Instagram boss Adam Mosseri vowed Tuesday that the social app will “rethink what Instagram is” in 2022. In a video posted to Twitter, Mosseri said Instagram will focus on greater transparency in the New Year, among other goals. He didn’t directly address any of the past year’s scandals that rocked Instagram and parent company Meta (formerly known as Facebook).
Lawmakers of both parties came out swinging in a hearing on Wednesday with Adam Mosseri, the head of Instagram, expressing deep skepticism and anger toward the company for not doing enough to protect young users.
The appointment comes after the photo-sharing app’s co-founders resigned last week without giving a clear reason. Kevin Systrom, Instagram’s CEO, and Mike Krieger, its other co-founder, announced Adam Mosseri’s appointment Monday on the company blog.
