Love the app but needs some fixing
I love the instagram app since I was a little girl and its fun and interesting a great way to get to meet people and get in touch with the people you don’t see in person very often. Now all though I love and respect instagram there is a couple things that needs some fixing. When we text someone on instagram it pops up in the notification of what the person said and if we were to delete that message it wouldn’t matter because all though you delete the message the other person would see it anyway because they got the notification. And not only that but lets say someone was on instagram and the other person text them but decided to delete it, it would say you deleted a message and it literally says what you said in the text and no offense but if you don’t believe me i know this because I know these two problems are real because it has happened to me a long time ago. Also another problem is when we want to record on instagram for our story or just in general we have to hold the button for the videoing to work and if we let go the video would end. This is very upsetting and annoying because when we try to make a video by ourselves we have to hold the button and there is barely anything we can do and I know this because it happens to me. Also I don’t understand why the videos have to be so short. please fix these problems
STOP TRYING TO FIX WHAT ISN’T BROKEN!
You really need to listen to your users before you end up losing every last one of them. I’ve been with this app since the beginning & I’ve never seen an app do a complete 360 the way Instagram has. Though that could be because Mark Zuckerberg couldn’t stand the competition and had to get his hands on Instagram before it overpowered Facebook. You think you’re doing a service by making all of these unnecessary changes that no one asked for, but all you’re creating is a disservice and an outrage amongst the people who’ve loved this app. First it was Instagram stories (which we’ve learned to get behind), then it was a modification of the algorithm to benefit advertisers (which everyone is annoyed by) now it’s this “new way to scroll” ?!? There was nothing wrong with the way we’ve scrolled through the app before! All you’ve done is just create a wave of confusion and it’s going to lead to even more negative reviews. You want to be productive and innovative? How about adding features people actually want: Like social links directly on your Instagram page (do not make them big and tacky. Take a pointer from Wordpress and Blogger and make the links simple and elegant). You can even make a blog website for Instagram users that will allow them to play music on those blogs. Anything creative and actually helpful and useful instead of all of these over-done changes that no one wants! Get it together Zuckerberg. GET. IT. TOGETHER.
for the past few days, whenever I try to share pictures with direct messages, some photos appear blank. help!
Needs some work
I’ve had Instagram for years now and it’s one of my ways to engage with my friends and know what they’re up to. I like to know when they feel sad so I can cheer them up and when they feel happy so I can smile knowing they’re doing good. But ever since the new algorithm, its caught me in many situations in where I’ve lost all contact with my friends because I don’t know when they post and the other account I follow most recent posts. Yeah, of course I can turn on post notifications but why would I do that when I’ve already followed them and I should see all there posts on my feed. Why would you do that? Why would you take the perfectly fine chronological algorithm and then throw everything out the window? If it doesn’t need fixing then don’t fix it. I don’t need Instagram to tell ME what I MIGHT BE INTERESTED IN, I follow those specific accounts because that’s what I’m interested in, not follow an account just so I’m not able to see their posts. At least make a setting where you can change between the new one and the chronological one. And the reason why there’s not a lot of demand for the change is because bigger Instagram account don’t even tell the difference seeing they follow so many people. It dramatically affects smaller accounts because now you can barely even communicate with your followers and it dramatically decreases the percent of anyone to see your most recent posts. Why did you think the new algorithm was a good idea???
its amazing for artists , small business ,for entertainment i love it
Instagram as a Whole: Changed beyond Use
I do NOT like this new update at all. First of all, I did not update my app from Apple Store in a week, yet the whole entire app changed. Why am I not asked if I want to change the app completely or why cannot I not revert back to the old version? This should be an option. I have been very upset with the app lately. I have unwillingly accepted a long ago change y’all made to change the order in which pictures appear on instagram timeline with the dumb algorithm, but truly this ENTIRE change to how instagram works is unacceptable. The way to view instagram has been consistent with how you slide up to see new pictures and like pictures, which has made me continue to use the app. However, with this new way of viewing photos I will 80% less likely to look at this social media. It takes a lot more “thumb work” to swipe thru stories rather than slide through up and down the screen. I know this sounds silly yes but why would I go on a social media that requires more work and so many changes? I really hope your developers read this comment and take it seriously. I have gotten a few texts from my group messages complaining about this new update with not even updating the app in the apple store, so this matter should be taken seriously. Thank you for hearing me out.
