Instagram users don’t seem happy about the app’s latest update.
Last month, Meta Platforms CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced Instagram would be testing a new full screen feed that resembles rival app TikTok.
If you blinked you may have missed Zuckerberg’s announcement, as it was made via an Instagram story.
Explaining the redesign, he said: “We want to make it easier to discover content and connect with friends. Photos are still an important part of Instagram, and we’re working on ways to improve the way they show up in a full-screen feed too.”
This makes Instagram look more like a TikTok clone, with the content taking up the entire length of the screen.

A small area at bottom is reserved for navigation, while every other element is overlayed on the content.
To remedy any confusion around the new design, Zuckerberg follows up by clarifying photos will continue to be an important part of Instagram.
The redesign will not turn the Instagram into videos only.
He said "We want to make it easier to discover content and connect with friends. Photos are still an important part of Instagram, and we’re working on ways to improve the way they show up in a full-screen feed too."
"Some people will start seeing this test soon. Excited to hear your feedback.”
However, users have taken to Twitter and it seems that the update is not proving to be popular. 
A lot of people are calling for Instagram to bring back the old feed, with some threatening to delete the app for good unless the update is reversed.
