    I deleted my FB and Instagram smartphone app earlier last month and I realize I become much more productive and mentally "peaceful" in daily life. If I want to catch up on what's going on with other people, I'll just access my account via my laptop through the browser or the Windows apps. I do miss reading memes but overall, deleting the smartphone FB and Instagram apps are one of the best decisions I've made in 2019. If I want to post something, I'll re-download the app and delete it afterwards.

    4/16/19 Update: Issues were never resolved. IG's support is a joke. 1/5/19: The camera never works. Whenever I try to use the Instagram camera, I always get a prompt to turn the camera on. However, it never works; no matter what I do. Update: I contacted android and instagram regarding the problems with the app & they were both useless; the app is still buggy. Now, there is also an issue with the app not refreshing properly & with videos continuously playing. This app needs some serious work.

  • by Carla Mae Vargas

    Everything won't load even though I have a strong internet connection. It always said that there is something wrong. I should've not updated this app. Sigh. Please fix this! Edit: even after a few updates, I still can't fetch my notifications. Yes, they appear on my notifs bar but on the app, it won't load. For the nth time, please fix!

  • Still some kinks to work out

    by MxPxL

    Instagram, what a fun app to connect you with the world! 😊 I’ve been a long time Instagram user, and have had my current account since 2013. I had never encountered any major errors that weren’t accounted for, and quickly fixed, until recently. When the “Instagram polls” were released, my account began slowing down, and getting extremely glitchy. 😕 I’ve never had the option to create an Instagram poll, post slider votes (not sure what those are called), or post the newly-released question stickers on my story. Mind you, I manually update this app each time a new update is released, leaving no room for error in automatic updates. To this day, after numerous emails and direct requests for help (through both the Instagram help page, the application, and personally emailing), my account still has no access to these accessories, limiting both the fun and functionality of my account. Before I deleted my second Instagram account permanently, I HAD access to these functions, meaning the issue was not with my application or phone specifically (I have also logged out of my account, and deleted the app to try and solve this problem). Not only have I never even HAD the option to choose these functions, but I have never gotten a response from Instagram that they are even TRYING to fix this issue. I love Instagram dearly, but there are definitely some minor issues that have been occurring, and growing to be major issues. 😬

  • by oh yeah yeah oh yeah yeah

    right. I've had enough of you idiots. you just deleted my second account with no warning and I cannot make a new one. meaning I cannot speak to any of my friends or know what's going on. I wrote a previous review about my first accounts deletion but you monkeys don't seem to care. I'm finished using your crappy app and I'm gonna move to Snapchat. I hope you guys are happy with your useless job of an app and I hope people start leaving your app like I did because you certainly deserve it.

  • Fix the feed

    by Cinnamon5000

    Well it's been awhile since Instagram changed the algorithm for their feed and it's annoyed me everyday since. So far I've had to block 48 national park Instagram because they cluttered my feed, I see random Asian people posing with food, I see random buildings in Russia, and the weirdest of all is peoples family photos are coming into my feed. This would all be great if I was a 95 year old women who doesn't even know what an app is. But I'm not I'm a 20 year old male who comes to Instagram to watch memes and news. No matter how many people you block, report, and say you don't want to see posts like this they will just keep sending you more and more of it. 48 national parks!!! Do you understand how annoying that is. More show up everyday. Apps like this and Snapchat don't seem to care what the people using the app have to say so it seems there's room for some young app designer to make billions. It wouldn't be hard to over take theses apps just do what they used to do and don't mess with it. Just because you think you need to be innovative doesn't mean everyone wants that, your updates do nothing but make your app more and more garbage. I would delete my account if I could even navigate to the page to do that, all I can find is deactivate account and no I don't want to turn it back on later if I change my mind I want it gone. In all this used to be my favorite app now I would rather stare at the sun then scroll through my feed of irrelevant nonsense.

  • ?!?!?!

    by Is this the best u can do?

    I LOVE THIS APP and go on it almost every day but recently my saved posts haven’t been showing up. I try going to my saved posts but it says there’s a problem and it gives me the option to refresh, however when I do refresh it, it doesn’t do anything. It just blinks white for a few seconds, then goes back to saying there’s a problem and once again giving me the option to refresh. This also happens when I go to some popular profiles that I happen to follow. I have no issues seeing their stories, however when I click to go to their main page (still on Instagram) it tells me there’s a problem and it gives me the option to refresh. I’ve tried clearing out my Instagram and shutting down and restarting my phone in an attempt to clear this problem up, but nothing has worked and it keeps doing the same thing over and over. This is a real problem for me. Half the reason I have Instagram is so I can view my saved videos/pictures (makeup tutorials, edits, fun fact pics, etc) and look at the profiles that I follow to see at their homepage and their content. I downloaded the recent Instagram update in hopes that you had realized this issue and cleared it up in the update but the update did NOTHING to fix this problem. PLEASE fix the problem so that I can continue to enjoy Instagram, otherwise there would LITERALLY be no point in me continuing to keep Instagram downloaded and taking up space on my phone. Thank you.

  • by Demi Rey

    The shadowban has been a pain in the ass and y'all doing it to ppl for no reason rendering our posts nonexistent under the hashtags we use for it. The algorithm newsfeed is still the worst ever. We should be able to have our posts shown in chronological order. Not what you think maybe interesting for us to want to see based on the high level of views and likes it has. Y'all really know how to screw up an app time and time again. Shouldn't get no stars at all.

  • by Harry Mac

    This app sucks! i mean how can you delete someones account without notifying! first of all that account (@danish_zehen) had 1.7 m followers, yeah i agree he is no more , but we are(fans)are emotionally connected to him still and will forever be! and this is not the first time you have done this, last time after so much of struggle we had got his account back and now all of sudden it dissapeared again,you can't play with the feelings of millions of people! we request you to reactivate his account

  • by CBT-Cosplay

    Problem with stories getting stuck on "posting" for days on end. You cant change accounts, you cant log out, you cant delete the post, you cant upload other things to your story. You cant even uninstall to try and reinstall to fix it. This is a big problem that needs to be fixed. update 4/19/19: well the app is back to having issues with posting stories. not it is also struggling with sending messages. please fix this.

