Instagram Gets a Makeover

Instagram's old logo is retired in favor of a sleek, updated version

Instagram’s accompanying apps, Boomerang, Hyperlapse, and Layout all echo the new color scheme and minimalism.

Over 400 million users share 80 million photos per day on Instagram, so there has been the usual shouts of outrage in the Twitterverse (and a few exclamations of joy, too). We’re excited to see how the app continues to develop, especially in terms of advertising and the shift to an algorithm-fueled timeline.
