Instagram will soon give its users the option to choose from different profile designs, with a gradual roll out in separate phases…
Social media users help define themselves through profiles. It’s a place where people express who they are in a single space. Over the next several weeks, Instagram says that it will introduce a number of changes to its profiles.
Instagram Profile Redesign Roll Out Announced
The new Instagram profiles, things are moved around. The icons, buttons, and even the way users navigate between tabs will change.
Similar to Twitter shrinking the follower count font, Instagram is doing much the same, de-emphasizing users’ numbers of followers. Situated at the top of the page is the user’s name, his or her bio, and assigned URL.
“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.”