  • Unusable?

    by Agoldgamer

    Alright, so to start my story, I wanted to get insta to talk to my girlfriend who lives further away and can’t talk to me as often as we’d like. As soon as I install the app, I quickly go and make an account, but as soon as I’m finishing up it says my account has been deactivated before I even sign up for one. When I try to report the problem it says Error and asks me to make sure I’m connected to the internet before trying again. I tried making an account 5 times and each time it kept saying the same thing. I know I have internet access to begin with so I should be able to report the problem that shouldn’t even be occurring. When I try and do sign in it says the accounts don’t exist or are disabled. I tried using my phone number and verifying it was mine, and still it didn’t work. Then I tried my email, and nothing. It doesn’t send any verification to my email which concerns me because I had to with my phone #. When I look for support it tells me that I have not agreed to terms of service, but it doesn’t give me a button to agree with the terms when I first installed it. I uninstall and reinstall to find nothing’s changed. Why does the process have to be difficult when it doesn’t have to be? When making my accounts I stopped because there isn’t a back button to fix an error I make either, so all you can do is hit next and hope you didn’t forget anything. I wish I could write a real review, but that’s hard when you can’t even use the app

  • by Celine Miskolczi

    I used to love it... now all i see are posts from famous accounts i follow, not my friends... also, because i dont use Instagram as often anymore they have unfollowed my account from some of my close friends because I'm not active on their pages... it's not supposed to be all about likes and ratings, it was originally supposed to be a way to keep in touch with people, but obviously that's changed if Instagram has unfollowed my account from friends and them from me.

  • by Leigh-Ann Van Der Linde

    Ever since the last update I can't like anything. I like one picture and go to another and then it says I'm blocked from liking pictures for 24 hours and that I'm abusing it. It's horrible I might very well decide to uninstall it permanently. It keeps happening and I have reported it 3 times and it was fixed once and it came back and is still not fixed after I reported it again more than a week ago.

  • Is instagram deleting people for doing nothing?

    by lit_lana

    Overall I love the app instagram, you can see funny videos and even gain followers on there, but here is the biggest problem on instagram, THEY ARE DELETING ACCOUNTS THAT DID NOTHING WRONG. Instagram needs to get out of their brain dead state and start checking accounts before deleting them because they are getting reported and accounts are being banned and disabled. This is especially unfair to the fan editors out there. There are hundreds of thousands of people who make edits of their favorite people on apps such as TikTok, Instagram, etc. These fans work hard on their edits, tag the people they edited, try to make their day by showing how much they love them just so instagram can delete the photos and videos because they assume that they are trying to be them??? Clearly if you read the caption you can clearly see that they are just simply showing how much they love that user. They are not trying to be like them they are just trying to support them. If they think people who show love to who they support then why don’t hate pages get banned, reported, or disabled? This isn’t the only people instagram has done this to because a nice dancer who did absolutely nothing wrong got disabled at 300k, the followers she worked hard on getting!!! Instagram needs to step up their game and stop doing all this bad stuff to these people who show their support or I’ll just have to be one of the many people who delete this app.

  • Deleted Mh Account For Absolutely No Reason

    by Confused Game Player

    Instagram deleted my account, moon_conspirator for absolutely no reason. I was a small personal page with less than 500 followers, I used my account to post selfies to my high school friends as I am a high schooler. I never posted anything controversial or mean, never targeted people in comment threads or made any negative, harassing comments towards anyone. Now when I go to sign up for a new account they refuse to let me, saying my number and email, and apparently my whole phone, are permanently banned. I’ve tried several different emails which is how I know my WHOLE PHONE is banned. Deleting people’s accounts without warning for a lack of offense isn’t a good business model. Instagram was how I communicated with a bunch of my friends and how I stayed up to date with a meme culture. I enjoyed watching content being created and I enjoyed looking at the photos people take. And because of some offense I never committed I can no longer do that. I emailed them almost a week ago, but expect no response. I will, unless my account it returned to me, likely not be using Instagram again, as I don’t think they are a worthy social media, they delete personal pages for zero offense and refuse to let actual sixteen year olds create new instagrams. Instagram already messed with chronological order, and I’ve no idea if they’ve fixed that since my account was deleted, and continues to delete pages that harm no one. They don’t deserve me business.

  • PLEASE TAKE AWAY THE ALGORITHM

    by Raw.Deen

    Truthfully, at this point I think that Instagram is being bought out by bigger companies/influencers to keep this algorithm in place. It doesn’t take more than 5 minutes of scrolling through Twitter or Facebook to see that THE PEOPLE WANT THEIR FEED IN CHRONOLOGICAL ORDER (At the very least, let me have the liberty of choice). This “update” truly is screwing people over. Truthfully it makes me not wanna use Instagram. I FOLLOW 700 PEOPLE. Why am I only seeing content from 8 of them? It’s ridiculous. I scroll down my feed to see other people I’m following and all I see is posts from THE SAME PEOPLE. I’m on Instagram EVERYDAY. I’ve seen DJ Akademiks posts for each one of the past 5 days, there is NO reason I should scroll past 4 pictures TODAY and STILL be seeing Akademiks from 5 days ago. It’s not right and it’s taking a lot away from the app. Instagram is a 5 star app, the stories were a great addition, the promotion feature isn’t bad, the discover feed is cool, BUT THIS ALGORITHM STUFF HAS TO STOP! & then you say that “oh it’s based on what you’d like to see” ....... well if all that’s on my feed for the past week is Akademiks, I guess I’m gonna watch a couple videos...... You follow someone and it immediately force feeds you their past 5 posts and that’s not cool. PLEASE MAKE INSTAGRAM CHRONOLOGICAL AGAIN! There will be more content for all to see and it will strengthen interactions among instagrammers. This is ridiculous.

  • Instagram discriminated against who can post what in the comments.

    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.

