The game might be up as Instagram Stories tests screenshot notifications

SnapChat users have flocked to an online petition calling for the app to reverse its new design

Selfie lovers recently launched several petitions aimed at 'Making Snapchat Great Again', which were prompted by an update which made users swipe right to see friends' stories and snaps instead of left.

Many users are disappointed with the latest update to the app that redesigned everything and moved a lot of the content within the app around. The feature is also no different from the way that Snapchat already operates.

As the Guardian reported, more than 800,000 people have signed an online petition expressing their dissatisfaction with the redesign-in which media content has been separated from content from friends, among other changes.

Snapchatters have spent much of the past few weeks grumbling about a new update which brought huge changes to the app. Now if say, your grandma, wants to check out what's happening downtown she can fire up the ol' desktop, head to map.snapchat.com and watch app user's uploaded snaps.

Facebook, the owner of Instagram, attempted to purchase Snapchat in 2013 for a reported $3bn (£2.2bn) Following the failed bid, Mark Zuckerberg set about using Instagram to undercut Snapchat's key features.

This Snapchat update is the worst thing to happen since U2's album downloaded on everyone's phone.

She further said that it's a possibility that once the users get use to the redesign they would again start using it as heavily as before. However, the Snapchat support team tweeted that these unofficial ways of getting older version of the app are temporary and would result in getting the users completely locked out of their accounts or in losing Memories. Users can't find what they're looking for and although the update was created to make the app easier to navigate, users complain that it achieved quite the contrary.
