If you logged into Instagram on Thursday morning and noticed a drastic change, you were not alone. The platform rolled out a new look that sent the internet into a frenzy.
Many users opened the app to find that their feed scrolled from left to right instead of up and down like usual.
While the redesign was only meant to be a small test, it mistakenly affected way more people than expected, according Adam Mosseri, head of Instagram.
“That was supposed to be a very small test that went broad by accident. Should be fixed now. If you're still seeing it simply restart the app. Happy holidays!” he said in a tweet.
The company has since reverted to its old format, but not before droves took to social media to express their disapproval. Many said they hated the change.
A few admitted they had a hard time navigating the latest interface.
Others were so frustrated that they threatened to delete the app from their phones.
On the other hand, there were a couple of folks who actually liked the new design.
And some people were not affected or logged into Instagram after the old format returned.
