Instagram just completely changed its format and the Internet is not here for it

If you’ve hit Instagram today you might have noticed that the app has rolled out a major new user interface overhaul that has fundamentally changed everything you thought you knew about the social networking service.

(If you haven’t noticed, thank the ‘gram gods and do not update.)

The feed design has been altered from the standard vertical scrolling to a new horizontal, ‘story’-like design. AKA Instgram is now Tinder.

The update makes tapping the left or right sides of the screen the singular method for revealing new posts.
