Meta* decided to stop experimenting with the test version of Instagram* that had criticized many users, including the service's stars, Kylie Jenner's combined sisters announced on Thursday that they had decided to roll out the recently released version of Instagram* with a video based on algorithmic recommendations.
The criticism of Instagram's test version* was due to the fact that the application is openly copying the competing TikTok service, moving increasingly away from the original concept of using it primarily for the exchange of photographs.
Responding to criticism, Mosseri released a short video on Tuesday that assured that photos would continue to play an important role for Instagram,* but users' interests were changing and increasingly preferred the video. That is, Instagram* will continue to promote the video, as users increasingly share them and "like" them in the application, he explained.
However, the negative reaction to the video-oriented test version of Instagram* resulted in the company temporarily changing course.
"Mosseri said in an interview with Platformer's resource."
However, Mosseri has made it clear that Instagram* will continue to pay more attention to the video and that the number of videos will rise again as the company improves technology.
