Online uproar as Instagram modifies its interface

Online uproar as Instagram modifies its interface

According to a tweet, Instagram said the horizontal feed was because of a bug and explained that they had fixed the issue a few hours after the new design went live. Instead, Instagram's been considering having people scroll side to side or tap to go through their Instagram feed.

Some Internet users have found the bright side to the Instagram update debacle, however. The automatic update wasn't able to be reversed and prompted backlash among users of the popular app.

That's the good news, but the bad news is that Instagram is clearly strongly considering making the horizontal feed a reality for all users in the near future. It also doesn't help that a number of Instagram users are still salty about losing their chronologically-sorted feeds in the first place.

Instagram said a short time later that it had rolled back the redesign to the normal vertical scroll.

He added that while all parties have been victims, "it appears opposition party candidates have borne the brunt of most violence". Hasina, for her part, called on Awami supporters to "remain careful about any subversive activity of BNP and their cohorts".

The feature appears to be a copy of Instagram's stories feature, which people tap through by going sideways.

This meant it was no longer possible to quickly scroll through new posts, as each individual post must be swiped or tapped to move to the next.

After all one can not forget Snapchat's disastrous user interface change, when it clubbed Stories and Discover content together, much to the anger of users.

But, it wasn't before angry users took to social media to blast the firm for its decision to flip the feed.

In response to a tweet, Head of Instagram Adam Mosseri apologized for the confusion and said, "that was supposed to be a very small test that went broad by accident".

On Thursday morning, many Instagram users woke up to find the layout of their feed had been completely overhauled. Now, Instagram appears to be gunning for the ability to scroll up.

Along with that, Jenna Amatulli of the Huffington Post revealed that Instagram provided them some insight into the situation, courtesy of an email from a company spokesperson.
