Instagram users left furious after noticing subtle change to their profiles

Instagram users left furious after noticing subtle change to their profiles

Some are wanting to ditch the app for good.

Tweaks to social media apps will never please everyone.

Instagram's latest update introduced a subtle change but it's caused a stir within its community of 2.4 billion users.

Now you might have not spotted it right away, but something's now different.

The change is barely noticeable, but it's been enough to cause outrage online.

People have not held back their feelings, calling the change 'ugly' and 'skin-crawling' with some even joking about protesting. Some have gone as far as to consider deleting the app because of it.

The huge change you ask? The font on your profile page is now ever so slightly larger.

And users were quick to make their feelings known.

'Instagram changed its font and I hate It so much,' one user remarked, while another complained: 'The new instagram font is so UGLY WHY DID THEY DO THAT LIKE THAT LOOKS WEIRD.'

'If there’s one thing a creative is going to notice, it’s a font update. Me no likey the new Instagram font,' replied another.

One user thought it was just her eyes playing tricks, writing: 'thought I was going insane because NOBODY else believed that instagram had changed the font but I'm glad everyone here noticed'.

Some see it as their last straw with the app, saying: 'This new instagram font makes me want to delete the app.'

While the change has upset a majority, it's unlikely to drive them away from the app for good.

Back in 2022, Instagram's algorithm update caused a lot of people's love-hate relationship with the app to turn fully into hate.

The Meta-owned company removed the chronological feed in favour of an algorithm-based one.

Since then it has introduced Reels, IGTV, Carousels and a shopping page, all shifting away from the app's original purpose of sharing photos.

To make things worse for those who just want to share images, Instagram also favours users who engage with these new trends, making them more visible.

I’m all for updates if it’s going to improve the app's usability but more often than not it seems to do the exact opposite.

The lesson here? If it ain't broken, don't fix it. You'll only upset millions of users.
