“That said, I need to be honest — I do believe that more and more of Instagram is going to become video over time. We see this even if we change nothing,” Mosseri added.

“If you look at what people like and consume and view on Instagram, that’s also shifting more and more to video over time, even when we stop changing anything. “So we’re going to have to lean into that shift while continuing to support photos.”
