This New Instagram Update Will Ruin Your Entire Aesthetic (And Probably Your Life)

If the Internet hasn’t completely destroyed your life already, only you await — Instagram’s new update is the latest assault on my social media personality, and I am shaking.

If you’re the various kinds of person who actually expends day working on your online aesthetic( and if you’re not, what’s wrong with you ????), you’ve just spent hours picking the perfect photo in vain. That’s right, you heard me. All your hard work has proven to be, as usual, futile.

That’s because Instagram has decided to change up its format again, and this time it’s not something like Instagram stories or being able to “like” comments. No, this time it’s going straight to your account and changing up the look completely — instead of a grid of three column, there will now be four.


Okay, I’m sure some of you frankly dgaf. I mean, who cares, right? WRONG. Because some people, like social media influencers and people working to create a brand, have expended a painstaking amount of period working to set up their page a certain way, and now it’s ruined. You can say goodbye to masterpieces like this 😛 TAGEND


Thanks, Instagram.

The four image grid hasn’t officially rolled out yet, but Instagram has been testing it with several users, apparently. If they go through with this, they’ll definitely receive some backlash, but let’s be real — is there ever backlash when a social media app decides to update its features? Devote us a year and we’ll all be back on track with our Insta aesthetic.
