SNAPCHAT GETS A MAKEOVER
Have you ever actually gone through the Discover feed on Snapchat? Do you even know what it is? Snapchat’s new look makes ignoring the daily updates from companies and news outlets such as Daily Mail, Cosmopolitan, and People near impossible. With that being said, Snapchat’s new look does feature more comprehensible icons to help you navigate and a different look to the story page. While many people seem to dislike the new update, Snapchat claims that they changed the app to make it more user-friendly.
YELLOW SPRINGS STREET FESTIVAL
The Yellow Springs Street Fair happened this Saturday featuring over 200 arts, crafts and food vendors. The festival featured music acts such as Gin-Soaked Angels, Jojo Stella and Drew Allen DUO. People gathered from all around Ohio to walk the streets of Yellow Springs, eat good food, shop from local artists, listen to music and drink beer. Some attendees even took advantage of the nice and hot weather by riding their bikes to the festival and using the complimentary and encouraging bike valet service upon arrival.
TINDER CHANGES ALLOWED AGE TO ADULT ONLY
Tinder has always allowed minors from ages 13 to 17 to use their app, only allowing them to “match” with others in their age range. Unfortunately for people under the age of 18, Tinder has decided not to deal with the liability of matching up minors. Though many middle and high schoolers will probably be disappointed with this change, it is probably the best option moving forward. Try actually talking to your peers, kids.
