Instagram reverses scrolling update after backlash, apologizes for "bug"

29 December 2018, 10:24 | Megan Pierce



Some Instagram users were flummoxed Thursday morning as the photo-sharing app's timeline feature switched from its familiar vertical scroll to a horizontal feed.

Instagram has its "stories" at the top of the app; a photo and video posts taking up the middle of the app. Users swipe up to scroll through posts from friends.

Instagram mentions began trending on Twitter nearly immediately after the update appeared, with countless users up in arms about the change.

He apologized saying this feature was supposed to be tested on very few users but instead went to a broader number of people by accident.

But everyone can relax. If you were (un) fortunate enough to log into Instagram at a certain time, you might have found yourself greeted by a new feature: horizontal scrolling.

"The Instagram update is so trash it's worse than the Snapchat update", @samfloresxo tweeted.

Social media was instantly flooded with users reacting negatively to the abrupt change. Future revenue growth at the company depends on Facebook's ability to shift marketer's interest to new ads in messaging services and marketing spots in "stories", especially on Instagram. "Should already be rolled back".

Instagram is testing a major change to its interface, switching the current scrolling interface to a swiping and tapping interface.

Mosseri confirmed that the update should be cleared for everyone, and to just restart your app if you were still seeing it.

Instagram is a sacred way to pass time and share life updates for many.

Also, the horizontal layout only appeared to have been affecting the main news feed, the user's individual profile appeared the same as usual. 17 minutes later, the old-fashioned vertical feed reappeared for most of the users that were affected by the test.
