New Instagram Logo


Leave it to Twitter to be the voice of the Internet. Instagram rolled out its colorful new logo today, and the masses have spoken. While a select few are actually enjoying the update, it seems the majority ain't having it. Hating on updates is nothing new, however. People freaked out when Twitter changed its liking system from stars to hearts, and Facebook freaks out anytime anything happens ever. Surely the new logo will take time to get used to, so we rounded up some hilarious Tweets that you can enjoy while soaking in the recent changes. Remember, it's just an app update, not another member of One Direction cutting off his hair. Although from the look of the Twitterverse, you'd think Niall Horan just shaved his eyebrows off or something. 

Today we?re introducing a new look. You?ll see an updated icon and app design for Instagram. Inspired by the previous app icon, the new one represents a simpler camera and the rainbow lives on in gradient form. You?ll also see updated icons for our other creative apps: Layout, Boomerang and Hyperlapse. We?ve made improvements to how the Instagram app looks on the inside as well. The simpler design puts more focus on your photos and videos without changing how you navigate the app. The Instagram community has evolved over the past five years from a place to share filtered photos to so much more ? a global community of interests sharing more than 80 million photos and videos every day. Our updated look reflects how vibrant and diverse your storytelling has become. Thank you for giving this community its life and color. You make Instagram a place to discover the wonder in the world. Every photo and video ? from the littlest things to the most epic ? opens a window for people to broaden their experiences and connect in new ways.

No matter what you think of the new logo, Instagram knows you're still going to use the app. Don't even front like you're done with it just because of this. We might as well learn to love it because before you know it, they'll go ahead and change it on us again.

The video above shows the colorful process in which the app changed its familiar face. According to Instagram's blog, they have updated their related apps, Layout, Boomerang and Hyperlapse as well. Instagram not only changed their logo but made some improvements to the actual app itself. The post notes, "The simpler design puts more focus on your photos and videos without changing how you navigate the app." We're always down with a little more attention on Instagram, TBH. Aren't you? Maybe this update is a blessing in disguise. 

Did Amy Schumer take an Instagram post too far?
