Not only game developers seem to be doing weird things during Christmas, this time it was Instagram that messed up, and this made people super angry? Let’s analyze what actually happened with one of the most favorite social networks.
Firstly, let’s recall what normal Instagram looks like: Instagram feed is vertical, Instagram stories are horizontal. However, yesterday things went upside down. The feed of Instagram went horizontal as well.
As it turned out, the team of developers decided to test this feature out, but it was intended only for a limited audience. However, things did not go quite as planned.
“Due to a bug, some users saw a change to the way their feed appears today. We quickly fixed the issue and feed is back to normal. We apologize for any confusion,” said the representative of Instagram.
But this was enough to start a rage wave from the Insta community.
Instagram literally went “felt cute but might delete later” #instagramupdate

Everything went back to normal, but the negative impact remained. Hopefully, Instagram will please us only with good updates in 2019.
