    We can send direct messages to anyone without having their phone number. We just have to search them on insta and then we can chat with them with or without following them.

  • Inaccessible. Many problems. Aug 29, 2020

    By Mnwreck
    I’ve got a couple Instagram accounts, and no two have the same features as the other. It’s incredibly confusing and annoying to switch between two accounts on the same app that don’t even have the same features. One might have a different, newer version of DM’s while another has been stuck with an old version and has never been updated. For the past two months my main account has been action blocked almost every other week. Instagram has made me change my password 8 times within then as well. I rely on posting often to keep my audience and gain new followers (as well as to catch the eyes of potential customers, as I am an artist that makes money off of commissions) and I obviously can’t do this when Instagram blocks me from posting. I don’t share my account with anyone, I’ve never purchased followers, and I’ve never used any third party apps with Instagram. So it’s beyond me why they keep doing this. Not to mention, the support is awful. If you have an issue or if you need help with something, you might as well forget it. The support team is incredibly unhelpful and has always been this way. I’ve seen accounts post highly illegal content that Instagram deems as safe for all ages! Even after reporting. Any legitimate problems I’ve tried to report have been met with silence. The idea of Instagram is great. But the app itself is becoming worse and worse as time goes on.
  • Consider this before you download! Mar 10, 2021

    By someonerereEE
    If you are considering downloading Instagram, I'd say you definitely should👌 I use it for my art account, and I'm currently trying to sell are on it🎨. It is a great place to grow a small business, and also connect with your friends🫂! A few updates I'd love to see are- maybe making it so you can save reels to your collections instead of having to go all the way to your account and add each reel in 😓 Also I'd love to be able to customize my ig page more by maybe having an option to change the color of the background of my page? 🟥🟧🟨🟩🟦🟪 That would be so fun! While ig is a great app for communication and business growth, it also has a few bad sides like it is extremely addicting, and many accounts contain inappropriate content.😕 I don't think it would be very easy to completely eliminate inappropriate content, but it would be nice to have a warning such as "this page may contain explicit content" or something like that. 👍 Also, many Instagram pages promote things like surgery, and "perfect bodies" 🙄🙅‍♀️ which is not really healthy because it can lower self esteem and stuff like that. Just definitely be careful!! But yea anyways I think it's a great app so have fun with it 🥸
  • Easy to use, yet trying to keep up with the competition Jul 4, 2021

    By MLP_Lover23
    Hi there! I just got Instagram a week ago and I will have to say, it is a great way to connect with my friends, see what they are up to and a great source for school clubs and events. However, I have heard news that Instagram is becoming a social media video sharing app instead of focused on the photo aspect. This is highly disappointing because we already have so many different apps that are MEANT for videos. A lot of my friends are artists and photographers who make money through Instagram. This is where they are most likely to switch over to another platform. I completely understand why they are doing this, but that is just gonna tear the app apart. I would like the people of Instagram to reconsider this update that is up and coming soon. Or even ohh right now, who knows. If you want to add more video features, go ahead, but please don’t throw artists, business and photographers down the drain like that. Make sure to give both parties the right amount of attention. Besides that, I absolutely adore Instagram and how much security privacy it goes for private accounts such as my own. Either way, I really hope you see this Instagram and reply. I know a lot people who are considering leaving the app cause of this new update. Thank you so much for your time!

    The latest update has stuffed up the video playbacks in the app. I like to watch videos with sound muted on videos due to my hypersensitive hearing, but now when scrolling through my feed, some videos play automatically, while other vids you have to click the sound on so the videos will play. If you mute sound again, the videos stop playing. Very frustrating insta.
  • Maintenance Jul 14, 2018

    By andrew_colin_
    I have had a frustrating issue for several months now where certain features either make the app crash suddenly, or do not work entirely. One feature that does not work at all. Not a single time... is the ability to post multiple photos in a singular post. I’ve tried with just 2 photos. I’ve tried with the maximum amount of photos in a photoset(10). Not a single time has this worked. After adding a caption with some hashtags, tagging friends, and waiting for the post to load. It fails to post every single time. I’ve tried this on both my old phone iPhone 6S plus, as well as my most recent phone purchase the iPhone X. This feature has never worked for me, often times being so frustrated I’d neglect the app for a few days and then find myself back. After attempting to delete the app as well as the app cache and reinstalling on both phones the feature is still inoperative. I also agree with many other Instagram users that the feed is very annoying that I’ll see posts I’ve seen already, or posts from several days ago. Chronological order?? If Instagram was more oriented on creating a seamless working application they may have a lot more users, or more frequent users of the app. Every bug I’ve experienced, I’ve submitted through the in app report a bug.
  • Good app with too many flaws Sep 21, 2020

    By Km_nieves
    Instagram is perhaps the application I use the most, and I really enjoy it when it’s at its best. However, the flaws are simply overwhelming at times. I’m writing this review because my account has been wrongfully shadow-banned and action blocked over 6 times now without an actual just cause for it. Every time, it says I was allegedly “sharing my account with a service that helps me get more likes and followers” even though that’s blatantly untrue. I have 0 posts, 0 likes and well under 1000 followers. I have written 4 detailed reports explaining my situation but it has been to no avail. Every time this happens, I’m forced to change my password, I’m logged out of my account and then I’m action blocked for an entire week. Every time I try to like or comment, it gives me the option to report it if I believe they have made a mistake but nothing works. My account is never checked, my week long action blocks are never reduced or lifted, my reports are never acknowledged and I’m always getting wronged. I also really dislike the fact that I cannot easily contact anyone from Instagram to help me with issues like these, I can only leave long, written reports for you to ignore and do nothing about. Please revise your algorithms and consider having a Tech Support line with human responders for unique and recurring problems like this one.

    I haven't been a fan of Instagram on the pixel for awhile, but this new update made me write this review. Still unable to add multiple clips together so they show up as 1 clip, there are constant resolution issues (4k or 1080p clips that look like 480p- even with solid connection), choosing cover for clip is worst now, trimming clips is problematic (upload a 10 second clip, cut it down to 5, still uploads 10 sec clip). Overall, frustration is mainly with uploading and editing.
  • Hard To Navigate with the New Layout Jul 20, 2020

    By babieeaj
    first off i’d like to say that i’ve been using instagram since 2015. i’ve seen some changes over the course of these past few years that were very good for the overall use of the app, and some that just made navigating the app more difficult. the main reason why instagram has become so popular over the years was it’s simple layout that made it easy to access and interact with followers and discover people. but now, in 2020, likes and view counts are hidden, the feed isn’t in chronological order, the algorithm only allows you to see posts of only a handful of people you follow, and now the notifications have moved. if instagram wants to keep its users satisfied, then they need to go back to the classic look. keeping the classic layout with home, explore page, upload, notifications, and profile at the bottom makes the app easier to navigate. there is no reason why the shopping bag needs to be on the bottom bar because not everyone shops from instagram. there are a lot of scammers on the app! instead of changing the layout, instagram needs to fix the algorithm, put posts on the timeline back in chronological order, get rid of bot and spam accounts, and remove accounts/posts that don’t follow the community guidelines. now more than ever, there are many accounts that spread hate and misinformation! why was changing the layout a priority? fix it and bring likes and view counts back!

    Very frustrating. Reels crash constantly when I'm trying to put one together, can't write captions because of some sort of glitch. I posted a reel a month ago and just saw a few days ago the caption and hashtags have all disappeared. Can't share posts to my story. Everything was working fine up until a month ago and then it all went downhill
  • Annoying issue Jul 2, 2020

    By Moonstuh
    Instagram is a great app to use on your free time and to connect with other people. This is why I was really interested in using Instagram to try and help out my barber career. The one annoying issue I’m having is when it comes to trying to add an action button for booking. I have tried this with three different booking apps so far and with no luck. For example I am trying to add my square appointments app as a book option on my business account. The videos I have seen about how to do this, show that once you click on the app you use to schedule your clients, you need to enter in the URL that will link them to your booking page. I believe this is where the problem is. Instagram doesn’t give me an option to enter a URL. The order that Instagram sends me is ( connect website > please select business to connect > connect to Instagram > connection successful). Then when I refresh my page there is no action button. I have used three different booking apps in hopes that one of them would work and none of them do. I have the online booking option turned on within the app as well and it still doesn’t work. It’s extremely frustrating and to add onto it, I can’t find anywhere online to help me. There’s no way to contact Instagram, at least from what I have seen and it feels like it’s never going to work for me. This app could easily be a 5 star, but this one problem is really making it hard.

    Oct 20, 2021 update seems to not play videos if the sound is muted. Once you un-mute the video plays, but if you mute, it stops. Not sure if this is an Android issue but it didn't use to do this. Not everyone can listen to the sound when viewing videos depending on circumstances. Fix this!!!

    Updat* October 2021* it still crashes all the time. The hands-free mode stopped working. Msg stopped working. Filters don't work now. I uninstalled + reinstalled. Not fixed. app crashes ALL the time. And I just updated the app thinking itd fix this... wrong. . IG is now claiming female breasts are "genitals" so if you are covering your own breasts with your hands, they are claiming that's touching your genitals. The only reason I use IG is because it's the only option.
  • Lack of report system Dec 31, 2020

    By my Mustang
    Instagram has more potential than it has now. But a few issues are what keeping them from pulling out of from the others. First is the amount of bots, fake, and duplicate accounts that are on IG. Myself and some others (possibly) use IG as a place for photography, businesses, reaching a broader community to share the similar likes, or just for fun. With those few listed accounts, it limits who can see your posts and your account. I can see/understand if someone has a business and personal account. But to have 3+ accounts that are the exactly the same and are troll pages then why keep them up? Also there are times especially now (not sure if it’s happening to some people or not) is accounts and people who are clearly going against the TOS and guidelines with their posts and accounts. No matter if it’s drugs, tobacco, alcohol, nudity or sexual images. Some are showing up in popular feed (whatever it’s called) and some though scrolling through posts. Like earlier yesterday/today I tried reporting dozens of posts and accounts of completely naked women and a few of drugs and tobacco in use that showed up and all IG said was that “it doesn’t go against their guidelines”. How does all of this not go against the guidelines?? Also reported a account that supposedly had gotten “removed” on a couple different occasions but still on their as of yesterday with basically no consequences other than a couple pictures that were reported and removed. So I don’t know.

    This new "snap scrolling" feature makes the app almost unusable. It's so hard to read the contents of a large post without it snapping away from focus making it impossible to see things. It makes me feel nauseous trying to read stuff on the screen and it regularly glitches out to the point where I can't even reach the navigation bar on the top. Talk about fixing an issue no one had. Makes me not use the app anymore
  • Please Stop With The Horrible Updates Nov 14, 2020

    By alec rojo
    I've been using Instagram since 2013 and every update I've gotten since then has been disappointing. This newest update (version 166.1) is one of the most annoying and ugliest looking updates yet. First of all, why would I want to connect Facebook messenger to my Instagram account?? It's so unnecessary and of course the DM feature on Instagram is basically mutating into Facebook messenger with the message reactions and the different colored messages. Secondly, the shopping feature being on the bottom bar is the absolute worst. I've never shopped on Instagram and never will but I'm stuck with this completely useless button on my toolbar and I always accidentally hit it when I just want to take a peak at the explore page. Thirdly, the reels feature is absolutely awful (I know that was from a previous update) and I hate that I have the reels icon on my toolbar. The toolbar in general is getting way too confusing and too many things are getting added to it. The fact that I can't even post a photo from my toolbar is probably the most annoying feature. I love Instagram and every time I get an update I just say to myself "Well, I guess I'll give it a try" but all of these updates that have happened in the last 1-2 years have pushed me over the edge. Probably going to delete the app because these updates have been nothing but awful ever since Facebook took over. Hate what they've done with it. Stop trying to turn Instagram into Facebook.

    By Brandon Kusnirik
    It seems like its new "features" seem even less intuitive each update. It redirects you to a NEW UI when you turn on a regular Video's Sound, I haven't been able to see every music track for two years, and their emphasis on Reels and Shopping really doesn't make sense. Like, realistically, HOW much money is Facebook making from Shopping that they're putting it as one of the front and center aspects.

  • Algorithm Jan 20, 2018

    By falloutjane
    I’ve been an Instagram user for a long time now and I really enjoy the app. Definitely my favorite social media platform. I, unlike most, really like Instagram stories and I love how you can save stuff without having to screenshot. My complaint however is my home feed. I’m tired of only seeing posts from 5 of the 200 people I follow. I wish there was a way to have it be in chronological order, but you can make it so that specific people do show up at the top of your feed. This may sound a little silly but it’s pretty embarrassing when you accidentally like and comment on a post from 5 days ago as if it was posted ten minutes ago. Really I don’t understand why Instagram is making all these frankly useless updates to the algorithm. Instead of that they should be cracking down on how the thumbnail (starter photo?) for a video has nothing to do with the video. Now that’s something that needs worked on. I feel that these algorithm changes only benefit the people exploiting Instagram and hurts regular users content intake. This is a little long so in short great app but please stop messing with my feed, or at least give me the option to change it back to the way it was if I so please.
  • Problems right now Apr 19, 2019

    By Ben609tattoo
    Hey so I am a tattoo artist and I use Instagram basically to contact and find new clientele. Over the last two years with Instagram I have had amazing results. Unfortunately over the last week I've been having a lot of problems. Accounts that aren't following me and a lot of my followers aren't seeing my new posts they said I was always on there different hashtags they follow and now I'm not also my posts have drastically went down in likes and all my likes are from my followers no new accounts which is very different then the previous weeks and months . I also have been putting out way more content and it's better so my interactions and likes and followers should go up like they have been but for some reason all of the sudden no one is seeing me finding me and like I said even my followers keep telling me the can't see my posts. I love Instagram it's been an amazing platform to grow and literally is the a third of the reason I am successful and I can support my daughter and wife but I've had a huge drop recently and it's hurt my business and I'm sure it's an easy fix or there's a way to make it better or something but it definitely is upsetting at the moment.
  • SCREW INSTAGRAM! Aug 2, 2021

    By emilyhopec
    This is the worst app and I hope something similar to Instagram comes out instead. They disabled my account have been disabling peoples accounts left and right mistakenly or claiming that we’ve violated their terms! They won’t tell you exactly what you did wrong. They’ll just log you out and if you do get it reactivated all they do is just say sorry for the inconvenience. Like WHAT. Do better Instagram. You’re targeting the wrong people. There’s so much nudity on this app that doesn’t get taken down. There’s SO MANY FAKE ACCOUNTS on this app! Y’all are worrying and disabling the wrong accounts. Horrible app. Doesn’t let you appeal. I’ve been disable for almost a month now and have contact Instagram daily through sending forms because ANOTHER THING! You can’t talk to a REAL PERSON EVER! How horrible is that! This app is the worst. Thank God for Tik Tok replacing Instagram. I do love sharing photos but hopefully a better app comes out. I’ve lost all hope with Instagram. My account is still disabled and I even made a new one! Praying to get my old one back and now the app is saying my account is suspicious and that they’ll disabled me if I don’t confirm myself in the next 30 days. This app is complete BULLSH*T.
  • some things need to be fixed..... Aug 27, 2020

    By Millysmiles10
    First of I don’t like how if you have a really good quality picture instagram ruins the quality! THIS NEEDS TO BE FIXED RIGHT AWAY! US POSTING A PICTURE SHOULDN'T RUIN THE QUALITY OF THE POST! Second I don’t like how some people’s instagrams have different stuff than others. Like how for some people their can choose to color their messages and some can’t. It’s really unfair to others that don’t even have the option. The same thing goes with the bouncing text letter thing. Some people are able to move the text and it like wiggles and stiff while others do not have that option. Also it took so long for everyone to get the option to be able to share a post to your story. I remember i went years without having the option to share posts to your story, even after i sent many reports to instagram about this. So of course I was super happy when I FINALLY had the option. I have no clue why it took them sooo long to fix that when so many people were reporting that. Anyway I hope this helps and I hope instagram gets faster at fixing their bugs and make sure everyone’s instagrams are fair. Like have the same options and stuff. That’s it for now! 0w0
  • Fix in update Dec 20, 2017

    By Megan3133
    Okay so I absolutely LOVE Instagram. Recently I have noticed it is not loading all of the posts. I will go on Facebook and see a picture posted that states it is linked with Instagram but never see it on my Instagram feed. Also when you refresh it will take some of them completely off of the feed instead of putting them towards the bottom. Can you please fix it! This is causing people to not get any likes at all. My followers say they never see my pictures unless they search my profile. I keep seeing the same pictures over and over again. Some days I get half of the likes I normally do because people do not see my pictures. This is very frustrating. Another thing that is annoying is the adds that I don’t ask to see. They are very creepy because they relate to the things that I like but that’s not why I got instagram. It seems like this app is trying to copy every other social media app such as Snapchat and Facebook. I have been having this issues about loading pictures and my followers not seeing my stuff for about a year now. Can we please go back to the old instagram where everything was in chronological order?
  • Needs to fix glitches in the app Mar 19, 2019

    By Brianna Renee S
    Instagram has always been my favorite social media app, however, recently I have had VARIOUS problems due to malfunctions within the app. At the beginning of September 2018, I was logged out of my Instagram account for no reason at all. No big deal, I’ll just log myself back in, right? Wrong. Every time I tried to log in it said an error had occurred. I logged into my Instagram through the safari app to make sure my password was correct, and it allowed me to do so. Now knowing that I was using the correct password, I tried again to log into my account through the Instagram app itself. No luck, once again. I contacted Instagram through email and they said there was nothing they could do about the problem. It is now March of 2019 and the problem is still occurring. Instagram needs to fix this situation. Which according to Google, multiple people are facing similar issues as well. Please Instagram, fix these glitches within the app or help the people who are facing these problems. This is a very irritating problem and the Instagram Team just seems to push it to the side. This is not an efficient way to run a company.
  • Feedback and suggestions improvements Feb 10, 2019

    By a non-basic teen
    So, Instagram is like pretty great, it’s my favorite social media platform. However I wish that the creators could make a few improvements and adjustments. First of all, I know that there’s a highlights section for your stories, but I wish there could be a folder to combine posts. For example, I have a drawing account and it would be nice if I could have a place in my account where I could combine posts from past months. D’ya know what I mean? I tried to screenshot all the posts from the past month, but it was just too much work. My second point is about stories. I know that y’all have added polls and “type something” features. What if you added another feature like those two but the responses were anonymous to the person who posted the story. Sometimes I wanna respond to one of my friends, but I feel embarrassed or insecure about my answer. This feature is not a necessity, nor a need, but it would attract a lot of attention to the youth, like me. Anyway, I believe that these pieces of feedback will liven up the app. Hopefully y’all add at least one of these in. Sorry for the long post, I had a lot to say, obviously.
  • Easy to use, yet trying to keep up with the competition Jul 4, 2021

