Snapchat's chronological Stories feed is back for some

Snapchat's chronological Stories feed is back for some

Presently, it's unclear if Snap is simply conducting a limited test to gauge users' reactions to the older format, or if this is part of a much wider rollout that will see the new timeline scrapped altogether. While many aspects of the app overhaul are remaining the same, Techcrunch reports that Snapchat has recently had a change of heart, it seems, with the re-introduction of chronological Snapchat stories - restoring some of the original functionality users loved due to the major backlash.

Now, however, in a turn of events, a number of users are reporting that their respective Story feeds have reverted back to the original chronological timeline, therefore avoiding any favoritism when it comes to which accounts are shown first.

A few months on, how do you feel about the Snapchat redesign?

In its drastic new redesign, SnapChat has dropped its dedicated Stories page - dropping the content amongst private messages in a single feed.

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds Miramar Map Coming to Xbox
This desert area is already available on the PC version and appears to favor sniping tactics more than anything else. Unlike in the Battle Royale mode, players who get killed in War Mode respawn and get to join the fray once again.

The reverse-chronological order will make it more hard to find Stories from friends that don't post as frequently as others, but based on the nonstop yelling from users over the past few months, I'm guessing this is something that a lot of you are happy to see.

But reverse chronological order heavily prioritizes people who post frequently, which can bury your best friends.

Switching to a similar functional design has helped Instagram and Twitter boost growth. Snapchat saw growth improve after starting to roll out the algorithm-powered redesign in Q4 2017. They were likely to see their closest friends' posts no matter when or how infrequently they posted. Essentially, Snapchat might have to decide between preferencing it's most engaged and loyal users, or aiming to add more casual users.

But ditching the algorithm could make it tougher for newer and less consistent Snapchat users who want to pop in and see the most relevant content instead of having to sort through distant acquaintances.
