Snapchat Redesign Under Criticism Among Users

Over 800,000 people have now signed a petition on change.org to convince Snapchat to revert its recent redesign. Since after the Snapchat's overhaul it has been under criticism from users.

Selfie lovers recently launched several petitions aimed at 'Making Snapchat Great Again', which were prompted by an update which made users swipe right to see friends' stories and snaps instead of left.

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