    By MLP_Lover23
    Hi there! I just got Instagram a week ago and I will have to say, it is a great way to connect with my friends, see what they are up to and a great source for school clubs and events. However, I have heard news that Instagram is becoming a social media video sharing app instead of focused on the photo aspect. This is highly disappointing because we already have so many different apps that are MEANT for videos. A lot of my friends are artists and photographers who make money through Instagram. This is where they are most likely to switch over to another platform. I completely understand why they are doing this, but that is just gonna tear the app apart. I would like the people of Instagram to reconsider this update that is up and coming soon. Or even ohh right now, who knows. If you want to add more video features, go ahead, but please don’t throw artists, business and photographers down the drain like that. Make sure to give both parties the right amount of attention. Besides that, I absolutely adore Instagram and how much security privacy it goes for private accounts such as my own. Either way, I really hope you see this Instagram and reply. I know a lot people who are considering leaving the app cause of this new update. Thank you so much for your time!
  • Maintenance Jul 14, 2018

    By andrew_colin_
    I have had a frustrating issue for several months now where certain features either make the app crash suddenly, or do not work entirely. One feature that does not work at all. Not a single time... is the ability to post multiple photos in a singular post. I’ve tried with just 2 photos. I’ve tried with the maximum amount of photos in a photoset(10). Not a single time has this worked. After adding a caption with some hashtags, tagging friends, and waiting for the post to load. It fails to post every single time. I’ve tried this on both my old phone iPhone 6S plus, as well as my most recent phone purchase the iPhone X. This feature has never worked for me, often times being so frustrated I’d neglect the app for a few days and then find myself back. After attempting to delete the app as well as the app cache and reinstalling on both phones the feature is still inoperative. I also agree with many other Instagram users that the feed is very annoying that I’ll see posts I’ve seen already, or posts from several days ago. Chronological order?? If Instagram was more oriented on creating a seamless working application they may have a lot more users, or more frequent users of the app. Every bug I’ve experienced, I’ve submitted through the in app report a bug.

  • Great app, feed flaws. Jul 26, 2018

    By Te rates
    Overall, Instagram is an excellent social media app. However, I have found a few flaws in the way Instagram looks. For example, the comments are not in chronological order;making them very confusing. I have found a similar problem in the feed algorithm. They are not in chronological order anymore. You will see a post from 2 weeks ago, and then a post from 2 DAYS ago. Next, there should be a bigger time frame for videos. You cab only have a video that is 1 minute long. I wanted to post a slime review, but the video was 2 minutes long so I had to do it in 2 separate videos even though all of the slimes came together. Finally, I think you should fix the messages. You can always see if someone has seen your direct message. This isn't exactly a problem, but I think there should be an option, in case someone does not want people to know when they have seen their messages. Please take these suggestions into consideration. I know I am not the only person complaining about these things. Other than those problems, I have only had good experiences with Instagram. It is very easy and fun to use. You can share pictures and videos with your community or even the world! All in all, Instagram is a fantastic app, but needs a few fixes.
  • Needs Some Improvement Dec 21, 2018

    By 🌼Caitlyn🌼
    I’ve had Instagram since 2013, which is a very long time 😂 It’s definitely changed over the years. A few problems I’m facing now, however, include my explore page resetting (I’d have to exit the app & go back in to fix that), and not having sound when I try to upload a video on an extra account. I also feel that a few of the features that used to be on there were so much better and easier to get to. Archived Stories, for example. Whenever your story would disappear after the 24 hours ended, you’d get a notification saying how many people viewed it. Now, that’s not there anymore, and I have to go to my archived just to see who looked at my stories. Another thing is the hashtag following (or whatever it is 🤷‍♀️). For me personally, I’ve never used this. I tried it once and just thought it was annoying cause the posts would go on my feed, and I’d be thinking that I’m just following these accounts when I wasn’t. It really isn’t the greatest feature to me, as I could just go to my explore page and find the same posts. Regardless of these minor things though, I still use Instagram pretty much every day. 😂 It’d just be nicer if these issues were resolved or taken into account by me writing this.
  • A sad user Jan 2, 2019

    By uzer001098876
    My Instagram feed is now filled with posts from advertisers and accounts of which I don’t even follow. I never see my friends on my feed anymore unless I am scrolling for 10 minutes and people’s pictures are not getting as many likes. I can speak from experience because I have watched my likes go down as Instagram has changed their algorithm. People like things which are unique! Keep Instagram different and unique and make other platforms want to be like you, not you wanting to be like them. If the changes are based off of Statistics, realize the functions of other apps. Snapchat for instance, people like it simply because it is very private. On Instagram you are able to send pictures to people however they can be uploaded from the camera roll and used to look like the picture was taken just then.. this makes Instagram very user friendly for catfishes. Just keep the traditional Instagram aspects and forget about conformity. Make it so dm pictures- if uploaded from camera roll, it states that. Additionally, make the feed tendered to followers which a users look at most frequently. Because of these issues with the algorithm, even though I used Instagram since 2012, I must say goodbye until changes are made :(
  • Fix this please! Jun 10, 2018

    By --wolfg1rl--
    I really enjoy using Instagram but I have one issue and that is that when I try to upload more than one photo into one post it crops my photos to the same size as the first one in the post. I want to be able to post all of them into one post and have all of the pictures be the original size. This would be great for photographers like me who go out on photoshoots and want to put up one post with their best photos. It is hard to do that when all of your photos are cropped the exact same way. It should be the same way as Facebook. I am not saying we make Instagram exactly like Facebook because they are two different social medias, but I think it would be nice if we could upload photos on Instagram the same way we can upload them on Facebook. With Facebook you have one post with multiple pictures that are all the original sizes. You can then click on them and look through them individually before exiting and going through the rest of your feed. Instagram should allow us to have the option to upload our photos like this. We should have an option to do this If we have a photography account. I know not everyone would want to upload their photos this way but many would choose to do this.
  • great app, some changes would be amazing:) Jul 29, 2019

