Snapchat redesign backfires: Users bash new update on Twitter

Snapchat Stories Page

As a part of their strategic re-design, Snapchat made some changes to the Snapchat Stories Page and boy it has pissed users off massively.

According to the recent update, the story page where users upload their photos and videos unfortunately has disappeared completely. Instead your personal stories and your friends’ stories are now on one screen. Also, on the Discover page along with the news there will be random popular videos.

Users have not taken to these changes kindly and are flooding Twitter with utter disappointment.

Snapchat has rolled out their new features to boost the traffic. According to The Daily Beast , Snapchat’s biggest features Such as Snap Map and Discover are not blooming very well. The app has been under immense pressure ever since Instagram Stories was launched, causing the former to change a number of their fundamentals.

Snapchat revealed that they would redesign their features in November 2017 as the company faced slow revenue growth. But they assured that the redesign would be user -friendly for old snapchatters  and it would be very easy to connect to content creators.

According to Snapcaht founder Evan Spiegel, “There is a strong likelihood that the redesign of our application will be disruptive to our business in the short term, and we don’t yet know how the behavior of our community will change when they begin to use our updated application.”
