Snapchat is a popular communication app used by many people. It makes texting people very easy by taking a quick easy picture and adding text, making texting more fun and interactive. Users could also post pictures to their story which lets all their friends’ access it.
The previous version of the app loaded snapchats chronologically and dedicated a whole page to other friends stories.
Their newest update combines stories and snapchats into one page, making it extremely busy and hard to know what is happening. “I can barely talk to friends without snapchat moving them to the bottom of my friends list.” Sophomore Jack Lomau said. They also removed the chronological order that snapchats loaded in, it now loads old snapchats at the top, making it difficult to hold a conversation with people. These changes are strongly disliked by users and many feel that the update was very unnecessary.
Snapchat has gotten lots of negative feedback on the App Store and other media websites, Kylie Jenner even said on Twitter.
“Sooo does anyone else not open Snapchat anymore? Or is it just me… ugh this is so sad.”
This tweet made Snapchat’s stock value drop 1.3 Billion dollars. Their rating on the App Store has also dropped from 3.3 to 2 stars. Snapchat even confirmed they would undo this new update on Feb. 20th and they lied and did not undo the update.by
