PICS: Instagram Has Changed Its Logo And Redesigned The Entire App
And people are losing their shit
Generally speaking people don't really love change, and that's especially true when it comes to their social networks.
Instagram has users up in arms today after rolling out a complete overhaul of its brand, design, and – though limited – the functionality of the app itself.
As you can see, the logo is starkly different from the very dated one they've been using for the last five years... see for yourself
Here's the new logo...
And the new profile and compose screens...
... versus the old
People are going nuts about the redesign, but this happens all the time – from Facebook changing its newsfeed to Airbnb launching a logo that many said resembled genitalia (which is not exactly ideal).
I actually like it and think it's a great update. Not everyone agrees, though...
