Product Design – Do you feel overwhelmed by the number of options on your instagram profile?

Instagram is pushing some new features on its own app. I’m feeling overwhelmed by them due to the core feature of IG, posting pictures!

Do you feel overwhelmed by the number of options on your instagram profile?

 

At the moment on the Instagram main screen we can find:

A top toolbar with a mix of buttons to:

  1. shoot a photo

  2. browse the Videos

  3. send/read messages

The navigation bar to browse the stories
Still blurry to me the difference between the stories and the videos. Personally, I don’t use any of these features. I don’t think these are the core actions of the IG app

The bottom navigation toolbar with the main (?) feature of the app

UX is not the most important part of a product

When designing, think about what the person is trying to accomplish. Don’t let the design get in the way.

  1. what you are doing is part of a large system
