Social media keeps on updating their UI and applications overall. With every update, there is a possibility of the features undergoing a makeover. This makes things difficult for many users who have to re-learn how to perform a certain function.
The recent update on Instagram has changed the way of making carousels. As Eightpoint Technologies has learned from The Verge, “In a recent update, Instagram tweaked the way it asks its users to create carousels (groups of up to 10 photos or videos that rotate through a single post), and this is apparently causing a bit of confusion. This new method was pointed out in the Instagram account Digital Mums, where you can find some great tips on how to use various features of Instagram.”
