Attention, Instagram devotees! Your profile page is going to look a little different. Now, nobody panic. These are minor changes. Throughout November and December, Instagram is testing subtle alterations to the profile page, mainly shifting navigation between tabs and changing icons and buttons.
Testing To Improve User Experience
In a blog post, the company explained the importance of your profile as the way you express who you are. They described the timeline of the changes: “We’ve been working on these changes and will test them in phases and different combinations with our community over the next several weeks.”
The blog showed an example of an alternate profile with three user pages side by side. “We’ll continue to experiment,” Instagram explains, “and update the experience as we learn from your feedback.”
What To Expect
Don’t worry about the grid displaying your photos and videos changing. That will stay the same, but the icons above the grid might transform to words. Also, your profile pic could move to the right side of the screen, which will mean your username is at the center. Less prominent will be your followers and following information and your number of posts disappears.
Also, “follow” and “message” may now be next to each other. The new profile design is an attempt to offer more options for business pages, like including a “start order” button.
New Leadership Inspring Fresh Design
Since Instagram founders Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger stepped down and former Facebook News Feed chief, Adam Mosseri assumed the help as VP of Product, Instagram has incorporated many changes.
Earlier this year, Instagram introduced several new features that log one’s activity, three new shopping features, and a “nametag” component which echoes Snapchat’s feature, Snap Codes.
The company has also vowed to minimize fake likes and followers by eliminating accounts from third-party applications. They also aspire to minimize bullying on the platform.
That’s not so bad, isn’t? A few tweaks here and there. Stay calm and Instagram on.
