Instagram's Accidental Horizontal Feed Update Had People Big Mad

Just when you thought Tumblr and the big porn ban of 2018 had secured the bag for "Worst Social Media Update" of the year, Instagram nearly gave it a run for its money after revealing a glimpse of the new interface update that completely changes how the app works - and not in a good way, judging by the reaction from social media.

The bug led to a small test being distributed widely, the company said.

Nearly as soon as the change was made, users took to Twitter to complain and demand the return of the familiar up-and-down scrolling method.

Instagram users woke up to an update that has many confused about how to navigate the popular social media application.

As of now, Instagram has not made any statements on today's developments.

One Twitter user posted: "Instagram removing the update so fast bc of the hate was the greatest thing I've ever seen a social media community do".

If you're still seeing the update, Mosseri suggests closing out and launching the app again. And while we're at it, let's go ahead and bring back a chronological feed. This change only affected the main page, and user profiles worked the same way they did previously.

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

Some wondered if it was a way to stop people just scrolling endlessly through updates by making them tap and examine posts before moving on.

Reactions to Instagram's unpopular update came through thick and fast on Twitter.

After the update users now had to swipe left (or right) or tap through the posts in the app, like a modified horizontal scroll.

Users awoke to a very different Instagram look on Thursday morning - and they were not happy. We apologize for any confusion'.
