Instagram announce that their recent update has been gotten rid of

Instagram users quickly took to Twitter this morning to lament the side-scrolling format. But it's worth remembering just how important the Stories format is to Facebook when you think about why Instagram would do these kinds of tests in the first place.

He began replying to users, telling one, "Sorry about that, this was supposed to be a very small test but we went broader than we anticipated".

But everyone can relax. We quickly fixed the issue and feed is back to normal.

Hopefully, the resounding backlash is the feedback Instagram needed to ditch the new feature once and for all. "We apologise for the confusion", reads the tweet. Facebook and Instagram users are notorious for hating pretty much every major change upon launch. With various changes to the feed algorithm and the introduction of a new "Close Friends" feature on Stories, there's been a lot to keep track of and adapt to.