  • Too many bugs and problems lately!

    by Paulainhouston

    I love Instagram when it works, but lately there have been to many bugs and problems to make it enjoyable or useful! And there is seemingly no way to get help from you all! First of all, I am not happy with the change about not being able to have more than five accounts. It is bothersome to those of us who use this for work. Secondly, lately I am not able to do any posts from my account because for some reason it posts everything as another of my accounts! When I have my account pulled up and I post a photo, it posts on Instagram as one of my clients. I cannot like or comment on any photos in the feed on my personal account because it posts as that client and not me. I also cannot see any of the likes or comments on Photos I have previously made before this issue because when I click the heart symbol it gives me the feed from that other client and not from my own account! It is absolutely infuriating. I have reported the problem numerous times and have not gotten any feedback or any correction. I have updated the app several times, I have closed the App and open it again, I have turned off my phone, etc. I have even tried to send a tweet and heard nothing back. There has got to be a way to get some sort of customer service/support, especially when the issue is a basic function problem that is on your end!

  • I was ok with it at first but then this happened...

    by Suhfefadhkkfdgkkcex

    So I went to go on my art account right. I go to check my activity and it says “we’re having trouble accessing your activity” and I was like ok maybe I need to refresh it. I did and nothing changed. So then I say ok I’m just going to post another piece of artwork when I go to post it, it wouldn’t post. I also tried refreshing it. It didn’t post. Eventually I was like ok maybe it’s my email. I went to go confirm my email and bam! Could not confirm my email I retried over and over again and nothing changed. I even tried turning my phone off and back on again even though I just got this iPhone 8 in December! When I tried it again after restarting my phone, it still didn’t work. So eventually I was like ok you know what, let me just log out and log back in. I did that and what do you know, I COULDN'T GET BACK IN MY ACCOUNT AT ALL! It’s so hard trying to promote an account and get more people to follow along with your art and I had been building that account for over a year and a few months...all my hard work and dedication down the drain. And to put the topping on the cake, my personal account had also started messing up so eventually I just said you know what maybe I don’t need this app because clearly if I did they would fix things like this and prevent them from happening. So I might just not even try to have another account. I really don’t want to start all the way over again...

  • “Instagram needs a customer service number” SECURITY & SAFTEY OF PERSONAL LIVES !

    by _Lil JAJA_

    Instagram has been a great app ever since I was around 10 to 11 years old I am now 17 about to be 18. I have had Instagram since 2013. However, Instagram seems as if it’s easy to hack into. My accounts have been hacked numerous times and I have tried anything/everything to try to fix this problem. I lost everything within my Instagram such as photos, saved videos, Instagram stories, my followers, my business, my followers, anything that’s within the app it’s self I have lost and I have put a lot of work into it since I was just a kid. Ever since I was kid I’ve had a dream and Instagram was my way of reaching out to the world/community especially around so I could share that dream with them (everyone has a dream). That dream feels slowed down and a bit ruined and it something I take personal to the heart with much care. I just wish whoever was doing this would stop. Instagram needs to establish a customer service app or addition to the company/service because this has not only happened to me but many others. Every time I log in my “IG” account get deleted. Please help me! If anyone supports this please help me out and tell me how to end this headache. It’s very nerve wracking knowing things like this happens to people’s account around the world. Instagram needs to be more secure! 😪 Sincerely Jonathan

  • I cannot recommend this app

    by Gooey penguin30053

    Instagram is a terrible social media platform with a horrible community with horrible bugs and only makes itself worse. I cannot recommend this app to anyone. I would delete this app in a heartbeat if I didn't talk to so many people on this app. The app tries reinventing itself and only makes itself worse by doing so. The app chooses the remake things that work perfectly on the app and make it over complicated instead of fixing actual infuriating bugs in the app. If you leave the app halfway through a text, the part of the text will show up in the chat every time you open up that conversation for a day or two until it stops for no reason at all. The app also chooses to implement other features that don't need to be added like changes to the profile page and making it more likely to mis-tap and hit a story button when trying to go back from messages than before. It chooses to implement these kinds of features instead of ones I, personally would really like like a feature to read all story's or better privacy. It also infuriates me that they have not chosen to make and iPad app yet. They know they don't need to make this app better because many people have no choice but to use it, like me. Do not get this app and save yourself your own time and brain power trying to understand what they were thinking doing some of the things they do with this app.

  • Honestly this is getting annoying

    by Rae Knight

    You guys need to start listening to your users. Everything on here is just so messed up, the whole algorithm thing is annoying, and the feed/comments should be in chronological order. I don’t want to see someone’s post from two weeks ago I want to see the posts that were posted an hour or two ago. Also it isn’t fair that only certain story stickers are available to everyone. Yes I get that when you release things to the public it take time for everyone to get it so that’s understandable but when only some stickers are released to certain people that’s when it becomes unfair. I want to be able to add links to my stories but I can’t because it’s not released to everyone or not everyone has gotten the update yet. Also some lgbtq+ post have been taken down and honestly that’s just not right what is so wrong with lgbtq+ is it effecting anyone personally? No, no it’s not. Also being a depression help account on instagram I find it really rude that you take down posts that talk about depression/anxiety/self harm, then give people lousy websites that that so called ‘help people’ with that stuff. Just leave the posts up so someone can hopefully find the post and give/get the person that posted it needed help that will actually help them. Instagram please just start listening to your users or Instagram is just going to become as dead as Facebook.

  • Just gets worse and worse

    by televisioneheaven

    I’ve been using Instagram since 2011 and these past couple years and months the changes are making it so horrible I don’t even want to use it anymore. Can’t see who viewed past stories, EVERYONE WANTS CHRONOLOGICAL ORDER BACK, randomly follows and unfollows accounts without permission, some people who I follow I never ever see their posts, they censor/delete so much art and posts that don’t violate the guidelines, yet they allow accounts and posts harassing and bullying others to stay up after they’re reported, now they’re pushing sponsoring posts so much that if you don’t pay $$$$ barely anyone following you sees it, because of them handing out “credit” to everyone every 2-3 posts on my feed is a sponsored post from someone I AM not following and doesn’t post anything relevant to what I’m interested in or frequently like, every 4-5 posts there’s an ad, ITS SPAM!!!!!! CONSTANTLY!!! in between stories there’s tons of ads, and they’re STILL making it so their users have to pay for their audience to even see their posts, asking us for more money as if they’re not making enough off many many ads. It’s exhausting, I’m so sick of thing I don’t care about being shoved in my face when I’m trying to keep up with artists, businesses & people I love. I can’t wait for a better app to come out because once it does ima delete this forever, maybe even before then. I’ve had it.

