This year, Instagram will focus on three specific areas to help add value to users.
According to Mosseri, there will be modifications made to the way creativity is explored on the app. Changes in the customization and editing tools might be possible with new filters added. Instagram’s parent company, Meta is working on building metaverse and could make use of the app to introduce creators to 3D visual tools.
Discover New Things
There is a work-in-progress update to change the user algorithm and help users discover new creators, pages, and more based on their interests. This could mean that the platform wants to create a user feed where people can find new creators beyond the people they follow.
The third area of focus is on building connections and finding new ways to communicate with each other. The platform is working on adding new features and development so that users can express themselves based on their new interests.
Adam Mosseri mentioned that more insights on the developments of Instagram will be revealed as the year goes by.
