Instagram is testing a new profile format


Recently, there has been a lot of restructuring in the social media space in terms of software

While Twitter isn’t the only social network toying with profile changes. Instagram is also testing profile page changes which are intended to make its app a lot more user-friendly. The most recent development aims to make the platform’s bio sections “easier and cleaner to use.”

Prior to the change, articular tweaks will vary, but you could see changes to buttons, icons and navigation tabs. You should see the test run for the “next several weeks,” which changes based on feedback.

So far, Instagram has not stated clearly the specific reason for trying out a new profile page, however,  it’s not necessarily chasing similar goals as Twitter. That service has been rethinking the fundamentals as it reacts to criticism, including concerns that it over-emphasized numbers like follower counts. Instagram doesn’t have quite the same pressure. This could, however, encourage you to visit your friends’ profiles more often and check out posts and Stories you might otherwise miss on the current profile design.

For me, I don’t see any need to change the profile format just yet, perhaps the company has exclusive reasons which are yet to be shared with the public. Anyways, that’s by the way, as their is no confirmatory whatsoever, that the changes will be applied any time soon.

it wouldn’t be a bad idea, but as it is still on the pipeline we see how it pans out in near future