So I just made a new Instagram account on top of the previous one I was using because I wanted to use both. So I tapped add account and I made a new one with my other email. I didn’t really want to confirm the email right away so I didn’t, but after about 5 minutes of trying to set up the new account, a pop up came that said that I had to confirm the email in order to continue using the account. So I was not too mad about that because confirming the email is pretty easy overall. But when I went to mail, I didn’t see an email. I refreshed the mail app over and over but still didn’t see and email. So I went back to Instagram and clicked “send again” hoping it would work, but when I went back to my inbox, there was still no email. I refreshed the inbox about 6 times before going back to Instagram and pressing “send again” another time. I went back to mail, and still didn’t see an email. This cycle continued for about 30 minutes before I gave up on making a new account. But when I tried to go to my previous account, it wouldn’t let me cancel the email confirmation, and there was no ‘x’ in the corner I could click. So I double clicked the home button and swiped out the app, but when I opened it again the email confirmation was still there, So I had to literally delete the app, and re-download it to be able to cancel the email confirmation. Please fix this.
Please take these suggestions into consideration
I never write reviews on anything so best believe I find these suggestions really significant. I use Instagram everyday and I don’t know what I would do if I didn’t check it every 5 seconds. We get it Instagrams great. However, the fact that the posts were taken out of chronological order is really annoying because you look like a creep if you liked a photo that was posted on someone’s page last week even though it just popped up on your timeline and now you have to actually go to someone’s page to see if they’ve posted anything new. So it would be amazing if the posts could be in chronological order again. Next, I believe that people should have the option to remove pictures from their carousel posts without having to delete the whole post in its entirety. It’d also be great if you could post images or videos with their actual size and not have to compromise with instagrams options or having to just use no crop apps. It’d also be really cool if you could have the option to make almost like sub caption on the rest of your carousel posts and not just an overall caption for all of them. We should also be able to comment with gifs like Facebook also being that Facebook now owns Instagram. Lasty, there should be no time limit to videos that people post. I hope you take these suggestions into consideration. Thanks in advance!❤️
Love multiple photos! One idea?
Hi instagram! I love the fact that on instagram now we can post more than one picture at a time! It makes me more excited to post and keep a better eye out of good photo opportunities. I have one idea though that could possibly appeal to others. I would love it if after a picture is posted, the order of the photos could be adjusted, or one of the photos itself could be removed! I believe that it is an option on facebook to remove only certain photos for a post. I bring this up because I think it will have 2 main benefits. As time goes on, sometimes people want to preserve the memories in a post and they like some of the pictures in the post as well, but because of different circumstances don’t necessarily want to have the first photo they see involve someone no longer in their life (old friend, ex boyfriend/girlfriend, ect). Also, sometimes multiple photos will be posted, and it won’t be until much later that one realizes that there is something they don’t want on instagram in one of the pictures - but all the rest are good. Again, if it would be possible to remove pictures from an instagram post or to rearrange the photo order, I think many people would find it beneficial. Do you see what I’m trying to put down here? I hope you will take my suggestion into consideration.
