Snapchat Update Generates Lots of Hate
This is a story that might not disappear after 24 hours.
Yesterday, Snapchat automatically updated millions of accounts across the globe. Without warning, users woke up to a different-looking version of the app, that is apparently messier and more confusing. This update has caused many longtime Snapchat fans to not only publicly complain, but also abandon the app for good.

@Snapchat @snapchatsupport how is it that majority of your clients HATE the new update and y’all still refuse to revert back or even change it. #MakeSnapchatGreatAgain

According to The Guardian, the update has made over 700,000 people angry enough to sign a change.org petition requesting that Snapchat change their format back. The petition is aiming to reach one million signatures, and can be signed here.
Within hours, several videos have surfaced which explain both how to remove the update and how to cope with it. Watch them here:
