Instagram and its new transformation are buzzing the online social media world. Also, the big redesign of fresh and colorful new icons and a whole lot of improvements is raising the bar higher for the picture based social media platform.
Instagram's new icon is pink and purple and yellow and orange and it's definitely different and that's not all the company has changed today since this morning is rolling out a radical redesign of its mobile application, which not only includes this new, brightly colored app icon but also a revamped user interface that does away with color in favor of a black-and-white look and feel, according to Tech Crunch.
"When Instagram was founded over five years ago, it was a place for you to easily edit and share photos. Over those five years, things have changed," says Ian Spalter, Instagram's Head of Design. "Instagram is now a diverse community of interests where people are sharing more photos and videos than ever before, using new tools like Boomerang and Layout, and connecting in new ways through Explore."
Instagram's interest in updating the icon was to better reflect how its community has changed over time and the new icon, however, still references Instagram's history with its now simplified and softer camera that appears in the much more colorful design, reports the same post.
It is undeniable that the social media world is captivating users in terms of upgrades and development and even other platforms are implementing it as well. To prove the latter, Facebook modified its platform and added emojis to bring about better performance, reports Jobs & Hire.
As Instagram implements the new transformation, users will experience new and fresher ways to enjoy and use the social media platform to its optimum best.
