Goodbye, Stories page...

YOU know when you’re dreaming about school or work, and everything looks mostly the same, but for some reason the office is outside, or the walls are a different colour, or your classmates have been replaced by your family?

That’s what the new Snapchat update is like – and it’s freaking people out.

On Wednesday, (some) Snapchatters opened their app ready to continue their Snapstreak, only to discover things were the same, but different.

This ghost is getting people all worked up.

The Stories page – where people could post their pictures and videos for 24 hours – has disappeared.

Instead, your friends’ stories are floating around on the Friends screen, where you see your personal Snapchats.

And over on the Discover page, in between all the news, there is a random mix of popular stories as well.

No doubt other changes will reveal themselves as we play with the new-look Snapchat.

But right now, we want to know: What do you think?
