When photo-sharing site Instagram announced its decision to tweak its feed last week, there has since been a huge uproar from its users. From celebrities pleading with fans to 'turn on post notifications' to users creating Mean Girls-inspired memes that read 'Stop trying to make push notifications happen', we've rounded up the best reactions below.

But wait, there's more! Instagram won't update its algorithm immediately. According to WWD, it will first experiment with the changes via test groups and most users will not experience the update any time soon. 

We can all breathe a little easier now. In the mean time, we'll take Calvin Harris's advice.
