As of now, I still can’t decide whether I like the upcoming update or not. Yes, I do think that it’s true. It’s not a rumor, and I think Instagram’s owner, a.k.a. the owners of Facebook, are decided on pushing through with it. However, like all major changes in any platform, it won’t happen one time big time. They will roll it out slowly, testing bugs as they go through and with the sudden panic of Instagrammers big and small all over the world, I think Instagram has taken a step back and is currently testing out the waters.
