Instagram in 2023 From Adam Mosseri 🎤
Adam Mosseri, head of Instagram, shares where Instagram is driving its focus in 2023.
- “Inspire people to be creative” through more visual customization and editing tools.
- “Help people discover things they love,” which is code for less of who you follow and more of who they think you should be following.
- “Spark connections between people.” You’ve probably already seen the addition of ‘Notes’ in the direct message tab of Instagram where you can update a “status-like” phrase for friends to see. This new feature was just the beginning of providing more engagement opportunities within IG. Be ready for even more conversation in the DMs.

Unfortunately, Twitter provided a great space for brands to have one-on-one conversations with consumers and build strong customer relationships that we can’t seem to find anywhere else. So now we wait and watch with one eye open and hope for the best.learn more
