Snapchat gives creators new audience analytics, including views, engagement, and demographics

Snapchat Gets the Upper Hand Over Facebook Snapchat faces backlash after app redesign
Doris Mccormick | 14 February, 2018, 20:02

The redesigned app was rolled out to 40 million users as of last week, and all its users will have it by the end of this quarter.

Users are so upset that more than 900,000 people have signed a Change.org petition to help convince Snap, Inc.to change the app back to the way it was before the latest update.

The petition states that instead of making the app easier the update has made the app and many of its offered features more hard. The feature is also no different from the way that Snapchat already operates.

The update marks the first time Snap - which until recently made few concessions to the influencers other social media platforms court - has made these types of details widely available.

The Snapchat redesign might not seem so bad for users who are just now trying out the app, but existing users find it annoying, confusing, and cluttered.

Shonduras concludes that "i will be the first to admit i was done with snapchat and fell away past year. but this is the change that both creators and brands needed to get back on board! and i hope it works!"

Snapchatters have spent much of the past few weeks grumbling about a new update which brought huge changes to the app.

Twitter was even provided by the steps from users to uninstall the update and to get the older version back.

During the early days when Snapchat was used for the sole objective of exchanging nudes between two people, screenshot notifications were designed as a deterrent.

Twitter was bombarded with the angry reactions of many teens who love Snapchat and is their favourite application.

Debra Aho Williamson, an analyst who follows social media for the research firm eMarketer, said it was too soon to judge user reaction to the redesign.