Nothing is being done
I love Instagram, as many of these other reviewers do. I’ve had an account since Instagram first started. I almost always love the updates and am always very excited to see what’s new. That’s why I am very disappointed with Instagram right now. I have two accounts logged onto my account, one being my account and the other being my boyfriends (mainly to see the stuff he dms me from private accounts). Mind you, both accounts are logged on not just my phone but also his. My app says it is up to date on updates however my account does not have the features of the new update. For example, my account does not have the questions feature for the stories, the new three line bar to access settings and saved, as well as the new location/logo for the archived stories. However, when I switch to my boyfriend’s account, his account is updated and equipped with all the features above. It is very frustrating that the update has been around so long and my account has still not gotten the new features. I have written several times to the “report a problem” resource and nothing has been done. I have deleted the app and re downloaded it several times and still nothing. This isn’t the first time I’ve had this problem but it’s the first time it’s taken more than a month to be fixed. It is very frustrating and I really wish someone would fix this.
How do I share my poems with the world?
Threw instagram I have been resourcing us as an outlet to share my poems in the book I am writing with the world. I am in search of more opportunity to get my poems out there to more individuals who are in search of the words to the answers of life as well. For me, writing poetry has become an opportunity to share my story and hardship and what I have learned with the world. I allowed myself the opportunity to sit down and spend the time trying to find the words to say what it was I was truest feeling, an opportunity to truest become the words that I was feeling and emoting in life. With my poetry, you are the poem, and you are the essence of the life you life, and the answer to the questions we ask each and everyday of our existence. Instagram, I would love the opportunity to write a book in honor of you and share it with the world on how seeing and truest feeling our own word threw poetry is so much more than metaphysical and on the surface and more spiritual and soulful with traveling the distance. I would love feedback on how I can share my story and poetic essence with the world. Please let me know anything I can do to get out there as the poetic artist I radiate onto you? Please read my poems as the captions to my most recent last 22 posts and tell me we don’t fall in love!!!
I love this app.. perfect for sharing my travel pics with the world. However recently I am not able to see all my pictures frm camera gallery when uploading, hence its not allowing me to upload multiple pictures at once. Hence giving 1 star less in rating. Update- Pls introduce a feature where we can re-arrange the photos in our feed in a specific way. Feel its much needed especially when sometimes we upload the pics at a later time
Still No iPad App
Instagram is, in turns, wonderful and frustrating. As someone who loves the simplicity of a service built around sharing photos, I love what Instagram started as. I love the development of image processing in app over the years: from filters to legitimate processing tools. I love that the photos default to a square form factor, but that we have the option to use different aspect ratios if the image benefits from it. I even think they’ve done some great things with video content. Adding the ability to easily swap between two accounts has been a godsend. I’m not a fan of the non-chronological timeline. Instagram does a horrible job of showing me what I “want” to see. It narrows down what’s at the top and often floods me with images that I’ve seen a dozen times in the last several days. Most infuriating is that there is no option to see things chronologically. Whatever. I’ll gripe and complain about this forever, but it isn’t my biggest complaint about Instagram. But there’s a realm in which Instagram just continually disappoints me. No iPad app. How can a major social media app exist in 2017 without a dedicated iPad app? Why should I still be using a scaled iPhone app on a 9.7” screen? It was funny for the first year or two of the iPad’s lifetime, but now it’s just stupidly overdue.
Please be more flexible
This app has the potential of blowing Twitter out of the water. However there’s something I feel is worth saying, not that it’ll convince you or even discourage future users, but I’ll say it anyways. In my opinion, Instagram really just needs to be more flexible with “Un safe”, content. I know the rules say it’s not allowed but let’s face facts. People post that stuff anyways and banning them is only alienating a portion of the users who GENUINELY LIKE YOUR APP! Meanwhile twitter is MUCH more lenient with that stuff. The only downside twitter has as far as I’m concerned is that it’s seemingly more complicated. All I’m saying is, I opt for a safe search/unsafe search engine just like Twitter and Tumblr have and you’ll have a more appreciated app. Point is if twitter and tumblr can get away with it, so can you. Oh! And remove the limit to sent photos, that’s just a more nit picky request. I don’t see the purpose to limiting them in terms of time, I’m sure you have your reasons but if you found an alternative way that allows people to continue viewing those photos after they’ve been sent I’m sure people would GREATLY APPRECIATE IT! That’s my personal bigger issue, I HATE receiving a photo of something important and forgetting to take a screenshot or accidentally closing it too soon and when I need to see it again I can’t open it up later. And I don’t doubt others have the same issue to deal with
its a great application for this era. alot to do in here. people could do business to boost their income. this apps help alot of people. we could help others in here too. sharing alot of things that has been going on all over the world for everyone to know whats going on in the world. sharing a great moments with the pictures and videos. its an application for a kept. i hope the features & all will keep on getting better as time goes, even for the private account. Thanks for the happiness.
