Adam Mosseri, the head of Instagram, isn’t thrilled with the platform’s TikTok competitor Reels. He discussed the format, which launched in the US in August, during an interview with The Verge’s Decoder podcast today.

“I’m not yet happy with it,” he says. “We’re growing both in terms of how much people are sharing and how much people are consuming, but we have a long way to go. And we have to be honest that TikTok is ahead.”

He went on to say the team is mostly focused on “table stakes” right now, and not honed in on how to differentiate itself. Specifically, he calls out TikTok’s innovative creative tools, like filters and effects that spur new video meme formats as something Instagram isn’t making on its own yet but needs to eventually...

Former Facebook VP of News Feed and recently appointed Instagram VP of Product Adam Mosseri has been named the new head of Instagram.

“We are thrilled to hand over the reins to a product leader with a strong design background and a focus on craft and simplicity — as well as a deep understanding of the importance of community” Instagram’s founders Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger write.

“These are the values and principles that have been essential to us at Instagram since the day we started, and we’re excited for Adam to carry them forward.”

Instagram’s founders announced last week that they were resigning after sources told TechCrunch the pair had dealt with dwindling autonomy from Facebook and rising tensions with its CEO Mark Zuckerberg.

Mosseri’s experience dealing with the unintended consequences of the News Feed such as fake news in the wake of the 2016 election could help him predict how Instagram’s growth will impact culture, politics, and user well-being.

Mosseri joined Facebook in 2008 after attending NYU and briefly working at a startup called TokBox.

Everything changed for Facebook two years ago.

The company was accused of making politically biased choices about which news stories showed up as trending topics in users’ news feeds.

The adjustments Facebook made in response to those criticisms not only changed Facebook’s platform in fundamental ways, but it also significantly altered the landscape of politics in America and elsewhere.

WIRED’s editor in chief Nick Thompson has just published—along with his co-author, contributing editor Fred Vogelstein—a lengthy cover story about Facebook’s “two years of hell.” The gripping saga shows how the social network’s power to affect how its users see the world, and its inaction in combatting bad actors, have had disastrous consequences.

Head of Instagram Adam Mosseri said in a CBS News interview with Gayle King that Facebook hasn't taken down a fake video of Mark Zuckerberg saying he's in control of "billions of people's stolen data" because the damage had already been done.

The company is working to figure out a "principled way" rather than making one-off decisions to address the problem with deepfake videos, which could spread misinformation incredibly easily via social media with unnervingly realistic replicas of high-profile individuals.

Instagram still hasn't taken down a fake video of Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg because "the damage is done."

CBS News on Tuesday released an interview with Instagram head Adam Mosseri, where Gayle King asked why Facebook hasn't yet taken down a CBS video of a computer-manipulated Mark Zuckerberg saying he's in control of "billions of people's stolen data."

Mosseri suggested that it's too late, since the video had already been up for a significant amount of time.

Instagram chief Adam Mosseri shed some light on how the social network decides what you see in a new blog post published on Tuesday. The explanation seems to be meant at least in part to combat persistent rumors that Instagram intentionally hides or disfavors certain posts, which Instagram says isn’t exactly true.

The short answer to how Instagram works is that it’s complicated. Instagram uses “thousands” of signals to determine what you see in your feed, according to Mosseri, and there isn’t just one algorithm that decides what shows up for you. But the company is also committed to better explaining why content is taken down and how the service surfaces posts, he writes. One of the more surprising revelations: most Instagram followers...

Facebook is testing the idea of dividing its news feed in two, separating commercial posts from personal news in a move that could lead some businesses to increase advertising.

The Facebook news feed, the centerpiece of the world's largest social network service, is a streaming series of posts such as photos from friends, updates from family members, advertisements and material from celebrities or other pages that a user has liked.

The test, which is occurring in six smaller countries, now offers two user feeds, according to a statement from the company: one feed focused on friends and family and a second dedicated to the pages that the customer has liked.

The change could force those who run pages, everyone from news outlets to musicians to sports teams, to pay to run advertisements if they want to be seen in the feed that is for friends and family.

The test is taking place in Bolivia, Cambodia, Guatemala, Serbia, Slovakia and Sri Lanka, and is likely to go on for months, Adam Mosseri, the Facebook executive in charge of the news feed, said.

Instagram suddenly lost its co-founders last week.

Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger were also the company’s CEO and CTO, respectively, and so their unexpected departure left two gaping holes at the top of the Facebook-owned business.

The position of CEO, at least, has been filled, with Facebook veteran Adam Mosseri taking over from Systrom as “Head of Instagram” with immediate effect.

The title change suggests Instagram’s top team may lose some of the autonomy it enjoyed since being acquired by Facebook in 2012, giving Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and co. more control over the direction the app takes from hereon in.

Mosseri joined Facebook in 2008 and in recent years ran the social networking site’s news feed before moving to Instagram as vice president of product in May, 2018.

In a post on the very app that he’ll now work to shape, Instagram’s new boss said he was “humbled and excited” to take on the role.
