Snapchat is Redesigning its Redesign to Highlight Friends' Stories

As you can see in the below screenshot, the design now being tested puts content from Friends at the top of the Discover page, followed by subscriptions and other algorithmically-generated content.

Recode was the first to report on the tweaks, which have been confirmed by the company.

When messaging app Snapchat redesigned its UI past year, users got upset.

However, the new update is expected to come with one difference which could keep the "celebrity content" and the user's "friends' content" separated in different sections on the "Discover" page.

Boston Scientific Corporation (BSX)
The stock performed -28.46% to a low over the previous 50 Days and showed performance of 5.78% to its 50 Day high level. Moreover, Invest Counselors Of Maryland has 0.04% invested in Chevron Corporation (NYSE:CVX) for 5,790 shares.

After drawing criticism from users worldwide about its controversial redesign, Snapchat appears to be changing a few things back to its old model.

The camera company has started to test design tweaks that would combine stories of celebrities with those of users friends on a single page (as it was before the redesign). High profile celebrity Snapchat addicts including Chrissy Teigen and Kylie Jenner also voiced unfavourable opinions about the redesign. The redesign reportedly caused a drop in traffic of up to 50% for many publishers who post content on the platform's Discover section, according to a report from The Motley Fool.

In a statement, Snap spokesperson said that the company is always working to respond to the wishes of its users and they will continue to test and add updates which they hope will users the best experience while using Snapchat. The company however gave very little indication that they will act on the outcry.
