‘This is the worst’: Instagram users not happy about accidental update

If you logged into Instagram Thursday morning and noticed a drastic change, you were not alone. The platform rolled out a new look that sent the internet into a frenzy.

Many users opened the app to find that their feed scrolled from left to right instead of up and down like usual.

While the redesign was only meant to be a small test, it mistakenly affected way more people than expected, according to Adam Mosseri, head of Instagram.

“That was supposed to be a very small test that went broad by accident. Should be fixed now. If you're still seeing it simply restart the app. Happy holidays!” he said in a tweet.


The company has since reverted back to old format, but not before droves took to social media to express their disapproval. Many said they hated the change.


A few admitted they had a hard time navigating the latest interface.


Others were so frustrated they threatened to delete the app from their phones.


On the other hand, there were a couple of folks who actually liked the new design.


And some people were not affected or logged into Instagram after the old format returned.
