What does SFS mean on Snapchat?

On Snapchat, "SFS" stands for "Shoutout for Shoutout" or "Snap for Snap," depending on the context of your conversation.

"Shoutout for Shoutout" involves two users agreeing to promote each other's accounts to their respective audiences, aiming for mutual visibility and follower growth. This is similar to "SMO" on Snapchat, where someone asks you to "shout them out" for clout.

"Snap for Snap," meanwhile, refers to the exchange of snaps between users, typically to maintain an ongoing snap streak. It's similar to "SB" on Snapchat, where someone asks you to "snap back" to make sure the streak is not lost.

While it might initially seem confusing that "SFS" has two distinct meanings, it's usually quite straightforward to decipher the intended meaning based on the context of the conversation. Hope you have a clear understanding now.
