Instagram Accidentally Rolls Out Horizontal Scroll, Freaks Out Users (NASDAQ:FB)

Instagram releases major update to feed, users trash it on Twitter and the update disappears Instagram Testing Horizontal Feed Because They Hate Us All

The popular social media site opted to make a few big changes to their platform on Thursday but drew a massive amount of backlash in the process.

According to Instagram head Adam Mosseri, the update was meant to be a small-scale test for a few users, but it was accidentally released across the platform. "We quickly fixed the issue and the feed is back to normal".

"The Instagram update is so trash, it's worse than the Snapchat update", Twitter user @samfloresxo tweeted. It remains to be seen whether Instagram will try to roll out this now-controversial feature again, considering the hostile feedback the test received. Users of the service caught a glimpse of an in-development UI, after Instagram accidentally rolled it out to everyone.

'Introducing a new way to move through posts, ' a pop-up told them.

Instead, posts appear one at a time on the full screen, requiring you tap or swipe to see the next one. Ahead, catch a glimpse at what the wacky update looked like before it got rolled back, followed by all the on-point reactions that flooded Twitter.

Veteran users definitely did not take kindly to this update.

Adam Mosseri, who heads Instagram for Facebook, says the update was made "by accident".

While some users were happy about the arrival of the new horizontal, tap-to-scroll feature, others were rather less welcoming of it. Simply restart your Instagram app and the sideways scrolling will be gone.

From there, you'll be able to turn off Auto-updates for Instagram alone. Facebook and Instagram users are notorious for hating pretty much every major change upon launch. Tapping right will lead users to the next post whereas tapping left will bring users back to the previous post, and tapping in the middle will do the same, which is liking the post.
