Snapchat is adjusting its design following user backlash

"When we separated friends' Stories from creator Stories [last November], we also moved them to the left side of the camera and merged them into the Chat feed".

After the service announced and then began introducing a large-scale redesign of its app late past year, more than a million people signed a petition calling for the app to switch back. The same is true with Stories from friends, which now (re) appear on the right side of the interface.

Snapchat is rolling out another redesign for its iOS app following a less-than-successful effort from a few months back.

Snapchat rolled out several more minor changes since the previous controversial update, created to make the app simpler to navigate for users while also separating friends from brands.

"We learned that combining watching Stories and communicating with friends into the same place made it harder to optimise for both competing behaviours", Snapchat CEO Evan Spiegel said at the start of the month, The Verge reports. Although very popular among its predominantly young user base, it has stalled in its growth.

Trump Urges West Virginia Republicans to Oppose Blankenship
President Donald Trump has insisted his campaign did not collude with Russian Federation to help him win the election. Blankenship has taken aim at Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell with racially charged accusations of corruption.

Kylie Jenner, who expressed her displeasure with Snapchat's new layout earlier this year, likely contributed to Snapchat's brand bashing.

Satisfaction levels for the app among current users aged 18-34 followed a similar trajectory, the market research firm found.

More than a million people signed a petition calling for the 2018 Snapchat update to be reversed, and it appears that the company has finally chose to act. Instagram has undoubtedly taken over the social media landscape and Snapchat will need something much more powerful than a redesign to come back into the game, increasing investor pressure as time goes on. We completely understand the new Snapchat has felt uncomfortable for many'.

In order to better appeal to advertisers and maximize profit, a Snapchat redesign was introduced that was wildly unpopular with the majority of users. We'll have to wait and see!
