Remove the new Snapchat Update

With the release of the new Snapchat update, many users have found that it has not made the app easier to use, but has in fact made many features more difficult. There is a general level of annoyance among users and many have decided to use a VPN app, or are using other risky apps or steps, to go back to the old Snapchat as that’s how annoying this new update has become. Many ‘new features’ are useless or defeats the original purposes Snapchat has had for the past years. Please note: with the most recent update (February 2018) text fonts were released, and a number of users believe that small features like this should be kept in place.  This petition aims to help convince Snap Inc. to change the app back to the basics, before the new 2018 update.  ——— Media Companies please feel free to reach out to me via social media to discuss the petition.

bring back the old Snapchat!

Over the past week, Snapchat has rolled out its new design. It’s messy, ugly and hard to navigate. Speaking to others, I’ve already discovered the anger and frustration that many of my friends - other users have had with the updated version. Theres no way to roll back to the old version, and there needs to be a way for people to ‘opt out’ of this! Pls sign this so we can get Snapchat back!

Hey, McDonald's, please buy only biodegradable straws and save turtles from going extinct!

A major problem in today’s world is our plastic usage. Plastic never biodegrades. This means that it will stay forever. It also makes 100-500 million pounds of carbon emissions. Plastic straws are one of the biggest ways that we use plastic. We use more than 500 million straws every single day in the U.S. alone! Fast food stores are the main source of straw. For example, McDonalds contributes to 12% of all the plastic straws. I had an idea that if McDonald’s would only use biodegradable, it would cut down on a lot of that plastic trash. Other chains will follow the lead and one by one we can convert all plastic straw to biodegradable straw.  Plastic straws hurt the environment and wildlife. Straws just pile up in landfills and in the oceans. There are places where you can actually walk on the ocean because of the enormous amount of plastic piled up. It also hurts wildlife. Birds can think that plastic straws look like worms. Turtles can think that straws look like stretched out shrimp. When they eat them, they die from the toxins in the oil that the straws were made from. It also hurts underprivileged kids who don't have proper housing. They can wander about on shores, but all the plastic can make them sick. Why do we do this? We are ruining the planet!!! Think about your own kids and grandchildren. Is this the type of planet that you want to leave for them! Do you want children to worry about eating seafood because of the amount of plastic trash in our fish? Do you want us to not be able to go to the beach because of the amount of trash? Why are you leaving us children a planet of plastic and trash??? There is a solution though. If McDonald's and other franchises stopped using plastic straws, a lot of plastic trash would be avoided. If people still need straws, they can get biodegradable straws. The biodegradable straws would biodegrade and wouldn't hurt the environment. So join me! Join in saving the world for your children! Please sign the petition, and support the idea that McDonald's should get only biodegradable straws!!

Undo The New Snapchat Update

Snapchat decided to eliminate the stories page and merge “ Popular Stories” with News on the “Discover Page”. Nothing is in chronological order anymore, stories are hard to access, & conversations are not in chronological order. Snapchat needs to change it back to the way it was before the update. Too over complicated.

Snapchat For Windows

For the longest time ever, Snap Inc. has denied us, Windows Community, the privilege of using their app and services. We understand that we are a very very small community but that doesn't mean that we don't exist. Snapchat is about bringing people together, making people happy. And they're denying us this service just because were different or we chose a different path.

Allow People To Change Snapchat Usernames

Although Snapchat started around 2011, it didn't pick up speed until around late 2012. Almost half of Snapchat's users were in middle school at that time. On behalf of all those users, let me start out by saying, some of us didn't know what the hell we were doing in middle school. Now most of us are in high school and college, and we find our usernames quite embarassing. We weren't all smart enough to use our names at the time. Some of us used our previous usernames from Roblox or Minecraft. Yes, that includes me. I thought that a silly username I used for my gaming accounts would be good for my Snapchat. Newsflash! It's not, really it's not. Whenever I give someone my Snapchat now I'm embarrassed of my old username. As you grow, your username should grow with you. I'm not going to release my snapchat for privacy reasons, but it is very embarrassing and I don't want to be known by that name forever. I don't want to go through my college years with my name, I don't want my future coworkers to see that name, and most of all I don't want cute guys reading that name. It is not fair that I have to live by a mistake, that wasn't even a mistake at the time, until my Snapchat-using years are over. I have more people on my Snapchat, then I have in my contacts list, so creating a new account is not an option for me. I have people on my snapchat that live overseas, in other countries, or even just in different states. I will never be able to see them again. The only way I get to communicate with them is through Snapchat. So I'm never going to create a new Snapchat, but I would really love to create a new username. Seriously, I didn't know what the hell I was doing in middle school!