    By Blobycorn101
    Instagram is a great app that I use on a daily basis, I love it and i’ve had it multiple years, but there are some changes that would make this app go above and beyond that me, and many others, would appreciate. First off, after you post multiple pictures in one post, you should be able to delete some pictures out of the post without having to delete the whole post. This would make so many users more happy because there are countless times when you accidentally post one picture in a group of pictures that you don’t like, but you didn’t realize it in time and you already have many likes and comments so you don’t want to delete the whole post and you just stay stuck on what to do. Also, if you creators made a way to preview certain pictures on a private account that the creator of the account puts up that would be amazing! It’s difficult to tell who some people are sometimes when you are only able see their profile pic so if you were able to select a few pictures from camera roll to put up (no likes or comments involved) it would be a huge help. Thank you creators for the amazing app:) ~Kailee
  • Great, but needs some issues fixed. Apr 30, 2020

    By bronze9
    Instagram as a whole ever since I got it last summer has a been a great experience for me. I’ve been able to connect with my friends faster than I would’ve without it, and it’s a good thing to have when I’m bored and have nothing else to do. However, after having Instagram for many months I have discovered a couple of issues that are driving me nuts. First, on the home page once every so often the several most recent posts get mixed up in a seemingly RANDOM ORDER. I don’t like this at all because the post that gets moved to the top is most likely a post that I don’t want to see again for a while, like today that post is one that I don’t like at all and would rather not see AGAIN, and also because I someone who likes his home page posts to be precisely in CHRONOLOGICAL ORDER. Second, when an Instagram update comes around, the caption for it should say more than just fixing bugs and issues on Instagram, like what exactly that update is going to do with certain pages on the app and why. Please take the time to deal with these issues that I’ve stated above so that in the near future I’ll be able to confidently give Instagram a FIVE STAR RATING instead of a four star rating.
  • It's good but I have some suggestion Jan 21, 2019

    By The name is Bella
    I it enjoy Instagram, it is my favorite social media app. I love looking at other people's pictures and staying in touch with family members that are away. It is a source for a lot of my creative inspiration and I love that aspect. All the new tools that Instagram has incorporated into its app are so amazing and helpful. I look forward to the new features that they will one day include in the future. One that I hope they include is the ability it add/edit postures once they have been uploaded. This is something that I struggle with all the time, whenever I'm posting multiple pictures at a time using their sliding picture format, I cannot add onto, delete, or rearrange the order of these photos. I recently just uploaded a pair of two pictures to my page only later to realize that I forgot to add a third photo that I was planning to put. I think it would be helpful if Instagram added an option to edit pictures in such a way that we are permitted to edit captions. I do not wish to delete the whole post, but to simply add one more photo to my post. Instagram please listen to this message for it will help my and several of my other friends who struggle with this same issue!

    The latest update has stuffed up the video playbacks in the app. I like to watch videos with sound muted on videos due to my hypersensitive hearing, but now when scrolling through my feed, some videos play automatically, while other vids you have to click the sound on so the videos will play. If you mute sound again, the videos stop playing. Very frustrating insta.
  • Good app with too many flaws Sep 21, 2020

    By Km_nieves
    Instagram is perhaps the application I use the most, and I really enjoy it when it’s at its best. However, the flaws are simply overwhelming at times. I’m writing this review because my account has been wrongfully shadow-banned and action blocked over 6 times now without an actual just cause for it. Every time, it says I was allegedly “sharing my account with a service that helps me get more likes and followers” even though that’s blatantly untrue. I have 0 posts, 0 likes and well under 1000 followers. I have written 4 detailed reports explaining my situation but it has been to no avail. Every time this happens, I’m forced to change my password, I’m logged out of my account and then I’m action blocked for an entire week. Every time I try to like or comment, it gives me the option to report it if I believe they have made a mistake but nothing works. My account is never checked, my week long action blocks are never reduced or lifted, my reports are never acknowledged and I’m always getting wronged. I also really dislike the fact that I cannot easily contact anyone from Instagram to help me with issues like these, I can only leave long, written reports for you to ignore and do nothing about. Please revise your algorithms and consider having a Tech Support line with human responders for unique and recurring problems like this one.
  • Still good, not great (iPhone X) Nov 10, 2017

    By vlpage
    I have pretty much the same comments as everyone else, regarding bringing back chronological order of the feed, stories being a ripoff of Snapchat (but I believe Facebook, instagram, and Snapchat are all owned by the same company if I’m not mistaken), etc. BUT ALSO, I just bought an iPhone X and the app needs some serious revamping be compatible with the new phone. They did a good job of having the layout fill the full screen view of the X; HOWEVER, when you go to upload a new profile photo, if you click on any photo besides the very most recent one in your photo album, the layout glitches, and the “Cancel” and “Done” buttons move up on top of the iPhone’s time and battery displays. I wish I could attach a photo to this review, but I hope my explanation makes sense. This glitch makes it impossible to click either of the buttons, and you have to physically kill the app and reopen it in order to get out of the screen and back to using the app. This happens every time you try to change the profile photo. If you use the most recent photo in your album, it works mostly fine, with just a little awkward cropping on top. This is just frustrating because obviously people might want to be able to upload ANY of their pictures as a profile photo! This glitch really needs to be worked out ASAP

    I have been using this app for many years and the past few months I have been unable to repost a public profiles post or story on my own story. After emailing the help centre it was not fixed and a new "reshare" option appears when I went to add to my story. This option has now disappeared and I am unable to reshare normally even after several updates of the app. Please fix

    I don't know if it was a recent update or something but the changes made on my search feed have significantly altered to someone who wants to see scenic and architectural photography. I don't mind a couple of photos to be included but I don't want a whole page full, I have tried refreshing and I get even more photos than before.
  • Good social media app, bad user interface design Aug 20, 2020

    By ropetapetite
    The app works for what it needs to work as. But for whatever reason, the user interface constantly changes and there is absolutely no indication that it is meant to change in their version history updates. It becomes slightly irritating that the app will work one way one day and the next some random change will be made to either the explore page or the home page that just doesn't make sense based off of its history. My example right now would be the new reels that were introduced. Now when I go on the explore page there is a huge portion of it being taken up by reels that I don’t want there. Sure, reels is cool but I went to the explore page, not the reels page. Another example that also happened recently was where I opened the app one day and my home page didn’t show any of the pages I followed and instead showed random pages. It took me a minute until I realized I had to click on “see older posts” before I could see the old posts. Not that I care for this too much, but it was just irritating for no reason to suddenly have pages I don’t follow showing up in the section of the app meant for only pages that I follow. That’s about all I can remember but there has been a history other similar changes in the past as well that I vaguely remember.
  • every big update brings me great pain Oct 22, 2020

