The new version of Snapchat sucks. There, I said it. Now you probably haven’t been able to visit any tech news site in the past few weeks without seeing something about the new version of Snapchat, but I’ve been wondering what all the fuss was about, and this week I was graced with the presence of the new update!

I wasn’t an avid user of Snapchat before, a few snaps here and there directly between friends and I would occasionly scroll through the stories feed but oh boy does the new update ruin all of that. Upon first open I was definitely a bit taken aback by how little had changed (upon initial impression) but the more and more I’ve used it over the past week, the more and more I’ve realised how much less content I’ve been watching. I still use it for sending Snaps directly to friends but I don’t think I’ve watched a single story since! I still don’t understand why some stories are on the left and some are on the right?

Despite peoples best efforts, the update is more than likely here to stay.
