I feel this changed happened about a month ago and can’t find an answer as to why some people vs others are getting a different profile view?

I have 2 IG accounts, one for friends and family and one for just sharing memes. The first has a few hundred followers and the other has a few thousand. I get two different view when looking at peoples profiles and don’t seem to know why this is.

When checking IG on desktop or Safari web browser on my iPhone I get the same always standard view but these two screenshots are from the iOS IG app.

*note: none of my accounts are business accounts.

Notice the newer view doesn’t list the amount of posts.

I saw an article on ArsTechnica around Thanksgiving Week. It's some a/b testing they're doing for a future profile look. It'd be better if they shut down. I don't see the point of Instagram much less Facebook. Though I suppose if people enjoy the pissing contest that is sharing pictures of their food or their latest pedicure, then so be it. Mindless individuals.

I agree, mindless is the perfect word. I hate it, but it brings in revenue so there’s that. My kid uses TikTok which i don’t know how to use nor navigate but it seems like it’s the next Vine; he’ll it probably already is.
