Instagram boss Adam Mosseri laid out the company's priorities for 2022 in a tweet saying that the next year would be pivotal.

He said that the two important pillars were video and control, and the company will increase focus on Reels - Instagram's TikTok-like video curation service - as well as improve features while introducing new ones.

Mosseri added that Instagram will continue to consolidate all video around Reels and will introduce tools and more monetisation options for creators.
