Snapchat’s New Update Triggers Revolt by Millions of Teens


Last week Snapchat rolled out its biggest redesign since the app launched in 2011. The company split the app into two sections, consolidating friend content on the left side, media content on the right, and installing a slew of other design changes. Snapchat’s massive teen userbase is outraged at the update, and already desperately trying to get the old version back.

A fake tweet claiming that Snapchat would revert back to its old design if it got enough retweets received 1.3 million retweets as of Sunday afternoon and has become the sixth most retweeted tweet of all time. Thousands of other teens spent the weekend tweeting about the update and begging the company to reconsider its choice. Many posted to their Stories about how much they hated the new redesign under the misguided notion that Snapchat might read their messages and reconsider the rollout.

“With the release of the new Snapchat update, many users have found that it has not made the app easier to use, but has, in fact, made many features more difficult,” the plea reads. “Many ‘new features’ are useless or defeat the original purposes Snapchat has had for the past years.”
