Instagram

Some people don't respond well to change. Instagram.com rolled out a new way to scroll through posts by tapping the screen. Also changed was the direction of the scroll from vertical to horizontal. But the changes didn't last long.

Instagram trended on Twitter all morning after the photo streaming service changed the way users scroll through photos (by tapping the screen) and the direction of the scroll (from up and down to sideways).

Instagram boss Adam Mosseri announced the new changes on Twitter.com on Thursday.

"Instagram today (December 27, 2018) has begun to roll out an update changing the way users scroll through the main feed. Rather than scrolling up and down with a swipe, the new feed scrolls from side to side with a tap.

If you haven't yet received the update, the dynamic mimics that of Instagram Stories and in fact the company introduced the change to users with a screen that reads, "Tap through posts just like you tap through stories."

But before most Instagram users could try out the new changes, they were gone.

Apparently Instagram revoked the changes after users complained on Mosseri's Twitter feed.

He apologized and even implied that the new changes were some sort of test.

"Sorry about that, this was supposed to be a very small test but we went broader than we anticipated."

Question: Did you get the chance to try out the new changes on Instagram?

    I LOVED IT! It helped me maneuver quickly through my industry followers. But NO ONE seems to like change.

    I had all of these plans for what I was going to do while I was out of the office. Namely, work out. Clear out my garage. I have literally just laid in the bed and ate all day...every day. I'm going to have to take some more days off to make up for the days off where I did nothing. LOL.

    Forest Whittaker is divorcing his wife after 20 years. He probably wants to eat a burger finally.

  • imright

    if they can fix that update so quickly how come they wont bring back the timeline being in chronological order !! ?

  • Allihave2say

    Ok See! tis the season! You're going down in a hand basket and the roses are riding with you on the strings.

  • Allihave2say

    Went all the way there!

  • Allihave2say

    This is funny. I decided to choose one task per day and actually work on it. I can no longer plan a full day of chores/changes. One day at a time gets it done.

  • Yui

    Can’t help it.

  • Jackie Rayne

    How about they fix the algorithms and get my timeline updated like it should. I see posts from 2 or 3 days ago. Why?? I saw the changes and I’m happy they changed it back. It was some bull!!

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    this is what i have to do. i do at least one 'chore' each day. for me, that's the only way to stay on top of the housework, smh.

  • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy

    I don't even have an Instagram account. Thank God!

  • starbright9449

    Lmao

  • Tammie Reed

    I really hate how you see old chit instead of updated posts and I have been at 44,8k for several months now and it never was like that before! I see people following me every day but for some reason my numbers won't move...Smh! My likes have went down and my engagement. It's like they hide your posts from your followers seeing it now but want you to buy viewership and Im not doing it. I'm over instagram!

  • Blaque Mahogany

    That's definitely a smart way to go about it. I really only had one thing to do a day (work out) and I still didn't do it. lol

  • Nita

    Nope. I didnt even know til i went on Instagram today and saw a video a comedian made about it

  • Allihave2say

    Ok I did move all the new workout clothes and tennis shoes from waayy back in the closet and hang them on the face of the closet. That was about 3-4 months ago.
    10 years ago I bought exercise mats, gloves, and hand weights. I saw them recently. I'm getting to it soon. LOL. Have a happy New Year!

  • Allihave2say

    I don't really have the time. I own a daycare and work long hours. I have a once a week housekeeper but we have to maintain it the other 6 days. Unfortunately
    I'm particular so I usually end of dong this myself, my way.

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    Yeah, it can definitely be a balancing act (and it doesn't help that I'm naturally lazy) Lol!

  • Allihave2say

    LOL. True that!