    By Pupsrcute
    I can never say that an instagram update has ever thrilled me in recent years. Every single time this app has a massive overhaul, the controls become even more clunky and jammed together, I don’t even know what it’s trying to be anymore. I’ve been on this app for 7 years. In those 7 years, the notification/activity tab has been in the right corner, just left of the account button. So it baffles me as to why someone would feel the need to move it to the most unconventional place possible. It is so terribly out of the way now, and not only that, it’s been replaced with a shopping button, so every time my dumb ADHD self goes to check my notifications, I’m sent to some bootleg Wish page. To whichever one of you working at instagram decided to cram the activity button into the top corner with 2 other tabs, I truly hope you have an awful day. Just an unpleasant time. I hope you get a parking ticket, and your car runs out of gas. And you go to the kitchen to find your spouse has tried a new recipe for dinner, and it’s just not very good. And your computer crashes at a very inconvenient time, and you were using an adobe product and forgot to save recently, so you lose a lot of progress on whatever garbage your team concocted to ruin the experience of your user base. I truly despise you.
  • Please stop making unnecessary changes Dec 17, 2017

    By Aperralll
    I am finding it harder to use Instagram with every update. Changes that are being made are unnecessary and feel unnatural to me. I can’t see posts in chronological order, I have “suggestions” on the feed which I go to see ONLY what the people I’m following have been up to. That’s been slightly annoying, but now in the explore feed when I click on one post with the intention to scroll through all the posts suggested to me from various users... instead I’m met with only one users posts, most of which I’m not interested in and it’s annoying to have to go back and click the next picture to see the next meme or what-have-it, causing me to close the app and open FaceBook or Twitter instead as they aren’t making changes that are majorly affecting the way users browse content. I don’t know who instagram has put in charge of these updates, but every single update gets worse. ALSO not to mention, the app will automatically follow accounts that I have either never encountered or had no interest in following. I have never left a review in the AppStore but Instagram used to be my favorite social media outlet and now I’m much more fond of other things due to some of the updates and I think a lot of people might feel this way about the path instagram is taking.
  • New Update Aug 26, 2020

    By Eurasia☺️
    I love Instagram, it’s like a more modern version of Facebook thats basic enough for my grandma to understand but still fun for me to use. However I don’t know if this is a fluke or apart of the update. A message came up saying Instagram limits how much likes we can do on comments at a time to stop bullying... I just want to know who thought this was a good idea. This is a social media app that’s like the whole point, liking is literally the foundation of every media. If you have a limit whether your intentions are bad or not your going to end up being wiped for existence. And also I don’t know who thought a limit on liking comments would prevent bullying but that person has obviously never really been bullied in their entire life because that does nothing. The only thing limiting likes is going to do is leave Instagram with bad rating and have your audience delete the app and go to another platform that allows them to do what social media is suppose to be able to do. Speaking of such I won’t delete the app yet because I’m hoping this is a fluke but I will be switching to another platform, for the rest of the month, that is able to do its job. I appreciate the concern for bullying but find a way to help prevent it that doesn’t effect everyone and take away from the purpose of social media.
  • Instagram is Digging its Own Grave Dec 24, 2020

    By NeedForMeem101
    First of all, I’ve only been using Instagram for around 5 years —maybe less— but I’ve been noticing that update after update, the app has become harder to use, uncreative, and, dare I say, annoying. I don’t exactly understand why the “create post” button was replaced by the reels button; I get that it is probably to promote reels, but there are much better ways to do that, such as put it in the place where the “create post” button is right now, or put it in the drop-down menu in the profile section. I also feel the same way about the heart button moving, because as someone who never uses shopping on Instagram, I would much rather look at who liked my most recent post(s) rather than whatever shopping shows me. Secondly, Instagram needs to stop ripping off other social media apps; I don’t know if this is because it was bought out by Facebook, but Instagram took the biggest details of Snapchat, TikTok, and Facebook, and miraculously managed to find a way to meld them into their app. It’s obvious that Instagram’s company is taking these ideas so people would use their app more, but I feel like people would use the app if it was more unique. To be blunt, Instagram should stop trying to be something else; Instagram should just be Instagram.
  • Hard To Navigate with the New Layout Jul 20, 2020

    By babieeaj
    first off i’d like to say that i’ve been using instagram since 2015. i’ve seen some changes over the course of these past few years that were very good for the overall use of the app, and some that just made navigating the app more difficult. the main reason why instagram has become so popular over the years was it’s simple layout that made it easy to access and interact with followers and discover people. but now, in 2020, likes and view counts are hidden, the feed isn’t in chronological order, the algorithm only allows you to see posts of only a handful of people you follow, and now the notifications have moved. if instagram wants to keep its users satisfied, then they need to go back to the classic look. keeping the classic layout with home, explore page, upload, notifications, and profile at the bottom makes the app easier to navigate. there is no reason why the shopping bag needs to be on the bottom bar because not everyone shops from instagram. there are a lot of scammers on the app! instead of changing the layout, instagram needs to fix the algorithm, put posts on the timeline back in chronological order, get rid of bot and spam accounts, and remove accounts/posts that don’t follow the community guidelines. now more than ever, there are many accounts that spread hate and misinformation! why was changing the layout a priority? fix it and bring likes and view counts back!
  • Annoying issue Jul 2, 2020

    By Moonstuh
    Instagram is a great app to use on your free time and to connect with other people. This is why I was really interested in using Instagram to try and help out my barber career. The one annoying issue I’m having is when it comes to trying to add an action button for booking. I have tried this with three different booking apps so far and with no luck. For example I am trying to add my square appointments app as a book option on my business account. The videos I have seen about how to do this, show that once you click on the app you use to schedule your clients, you need to enter in the URL that will link them to your booking page. I believe this is where the problem is. Instagram doesn’t give me an option to enter a URL. The order that Instagram sends me is ( connect website > please select business to connect > connect to Instagram > connection successful). Then when I refresh my page there is no action button. I have used three different booking apps in hopes that one of them would work and none of them do. I have the online booking option turned on within the app as well and it still doesn’t work. It’s extremely frustrating and to add onto it, I can’t find anywhere online to help me. There’s no way to contact Instagram, at least from what I have seen and it feels like it’s never going to work for me. This app could easily be a 5 star, but this one problem is really making it hard.
  • Used to be about connecting- now it’s just advertising Apr 6, 2021

