Snapchat: 'We Completely Understand' the Redesign Hate

Snapchat now lets you add Giphy GIFs to your snaps                   By Ida Torres

Snapchat's market value lost $1.3 billion in the wake of Jenner's tweet and a controversial redesign.

One million people signed a petition demanding Snap roll back the change.

This comes after she tweeted earlier in the month about the new update, and how she didn't know how she felt about it.

Snapchat has revealed new updates it would be making on top of its recent redesign following user feedback. "There is a general level of annoyance among users and many have chose to use a VPN app, or are using other risky apps or steps, to go back to the old Snapchat as that's how annoying this new update has become".

Jenner expressed her frustration over the new design in her latest tweet, where she addressed the lack of interaction with the app. Users have complained about this change, and said it's also more hard to find posts from friends you communicate with less frequently.

Snapchat's redesign was aimed at simplifying things for new users, but long-time fans have been less than pleased with the results. Chief among the complaints is the decision to move Stories-publicly available content that can be viewed by a users' friends for 24 hours-into the inbox where direct messages are sent and received.

In addition to the new Tabs feature, Snapchat has added GIFs to the app that will let users include animated stickers on their photos and videos. Although many users joined groups on the platform opposing the new layout, Facebook did not change it back. I'm sure they will, but at the same time, they are running a major risk. Well, it looks like it's going to keep on changing, with an updated statement saying: "This new foundation is just the beginning, and we will always listen closely to find new ways to make the service better for everyone". The page will get "smarter" and be able to tell between the friends that you care about most based on the number of mutual interactions.

"For a very long time, we have been trying to clarify, or at least distinguish, the difference between friends and publishers", Spiegel said in November.
