Why Do Friends Randomly Go Up or Down on the New Snapchat?

One of the biggest issues with the new December 2017 Snapchat Update is the Friends Screen. When you login, there is no longer a Stories screen. You can swipe left and find your friends but for some reason, they are always in a different order and they will change in front of your face. Friends will randomly go up and down in you list for no reason whatsoever. What makes these friends go up or down on your list? Can you do this yourself? Is it something you can customize?

From our understanding, this is Snapchat using their algorithm to tell you what content you want to see. If you look at every Snap from Jessica, she is likely to be at the top of the list of friends. That being the case, she might move down if she has a story or a few messages that you don’t read immediately. We have no idea how the algorithm works or if it is even worth it at this point.

What do you think about the new Snapchat update in December 2017? Do you want to go back to the old Snapchat?