  • instagram editors

    by editingaverg

    i’m sure instagram knows by now that a lot of people use their platform to share edits. there’s lots of editing accounts on instagram (i have 3). but as editors, we have lots of problems with your app. i’ll start with the biggest one, the percentage thing. where it says “this post is doing 80% better than your other posts.” since editors have gotten the instagram update, our views/likes have gone wayyyy down. and we believe it’s something to do with the rule that only a small percentage of our followers can see our posts. that is just so unfair. we spend hours/days at a time working on edits. they’re not easy to make. but we do it because we love to edit & we want to make our followers happy. editors work their butts off and deserve more than 5% or 7% of their followers to see them. problem 2. instagram quality. when we export our edits they’re in good quality. but when we post them the quality just goes down? that’s a huge letdown when you spend hours on an edit, just to post it and it has bad quality. problem 3. only 5 accounts? if anything there should be unlimited accounts. other editors & i probably want to create more than 5 accounts, because we like to edit more than 5 people! instagram, your app used to be a very good platform for editors, but you honestly need to fix your stuff. -L

  • Some issues

    by Imsteved

    While I enjoy this app, I've been using it for 3 years, there are some recent issues that have been bothering me. All the updates have just been going downhill since the chronological order of your feed was removed. My feed is a mess of the same people over and over again with posts from many days ago because instagram thinks I want to see that stuff above everything else. The "solution" was to help you stay up to date with the posts you miss, but now I am missing more posts in my feed than before because of this system. I recommend making it an option in settings to turn on chronological order of your feed, it would make things so much easier. Another issue I have is that I recently noticed that the accounts you follow are no longer in chronological order either? There seems to be no organized way they are put in order, it's just like it was randomly thrown in there like that. This proves to be very difficult for me to find accounts I have recently followed as they no longer show up at the top of my followed box. I am following over 1,600 accounts so I have a very hard time remembering the name of an account I just followed. I just wanted to find one account and now it's lost in the many accounts I follow. Please make these changes, it would make the app so much easier to use.

  • Instagram is a bully

    by MissV_3

    They will delete your account without any warning and it doesn’t matter if your content is good or bad. They don’t care how their users feel about the new algorithm updates. Don’t bother trying to make a complaint, no one will respond. Your content gets restricted or shadow banned depending on what you post or what hashtags you use. If you’re a conservative, don’t bother using this bias platform to voice your opinions, they will shut you down. You’ll see the same 20 people on your timeline regardless of how many 1000s you follow. Advertising is everywhere and can’t be avoided! Don’t post often? Consider your account deleted for not using it. The new algorithm makes you interact more with followers so that your content is seen but yet my likes continue to drop and more of my longtime followers have unfollowed me. When I message them to ask why they all said they didn’t unfollow me and thought I did. So not only does Instagram restrict accounts they don’t like or consider popular but will also remove some of your most active followers to keep your content from being seen. They act as if they are too good to be true but are really setting themselves up to less than MySpace in a few years. I really suggest switching to Vero The True Social App! Been there a few months and I love it. Plus, they aren’t as strict as Instagram and you see content from all the people you follow.

  • It’s not worth bothering anymore

    by Just Advice

    I’ve had Instagram for over three years, and as time has moved on, the app got worse, I run an account that used to get over 100,000 views per post, but now that they changed the algorithms to benefit only advertisers (a very sneaky and Miley hungry move, like Facebook does) my posts will rarely get more than 5,000 views. Hundreds of other accounts and I work to make our posts show up on the explore page and build a community, but now all you can find on the explored page are irrelevant posts and ads. Also, I’m pretty sure everyone on Instagram had been begging for a chronological feed as long as Instagram has existed. Well we got an update to our feeds, but definitely not what we were hoping for. The December 27th update where you swipe sideways like a story to see your feed may have just ruined Instagram. It is so inconvenient to access the explore page, switch accounts, go to your profile, and post on your story. You can’t tap or swipe to switch stories without accidentally pulling up random stats you really don’t need to see, and it’s very difficult to do one handed, which is one of the things that made Instagram so easy and accessible. I know this update is taking me off Instagram, and I’m sure I’m not the only one leaving for good. Please Instagram, actually listen to your users when making an update and don’t pretend this is what we want.

  • good, but 3 things...

    by apparently a drake fan

    this app is amazing. i truly think it is the best social media, however, 3 big things have really bothered me recently to the point where i feel the need to write this review. 1) the algorithm for my feed is really messed up. it is to the point where i don’t even see my close friends posts anymore because i’m only seeing big clothing brands or celebrities. however, i only follow 5 or 6 of accounts of this type and yet they’re all over my feed. i once took a screen recording of when i had 14 drake posts at the top of my feed IN A ROW some of them dating back to 4 weeks prior. 2) instagram keeps sending me recommendations for following hashtags and other big accounts, like minecraft and reese’s????? for no reason???? i don’t even follow any gaming accounts or anything. also who on earth would willingly follow a hashtag?? to me that is just not a realistic idea but maybe i’m wrong. also, my explore page is full of spam accounts just trying to get likes and it’s very annoying. 3) instagram has stolen so many concepts from snapchat and i’m not here for it. stories were the big one because they didn’t even bother changing the name or shape of the concept. i highly recommend snapchat btw for intuitive and innovative social media use. anyway, i don’t think big brands like instagram should be able to get away with stuff like that without people saying things so here i am.

