Here’s everything you need to know.
Amidst the backlash, Adam Mussery talks about the new changes on Instagram
President Adam Moussari took to Twitter to explain the recent changes in social networks.
At first he talked about the backlash they received for “changing the program to video” instead of photos.
In response to the user’s concerns, Moussari claimed: “We will continue to support the photos. It is part of our heritage.
However, the CEO added that he thinks “Instagram will become more and more video over time.” He elaborated on that, saying they “need to accommodate this change while continuing to support the photos.”
Additionally, Mussery talked about it on Platformer. “I’m glad we took the risk — if we don’t fail every once in a while, we’re not thinking big enough or bold enough,” he said.
“But we definitely need to take a big step back and reorganize,” the 37-year-old businessman continued. [When] We’ve learned a lot, then come back with some kind of new idea or iteration. So we want to work through it.
He then continued, “For the new feed designs, people are disappointed and the usage data is not great. So I think we need to take a big step back, regroup and figure out how we’re going to move forward.
Mussery’s comments come a day after celebrities such as Kim Kardashian and Kylie Jenner expressed their anger at the latest updates.
Jenner shared a meme and called out the show. “Make Instagram Instagram again,” the post read.
The 24-year-old beauty mogul also added: “Stop trying to look like TikTok, just to see cute pictures of my friends.” Regards, everyone.
Celebrities and users give their opinions
Adam Moussari finished this clip by asking users for their opinions. Regardless, they didn’t hesitate.
Model Chrissy Teigen responded by tweeting, “We don’t want to make a video Adam!”
In addition, one user said:[S]Make everything roll up. You get everyone from journalists, content creators, CEOs, and celebrities to agree. Now it’s an app for everything you promote, not friends and people I think are cool.
While another says: “When will Instagram accept that not all creators are video creators?” Graphic designers, photographers, and other visual artists helped build IG and rely on it to share their work.
