If youve noticed some changes in your Instagram feed over the past few months, especially a substantial shift to video content on your IG feed, you're not the only one who's not exactly excited about it. Adam Mosseri, the CEO of Instagram, addressed concerns and changes to the app in a July 26 video. He further warned that major feed changes are coming and you may not be surprised by it.
Bruening stated in her blog that she is starting a movement to reintroduce the old Instagram. She has started a Change.org petition that has over 200,000 signatures as of July 27. It's clear that some people on the platform prefer more photos and less videos. Unfortunately, Mosseri had just the opposite message in his weekly posts on Tuesday.
The Instagram Picture Deal
Mosseri knows that there are concerns about the shift from photo to video. In the video, he said that Instagram will continue to support photographs because it's a part of its [its] heritage. So, he gets it (kind of).
He said, "I need to be honest." I believe that more and more of Instagram will become video over time. Even if we don't change anything, Mosseri said in the video. When looking at what people share, like, view, and consume on Instagram, he said that's shifting more and more to video.
Mosseri said that we'll have to embrace this shift while continuing to support photos.
Um, so yeah, videos will continue to pop up in your scroll, even when you dont want them to, and that's coming from the guy at the top.
Instagram's Feed Layout Has Been paused
More videos arent the focus of the testing menu. Instagram was testing full-screen feeds that enlarged your feed to a 9:16 ratio that was meant to make the Instagram experience more immersive.
In his July 26 video, Mosseri said, It's a test to a small number of people out there, and the idea is that a more full-screen experience, not only for videos, but for photos, might be a more enjoyable and engaging experience. But just a few days after that, Mosseri took to his IG Stories to inform users that the company has dropped the full-screen design test. Based on our findings and community feedback, Meta stated in an Aug. 1 email that it will
How To Get Chronological Instagram Feeds
What can you do to relive the good old days of Instagram's new feed options, Likes and Favorites?
The Following feed, according to Mosseri, is a great way to avoid seeing Recommendations, or accounts you dont follow. Instagram has been pushed Recommendations to your feed to help you discover new and interesting things on Instagram that you may not have even considered prior.
If that's not your cup of tea, Mosseri said, You may X out a Recommendation. Some people may even delete all Recommendations for up to a month, according to Mosseri. It's one of the most effective and important ways to assist artists in reaching more people. But, if youre only interested in the good-good content from your crew, you may opt out of these IG recommendations.
Mosseri shared that there would be fewer Recommendations on July 29. We're temporarily decreasing the number of recommendations you see in your feed so we can improve the quality of your experience. We recognize that changes to Instagram must evolve as the world changes. However, we want to take the time to make sure we get it right.
Despite the fact that the videos did not receive much attention, the July 26 video from several individuals said they dont like producing videos but they have to remain relevant on the app. It seems Instagram is going ahead with them anyway. Try adding your favorites to your feed, then tell your friends that you only want to see their videos in Stories.
