Recently, there has been a new update on Snapchat that has caused quite the ruckus in the teenage population. Normally, updates are supposed to be improvements, but this update has concerned many users and thrown everybody off. It has made the formerly user-friendly app hard to use and relatively unorganized.

Although Snapchat refuses to change back to the old format, many people are still trying to find a way to get rid of this update. There are ways people discovered to get rid of the new format, but this fix is only temporary.

Although it is not ideal, people have started to get adjusted to the update and get used to it. FHS freshman, Alyssa Ansay, stated that when she “first got the update, which happened automatically without my consent, I thought my social life was ending, I didn’t understand any of the new controls and everything looks very cramped. Now, I’ve finally gotten used to it. It’s not nearly as good as the original version, but it’s tolerable.” Alyssa does not believe the update was worth it, but it is okay to use.

“The new Snapchat update is terrible and makes everything a lot more complicated,” says Daniel Meneses, FHS freshman, “it worked really well before and everyone liked it and now that they have changed it, it is so bad that people are deleting Snapchat. I hope that they switch it back soon.” Daniel does not appreciate the update and wants the older version to be brought back.

As evident, Snapchat’s new “upgrade” was definitely a downgrade. Snapchat has a reputation for being one of the most used social media apps that users have always appreciated. As time goes on, users will hopefully adjust to this new layout and get their Snapchat habits back to par.
