:3. A symbol meant to represent the cat face made by anime characters when they say something clever, or sarcastic, or are commenting on something cute. Used to indicate coyness, cleverness, anime-geekiness, cuteness and funny (if not questionably oafy) behaviour.
Accordingly, what does a 3 mean in texting?
As others pointed out, <3 resembles a heart, which often stands for 'love' and is commonly used among people who are romantically involved with each other (people who are in a relationship, for example). Two of those emoticons next to each other could mean "Much love", but that's just a guess.
What does the 3 on Snapchat mean?
Smiling face (a normal smile with rosy cheeks): A best friend, but not your number one best friend. Fire (AKA flame emoji or hot emoji): This shows that you have begun a “snapstreak”, by sending this person snaps on consecutive days. If this shows, Snapchat will tell you how many days you've kept up the streak.
