Instagram has had an update and people are going HAM over it. For those that haven't updated yet, behold your new Insta icon:
It's not that bad, but the old icon was so good! We get that companies sometimes want to freshen up their brand but the original Insta icon was so strong and recognisable (even to non-Insta users), we're surprised they wanted to change it. If it ain't broke, don't fix it, nah mean?
Obviously, it didn't take long for the internet to react. Some people made some interesting comparisons...
