Snapchat redesign sparks backlash among some users

Snapchat redesign sparks backlash among some users

A petition on Change.org is also making rounds, aiming to determine the company to roll back the redesign, and more than 670,000 Snapchat users have already signed it.

The petition states that instead of making the app easier the update has made the app and many of its offered features more hard.

The move represents part of Snap's push to "separate the social from the media" within its flagship app, which includes an interface redesign that makes a clearer distinction between your Snapchat friends and professional content creators such as brands and celebrities.

The description goes on to add that numerous new features in this update are either useless or go against what Snapchat achieved so far. Users have complained that the redesigned app is now less user-friendly and hard to figure out.

The update marks the first time Snap - which until recently made few concessions to the influencers other social media platforms court - has made these types of details widely available.

Twitter was bombarded with the angry reactions of many teens who love Snapchat and is their favourite application. It could also help open up new opportunities for those who want to monetize their accounts - another longtime complaint for Snapchat influencers.

The tweets go on and on, but you get the idea.

Twitter users offered tips on how to uninstall the update to get the old version of the application.

Interest in Facebook is waning among young Americans, eMarketer said in its note on Monday, estimating a 5.8 percent decline this year in Facebook U.S. users aged 18 to 24 years. Users can't find what they're looking for and although the update was created to make the app easier to navigate, users complain that it achieved quite the contrary.