Undo the new Snapchat update

Hello, my name is Abbi Foglietta. I am 17 years old and an avid user of Snapchat. I, along with every other high schooler I have spoken to, believe that the new snapchat update should be undone, or at the very least, the stories page should be brought back. I am voicing this opinion only because I love Snapchat. As a high schooler, I speak for many when I say that Snapchat is the primary means of communication between friends. Updates have always made the app more fun, easier, and user-friendly. I anticipated such when I heard there was a new version of the app. With that being said, to say I am disappointed with this update is an understatement. My unwavering, devoted love to Snapchat is dwindling more than it has, ever, since downloading the app. But if you love something, and you really care about it, you’re going to try and keep it around, and I am not ready to give up on Snapchat so easily.  Many familiar features, like the stories page, have vanished, leaving distracting advertisements on the discover page. Now, users must scroll through sent messages to find stories, which is extremely time consuming and wasteful when compared to the convenient display of stories in the prior version of the app. In my opinion, stories feel less exciting than they did before after this update. The appeal of adding to or watching a story is undermined by coupling the feature with messages. I stand by the opinion that the stories page should come back. Other features, such as bitmojis, have been emphasized to the point where the app feels juvenile. I obviously know what my friends that I am snapchatting look like, why do I need a cartoon of their face right next to my messages with them? To remind me? Furthermore, bitmojis take up an awful lot of space, detracting from the familiar square and arrow designating that somebody has opened your chat or sent you one. The bold text is somewhat helpful, but the familiar pink and purple squares and triangles are difficult to recognize and see.  Maybe you don’t have the same issues with the new update, but even if you dislike one aspect of the new update, I urge you to sign this petition so that changes may be made to help us all.  Personally, not one high schooler I have met enjoys the update. Snapchat should give the option of keeping the pre-updated version, or work out a compromise with their users. For the sake of keeping their beloved users, Snapchat should consider revising this update so that it is more similar to the previous version.

Bring the Old Snapchat Back

As many have unfortunately already found out, Snapchat's February 2018 completely changed the app. This is bullshit! Instead of making it more stable, less laggy, or improving the camera, Snapchat completely changed the entire interface to a confusing mess. In order to promote their failing Discover feature, Snapchat took away the stories tab so now users can choose between either swiping left to get to everything they want (chat, stories, groupchats, etc.) or swiping left to swiping right to something they never wanted nor used. Consumers have already been disappointed to find Instagram move away from chronological order, and Snap was the last app that maintained this feature. Getting rid of it in favor of an algorithm mixed with a terrible design is consumer-unfriendly and a slap in the face to users who use the app despite its many flaws. Also, the emojis that show our streaks are tiny now, making maintaining streaks and best friends basically pointless. Give the people what they want and bring back the old Snapchat!

Remove the new Snapchat Update

To Nic and all of the Snapchatters who signed this petition, We hear you, and appreciate that you took the time to let us know how you feel. We completely understand the new Snapchat has felt uncomfortable for many. By putting everything from your friends in one place, our goal was to make it easier to connect with the people you care about most. The new Friends page will adapt to you and get smarter over time, reflecting who you’re most likely to be Snapping with at that moment. This same personalization is also true of the new Discover, which will adapt to you the more that you use it. Beginning soon on iOS, and with Android in the coming weeks, we are introducing tabs in Friends and Discover, which will make it easier to find the Stories that you want, when you want them. Once you receive the update, you’ll be able to sort things like Stories, Group Chats, and Subscriptions, allowing you to further customize your own experience on the app. This new foundation is just the beginning, and we will always listen closely to find new ways to make the service better for everyone. We are grateful for your enthusiasm and creativity. We are very excited for what’s ahead. Love, Team Snapchat