    By Samdaughter
    I used to love Instagram as a way to keep in touch with my family and friends. Especially during this time of being apart. However, now with the unbelievable amount of ads it is nearly impossible to see what I want to see (my family and friends) and due to the new - “you’re all done” feature I constantly miss posts and here is why: If I open my feed and look at some posts from friends, I can see there are several I haven’t scrolled to look at yet, I then click over to open a message, when I look back at Instagram those posts are gone and I cannot see them again unless I can possibly remember who posted something and to individually look at each of their pages. I HATE that feature that is now in Instagram. To me the benefit of the posts is I can always just scroll down to review them. Now each post is pretty much a story, see it once and it’s gone forever and now I have ENDLESS ads. Once you have viewed your new posts you can’t see them again all you see are ads. Don’t get me wrong, I do like SOME ads, they are personalized and helpful. But I’d rather they show up only in my stories than on my feed. I’m probably going to delete Instagram as soon as I can find a different way to see friends and family’s posts and not miss any because of the inundation of ads that is here. Intagram used to be about connecting, now it is just advertising.
  • Oct 21, 2021

    By Phillip Bridges
    The app is still over all the same as it generally is, but I'm pretty annoyed about the new update where when I scroll through the main feed it jerks from one post to the next period I don't need the app to Auto snap to highlight most the photo, it's pretty annoying when it automatically jumps to the next photo when I barely scroll down to try and read the caption. Revert to the old scrolling that we're familiar with on every other web page and platform, don't try and change the scrolling.
  • Oct 21, 2021

    By Aled Burns
    Good app, but the new update is infuriating. I want to watch videos without having to go into a window. I miss just tapping the unmute button and watching it. Now when you unmute it, it takes you into reels. It slows down and breaks up the whole experience. Change it back, the update is bad.
  • Oct 22, 2021

    By Angelus Caligo
    With numerous bugs introduced in the last updates, the enjoyability and usability of the app has taken a nose dive; dark theme randomly switched off, videos can no longer be tapped to turn on/off sound and always open miniplayer instead, the app randomly turns on the camera for unknown reasons, the app stops working through 4G at random intervals with no way to get it working again without connecting to WiFi first, media sent to you by friends always jumps to the end of the queue when returning
  • Regarding notifications Oct 10, 2020

    By Slytherin Lennon
    I never bothered to leave any reviews because I did not really have any issues with the app until now. Please REMOVE the annoying notifications of “people you may know”. I find notifications about people I may know extremely annoying and unnecessary. I don’t care about people I may know. I didn’t mind seeing the suggested people on the app but now I’m getting actual notifications about this and it’s really annoying. It’s always people I don’t know at all and there is no way to turn off these stupid notifications. I hate them, please remove these awful notifications or at least give us the option to turn them off because when I went to check to see if I can turn off this specific notification, there was no option to do so. The only notifications I’m interested in are notifications of likes and comments on my posts and when my friends send me direct messages and friend requests. Any other notifications I’m not interested in, but the other notifications at least have an option to turn them off. But these people you may know notifications are just annoying, useless and I have no option to turn them off. Please give us that option to turn these notifications off as I DO NOT want them! I’ll raise the number of stars once you provide the option to get rid of that annoying notification of people I may know.
  • Instagram discriminated against who can post what in the comments. Jan 20, 2018

    By Poor people love Jesus
    I was just on an NFL post about the Jaguars defensive stats having a plain old argument that even though the Steele’s lost that doesn’t make the Jags a better team... that has nothing to do with my problem. The problem is I typed a response to a commenter during the argument of which I was blocked from posting saying that Instagram keeps certain “guidelines” for the community... some generic message I’d expect if i was trying to say something racist or sexist. But no. It was a simple argument about football that I was blocked from expressing my opinion on because it didn’t follow “guidelines”. The comment had no vulgar language and presented my argument in such a way that there was no degrading or demeaning connotation toward the would be recipient. TAKE NOTE: This comment was made on an NFL post and I was blocked from posting my opinion AGAINST the team the post was promoting. This is not a singular or first occurrence as I’ve had this problem before with Instagram blocking me from posting comments that oppose the view(s) expresses within the correlating post. I quite frankly find this ridiculous amongst the sea of comments I read through on posts from news publications such as Fox. As long as you don’t disagree with the post you can same just about anything that isn’t immediately racist or sexist... but I can’t argue about football. Fix this.
  • You are losing long time users Dec 3, 2020

    By ciboneyolmsted
    Ive been on instagram since it came out okay, I’ve been through all of the updates. I can deal with changes to layout, and bugs. What i can’t deal with is feeling like i am being thrown into what feels like a money making business. I understand you want to make money, but instagram originally was a platform to share photos and videos that’s it. I like to think of it as my digital journal, but now it feels like a task to even navigate and find posts that I genuinely want to see. Consider that maybe not everyone wants to be invaded with things to buy even if it is targeted to us, it is unecessary because if we truly need a product we know exactly where to get it without the need of Instagram invading our experience. Instead of cultivating posts you think I would like, leave it up to me the human to make those decisions. I like to think for myself. And what’s up with changing the chronological order of posts? What sense does it make to cycle in and out older posts from users. It is not useful, people like to feel in control. Instagram used to be a cool platform to literally EXPRESS and only that! You try too hard to fit in Instagram, stay original that was your best quality. Make changes and listen to your users, were the ones that keep you alive. We’ve got tired of apps before, don’t be the next one.
  • Great, but turned out horrible! 😯😡 Jul 2, 2019

    I installed Instagram because the app said you needed to be 12. I had it for a few months and eventually my posts totaled to about 80. I had taken pictures of holidays, trips, vacations, my family, and my dog. For a while, everything was fine and I loved the app, but then I made another slime account. I made this account and started using both of them. After a few days, I was asked to put in my age for some reason on my first account. The one with all my memories. I put it in and the age said I was 12. I then had to try to put in my age a few more times, but I put the same age in. I then was forced off of my first account. I clicked the button to save my pictures, but it didn’t work. I was so confused because the app said I needed to be 12, but I got an email saying I had to be thirteen. The app said YOU NEED TO BE 12 NOT 13!!! I was so mad and upset. All of my memories were gone and I couldn’t recover my photos. This needs to be fixed and I want my photos back. Another problem with the app is that you can’t have more than 1 account with one email. I had to start using my family’s email with their permission so I could have 2 accounts. I don’t understand why you can’t have 2 accounts on one email. If o want 10 accounts, I will need 10 emails. That absurd. Can I pox’s have an explanation on this.