  • Broken

    by auoso y ucucuuchalwfou

    Instagram has been completely messed up for me the past few days. The biggest problem is, every time I click on a notification (from within the app or from a push notification) it only opens the comment section on that post, not the actual post. So I will click on the notification, it shows me a bunch of comments, but there’s no way to see the post itself; I’ll forget what the notification is and never end up seeing the post. Even clicking on my own post from notifications if someone likes it does the same thing. Another thing is I keep getting notifications from the same post, sometimes hours later. Also, another horrible problem is if somebody sends me a post from a private account that I don’t follow, and then I start following that account, even after I get approved it still says in the dms “this is a private account follow them to see this message” so I don’t know what post was sent to me. Gets super annoying. Lastly, this one isn’t a huge deal but it still a weird glitch: sometimes when I open a video somebody sent in dms (from camera roll, not a post) the sound from that will keep playing on Instagram. Leaving the app and coming back doesn’t stop it, the only thing that stops it is closing the app in multitasking. Hope you guys are working on these issues, thanks

  • HORRIBLE, FORTNITE IS TAKING OVER

    by Pie103

    So I downloaded Instagram hoping for a nice place to share pictures of my food and selfies with my loved ones. HOWEVER I was in for a rude awakening, you see when I downloaded it everything was fine and dandy. That was until I got my first ad. Now you may be wondering what this has to do with fortnite well my first happened to be a fortnite ad. I reported it and blocked the account, yet I still received ads about fortnite. I hate fortnite with a burning passion and will do anything in my power to stop them from ruining our children’s minds. All they do is sit inside playing fortnite and I have had it up to here. I urge you all to take action. Block fortnite report every ad you get and if you wish To go to the extreme like I did simply delete Instagram and remove yourself from its TOXIC fortnite environment. Now the reason I’m rating Instagram 1 star and not fortnite is because I have reported (the account) multiple times blocked them and yet still receive ads about them. Instagram I urge you to listen to my complaints and get rid of fortnites Instagram. You have not listened to anything I have said or the rest of the users have said about this virus, once you change your policies and get rid of fortnites Instagram account and terminated all relationships with them I will consider re-installing your app. But for now I cannot be associated with such a toxic environment. Thank you very much

  • Missing “see translation” button

    by Autumn Capurso

    I can’t translate posts in a different language after this new update... which is annoying because how can I understand posts of friends in different countries who don’t speak the same language as me? I cant copy and paste the caption into google translate so there’s no way to understand what they’re saying. Please fix this, thanks. Also, literally everyone wants you to switch back to chronological posts. Why don’t you listen to your users? The algorithms are so dumb, I’ve stopped seeing posts for some of my favorite accounts lately just because the algorithm doesn’t think I’ll like them. I’ll go find the account with posts that don’t show up in my feed and purposefully like and comment on all of their recent pictures, but still some posts from my favorite accounts don’t ever show up in my feed even if they post ALL the time. If I want to make sure I don’t miss certain posts then I turn on post notifications. But this algorithm is hella annoying and I miss when Instagram had the chronological feed. I know most everyone agrees with me, I mean cmon Instagram, it’s painfully obvious. At some point some other social media app is going to come along and you’ll be as irrelevant as Facebook. So why not try to please your users as best as you can instead of more and more people taking a break from insta??? Just asking the real questions here

  • I am mad

    by annabelle keasling

    So one day I was peacefully scrolling through Instagram and I thought I should watch stories , so I go up to the top and the stories are all gone . So I thought “ oh it’s probably just a one time thing , I will just close the app and try again “ so I got back on and what do you know the stupid stories still aren’t there . Then I decided to look it up on google and apparently it is a very common problem and there is no known fix for it , so I decided maybe I should just delete the app and re-install it . So I deleted it and went on the App Store and searched up Instagram and it was gone , so I changed the filter to “iPhone only ” STILL didn’t show up . So at this point I was very upset , and I couldn’t think of what to do then finally it hit me , I should look on my purchased app history . So I looked up “ Instagram ” And what do I get in response “ NO RESULTS this is not an app you have ” and I was just thinking really because if I recall I had it less than a minute ago . So I just searched up Instagram again and I saw this app that said “where your kids are hanging out” so I pressed on that and I scrolled down and it said suggested apps “Instagram” and “Snapchat ” , so I am very confused why Instagram decided to take away all of the stories from me , and then try to hide the app or something ???? So I am just very confused and they definitely need to figure something out and FAST!!!

  • The New Algorithm is Worse

    by leahg726

    I own a photography business and have a business Instagram account which I love as it shows insights and engagement. This tool has helped me tailor and grow my following to close to 2,000 people. However, I had noticed a dramatic reduction in the amount of “likes” and “engagement” on my posts. Before the new update, I would receive around 300 likes with 1,500 people seeing my post and now I’m lucky to get 150 “likes” and 600 people seeing my posts. This is frustrating as it’s completely stunted my growth as a business and I’m helpless to do anything about it, even when I post at peak times. One of my peers had mentioned to me that the app now judges the percentage of followers that “like” your post within the first 10 minutes of you posting to determine how many of your followers will be shown your post. This has hurt me a lot as my posts now don’t get enough engagement to make it on discover pages or show up at the “top” of locations when I tag them. Not everyone uses Instagram everyday and if your following isn’t composed of hyperactive users, your posts will get completely pushed aside and buried. Please fix your algorithm so I can continue to grow my business and portfolio. I love Instagram and this app has been a huge benefit to reaching more consumers, please change it back, thank you.

  • PLEASE BRING BACK DIRECT MESSAGE DRAFTS & NON-ALGORITHM LAYOUT

    by Ellismae

    I will start this review like everyone else... I have used Instagram for years.... I manage about 4 accounts and absolutely have loved it BLAH BLAH BLAH.... it has been great and I do love it app, but the new updates recently have made it impossible for me to work from and enjoy the app personally. DIRECT MESSAGE DRAFTS. I used this to edit my future posts in my drafts and see how they would look, then send them to myself or my friends for some external cleaning up or whatever. Now I can't save my drafts for future use/edit.... this is very annoying since now I can't save my edited future photos on my camera roll and have lost a few when drafts glitch... second, ALGORITHM.... everyone complains about this and I am one for the masses. We don't want you to remove it entirely because we are sure you spent a lot of time and money writing that program and stuff... but at least allow us to turn it off in settings. I am missing important posts from friends and family as well as loosing business because I don't keep up with who I need to. The algorithm confuses me and looses content for me, making instagram no longer enjoyable to browse because I feel like I'm drowning in content I don't want to see or have seen over and over again.... PLEASE LISTEN TO A MAJORITY OF YOUR USERS AND MAKE SOME CHANGES SOON!

