Lenses Performing Poorly After Update

  • I have two lenses (Sharp and Alien Twerk) that consistently get a lot of views. I updated Alien Twerk a few weeks ago but I have not updated Sharp, so it can act as a control (but this is still fairly anecdotal).

    Overall, Sharp (the lens that was not updated) has been getting lower views lately than it had been previously, so either across the board people aren't using lenses as much right now or it's just that this lens in particular is getting fewer views.

    Alien Twerk, however, has had its daily views cut in half since the update. There is a very clear drop from day to day, but it had been rejected and it took me a few hours before I had time to put it back up, so the initial drop was due to that. But after the update the reach never recovered.

    Based off my own experience, lens usage overall might be a little down right now, but updating lenses does indeed seem to negatively impact lens reach. Whether or not this is intentional is up to Snap to say, but the evidence that updating a lens will cut the views seems pretty strong.

    What I'm unable to say is whether the act of updating a lens alone causes the drop or if the fact that Alien Twerk had been rejected is also to blame; I don't have a regularly performing lens that I've updated to see whether a rejection then an update or just an update by itself can cause the drop.
