Despite its worldwide popularity, Instagram, the massively popular photo and video-sharing social networking site, does not yet have an iPad-compatible app. In 2012, Facebook Inc. paid around $1 billion for the Instagram app.
Instagram might not be coming out with an iPad app anytime soon
At a Q&A session this past weekend, Instagram CEO Adam Mosseri addressed this complaint regarding the lack of an Instagram app for the iPad. The simple question, “Where is the Instagram iPad app?” responded to. “I spent some time on an iPad. Because I was on a flight,” Mosseri spoke. “but there is still no Instagram app for the iPad.” It would be nice to do so, but with so much to do. And so few people are available. It is not in priority.
Interestingly, the question of an official iPad app for Instagram was brought up in a similar Question & Answer session held in February 2020, and Adam Mosseri responded by saying much the same thing, “We would like to build an iPad app” for Instagram, among other topics of discussion. However, we only have a small team and a huge lot of work to complete. And it hasn’t yet emerged as the next best option.”
In this context, it’s important to recall that, while it’s theoretically possible to view and utilize Instagram on an iPad in a variety of ways, including through browsers, the company has never released a dedicated iPad app.
Instagram is also working on a Favorites feature for its iOS version, which is expected to be introduced later this year. Users will be able to give accounts a priority, which will allow them to appear higher in the feed, boosting the chances of them being seen.
Adam Mosseri, the CEO of Instagram, disclosed how the social media platform ranks its feed and stories right now. It takes into account the most recent postings made by those you follow first and foremost.
When it comes to ranking content, it takes into account things like how popular a post was and what format it was in, how many times you interacted with the person who posted it in the last few days or weeks, how many posts you liked on Instagram, and your previous interactions with that person, among other things. The stream ranking would alter if favorites were added.
Instagram is currently making a lot of important changes as it tries to evolve from merely being a photo-sharing site to becoming a multimedia social network similar to TikTok. In addition, Instagram is seeking users’ dates of birth in order to conduct additional child protection precautions.