Use Less Data NOT WORKING
I normally wouldn’t be doing this, I need to say this right now. Instagram, you have a great app, a good look, etc. The one problem I have with you is that I can’t stop videos from playing automatically. The one feature you have when it comes to your website on a desktop or laptop, you don’t have it on your mobile versions; I’m disappointed. I try to go and stop this from happening when I use cellular instead of WiFi and it turns out that the video still plays automatically. Why? I lose more data when the video plays automatically let alone even loading the thumbnail of a video. The “Use Less Data” feature doesn’t work, at all. About a few versions ago or at least back in August or early September, the feature worked and I didn’t really need to be that concerned. But I can’t use a feature that won’t work. I have tried everything, turning on and off my phone, updated the app, and even deleted it and reinstalled it. I tried googling why it won’t work but there wasn’t any result that showed how to fix this stupid problem. I’m pretty sure there were other people that were experienced this because googling a topic and having shown something in the search bar as a top result shows that people have been googling a specific topic. But no result. So please can you fix this because this is a problem I’m not going to deal with anymore.
great app!! but for no reason it stopped my accound from being seen. (i have a puplic account i use for my tumbling and flexibly). i only have 600 followers, but from getting 160-180 likes per post, i was shocked to see it go down to 90 in the space of 2 days. my profile visits also dropped massivly, from 600-800 to 200. idk whats going on so please trlk me why? thanks
Some issues with tagging people and notifications
Ok so Instagram is one of my favorite apps however I have some issues in regards to tagging people. One of my friends account was disabled and is no longer in use but that old @ is still showing and I can’t remove it. Not only that but an ex friend blocked me awhile back and I would like to be able to remove her @ from the post but it won’t let me for some reason. When I tag people in a story it shows that that person is tagged but people will swipe up and say the @ won’t work even though it should. The only other issue I have with Instagram (that I can think of) is the fact that as soon as I open the app all of my Instagram notifications disappear which bothers me because I have multiple accounts and don’t always know what goes with what and it helps to see it all spread out individually where I don’t have to hunt for it. I have a lot of my friends DM me and some of it is more serious conversations than others and I don’t always have the time to sort through and see if I need to respond immediately or if a response can wait which is why I like the notifications (just not that they disappear). The fact that it does that bothers the hell out of me because no other app I have does that and if I want the notifications cleared I can do it manually.
Best Social Media App
Instagram is easy to use and keeps getting better! Tag people in posts, great working live streams +filters, all types of posts from all your friends (Challenges, Updates, Memories, etc.), messaging through Instagrams in app direct messages +groups, filters for pictures you want to post, and for the over protective parents if you will, you have the ability to restrict anyone without permission from user from seeing posts, and not to mention the filters on post, on ones profile you can add links to personal websites, write some information about yourself, or just update your followers! A favourite feature of mine is public commenting directly on ones post, and if any haters post something offensive, you can delete the comment as soon as it’s up, easy as that! As well as most social media apps and websites, you can block and/or report other users who break Instagrams community guidelines. Not to mention the fact that no matter how old or how popular the post, no matter who it’s been sent to, you can always take it down and removed from anyone ever to see again, there is absolutely no limit on how many posts one can have, and there is always a function to translate other languages in to the users selected language
I love Insta because it helps me isolate myself from the world. More and more now I communicate to people thru messages and never have to be bothered by seeing them in person. Soon, with the power of Insta, I will never have to remember how to talk to people face to face ever again. I couldn't be more grateful! Big thanks to Mark Zuckerberg
I’ve never had that big of a problem with Instagram. The algorithm has been a bit annoying but it’s nothing that has ever physically annoyed me. But I just saw the update for “filtering out any bullying comments”. First of all, I agree with the whole message of not bullying children or harassment of children online. That’s not ok. However, filtering out comments involving bullying and such doesn’t make sense due to the fact that half of the time people are just joking. Secondly, you are restricting people’s rights to speak their minds. This site/app should be a place where people should be allowed to say and post whatever they please, regardless of whether it’s right or wrong. There are of course boundaries but it is very difficult to set those boundaries online. I feel like restricting “bullying” comments will just cause more problems within the instagram community. Because there is no way to tell a person’s real intentions on whatever they say online. You just can’t. It’s near impossible. Restricting someone’s thoughts on an app/site is not a way to stop online bullying or harassment. I understand that cyber bullying is very wrong and very uncalled for, however restricting any comments involving the context “bullying” isn’t going to solve a lot. There are other ways to prevent/promote non-bullying behavior on websites. Filtering out comments is not a way to go about the situation.
