People are NOT loving Snapchat‘s latest update.
As you’ve likely noticed, the mobile app recently made some changes to the way the beloved picture sharing platform functions. Specifically, Snapchat took away chronological posting — and people are PISSED about it.
Both the Discover and Stories sections got complete makeovers, making it more difficult to distinguish your friends’ content from posts made by publishers. Now it’s very rare that updates go over well with consumers, but this time, users seem particularly livid.
See some of the negative reactions (below).
#snapchatupdate is horrendous.

Thankfully, it seems that Snapchat is willing to modify its new design to placate users. In fact, one person on Twitter revealed that the company allegedly promised to consider bringing back the old format if he got 50,000 retweets on a post. He shared:
Impressive! It’ll be inneresting to see if Snapchat ACTUALLY brings back the old layout.
We guess we’ll just have to wait and see.
