Instagram makes a shocking U-turn on changes to its feed after Kim Kardashian sparked an online backlash

INSTAGRAM has backtracked on major changes after Kylie Jenner and Kim Kardashian backed a viral campaign demanding that the app “stop trying to be TikTok.”

Embarrassed bosses were forced to roll back some of the planned updates after crowds of users said they’d had enough.

Instagram will dramatically phase out a new full-screen layout it has prepared.

It will also reduce the number of recommended posts.

Users around the world expressed outrage at the plans this week, accusing the app of copying TikTok.

“Make Instagram Instagram again,” reads the viral meme.

“Stop trying to be TikTok, I just want to see cute photos of my friends.”

Before the backlash intensified, Instagram boss Adam Mosseri, 39, said Tuesday that “more and more Instagram will become video as time goes on.”

And Mark Zuckerberg, 37, enraged users by suggesting his apps would show even more posts from accounts you don’t follow in the future.

But now the bosses have given in to the pressure.

“I’m glad we took a risk – if we don’t fail every now and then, we’re not thinking big enough or bold enough,” Mosseri said platformer.

“But we definitely have to take a big step back and regroup.

“[When] we learned a lot, then we come back with some new idea or iteration.

“So we’re going to work through that.

“With the new feed designs, people are frustrated and the usage data isn’t great.

“So I think we need to take a big step back, regroup and figure out how we want to move forward.”
