Instagram reels have been a great source of revenue generation for the company but the cult following of celebrities has drawn the attention of top officials of the platform, Adam Mosseri said- “We’re also going to need to evolve because the world is changing quickly and we’re going to have to change along with it,” Mosseri also added that photos are part of our heritage.
