Instagram has already become similar to TikTok, and will soon become even more similar?
For many years, Instagram has been by far the best social app in the world. People could share photos with their friends there, discover content from different creators or explore the world of influencers. With time, however, TikTok appeared on the market, which, after being purchased by Bytedance Musical.ly, became a real powerhouse.
Currently, it is one of the most popular social media platforms in the world. Instagram has already started to look like it, and will become even more comparable over time?
Will Instagram soon become the second TikTok?
You could already see Instagram trying to keep up with TikTok, for example by adding its own “Reels” feature, which is a strikingly similar style of video content. However, it seems that over time this platform will become very similar to its competitor, which can be deduced from the video published by the head of Instagram, Adam Mosseri.
From the material you can learn that the social application is really going to change. Moreover, Mosseri himself noticed the role of TikTok in the world of social media:
The head of Instagram also said they intend to experiment with wider use of video, with “full-screen, immersive, entertaining video geared towards mobile devices.” The application is expected to receive many more features for a test in the coming months.
On the one hand, TikTok is now taking over the world of social media, however, according to the community, becoming similar to this platform via Instagram is not the best decision. The point is that users are “using Instagram because it’s not TikTok”.
