Again and again you come across Instagram accounts and company profiles that work with an Instagram mosaic or a collage. All these Instagram collages may soon stop working, as Instagram is testing a new grid for profile views.

Is a new Instagram grid coming?

Until now, the collages and mosaics have generally been created from new photos (and videos). The aim is to create a large image from several individual images. What looks good on your own Instagram account often doesn't work on your Instagram feed.

If Instagram now switches to four photos per row, all collages created will no longer work.

The Wrestler has first reported on the test of Instagram and you might think that the change should not have much impact. Which it is.

Many Instagram users are not yet familiar with the new grid. A lot of time has been invested in the selection and arrangement of the images and now Instagram is destroying this work in one fell swoop. So many reactions.

Es ist viel Zeit in die Auswahl und Anordnung der Bilder investiert worden und jetzt macht Instagram diese Arbeit mit einem Schlag zunichte. So lauten viele Reaktionen.

3 × 3 becomes 4 × 4? Please don't

That may be true, and Instagram profiles are more likely to be viewed than, say, a Facebook page. But that doesn't change the fact that the feed is the core element of Instagram. The new grid would have no effect on the Instagram feed. Since no one can know when and how Instagram makes changes, adapting to a 4 × 4 grid, for example, would not be recommended. Even if the various photo apps would adjust their options.

If you have played with the grid or created an Instagram mosaic, then you should consider a different approach for the future. Wenn ihr mit dem Raster gespielt oder ein Instagram Mosaik erstellt habt, dann solltet ihr euch für die Zukunft einen anderen Ansatz überlegen. Don't create an Instagram mosaic and focus on the feed and your Instagram Stories.
