Snapchat is betting that the future of social media involves keeping the social separate from the media.

Snap (SNAP), the parent company of Snapchat, unveiled a significant redesign of its flagship app on Wednesday to make it easier to use after struggling to grow its audience since going public in March.

With the new design, Snapchat will still open up to a camera, but it promises to have a clearer delineation between content from friends and content from publishers.

If you swipe right from the main camera screen, you’ll see a redesign Discover page of stories from publishers and creators as well as curated posts from the community, arranged in order of relevance for you based on Snapchat’s algorithms.

Snapchat’s Discover feed currently has stories and shows from publishers like The New York Times, NBC and CNN.

If you swipe left from the camera, you’ll see a Friends page that pulls together your chats and Snapchat stories, with new messages and friends you’ve chatted with recently appearing higher on the screen.
