Instagram has decided to roll back some recent changes to the app after receiving severe backlash from it’s users for the “Tik-Tok” style design. Considering the feedback, the app makers had said that they are pausing the full screen test on Instagram. They also promised to decrease the number of recommendations people in their feed to improve the quality.


Changes in Instagram upset a lot of users across the globe. Several users raised their voice against the updates and complained that they are forced to upload reels as the engagement fir static posts and pictures has gone down.

Several users of the photo/video posting app including Kylie Jenner and Kim Kardashian who between them having 686 million followers on the platform, shared a message saying “Make Instagram Instagram again” complaining that it was “trying to be TikTok” instead of focusing on photo sharing.

Head of Instagram Adam Mosseri said that the company is taking a big step back in the midst of making the major changes after the app faced widespread criticism for it’s recent update. “I’m glad we took a risk. If we are not failing every once in a while, we are not thinking big enough or bold enough”

Reacting to the frustration users faced, Mosseri said that Instagram was going to become more video focused over time and was planning to still support photos. He also said that the recommendations made in the feed of the app didn’t impress followers and expressed his thoughts about regrouping.
