Instagram users vented on social media Thursday after a new app update introduced a polarizing new way to browse through your feed. "Tap through posts, just like you tap through stories".

In a tweet, Instagram's Adam Mosseri wrote: 'Sorry about that, this was supposed to be a very small test but we went broader than we anticipated'. And many have begun to speak out online about the change.
Some Internet users have found the bright side to the Instagram update debacle, however. A notice simply appeared when the app was launched Thursday morning advising users of the update. There is no option in the settings part of the app to change the feed back to the original one either.
