Business Insider Logo By Kaylee Fagan of Business Insider | Slide 1 of 42:  Snapchat's recent design overhaul is here to stay, whether users like it or not.

Naturally, all this hullabaloo seems ridiculous for those who have never interacted with the famously difficult-to-use photo sharing app, which critics argue has only become less intuitive since the update. Luckily, I'm a millennial who has been practicing the unrecognized art of explaining how to use technology all my life, I'm a shameless Snapchat fan, and I'm here to help.  Here's everything you need to know to use the new-look Snapchat, and a guide to all the quirks that will have you perfecting your Snap skills in no time!