    I haven't been a fan of Instagram on the pixel for awhile, but this new update made me write this review. Still unable to add multiple clips together so they show up as 1 clip, there are constant resolution issues (4k or 1080p clips that look like 480p- even with solid connection), choosing cover for clip is worst now, trimming clips is problematic (upload a 10 second clip, cut it down to 5, still uploads 10 sec clip). Overall, frustration is mainly with uploading and editing.

    Very frustrating. Reels crash constantly when I'm trying to put one together, can't write captions because of some sort of glitch. I posted a reel a month ago and just saw a few days ago the caption and hashtags have all disappeared. Can't share posts to my story. Everything was working fine up until a month ago and then it all went downhill

    Oct 20, 2021 update seems to not play videos if the sound is muted. Once you un-mute the video plays, but if you mute, it stops. Not sure if this is an Android issue but it didn't use to do this. Not everyone can listen to the sound when viewing videos depending on circumstances. Fix this!!!

    Updat* October 2021* it still crashes all the time. The hands-free mode stopped working. Msg stopped working. Filters don't work now. I uninstalled + reinstalled. Not fixed. app crashes ALL the time. And I just updated the app thinking itd fix this... wrong. . IG is now claiming female breasts are "genitals" so if you are covering your own breasts with your hands, they are claiming that's touching your genitals. The only reason I use IG is because it's the only option.

    Instagram has more potential than it has now. But a few issues are what keeping them from pulling out of from the others. First is the amount of bots, fake, and duplicate accounts that are on IG. Myself and some others (possibly) use IG as a place for photography, businesses, reaching a broader community to share the similar likes, or just for fun. With those few listed accounts, it limits who can see your posts and your account. I can see/understand if someone has a business and personal account. But to have 3+ accounts that are the exactly the same and are troll pages then why keep them up? Also there are times especially now (not sure if it’s happening to some people or not) is accounts and people who are clearly going against the TOS and guidelines with their posts and accounts. No matter if it’s drugs, tobacco, alcohol, nudity or sexual images. Some are showing up in popular feed (whatever it’s called) and some though scrolling through posts. Like earlier yesterday/today I tried reporting dozens of posts and accounts of completely naked women and a few of drugs and tobacco in use that showed up and all IG said was that “it doesn’t go against their guidelines”. How does all of this not go against the guidelines?? Also reported a account that supposedly had gotten “removed” on a couple different occasions but still on their as of yesterday with basically no consequences other than a couple pictures that were reported and removed. So I don’t know.

    This new "snap scrolling" feature makes the app almost unusable. It's so hard to read the contents of a large post without it snapping away from focus making it impossible to see things. It makes me feel nauseous trying to read stuff on the screen and it regularly glitches out to the point where I can't even reach the navigation bar on the top. Talk about fixing an issue no one had. Makes me not use the app anymore
  • Please Stop With The Horrible Updates Nov 14, 2020

    I've been using Instagram since 2013 and every update I've gotten since then has been disappointing. This newest update (version 166.1) is one of the most annoying and ugliest looking updates yet. First of all, why would I want to connect Facebook messenger to my Instagram account?? It's so unnecessary and of course the DM feature on Instagram is basically mutating into Facebook messenger with the message reactions and the different colored messages. Secondly, the shopping feature being on the bottom bar is the absolute worst. I've never shopped on Instagram and never will but I'm stuck with this completely useless button on my toolbar and I always accidentally hit it when I just want to take a peak at the explore page. Thirdly, the reels feature is absolutely awful (I know that was from a previous update) and I hate that I have the reels icon on my toolbar. The toolbar in general is getting way too confusing and too many things are getting added to it. The fact that I can't even post a photo from my toolbar is probably the most annoying feature. I love Instagram and every time I get an update I just say to myself "Well, I guess I'll give it a try" but all of these updates that have happened in the last 1-2 years have pushed me over the edge. Probably going to delete the app because these updates have been nothing but awful ever since Facebook took over. Hate what they've done with it. Stop trying to turn Instagram into Facebook.

    It seems like its new "features" seem even less intuitive each update. It redirects you to a NEW UI when you turn on a regular Video's Sound, I haven't been able to see every music track for two years, and their emphasis on Reels and Shopping really doesn't make sense. Like, realistically, HOW much money is Facebook making from Shopping that they're putting it as one of the front and center aspects.

    Worst! Can't see messages or receiving them super delayed. I had to keep on clearing cache and cookies or restart my phone in order to see/receive the messages. I had to uninstall and reinstall this app, but then it's seems an old version. I can't react to the messages or swipe reply like before! This app is getting bad. Fix it!
  • You messed up Insta Aug 15, 2021

    Everything was fine in the beginning. But now the app is FILLED with bugs. I go to open insta and all of a sudden I have the old layout. No more reels button, that’s where the post button is now. And I’ll go and open and close the app to see if it helps but it stays the same, but when I go to another account it still has all of the new features. Also, there is an audio bug to where if my phone closes for a sec and I reopen it, the sound of the post it closed on will play over everything. Even if I scroll and play a new video, it plays over it. If I go to close the app, it’ll STILL play even tho it’s not suppose to (and I have background interactions blocked on my phone) Also, the “you’ve reached the end of all recent posts, so here’s some from yo suggested feed!” Has got to stop. I follow those people for a reason. You don’t even SHOW every post the people I follow make. You only post the most recent ones, as in within about 7 hours, then take away all that and put your own stuff. I have a suggested feed and a following feed for a reason, there was no need to combine the two and I literally missed the fact that I’m an UNCLE because the post was made more than a day ago since I was last on, and didn’t find out until two weeks later when they made a post on their story about my nephew. You keep digging yourself in a hole insta, stop putting new things in and just fix what’s already here. There’s enough that’s broken, don’t put more
