On November 7, 2017 Snapchat has said that they will be changing the order of your feed to show moments that *they* think you care about the most, rather than displaying your feed in chronological order.
After Snapchat's recent failure with Spectacles, they got destroyed by Wall Street today after a horrible Q3 earnings where revenue and user growth fell well under expectations. Snap lost nearly $40 million on unsold Spectacles.
"We're redesigning the app to be easier for older people to use, and its using data to power an algorithmically sorted Stories feed instead of the strictly reverse chronological one it uses now.
If Snap screws up these redesigns and new features, it could see even more teens abandon the app. There's a big risk that teens say they liked the old Snapchat better, and might as well just use Instagram. Spiegel and Snap have historically relied on instincts rather than data to design products. But now those instincts have led Snap astray, and it will require a philosophical shift as well as a product one to save the company."

Is this something that the community really wants? After what happened when Facebook & Instagram switched to algorithm-based feeds, it's certainly not something that we will want! At the very least, shouldn't the community be able to opt-in, rather than having it mandated that this is how we will now see our feed?
Snapchat have advised they will listen to our feedback so that they get this right. So, if you DO NOT want your feed to be presented in an order that you don't have any control over and would prefer to have it presented in the current chronological format or - AT LEAST - have the choice to sort your feed the way you want, please sign the petition so that Snapchat can take our feedback on board.