  • Sketchy!

    by 35madscientist

    I am getting tired of the ignorant comments and ridiculous things I see on social media, but I don’t know why there’s a (sort of) way to report people when nothing ever gets done about the things that supposedly violate your policies. I just block people who harass or send me spam. So I hadn’t been on IG for a week or so, because I was sick. But today, I got a message from a friend and we “talked” for a bit, then I answered someone who asked me about following their account (has to do with migraines). I hadn’t tried to follow anyone else, but when I tried to like something on this person’s account, it wouldn’t let me. It didn’t say I was blocked by this person, but something else vague about how due to my use of this feature (liking a post!) that I m temporarily blocked from using it. It just said “feature”. I can message ppl, follow them, comment on their posts, and even like the posts w/the “like” feature that lets you heart a comment. So It said “until (date that is a day away)”. WHAT?! And I haven’t been on there to do or say anything! I could choose to “tell them” or hit “ok”—tell them it was a mistake or something like that. I don’t know since it didn’t allow me to DO ANYTHING! I have never seen this before. I don’t know what it is, but I hope you all find something to do with your time that involves going after people who are really causing some kind of problem. Ugh!

  • New horizontal layout is awful and crashes my iPad Pro 2018

    by Quuaaack

    First of all...it’s 2018 and you still don’t have a native iPad app, which is frankly awful but now you’ve replaced the most natural gesture of scrolling with a horizontal tap which seems quicker but makes it much harder to scroll back up to thinks you’ve already passed and much harder to keep a sense of chronology (which you also removed) Honestly the changes you’ve been making make me not want to use the app anymore, some new features are nice but some are a complete failure. Horizontal scrolling works fine for stories but making stories and posts feel like the same thing is dumb and you still have to scroll vertically when you go to someone’s grid so why make the app feel even more disjointed? Now you essentially have four different interfaces, one for ig tv, one for user pages and discover, another for stories and a slightly different one now for the home and they all function differently. It honestly feels like you haven’t tested this because across the app people are complaining and also, for users who make posts with multiple images, it’s a nightmare because you already use horizontal scrolling for that but now you have to be careful not to tap the wrong part or you’ll scroll past the post or be stuck on the post when you intended to do something else. This update is a total mess.

  • Was this the plan?

    by DadDudeTrent

    If you’d like a social media application that allows you to miss your friends’ most recent updates, as well as almost instigate arguments with actual six year olds who spam horribly boring memes, you’ll love the current IG scene. Now, since Facebook (parent company of Instagram) doesn’t take in enough dough, every three to four posts you excitedly view, will be an advertisement. Your sound is off? No worries. If you only muted the ringer with the switch in your phone, any videos now auto play. That means if you open an image on the explore page, and a video is below it, while you’re viewing the picture, all that glorious sound you asked for by not scrolling down will play at whatever volume you happened to leave your phone on. You know, from the time you were actually watching a video. I can’t say IG is terrible...but it’s a great example to how corporate greed for spammy adverts and not listening to users looks. As well as how a community of people can make a website/software feel. A big mass of opinions and “news” posts that don’t require sources. I came to post pictures with filters before I had a concept of editing, stayed for the dank memes, leaving because people in mass, ruin everything. In short, I didn’t have IG on my phone for about five months as a test. Sincerely, haven’t even been close to as happy since downloading it again.

  • Unfair!

    by Aingealina

    Please stop deleting fan pages. It’s unacceptable. You are deleting pages with followers with over 1k to 15k how does that make sense?! Why aren’t you deleting accounts that people don’t even use that are just sitting around not accounts that are used everyday and are posting and liking and sharing?! It makes no sense why you would shut down a page that worked so hard to gain the following it did. It’s not like we are impersonating the people we make accounts about we post edits and make video edits of them you can clearly see when you look at the posts and not just the profile pictures and bios. It takes time out of these peoples days to make these edits and they really care about them you can’t just act like you don’t care about your audience using your app and if you don’t that’s bull. I can tell that you are clearly using some sort of computer system to do this because it’s all sorts of messed up and I hope it gets fixed because I love Instagram and I have three accounts that I use everyday. Two of which are personal but the other one is a fan account that I have built up a following on and I have no clue what I would do if I lost it. I would probably never make another fan account or even personally delete my other accounts because I would’ve so upset. Please let people have the accounts back this is not fair at all!

  • Why mess with it?

    by Wheels McGee

    There are a few annoying changes that have been made recently in the app that I feel need to be voiced. First of all, the non chronological order that propagates our feed is frustrating to say the least. It feels clunky and I feel like I don’t get to see all the posts from users that I follow. I’m not even sure what the order of the feed represents. Are they popular posts? Top posts? At least give us the option to choose wether we want our feeds in chronological order or (omakase style). Another annoying change is with regards to the browse interface. You all know what I’m talking about. When you click a post to see the details you no longer can scroll up or down to see the other posts in the order of the thumbnails. Now it’s all similar posts. Whose idea was that? Oh and for some reason if you click on pic thumbnail that’s next to a larger video thumbnail, it only opens the video and not the post you actually are trying to see. The last thing that I can think of is when I’m on a user’s IG and I’m looking through their posts (thumbnails) when I click on one to see the details why can’t I scroll up or down to view the details of their previous or next post? I have to go back to thumbnails and then click the next. Ugh. Ok. I’m done. That felt good to get off my chest.

  • New algorithm is killing this app

    by gpapazian

    I've read a few other reviews and many of the stories also seem to apply to me. I've been using Instagram for years and I loved how it was a relevant social media platform that's not completely bogged down by ads and politics. I loved being able to see what my friends and family are up to in a visual medium, which used to be the entire point of Instagram. Then, they started featuring more and more ads and the more they pushed with the ads, the less I would visit the app. However, around this time they also changed the feed algorithm, no longer sorting it by the most recent post, so whenever I go on it, my entire feed is at least 10 days old. I no longer enjoy scrolling through my Instagram feed, because instead of being able to immediately interact with the photos, I need to check the date on each one first. Scrolling through the feed has become a chore and as a result, I only visit the app about once a month now. I've debated deleting my account multiple times and if they do not revert back to the old algorithm soon, I probably will because I can't justify keeping an app on my phone that I don't use it enjoy. At the very least, I can understand some ads here and there because companies need revenue, but I implore Instagram to please listen to millions of their users and sort feeds by recency again.

