Instagram surprised lots of people with a massive update, one which didn’t go down well at all. Engadget:
If you opened up Instagram today and found that your timeline orientation was totally switched, you weren’t alone. It appears that quite a few users had a timeline that moved left to right, where posts could be tapped through as they can be in stories.
But wait, it wasn’t even supposed to happen…
Sorry about that, this was supposed to be a very small test but we went broader than we anticipated. ?

Regardless, this is coming – though I wonder if Instagram will reconsider this move given the unhappiness displayed by many of those who got the update.
