Snapchat Stalkers Are Not Happy With the New App Update

Some hilarious memes came in response to Snapchat's new update

People are freaking out over this new Snapchat update and here is why...

No more Snap besties!?

The mobile application which allows users to send and receive photos "privately" to their selected friends recently added updates in which they eliminated the 'top three best friends.'

This feature showed under a user's name along with a score of how many snaps they have sent and received (as shown below). Best friends were updated regularly and represented the friends users Snapped with most frequently.

I have a 14-year-old sister who has Snapchat. She said her and her friends don't like the new updates because having the 'top three best friends' list was a way to prove and show off who your besties were.
Oh-em-gee! High school kids are cute.

On the other hand, some people in relationships are not feeling the new update because now it doesn't show the names of people who their significant other is sending/receiving pictures from.

Since Best Friends are now private and not viewable, the Twitter universe had a field day tweeting about this:

No more Snapchat stalking! Oh no!

Keep hope alive!

Well, don't worry. Internet Entrepreneur, CEO and co-founder of Snapchat Evan Spiegal tweeted out:

"We'll bring back BFs soon. A few higher-profile friends wanted to keep their usernames private - we'll come up with a better way to do that."

See, I don't have my phone set to automatically update every app. So, I'm still using an older Snapchat version for now.

Another thing... if you have to constantly stalk your boyfriend/girlfriend's Snapchat then maybe you shouldn't be in that relationship.

Snapchat "Discover"

The new app update also came with a "Discover" feature.

Snapchat launched this new feature that highlights stories and videos provided both by outside publishers and by Snapchat's in-house team of journalists and videographers.

The new service is ad-supported, with Snapchat selling ads against media provided by networks such as ESPN, Vice, and CNN, as well as its own content. "Discover" features videos, articles, and photos picked by these networks.

ESPN tweeted out, "We're excited to be a part of Discover, starting today! Update the app & swipe left to see our sports Snaps"

According to a blog post on Snapchat's Tumbler page, users can tap to open an "edition," swipe left to browse the snaps inside, or swipe up on a Snap for expanded content.
