  • Instagram rushes to revert recent changes to its app amid backlash.
  • Well-known celebrities and users alike voice their disapproval of the full-screen home feed and increase in recommended posts.
  • Instagram chief Adam Mosseri says the removal will be temporary as the company looks to improve the way it will incorporate them in the future.

Instagram is looking to revert some changes after the platform faced criticism following user disagreements.

The backlash came after Instagram began testing a new full-screen home feed view. The platform also increased the number of recommended posts on the app as well as its focus on videos. However, all of these changes felt forced, and users were clearly not enjoying them. According to Platformer, Instagram is set to roll back these changes over the next couple of weeks while bringing improvements to its algorithm.
