The new Instagram interface changes the way your bio looks
With 2018 coming to a close, Instagram announced some big changes happening to the app. Right before the end of the year, Instagram announced on its press site that it would be rolling out a new “redesigned” profile interface which will change the way your bio looks.
According to Instagram this new design makes it easier to “connect with the people you care about on your profile” and “express yourself”. This new interface is going to be tabbed. This means that there are going to be different tabs under the profile for “grid”, “posts”, “shop”, “IGTV” and “Tagged”. Giving brands and companies much more easily accessible options to make their product more available to you.
At the top of this new interface, bios, follower counts, and other details are now wrapped around the profile picture. The follower counts even take a smaller role and are being dragged to the bottom of the profile giving YOU the center stage and giving less importance to your follower count. Here’s how Instagram is describing the update:
“Your profile is where you share who you are on Instagram, so starting today we’re testing ways you can better express yourself and more easily connect with the people you care about on your profile. Over the next several weeks, you may see features re-arranged at the top of your profile including changes to icons, buttons and the way you navigate between tabs, which we hope will make profiles easier and cleaner to use. The photos and videos you’ve shared on your grid won’t change.”
Instagram announced that these changes would start taking place around November/ December 2018. These changes will start by being tested on first and will then be released in “phases and different combinations”. Scroll down to see what your new Instagram profile will probably look like!
