Instagram vertical scrolling changed into horizontal feed, faces backlash

Author at TechGenyz Apps
Instagram Vertical Scrolling
A sudden update by Instagram to remove the vertical scrolling feature and replace it with the horizontal feed has been infuriating. There have been certain conjectures made to bid farewell to the social networking app and the users have expressed their resentment on Twitter and other platforms about this sudden and instantaneous change. According to reports by the Head of Instagram Adam Mosseri, the event was actually a small and infinitesimal experiment but it went further than expected. TechCrunch had been the first to officially report about the reshaping and redesigning of the app in October probably via their sources. However, that experimented internally within a closed circuit on the app's Explore page. https://twitter.com/alexeheath/status/1078313592586416129 https://twitter.com/MKBHD/status/1078347584186531841 On Thursday, the company tried to apply the experiment to the main feed which enabled the users to only swipe to left and right without being able to scroll up and down which had been the only way to use Instagram since its inauguration. The sudden change in the popular photo-sharing app annoyed the users and they showed their grudge on Twitter. https://twitter.com/zaralarsson/status/1078310729877520385 https://twitter.com/igzrap/status/1078353207141773313 https://twitter.com/esmemeh/status/1078351197717839874 https://twitter.com/instagram/status/1078335326991667205 Soon after the bizarre incident Instagram officially apologized for the mistake and its team quickly fixed the bug which caused the issue.
