Stories are no longer ordered chronologically. Instead they are ranked based on your most recent interactions. It also takes a few more steps to rewatch a story. The option to rewatch a post isn’t available right after viewing. You now have to go to the user’s profile to get a second peak.
Furthermore, the friends section now contains snaps, direct messages and group chats all on one page as opposed to separate ones as before. And to manage your own stories, you now have to tap the Snapchat logo to access the camera and to see your story views and deleted snaps.
As the alterations appeared, many took to social media to express their displeasure. Several said they hated it, reacting with GIFs and emojis.
I don’t tweet ever. But this #snapchatupdate is horrible. @Snapchat please change it back! I’m begging you. I didn’t want this update, just woke up to it. PEOPLE, DO NOT UPDATE. I REPEAT, DO NOT UPDATE!
