Instagram rolled out a new feature this week, allowing users to post up to 10 photos and videos in a single post. While some feel this is a fundamental change of what Instagram is, many see it as a way to stay ahead of competator Snapchat.

David Cohen for AdWeek reports:

Instagram officially introduced the ability for users to share multiple photos and videos in a single post, after several users spotted the feature being tested earlier this month.

Users of the Facebook-owned photo- and video-sharing network who update their iOS or Android applications to version 10.9 can now add up to 10 photos and videos to a single post, and other users can swipe through those posts to view all of the content.

Instagram said in a blog post announcing the update:

When uploading to your feed, you’ll see a new icon to select multiple photos and videos. It’s easy to control exactly how your post will look. You can tap and hold to change the order, apply a filter to everything at once or edit one by one. These posts have a single caption and are square-only for now. On your profile grid, you’ll notice the first photo or video of your post has a little icon, which means there’s more to see.

The old news mantra — if it bleeds, it leads has been replaced by if it’s gross, adios. The prospect of a news-free electorate is terrifying.


The news business is in trouble. In the past decade, more than 2400 local newspapers have closed. NBC Nightly News gets 5 million viewers per night, in a nation of 340 million people, so most people are not watching. What are they watching? Netflix.


For most of human history, people lived in a world without news. The concept simply did not exist. The idea of news is really a 19th-century phenomenon, driven first by newspapers, and then by electronic media which brought us radio, then TV and now the web. Now, it seems, we are headed back to a world without news. Not because the technology is not there, but rather because, increasingly, people are no longer interested in news, at least in the way it is packaged now.
