Instagram Testing A Redesign Of Profile Pages

Instagram is making some of the changes to the profile tab, which will put more focus on the user profile rather than the follower count. The move comes as Instagram revealed last week that it would take the help of a Machine Learning tools to eliminate the accounts that come up with the inauthentic comments, likes, and followers. As a part of the new design, the number of followers and those users are following will going to appear in similar font size and no longer be on the top of the user profile.

“We're testing ways you can better express yourself and easily connect with the people – so over the next several weeks, you may see features re-arranged or changed at the top of your profiles,” the company wrote in a blog post on Wednesday.

Instagram profile redesign will also be going to include the re-arranged features at the top of the user profile which changes to buttons, icons and the way users navigate between the tabs. The Facebook-owned company revealed in a blog post that it is as of now working on these changes and will test them in short phrases. It has also confirmed that the photos and videos that users have changed on their grid will not be going to change.

The changes, aimed at making profile cleaner and easier to use, will be rolled out over the next several weeks. “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,” Instagram said in a post.

Instagram also shared some of the screenshots of how the profiles of users could look like the few coming weeks. Moreover, the circle which contains the profile picture could also move to right from the left side. The business accounts of Instagram will be likely to get the “Call,” “Directions” and “Start Order” buttons.

Before this week, Instagram also rolled out the new feature of “Your Activity” which tracks that how much time users spend on the app.
