The photo-sharing app is about to change, with a bigger emphasis on video content and entertainment on its way.
So, what does this mean for users and brands alike?
What can you be doing now to ensure your business stands out when Instagram expands its video offering in the coming months?
One Billion Active Users Turn To Instagram To Be Entertained
Head of Instagram, Adam Mosseri, announced via Twitter last week that Instagram will no longer be a square photo-sharing app.
Mosseri added that the main reason people use Instagram is to be entertained so the platform will be leaning into this trend.
The biggest difference will be larger and bigger videos.
It will begin to look a lot more like its largest competitor, Tik Tok.
Users will receive recommended videos into their feed from accounts and brands they’re not currently following.
By expanding videos to be full-screen, the consumer can immerse with the video more.
