case. Snapchat trophies are an ingenious ploy to get you to engage with the app more, a way of rewarding you for trying new things and sharing more on the platform. But just because it's obvious, that doesn't make them any less fun to collect. 

Unless you're a power user, you've most likely never seen them all. That ends now. Here's our guide to Snapchat trophies.
