If You're an Insta-Grid-Perfectionist, Look Away Now

Instagram themes and carefully planned feeds are all over Instagram at the moment, all displaying aesthetically-pleasing, uniform profiles of art, fashion, architecture, food and everything else. Previously we've ran through the app UNUM, and how grid-planning apps are extremely popular in achieving that follow-worthy feed (like these).

However, if you're a keen Insta-grid planner and perfectionist, the new update that Instagram appear to be trialling may make you throw your toys out of the pram, because all of that hard-work could be for nothing.

As we know it, your Instagram profile shows a grid with three columns, however on some accounts, the platform are trialling a fourth column, which if you've got order and layout to your feed, would mess it up entirely.

Here are some user's reactions to the change on Twitter...

For those who opt for splitting photos on their feed, it's bad news, as shown below...

By the looks of it, it's causing a lot of panic and upset among users, which is no surprise due to the popularity of planned grids. Organised feeds are especially popular amongst companies, brands and influencers who use their aesthetically-pleasing feeds for business and if the change was rolled out onto all new accounts, users could be back at square one (pun intended).

Many have also noted how Instagram's changes aren't what users want - when Instagram stopped displaying posts in chronological order in favour of an algorithmic alternative last year, it all kicked off... now it seems this potential 4-column update is another leaving users unimpressed.

So far, Instagram haven't mentioned anything about the trial on their networks or blog. Are you worried about the potential change or are you not bothered?
