All ye selfie-taking, instantly uploading people must have checked out the new snazzy Instagram logo, which has gone from a polaroid-like icon to psychedelic colours, not to mention the app upgrades that came with it. For a social community that has an opinion on everything, it definitely could not take this big change — Instagram being one of the most popular photo- and video-sharing applications — lying down.
The latest update has completely revamped the application and the logo is just one of the changes. The app has a simple black and white layout, which did not go down well with many users. It’s only been a day and people have already started missing the old app.
Now, Twitterati has its own theories about the change and can’t stop talking about it. Here’s what the tweeple have to say.
spent a bajillion yrs looking for the instagram app bc the logo became kinda ugly and i didnt know
