Every generation has a hard time transitioning to the next.
In the 50’s, the “Greatest Generation” couldn’t fathom the attraction the teen and young people had to that hip-shaking Elvis Presley.
A decade later, Beatlemania hit the U.S. and the moms and dads who used to dance the Charleston at school formals thought the youth of the 60’s were going straight to Hades in a handbasket.

It happened again in the 70’s, 80’s, 90’s and now the same people who grew up being told that there was no hope for a future after the Beastie Boys told Generation X “you have to fight for your right to party” is now doing the same to kids today.
It isn’t about the music or the fashion – although, some GenX’s complain ad nausea about millennials’ choices for both – now people are up in arms about software updates to their favorite social media apps.
Snapchat is like a house and Instagram is a burglar who robbed it. So they put in new furniture and everyone’s like “I liked the old place”

Let’s be honest, anytime you have to navigate through Facebook’s newest algorithm, it takes a few days to get the hang of it. Then someone posts a handy “how to” and you move on with life.
But Snapchat’s recent update has people out of their minds and some have even started change.org petitions for the social media app to go back to their old version!

Snapchat wasn’t the easiest app to use for most people to begin with but it is insanely popular, with 158 million people sending snaps daily. Many users are claiming the newest update to make the app easier has actually made it more difficult.
If you’re one of these people we’ve got some good news for you! You can actually set it back to the way things once were, you know, before your Snapchat was updated and weird.
