Snapchat Stories feed back to chronological order for some users

Snapchat

However, some users are now seeing their Stories in a more traditional reverse-chronological order. It's safe to say that more and more users should see their chronological Snapchat stories restored as time goes on, however, as it was clear from the backlash to the changes that what works for Facebook and Instagram might not necessarily work for this newer type of photo sharing service. We've reached out to Snap (the app's parent company) for comment.

Snapchat may have finally acknowledged that users didn't like some aspects of its total redesign.

"The new update is letting users see stories in reverse chronological order in both of the new designs; the one where there are just stories and tabs, as well as the other where there are separate stories and chat tabs", said a report.

In its drastic new redesign, SnapChat has dropped its dedicated Stories page - dropping the content amongst private messages in a single feed. On the other hand, trusting an app - no matter how intelligent - to decide who and what you'd like to see content from isn't great either, as there's no ideal formula that gives you the best results each and every time.

The strongest opposition party is the formerly far-right Jobbik, which has recast its image as a more moderate nationalist force. Opposition leaders reject Orban's claims that they are controlled by Soros and support mass immigration.

Snapchat made switching to algorithmic sorting the part of its redesign because it had helped Instagram and Twitter boost growth.

Snapchat had claimed that the change resulted in improved "daily active user" growth in Q4 2017. This update has been met with joy and gratitude and this will likely to see their closest friends' posts no matter when or how infrequently they posted.

Although this is coming from someone that can't stand Snapchat, this does seem like a move for the better.

Showing the most recently shared Stories first in the feed makes them predictable and coherent to browse, since it allows users to check-in and see what it happening with their friends right now.
