I'm talking about last to last week's headlines in which the CEO declared Instagram is no longer a photo sharing app.

That sounds to me a little too literal interpretation of his comments. Sure, for better or worse they are planning to embrace video significantly harder and be more "entertaining" (whatever that is supposed to mean). But it doesn't mean people who are more into stills can't or won't use it to share and view photos just as before, or that Instagram doesn't want users to do that anymore.

It's not the first or last change Instagram has gone through that has little to do with photography; just think of the inclusion of the shopping functionality a while back as an example.
