People Are Really Freaking Out Over Instagram's Latest Update

While some people like to embrace change, other people really, really hate having to adjust to the unfamiliar.

After all, humans are creatures of habit.

I happen to be the latter of the two, so obviously, I tend to freak out whenever someone suddenly decides to make unnecessary changes to my daily routine.

If you happen to share my struggle, you might want to brace yourself.

Remember when we told you Instagram might be rolling out a new design?

Well, the day finally came.

That's right. Instagram, the photo-sharing app owned by Facebook, just updated its iOS and Android software, and the new version comes with a bougie logo and a different layout.

Ian Spalter, Instagram's head of design, wrote on Medium,

The Instagram icon and design was beginning to feel, well… not reflective of the community, and frankly we thought we could make it better.

So, what should you expect with the new update?

Well, the first thing you'll notice is Instagram ditched its signature Polaroid camera and rainbow logo for a more minimalist design featuring a white outline of a camera on a colorful background.

In addition to the modernized logo, the navigation icons — aka the home, search, camera, activity and profile buttons — have also been given new appearances.

Plus, all of the in-app text will now be black and white, and the notification icons were changed from their OG orange hue to the color red.

Take a look at the video above to see Instagram's new design, and check out the tweets below to see what people are saying about these changes.

Your Instagram feed is about to look a lot different…


…because the latest Instagram update just gave your favorite photo sharing app a major makeover.


On Wednesday, Instagram rolled out the updates for its iOS and Android software, and the new version comes with a brand-new logo and layout.


As you can imagine, everyone is losing his or her sh*t over this update…


…and the new design seems to be giving people some pretty strong feelings.


So far, we've seen everything from happy responses…


And people who really seem to be feelin' the new look of the app…


To Instagram users who are just straight-up confused…


…and people who are scared to download the new update.


For the most part, it seems people are not fans of the new design…


…and a lot of people actually seem to be angry AF about the updated layout.
