Snapchat is still reeling from the backlash that it received after the rollout of its controversial re-design. While the re-design didn’t change the core design of Snapchat, it did bring a huge overhaul of its user interface. So much so that many longtime users were confused as to how they can access certain features which they could previously do without even thinking.
