“TikTok-like features” on Instagram will be suspended

SAN FRANCISCO: Instagram will stop using certain features that users have criticized for making the social network too similar to TikTok.The most vocal users this week on social media urged the company to “make Instagram Instagram again” and quit trying to compete with TikTok, including the famous sisters Kim Kardashian and Kylie Jenner.

The catchphrase originated from a petition that, as of late Thursday, had amassed more than 229,000 signatories. For goodness’ sake, “let’s get back to our roots with Instagram and remember that the idea behind Instagram was to share images.”

Instagram CEO Adam Mosseri responded to the criticism in a video uploaded to Twitter earlier this week and said that the features were still being developed and were being tested on a small sample of users.
