Instagram’s new scrolling feature briefly inspires fury

I’m not sure why social platforms constantly feel the urge to evolve. I miss the Facebook that gave me real news stories instead of my uncle’s views about the United States Postal Service, I long for the days of Friendster and MySpace.

Instagram is the latest platform to fall victim to the trend. The platform recently decided to test out a new way of scrolling through a feed — tapping left-to-right, instead of up-and-down.

Predictably, the people of the internet are mad.

The feature, mimics the format of Instagram stories. Both features operate horizontally. Users were forced tap to see the next post. 

The transformation made folks largely, well, livid.

Instagram did not immediately respond to Mashable’s request for comment, but Adam Mosseri, Head of Instagram tweeted saying the update was rolled out by accident. 

Now this is the kind of social media outrage that appeals to everyone, regardless of their political views. It pulls the people of the internet together. Onwards, my angry brethren!
