Instagram Restores Scrolling Feature After Users Slam Latest Update

"We quickly fixed the issue and feed is back to normal", Instagram said in an emailed statement.

Has Instagram really changed the way you scroll through your feed?

"Not to be dramatic but this new Instagram update is the worst thing that's ever happened to me", one said.

Winter weather advisory for Cascades through Thursday
As of right now, it looks like we'll start off the new year with some of the coldest temperatures of the winter season thus far. A Colorado low tracking towards the Great Lakes and northeastward across the regions will give heavy snow and blowing snow.

After the update users now had to swipe left (or right) or tap through the posts in the app, like a modified horizontal scroll.

With the new layout, it was not so easy to quickly fly through the feed. Mosseri added that the "horizontal design" interface has been rolled back, and users should restart their app, if they were still seeing the new design.

Yep, instead of scrolling, users were told to swipe and tap to see the next post, just like you would when you're viewing someone's story. It also doesn't help that a number of Instagram users are still salty about losing their chronologically-sorted feeds in the first place. "We apologize for any confusion", a representative said. Most were unpleased, with a lot asking Instagram to change it back to its original interface, and of course, it spawned a lot of memes.

It remains to be seen whether Instagram will try to roll out this now-controversial feature again, considering the hostile feedback the test received. As in the case of stories the feed automatically changed from one picture to the other.

The fact that users also hate these kinds of big changes matters less than you might think. Instagram's Head of Product tweeted that it had been part of a test that "went broader than anticipated". Twitter and Instagram were filled with outrage posts and memes in a matter of minutes.

Return?: According to TechCrunch, Instagram has been testing the feed for a while. And strangely, in my experience, the change seemed to de-prioritize posts from friends, while sponsored posts, celebrities, and "influencers" got more screen time.
