One million urge Snapchat roll-back

One million urge Snapchat roll-back

One of the features he may be referring to is the separation between friends" and media "Snapchat Stories, ' which are compilations of short videos that disappear after 24 hours.

"Many 'new features" are useless or defeat the original purposes Snapchat has had for the past years.

Some studies have suggested that the Snapchat redesign is pushing people to Facebook-owned Instagram, which has a rival product called "Stories".

Nic Rumsey, who set up the petition, wrote that some are using Virtual Private Network (VPN) apps - which use servers overseas to mask the location of a device - in order to access the older version of the platform: "That's how annoying this update has become", he said.

This has notoriously made advertisers wary about the platform, but it also causes many top influencers to reconsider their efforts on the app. Influencers need data in order to convince brands to work with them on paid partnership deals.




Now, there's a designated page for publishers and a page for friends.

A growing number of brands have been using Snapchat's Stories to produce creative content for fans, but have been frustrated with the lack of information about their content.

Kylie Jenner asked her Twitter followers what they thought of the changes, and then agreed with a follower who replied that they hated it.

"As expected, it will take time for our community to get used to the changes, but overall, we are pleased with the initial results and will be making the redesign available to our entire community in Q1".

Midha said, however, that he didn't think it likely Snapchat would reverse course. And so far, over a million people signed in agreement.
