Everyone is still reeling over the newest Snapchat update. For those of you lucky people out there who haven’t yet been forced into this new format I’ll explain the frustration. Instead of keeping your Snapchat stories on one side of the camera and your sent and received Snapchats on the other, they’re intermixed. This has caused an uproar amongst Snapchat users and studies show that 80% of all Tweets about Snapchat are negative.
The main complaint amongst Snapchatters is that it has caused people to send a Snapchat to someone they didn’t intend to because people who have just added to their story go to the top of your feed along with those who have sent you a photo.
This frustration has not gone unnoticed by Snapchat CEO Evan Spiegel although he has made it perfectly clear that he is not going to change back to the old format. Plenty of Tweets have been posted about how many retweets it would take to get Snapchat to change but they have all been debunked.
Sadly, things aren’t looking up for the app and its users unless a change is implemented.
