People are not one bit pleased about Instagram’s new update

We can’t see this sticking around for too long.

Instagram has improved for the better a number of times.

The introduction of Instagram stories changed the Selfie game forever, as it almost become an unspoken rule that pictures that were just slightly not good enough for an actual Instagram post, could be thrown up as a story.

But it looks like their most recent update is a bridge too far for quite a few people.

The new update appears to make it so that you don’t have to scroll down anymore, and instead you can simply swipe to see the next person on your timeline’s picture.

The tagline for the update is “Tap through posts, just like you tap through stories.”

It seems like a bit of a strange one, as not many people struggle with scrolling, and if they do, we’re not sure how swiping is any easier for them.

Needless to say, people have taken to Twitter to voice their displeasure.

Lots of people.

Have you got the update yet? If so, what do you think? Disgusting, or not even noticeable?
