In 2018, the “New Snapchat” has changed the way we see our friends on the app. No longer is it the case that the friends show up based on the last person to send a Snap picture, text or video. You may have a private Snap video that shows up five people below the top. If you are in the Snapchat app a lot, you have likely see your friends move around before your eye or in real time.
So, why does this happen? Why are my friends moving up and down for no reason at all? You likely aren’t getting Snaps and these friends are not updating their stories so why is the order changing right before your eyes?
At this point, we have no idea. What we do know if Snapchat is making it very difficult for users to continue to use the app. More and more are moving to Instagram and this will continue to be the case until Snapchat makes their app easier. They would be smart to go back to the old Snapchat.
