Instagram briefly switched to horizontal feed

Yesterday, Instagram shifted the vertical scrolling to horizontal feed for some users but it was just for testing objective.

Many users compared the change to Snapchat's unpopular redesign, which rolled out previous year and was widely criticised for being too confusing.

And like most updates by Instagram, even this update was met with strong disapproval and sharp criticism. In the test, users could only see one post at a time and had to swipe or tap right or left to move between them. Instagram's head Adam Mosseri took to Twitter to explain that this was a very small test, but it went "broader" than the company had anticipated.

Instagram has apologised after a "bug" update changed some users' feeds, resulting in major backlash, which the social media platform said is now "fixed".

On Thursday morning, many Instagram users woke up to find the layout of their feed had been completely overhauled. "We apologize for any confusion", a Facebook spokesperson told The Verge.

'Tap through posts, just like you tap through stories'.

After the update was rolled out, users all across the world started complaining about the new feature and said if this remains they would leave the app and delete their profiles.

Instagram is rolling out a new way to stalk everyone in your feed: sideways. "Should already be rolled back". According to another tweet by Mosseri, "If you're still seeing it you can simply restart your app and you should be good to go".

Before the revert, the updated feed employed the same interface used when viewing Instagram stories. 17 minutes later, the old-fashioned vertical feed reappeared for most of the users that were affected by the test. For many users who have been patiently hoping and waiting for the Facebook-owned company to bring back chronological timelines, this was the last straw.
