Instagram* will provide vertical photo support

Instagram has recently been forced to give up a new algorithm and redisain that would make the platform look more like TikTok. But no change seems to have happened: during the weekly question-and-answer session, Ask Me Anything, the social network leader Adam Mosseri, said that the platform would start testing vertical photos with a 9:16 ratio.

" Mr. Mosseri said, "now the maximum ratio of the sides to the vertical photos is 4:5, and the 9:16s will take up the entire screen.

Previously, bloggers were outraged by Instagram's attempt to forcibly translate all the images into a full-screen vertical format, and the result was not very successful: the fragments of the images were cut, and a semi-translutable gradient filler appeared from the bottom, and the white text was better read, and the social media authorities also acknowledged the failure, so support for the vertical images would appear, but would not be imposed.

According to Instagram's in-house study,* some users did not like the innovation so much that they drastically reduced the time spent in the application. , said the head of the service last week. The platform also promised to limit the work of the recommendatory algorithm until it "did learn" to offer people content that they really liked.
