Instagram is testing a new feature that will give users an alternative option to finstas. It’s called “flipside” and it allows people to create a secondary photo grid that only designated friends can see.

Early reactions are mixed. Some people seem excited about the update, while others wonder why they need to maintain yet another social media account. Some people are confused, which is understandable.

Mosseri Instagram users have been known to post pictures of themselves. As much as they used too, especially in their feeds. For an app that relies on advertising — much of it in users’ feeds — that’s less than ideal. So it’s not all that surprising Instagram would be looking for new ways to get people to spend more time posting to and scrolling their feeds.
