"Instagram is no longer a photo sharing app, according to Adam Mosseri, the head of Instagram. In a video posted to his Instagram and Twitter accounts, Mosseri said the company is looking to lean into entertainment and video after seeing the success of competitors like TikTok and YouTube.

The message that Instagram is sending is clear: it no longer wants to be thought of as the “square photo-sharing app,” as Mosseri puts it, but instead as a general entertainment app driven by algorithms and videos. At the moment, though, it’s vague as to how Instagram plans on doing that — and whether it’ll be improving and innovating on features popularized by apps like TikTok or just making something with a few Facebook-y tweaks."

Many small creators and artists alike use this app to show their creations and art, allowing their audiences to appreciate and enjoy their artwork. This is not the first time that Instagram has stepped on (small) artists (Ex: their algorithms). Now, they seem to want to take away the photo aspect of the app that artists use to showcase their art the most. Protect and support the talented and small artists of Instagram, and those alike who also just enjoy posting photos of anything else.

Photographers, businesses, artists, models, small creators, and other content creators as well as their followers, who all are affected by this.

We want an app that does it's own thing and sticks to its own lane. Forget tiktok. If you want an app that's video-based, make a new one to copy tiktok then! If we wanted something like tiktok then let us go to tiktok then.

Keep Instagram as a photo app!