  • Please read and consider our feedback!

    by RissaRocks12345678

    Hey instagram. I have something to say. Me and a lot of my friends and family members now have the new Instagram update. We have many concerns and things to say about it just please read this and hear our side and opinions of this dramatic change. We realized that the update no longer allows us users to scroll to look through our feed we now have to swipe. In all of our opinions, this is a terrible way of viewing people’s posts. You guys are making it like snapchat & Instagram stories. Less people would want to keep swiping. It is more confusing and a complicated thing to do. We would scroll down throughout the feed since Instagram first came out and it was never a problem so why change it? Nobody likes this new way of going through our feed. Scrolling makes things to much easier and it just overall makes the app a lot better. It just looks sloppy and many other things. We have a lot more to say but personally I think you should listen to the people’s feedback to this update and change it back to scrolling rather than swiping. Do what you want but remember that it’s the people who use the app that give you guys all the money you make and stuff. Remember that if you creators decide to not listen to all the people’s feedback and opinions then less people would use and or download the app.

  • Updates are slowly killing Instagram

    by TenaciousG3

    I used to really enjoy Instagram. It was replacing Facebook for me, since that has become more of a place for people to post annoying rants and inaccurate news. However, it seems that with every “update” the app gets worse, not better, for its users. The change in algorithm was annoying enough, especially for users who rely upon Instagram views for their business. But now this “improved” scrolling experience is anything but. It’s annoying. It makes it much harder to navigate and find the posts I really want to see. It forces me to individually click through every image instead of being able to quickly flick through my feed and stop on the posts I am most interested in. The argument that it is more like “stories” is false. In stories, I can still quickly pan through the stories on the top bar that I want to view and then tap on the one I want to see. Also, many of the regular posts have links or tags within the image, so when I try to quickly tap through them I keep jumping to links I don’t want to visit. In short, this new update is terrible and creates a more difficult and frustrating user experience. Fix what doesn’t work and stop messing around with what does work. I know I’ll be using Instagram much less now.

  • Good and Bad at the same time.

    by notkylee32

    There are a lot of bugs that are sticking around. On my old iPhone 6 I couldn’t get any flash to work. Now I have the iPhone 8 and I’m having flash trouble again. This time every back camera photo with flash is over exposed. Really discouraging when this is a photography social networking app. Another camera related problem I have is with photo-from-camera posts. I have evidence that your camera does not capture to its best ability and I’ve noticed the change the saturation and brightness between what I see in the live view of the photo vs. after I actually take it. (I’ve seen this through screenshotting the screen right before I took the photo, then taking the photo, then exiting camera and comparing the two.) Again disappointing for me. But your app has improved some over the years. I love the interactive sticker features on the stories. I also like how you moved the Saved Posts tab. It is my favorite Social Network app I have on my phone. Just miss the algorithm!! I’m missing so many posts in my timeline though! I follow only my high school friends (about 700) and I’m not sure if posting frequently has anything to do with it but some post more than others and I will see a post from 3 days ago as my top post and the next 4 posts are the same account!

  • Maintenance

    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.

  • Algorithm

    by ElizaCarto11022001n

    Instagram used to be such a great app where everyone can connect, post pictures, videos, be creative, express their feelings, find others just like them, etc. but lately Instagram has taken many wrong turns. It is quite obvious Instagram is blatantly copying Snapchat, and the feed is awful. Users constantly see posts from days before, posts they have already seen, seeing the same accounts over and over, and they never see new posts posted by those they follow. Therefore everyone’s engagement has dropped tremendously. Users aren’t seeing posts by those who they follow, instead our feed is flooded with useless ads, seeing the exact same post over and over, or seeing older content that we never saw until now. Algorithm that is used to determine what we see in our feed is absolutely ridiculous and idiotic. Almost every user demands for the algorithm to be changed. Companies and brands are suffering due to this. Action needs to be taken place quickly. Instagram has changed in a bad way, and we want the feed to return to chronological order. Listen to your users for once, and stop making updates that we are not please with. Stop ignoring your users and our demands. Aren’t you supposed to please your users? So far you are doing a terrible job at doing so.

  • Keeps locking me out

    by KayMich

    In the past week, this app has given me nothing but trouble. My phone is up to date, so I know that’s not the issue. I have deleted the app & re-installed it several times over. I have restarted my phone several times as well. The app will not allow me to log back in to my personal account, yet it works on web browser. I also tried downloading the app on my iPad & it works there, but no matter what I do, it just keeps giving me an error message here. At least it is still allowing me to log in to my business account. The other issue I have is that I recently opened a new account for my second business. Without any warning or explanation, Instagram disabled it. It was still a private account as I wanted to get my business going before getting the account going. It had never posted anything. It was only followed by my personal account & a couple of business associates. It had in no way, shape, or form EVER violated any terms of service. Yet they took it away & didn’t say why. And on top of that, upon trying to set up a new account, Instagram blocked me from doing so no matter what I changed the name to. This is highly unacceptable & I may take my accounts to a different platform. I’ve used Instagram since it was in its infancy, but if this is the kind of treatment & service I am going to get, I will walk away for good.

  • How about I decide what I want to see

    by massage_momma

    Years ago I switched over to Instagram from fb because my reason for using fb was to see pictures of my friends & family. Fb got way too bogged down with “stuff”. Loads of crap I didn’t want to wade through in order to see what my friends were up to or to see pictures of my nieces that live in another country. So, instagram felt like a more natural clutter free platform. But, you had to follow in fb’s steps and have the audacity to decide you or some algorithm know what I want to see in my feed. Stop. You don’t know what I want to see and quit trying to think you do. If I follow a person It’s because I have some interest in them. When I click on Instagram to have a gander I want my feed to 😱 actually include everyone I follow. And, god forbid, I’d like it in chronological order. For many reasons I want it in chronological order and I’d hope the powers that at fb/instagram HQ are smart enough to figure it out. Put in all the ads you want, you gotta pay the bills- I get it, but leave my feed alone. Let me see everyone I follow without having to go directly to their page/feed. And, do it in order! I get extremely irritated when I read an announcement about events, sales, or other happenings and it’s two-three days old and therefore out of date.

  • Why Instagram? Why?

    by I heart.......

