Snapchat redesign causes uproar as users call on Snap to revert to the old design

Users are not happy with the latest Snapchat update. The company has broadly rolled out a major redesign of its application, and now it is seeing a massive uproar on social media, with users begging for Snap to roll back the update.

Over 600,000 Snapchat users signed a petition on asking the company to revert back to the old version of the app. Taking things a step farther, a fake tweet promising that Snap would revert to the old redesign after 50,000 retweets, is currently approaching 1.4 million retweets.

The new layout rolled out in November to a small number of users, but it seems the company pushed it to mass market over the weekend. It’s a major departure from previous Snapchat designs, and was supposed to be easier for users to navigate, however, users are finding it more difficult and cluttered.
