Duplicating is usually fine for most situations. Snapshot is specifically when you're worried about making changes to a clip that pushes changes out to each instance (eg: a multiclip or compound clip).

For example, if you do an edit and then later open the multiclip and adjust the color for one of the angles, that change will be reflected in all the instances of that angle in your sequence. Or if you create a compound clip with layered sound effects and decide to turn off one of the sounds, every instance of that compound clip in your sequence will now reflect that change.

If you duplicate a sequence and make any of the above changes, those changes will be reflected in BOTH sequences because there is still a parent/child relationship between multiclips and compounds in any sequences you've edited them into.

This is NOT true for snapshots. If you snapshot a sequence, then it will remain exactly the same in the snapshot even if you make changes to a compound or multiclip.
