When the popular app Instagram recently completely changed appearance after an update, it was like a bomb for many of the popular apps users.
Suddenly it was no longer possible to see all of its yndlingsprofilers images by scrolling down on the app. Instead you had to swipe to the page to get the latest updates.
It was close to a million users around the world to rage about the sudden change, as the media The Independent thought was a way to emulate the success of Instagrams 'stories'feature. With 'stories', users must go to the page to see the different story from the people you follow on social media.
'Stories'feature is, according to the Independent the fastest growing media format ever, and twice as large as its rival Snapchat.
But a short time after the new update was rolled out, it turned out that it was all a mistake. Suddenly as Instagram-'the feed' again, as before, and Instagram-the boss Adam Mosseri put reflux an apology out on Twitter.
'we are sorry, it was supposed, it would be a very small test, but we went wider than expected', wrote Adam Mosseri, according to The Independent in a tweet, which, however, apparently is no longer visible.
at the same time with Adam Mosseris Twitter explanation, wrote Instagram in a press release that the change was not due to an update, but an error.
'Because of a bug (a mistake, ed.), so some of the users a change to the way their feed today. We have quickly fixed the problem and the feed is back as normal. We apologize for any confusion', was the official announcement from the Instagrams spokespersons.
