Instagram accidentally rolls out new horizontally scrolling feed to much confusion

Instagram accidentally rolls out new horizontally scrolling feed to much confusion

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".

Instead of vertically scrolling through posts in the Instagram newsfeed, the new rollout changed it into a horizontal scroll, where users will need to tap to advance through posts.

Many social media users weren't happy about the abrupt change and took to Twitter to voice their complaints. We quickly fixed the issue and feed is back to normal. This change only affected the main page, and user profiles worked the same way they did previously. "We apologize for any confusion", a representative said. The message read: "Introducing a new way to move through posts", the pop-up reads, alongside a message encouraging people to try it out.

Remember the good old days, when all the Insta posts on your feed came up perfectly ordered from newest to oldest, and you could simply scroll through and then stop, content, upon reaching the previous day's content? A lot of them even chided the company for focusing on unimportant stuff instead of working on sorting user's feed in chronological order - something its users have been asking for a very long time, and is yet to feature even in company's dev cycle.

The unwelcome update - which was likened to Tinder - was live for about an hour before it was rolled back. If you're still seeing the horizontal feed in the app, try restarting it, Mosseri says.

The feature was first reported by the TechCrunch in October and Instagram confirmed that it was testing a feature that would allow users to view feed by tapping on it akin to stories. The Stories bar, however, was easy to access as it was always present and doesn't require you to scroll all the way to the top. Comments like "test failed", "never do it again", "absolutely very bad", and "everyone hates it" were some of the politer posts made. Snapchat did not roll back the design, despite user outrage.
