I don’t know why Instagram seems to force these pointless updates down our throats. The first issue is the shop app being relocated. I don’t use the shop app, never will and with how big my phone is it’s an inconvenience to shift my grip to get to the mentions/likes button at the very top. Same with the reels button. I like the make a post button being in the center, if I want to watch reels I’ll go to the explore page. There was no logistical reason to switch these buttons. Secondly, why can I no longer see how many people viewed my story after 48 hours. It was already bad enough to remove who viewed it after 24 hours. The algorithm has been severely broken since last year, (and really before that). Also why have the name instead of the username be what shows up when someone messages you. Half the time I have no clue who messaged me because their name isn’t a good indicator of who they are. I have one friend that is just a single emoji.
I am a right leaning person who enjoys a harmless respectful debate but as soon as I start expressing my NON-radical veiws in a respectful manner I get banned from the app and they never even have a reason only “violation of messages guidelines” when my only two messages in the past month on that account were between my freind and someone who I respectfully showed evidence for different political scandals and whatnot. And during my messages with my freind it was only just “call me” “get on the game” “are you on the game” or “I can’t talk rn”
Long story short biased against right leaning individuals
So this app remains to not be optimized for the iPad…. Still.. Problems with Instagram on the following devices
Cant hit the confirm button to accept a follow when on their profile. I have to hit confirm only from the list of names under requests. Very limited on accepting and viewing profiles
-Windows The list that pops down when clicking on the heart works half the time . The pictures of peoples avatars are incredibly tiny, I have no idea who I’m looking at
this app is still so far behind.
For some reason reels is not working with the latest update. I’ve downloaded, deleted, reinstalled the app, restarted my phone, signed in and out. Nothing.It’s odd because it does not feature anything to do with reels… For example I know a few of my friends pages have reels on them and I cannot even see any of them. I contacted Instagram multiple times and did not even get one response. It is so frustrating and I’m still trying to find a way for it to work….
every day a new issue with this app now ALL of my saved IG story filters are disappeared, except a few random ones. Not even my own filters, that i created, hosted on my account, show up. I’m signed into a few accounts and it’s the same way on all. Super frustrating as i’m a small business and about to do a big photoshoot & wanted to use filters to capture some images, but now I have lost the entirety of my go-to filters.
The process of uploading and editing photo in insta is frustrating!!! As there are limited format for each post. You cant have a horizontal and vertical photo together. Also you cant edit story after uploading in case there is a typo error .and the process of story edit is frustrating specially the create mode always has bugs and errors and you should start over and over. Very time consuming!
No I don’t want to buy anything from your Instagram market. It’s a bunch of junk and taking up an entire tab that replaced an actual useful tab. I’d rather look at my interactions to keep me engaged in the app rather than the absolute garbage that is reels and shop. Are you a social media platform for posting or a tik tok reposting and drop shipping company? Seriously?
It’s 2021 and you guys just keep complicating the chronological order of of the followers, following, likes and comments, assuming it’s better for us when really it only makes the app SO MUCH MORE frustrating to use… but pls pls pls fix this, I want to be more considerate of the people contributing to my growth on this app and accurate.
I rate this three stars because for some reason with the new update their is new themes for the chat and for some reason my android and apple phone it’s not their at all and yes I updated it and cleared it be I used the app after it updated. Like how their is supposed to be an Olivia rodrigo sour theme and it’s just not their.
They don’t actually care about the app being good. All they want is to sell your data and show you ads. Want an indication of how little they care? There has, for approximately one YEAR, been a bug where changing the volume of a video mutes it. Every. Time. Just go out and touch grass, this app isn’t worth your sanity.
