Multiple Photos in One Instagram Post

Another Instagram update and another fairly fundamental change adding more complexity to the app.

You can now post multiple images or videos in one post without having to create a collage. Viewers then swipe left to scroll through the images. You can read the announcement on the Instagram blog here.

Will viewers take the trouble to scroll to each image in one post though? Many flick through their feed very quickly. I often do too to be honest. Will we notice when there are multiple shots and take the trouble to scroll sideways too? Maybe sometimes, if the first image is strong enough to catch our interest.

A useful feature? I'm not so sure, although the other recent additions that Instagram have made seem to have worked out fine so far.
