Instagram is making your profile ‘cleaner’ with a new redesign

Instagram has announced plans to redesign the app to make profiles ‘easier and cleaner’ to use.

According to the company, the new design will make it easier to ‘connect with the people you care about on your profile.’

Hopefully, Insta will take some cues from Snapchat and try not to really annoy half its user base.

‘Over the next several weeks, you may see features re-arranged at the top of your profile including changes to icons, buttons and the way you navigate between tabs, which we hope will make profiles easier and cleaner to use,’ the company explained.

‘The photos and videos you’ve shared on your grid won’t change.’

According to Instagram’s statement, it’ll be testing the changes in several different combinations over the next few weeks. So you may see some things changing about a bit if you’re paying attention to the app and not just looking at the pictures.

Instagram says it’ll continue to ‘update the experience’ as it learns from feedback.

Back in May, rival service Snapchat took the decision to reverse aspects of its own redesign that irritated fans the most.

It was forced to release a second update sorting Snaps and Chats back into chronological order, rather than arranging them based on the posts it thought readers were most likely to want to see.

Given the backlash, you can perhaps see why Instagram wants to take the softly-softly approach.

This new redesign also comes after the app introduced the option for users to see how much time they were spending on it.
