Ah Snapchat, the app to use when you want to make sure that your sexy duck face pictures stay under your control. For those not in the know Snapchat is a messaging app where the messages disappear after a fixed amount of time. The reason for this is 100% just so that d*ck pics and sexy selfies don’t go making their way back to your significant other/parent/employer/anyone but the person you’re trying to bone.
But it seems that Snapchat done messed up. People are not happy with the latest update which has absolutely trashed the way people scroll through its content.
“Until now, social media has always mixed photos and videos from your friends with content from publishers and creators. While blurring the lines between professional content creators and your friends has been an interesting Internet experiment, it has also produced some strange side-effects (such as fake news) and made us feel like we have to perform for our friends rather than just express ourselves,” wrote Snapchat in a blog last year.
That sounds, in principle, like a not bad thing to do. But, uh, it turns out the reality is not great. People have instantly revealed that their very unhappy with the change with most people calling it ‘ugly’. Now loads of people have taken to Twitter to announce that they're deleting the app and never going back. You can get a taster of some of these tweets below but it's pretty much just people kicking off over the changes. It's not clear if this'll actually hurt snapchat or if people will just get over it, but whatever the case for the time being it doesn't look very good.
