The petition to undo latest Snapchat update hits a million signatures

Snapchat Faces Backlash Over Redesign

So much so that as of this write over 800,000 people have signed a change.org petition to help convince snap inc.to change the app back to the basics. Before, when users would want to watch these "stories" they would have them all together on a content page, now "friends" are in one area and publishers/media in another, called 'Discover.' Other reorganization has also taken place, which many users have found confusing, hence the petition.

A petition calling on Snapchat to reverse a controversial app update has now been signed by more than one million people.

The changes made by Snapchat had been meant to separate chats with friends from interactions from branded content that includes that of celebrities and influencers.

Yet the redesign, which was partially geared towards making Snapchat more accessible and attractive to new users, has led to complaints it has become "more difficult" to navigate. Model and wife of United States singer, John Legend, Chrissie Teigen tweeted that she didn't like feeling that her followers no longer felt like friends as a result.

Later this year, bottled water will be added as a featured beverage choice on Happy Meal menu boards, however, it will cost extra. And that's not all, the fast food chain is also limiting the amount of saturated fat, added sugar, and sodium in each meal.

Its update has been met with thousands of complaints, with many saying the app is now too hard to use.

Some users have followed a six-step procedure, which involves turning off automatic updates and reinstalling the app in order to get the "old" style Snapchat back.

"We hope the community will enjoy it once they settle in", the firm said.

"But I don't think this large Silicon Valley company is going to take notice of a petition". Snapchat influencers will now be able to strike better deals with advertisers who are always keen to understand which audiences and locations they will reach through the partnerships.
