Instagram might make you tap through posts instead of scrolling

Posted by @audreylaine, Oct 12, 2018

The company is testing a new way of navigating through posts in your feed, reports TechCrunch. A small number of users are taking part in a test where they tap a post to move on to the next one in the Explore feed instead of scrolling down the screen with their thumb. This “tap to advance” method of navigation has a few benefits:

  • It would eliminate thumb scrolling fatigue.
  • It would also mean that users always see the full photo in the post in its entirety on the screen.
