Snapchat Redesign Under Criticism Among Users

SnapChat update OUTRAGE: Thousands sign petition to revert app to old design Snap Maps now works across the web

But before you panic, consider that Instagram won't be sending push notifications to users when someone screenshots their story. The tech giant, which is on my Facebook, is now testing and new feature that will notify individuals if someone has taken a screenshot of their story. Also consider the fact that, if Instagram ends up rolling out the feature, you too will be able to see whose 'shotting your stories, and what a treat that could be.

The feature is very similar to an early Snapchat feature that would close the picture and alert the sender.

The feature is not yet confirmed for a worldwide roll out.

Instagram has confirmed the testing to TechCrunch, saying in a statement: "We are always testing ways to improve the experience on Instagram and make it easier to share any moment with the people who matter to you".

Horgan rejects retaliation for Alberta's wine ban
This week, her government imposed a ban on about $70-million worth of wine imports from the Western province in response. Still, Johnson said he feels the optics of the dispute between neighbouring provinces isn't positive.

An eMarketer survey released Monday showed Facebook is losing younger users at a faster pace than anticipated, with many switching to applications like Snapchat or the Facebook-owned Instagram.

Instagram Stories are sequences of photos and videos that expire after a day. It was a near carbon-copy of Snapchat Stories.

The move represents part of Snap's push to "separate the social from the media" within its flagship app, which includes an interface redesign that makes a clearer distinction between your Snapchat friends and professional content creators such as brands and celebrities. The company added 8.9 million users during the fourth quarter of 2017 after several quarters of declining user growth rates. Snapchat's DAU increased by 18% over the year when compared to 2016.

According to estimates by the research firm eMarketer, Snapchat will add another 1.9 million new U.S. users under the age of 25 this year.
