    Snapchat's new update has started a international uproar with everyone hating and complaining about how hard and inconvenient it is. People are procrastinating about not using the app and using their recent rival Instagram, in the photo sharing world.

     “I don't like it and it's very difficult to use’” stated senior Alexis Cullen. She is just one of many that have decided to use other forms of social media to reach her friends near and far.

    If you are not a fan of the new Snapchat update, there has been a petition going around and has become quite the talk of the world. The creator is Nic Rumsey and has become very famous from forming this petition. It has close to 1.2 virtual signatures.

    “Yes i would go and sign the petition because i hate the layout of the new Snapchat” stated senior Cristen Quillen. People dislike the most about the new update is the “Stories” revamp. It makes it so the people you snap are dispersed depending on how often they post stories on their feed for everyone to see.

     It drives everyone crazy because it makes people think that they are snapping people they aren't and you have to search someone's name every time you want to snap them back.

    Snapchat has drastically affected their income and revenue flow with people switching social media platforms, forgetting about Snapchat. Also other people have tried to turn off automatic updates but most find no luck doing so.

     Some people have even gone as far as getting a hacked Snapchat where the platform still has the previous version, but while doing this it comes with great risks of getting caught which can result in your account being locked for up to 24 hours or even banned.

    To support and sign the petition go to change.org  or the link at the bottom of this article and click the search icon in the top right of the screen. From there search Nic Rumsey and the title of the petition will be “Remove the new Snapchat update.”