    The option to see users who have viewed Highlights (locates on users profiles) has been removed. It now says “viewer lists aren’t available after 24 hours”. This is absolutely ridiculous! These “highlights” are a permanent part of the users profile and NOT just a “story” that goes into IG archives after 24 hours. With a profile public, I should have the right to see who is viewing my highlights at ANY TIME. This was such a great feature and now like everything else, Instagram has ripped it away without users consent or opinion. With the little control users actually have on Instagram nowadays, this was the one feature I truly appreciated. It gave me the ability me to see who was visiting my page with the option to follow, ignore or block. Now we’re back to the primitive age of Instagram where you can stalk and creep around unnoticed. The users already have relinquished their ability to control endless ads, are forced to have unorganized feeds, and are unable to view stories chronologically. Please start listening to your users. Without us, you’re nothing and maybe it’s time to remember that. Please bring back this feature. And furthermore, please stop needlessly changing features that are beneficial to your loyal users.

  • app won’t work on my iPhone but will on others

    by jvbgirls

    I have an iPhone 7 and I would like to use my instagram on my iPhone but the problem is that it won’t let me log in. I have deleted the app many many times too many to count and have restarted my phone and nothing will work. I have also emailed and called and even sent them questions asking why won’t my instagram app work on my iphone, and didn’t get a response back. It’s also very strange because I can log into my account and use my instagram on other people’s iPhones besides mine. I have also followed and read there community guide lines and privacy policy to see if I did anything wrong and I didn’t. When I try to log into the app with on my iPhone it says “sorry, there was a problem with your request.” I have tried making a new Instagram and I will get a small pop up message on my screen saying you have violated instagrams terms, community guide lines, and privacy policy. I’ll click on it and it’ll take me the the instagram he’ll center and it says that my account may have been disabled but the weird thing is, when I log into my account on other peoples iPhones it works and doesn’t say it’s disabled. So if the creator of this app would like to tell me how to fix this issue and let me use the app on my phone then please do. thank you

  • Trash update

    by samiramichelle

    I just want to start off by saying i have been a big fan of Instagram for as long as it has been out. Y’all were on point with the updates for a good minute but now they have become a hot booty mess! It all began when y’all changed the timeline from going in chronological order to just a random order of the pages you like most or look at the most. Idk exactly how to explain it but i hate it! I constantly miss out on things people have posted and they pop up on my feed and says posted 2 days ago like who tf wants to see that stuff now. And now we have an even bigger problem y’all done goofed and changed the timeline to tapping. Insta i just wanna talk for a second nie phone to phone... the stories ONLY, were made for tapping and the big hype about insta was scrolling. Shoot y’all already copied snap with the stories so the least y’all could do was stay consistent with the scrolling feed. Y’ALL HAD ONLY ONE JOB!!! I just wanna say all of your users hate this wack behind update including myself. Please do better or insta will be getting left in 2018 and it’s #Twitter2k19. Btw great way to end a year for yourself! Y’all sure know how to ruin stuff. Moral of this whole dang story just change everything back to normal including how the timeline works. Please and thanks. ~ sincerely a concerned insta user

  • I ignore your suggestions as you ignore mine

    by Rob_Halford_Rocks

    Ughhhhh facebook lite - scuse me - “Instagram” - I am hating you more by the day. Happily rid myself of the facebook albatross 8 years ago and enjoyed this app instead. Minimal political BS, no drama, easy to keep private and only share with selected people I actually consider “friends” and *gasp* their pictures showed up in the order in which they were uploaded! Yes I know - shocker - timeline actually meant something. Not only does this app prioritize what THEY ASSume I want to see most, but there is advertising fecal matter smeared all over the place with far more regularity than ever and for the love of all things sacred STOP “suggesting” people that I may like to follow based on who is currently on my follow list. Some of us have idiot in-laws we must follow for reasons of decorum and I certainly don’t want to constantly see their idiot “friends” as suggestions for me. (i’m sure that feeling is mutual). If I want to follow someone/something I will seek it out because I am a thinking individual and am quite capable of making these decisions without an algorithm to ASSist. Yea - teetering on deletion as this app continues to spiral down further into the cesspool that is social media. I wish I could shove your nose in your virtual carpet accident and say NO with the squirt bottle. Bad facebook puppy, next time you sleep outside.

  • Account Access Issue

    by Kobby O.

    I got a new phone and tried to log into my account and it said it was a suspicious login attempt and sent a security code email. I looked at the email and its send it to an account that does not exist. it’s sending the code to “@email.com”, instead of “@gmail.com”. I tried resetting my phone, uninstalling and reinstalling, and I’ve also tried waiting for about 24 hours or so. When I try to make another account with my “@gmail.com” account, it says it’s already in use by another account, but when i ask for a confirmation it goes to “@email.com”. I’ve also tried resetting my password and I even tried using all the options for a lost password, username, and email. I cannot create another account and I cannot get into the account I already have made. Please help me with this issue.

  • View post

    by Roebyext

    Please fix this! When you go to view a comment, you can no longer view the post!!!! When someone tags you in a picture you can only view the comment! It’s completely frustrating. Thumbnails are not big enough to view the post.

    Instagram is a good app overall but sometimes its glitches a lot and for me it doesn’t have the music sticker/ icon. While others have it? Why is that?

  • Hacked

    by Instagram is not safe

    My account was hacked after 12 years of being an avid user. Instagram did nothing to help me recover my account and ended up deleting it completely. My memories are gone and I had to completely start over with a new account. Very sad that there is no customer service, especially when these are people’s family memories they’re dealing with.

  • Chronological Post

    by YRTHEYALLGONE

    Will bump it up to 5 stars when you give users the OPPORTUNITY to have their posts in chronological order. Until then its garbage and I keep seeing the same stupid posts from days ago, even when people I follow post new content. It’s a complete joke.

  • I can’t share post on my stories

    by LauraBolivar

    Since they did the new version that I have I haven’t been able to share post from a public profile even from my own profile to the stories. Also, when I’m posting stories I can’t record for more than 15sec, I have to record one by one even if I use the hands free option it will stop on the 15 second and I have to do the next one by myself. I have the lasted version of Instagram and a IPhone X. So this is affecting my development and I try to contact them and never have a feedback.

    Okey so could you stop pushing people to transition to X models? You are constantly updating apps so that info bar (time, battery info) doesn't fit on the screen.
