Seems like FACEBOOK, the social-media conglomerate has a lot of experiments under its wing right now.
After reports surfaced last week of it trying out an Instagram like feed for its native app, now reverse coder Jane Machun Wong has revealed that its acquired platform Instagram is also mulling changes.
TikTok-like vertical scrolling page for IGTV content and a category-wise organised layout for the explore page say like style and humour a tweet from her revealed.
Instagram is working on new IGTV Feed and Explore— Jane Manchun Wong (@wongmjane) November 19, 2019
Feed: scrolling vertically gets you endless content, no longer in grid layout. Arguably similar to TikTok

While users have not come forth talking about experiencing any such change themselves, but initial reaction has been positive atleast to the images.
TikTok which in India itself crossed 150 million downloads last week, poses as a strong contendor to FACEBOOK, who has tried to adapt itself to the compeititon with features like Instagram music and Reels. The experiments might also be leading to a step in the same direction....
