It's sad to me. I kinda liked Snapchat because it was the lightest form of social media, and they were the first underdogs to scare Facebook. Then they gave the middle finger to all their users by pushing an obviously unpopular (and objectively bad) redesign, just in time for Facebook to finish blatantly copying them.

By the time they were doomed, they were still worth $20B. Heck, they were up 30% on the day of the redesign. Funny, every young person knew Snap was down users, and that they were doomed, months before investors did. That Saudi guy was the last to fall for it. The $8B remaining is desperate hope; I expect them down to $1B within two months. If kids could short sell, it'd be down to scrap-and-sell price by now.
I totally agree. The redesign was the beginning of the end. When will companies learn that if it ain’t broke don’t fix? It’s ok to evolve but when you stray to far from what made you popular in the first place you’re bound to lose people.

I haven't used Snapchat in months, in fact, I didn't even download it this time when I got a new phone. Instagram's stories are way better. When will they stop trying and just accept it's over for them?

Snap is bleeding users by the day. While this seems cool it is too little too late.
