What a load of crap. Someone had nothing better to write than a counter argument to a non-argument.

Instagram is a good product and it's gotten to where it is now being a good and clever design as is. Making changes for the sake of being hip is what would send it to oblivion, like many competitors have done and fell.

Since you're just getting downvoted -- the article is arguing that the aesthetic of Instagram photos is changing from manicured tableaux to candids (albeit, it seems, pretty staged candids), not that the platform itself is changing.

ok, thank you for that, I admit I rolled eyes and skimmed that one.
