Snapchat user growth slows as it reports financial results

Snapchat user growth slows as it reports financial results

Meanwhile, 26% of US adults aged 18-34 indicate they use Snapchat at least once per day, compared to 3% of those aged 35 and older.

What's more, Snaps and Chats are going to be ordered chronologically on the Friends page again, instead of being organised algorithmically. The same is true with Stories from friends, which now (re) appear on the right side of the interface.

Friends' Stories will remain separate from branded content, just as they were in the last Snapchat redesign.

Snapchat started to roll out its second redesign in six months to iPhone users late on Thursday in the hopes of winning back the users it alienated with the overhaul it introduced earlier this year.

"We learned that combining watching Stories and communicating with friends into the same place made it harder to optimize for both competing behaviors", he said.

Satisfaction levels for the app among current users aged 18-34 has followed a similar trajectory.

BoE Strongly Expected to Leave Rates on Hold
The bank's quarterly economic forecasts suggest the next increase may not happen until the latter part of this year, though. But these expectations can change rapidly - less than a month ago, the probability of a hike today was as high as 90 pct.

The revamp of its app, unveiled late past year, was widely met with a negative response by users, and share prices were sent tumbling when reality star Kylie Jenner voice her disapproval of the new look and layout. A Change.org petition concerning the update attracted more than 1.2 million signatures from disgruntled users.

Now, Snapchat is trying to make amends and it has released a new update for its app which brings it closer to the previous look and feel.

Snapchat rolled out several more minor changes since the previous controversial update, created to make the app simpler to navigate for users while also separating friends from brands.

CEO Spiegel initially said that while he knew changes were likely to be, "disruptive to our business in the short term", he opined that, "We're willing to take that risk for what we believe are substantial long-term benefits to our business". It waited for the time when the users would eventually adapt to the changes, although that didn't happen.

The redesign hit a nerve with a lot of users. We'll have to wait and see!
