Early February of 2018 marked the end of Snapchat as teens know it. After releasing a major update, the app was criticized with tons of backlash. The app’s user interface drastically changed, leaving users less than satisfied. Before the update, users could easily access recent stories and the Discover page separate from chats. Now, the two have been combined into one page, while Discover gets its own distinct page. This new interface is problematic in the time of which a user uploads. Stories are put in random order, while those who recently messaged you are put on top. This makes it difficult to find stories, especially if someone has many friends added.

Many users are furious and aren’t adapting to the change very well. As a member of the Snapchat community, I myself would say that the new UI is difficult to navigate when trying to find stories. This problem discourages me from watching my friend’s stories and decreases my time on Snapchat. 800,000 users have signed a petition to revert back to the old Snapchat. However, a member of team Snapchat simply responded with,”Updates as big as this one can take a little getting used to, but we hope the community will enjoy it once they settle in.” As far as the eye can see, despite the majority rule, Snapchat will not be changing its UI anytime soon.

Some people have switched to Instagram’s stories, where a new feature that allows people to see whose story you screenshotted has surfaced. Torn between two stories, people might just have to choose between Instagram and Snapchat. Will Snapchat make a comeback, or will the face of a new era begin?
