Redesign here to stay: Snapchat responds to users' disstress

Snapchat stock loses $1.3 billion after Kylie Jenner tweet

A tweet sent by Kylie Jenner Wednesday afternoon criticizing the popular social network has sent the company's stock tumbling 6% Thursday, resulting in the loss of almost $1 billion in market value.

She told her 24.5 million followers she was no longer using Snapchat in a Tweet that said: "Sooo does anyone else not open Snapchat anymore?" More than 1.2 million people have signed a petition on Change.org called "Remove the new Snapchat Update".

Jenner has been one of Snapchat's most influential users.

X Snap unveiled the Snapchat redesign in November, intending to make the Snapchat app easier to use and also appeal more to advertisers.

The app update changed the way stories are sorted in an effort to more clearly distinguish between content from people users know and content from brands and celebrities.

In another tweet she said, "Still love you tho snap.my first love".

"Our design and engineering teams are constantly monitoring the rollout of the redesign and making improvements based on what we learn from our community and their usage of Snapchat". Despite being the so-called queen of the app, the new update has made her, and fans, hate using it.

Well, Snap has officially responded and it's pretty clear: the redesign is here to stay, regardless of what you have to say.

Earlier this month, Snapchat launched a redesign that hasn't been well-received. Now, there's a designated page for publishers and celebrities, and a separate page for friends.

"This new foundation is just the beginning, and we will always listen closely to find new ways to make the service better for everyone", Snap Inc. wrote. The seven-year-old company spent the last year watching as its stock sunk further and further following its $3.4 billion IPO.

Snap was one of the most high-profile public offerings of 2017, but the company soon fell below its IPO price amid concerns about mounting losses, stagnant user growth and fierce competition from Facebook's Instagram.

In the official announcement, the developers confirmed that the new Gif stickers powered by Giphy will be added to the Sticker Picker option which is already found in the Snapchat user interface.