Changes that should be made
Don’t get me wrong I love Instagram. This app is one that i find myself on the most but a few changes should be made. 1 being that Instagram crops your photo (ones taken on Snapchat) so you can’t fit the entire picture. I hate the white boarders and it would be so nice to not have cropped photos!! 2. I should be able to search a certain person that viewed my story. I get 1800+ views on my stories and it takes me so long to go through everyone that viewed it just to look for the one person. Also why did you guys change the order in your following list. It used to be who you recently followed and I loved that, now it’s in a weird order and it’s obnoxious. Please make these changes. UPDATE: Why don’t you guys listen to your users?? Instead of making it so I can search a specific person who viewed my story they freaking take away the ability to see who viewed my highlights after 24 hours overall. Please change this. This is incredibly unsafe. I have a public profile and I felt relieved to know I can see who was visiting my page and viewing my stories. If a bot or a inappropriate page viewed my story I had the ability to block that page and now they can visit my page and view my highlights without my knowledge and that is uncomfortable!! LISTEN TO YOUR USERS!!
I started to play with Instagram a while back because I was studying e-commerce. I enjoy the fact that it showcases photos or videos only and I've discovered some truly talented and inspiring photographers. Only 4 *'s because the messaging app can be intrusive. I've received messages from lonely hearts and I feel as if it's becoming the new (fill-in-the-blank) dating app since it's free. Many impostor accounts too, it seems, since it's easier to set up than Facebook.
I miss the old format
I love Instagram! It's done a lot to help my career. But whatever new algorithm replaced the old stinks. I am REALLY tired of seeing the same 15 people's posts over and over!!! I follow, like, 400 people! I follow a lot of other artists for inspiration, community and connection, but for some reason, I get a constant stream of my cousin's rabbits and my client's lunches (I can't exactly unfollow my client or my cousin). It's particularly frustrating when a post for a relevant event pops up and I realize it happened 3 days ago. Sure, I may not have seen it anyway, but if I'm gonna see it, I'd like to know I can go! And what does this mean for my art?! Am I not reaching people who are ALSO getting off Instagram 30 seconds after they get on out of frustration that they are STILL seeing their cousin's rabbits?! It would be REALLY cool if we at least had the option to view our feed the old way. Wouldn't that be an interesting experiment? If that's too much, how about a trial run? Give people the option of viewing chronologically or the new way. Majority wins! All I REALLY care about is that Instagram does not go the way of Facebook. I BARELY use FB anymore- it's too much! It feels like high school when the girl next to me in class kept gossiping in my ear while I'm trying to read "Bobby commented on Tara's comment on Devin's photo of Mike and Tina". Don't caaaaaaaare! Anyway, end rant!
I am highly concerned on the security issue, being picture'n'pcture Active on these apps in background access, where no purpose would see reason. I have found it useful to read through the Help Centre of the App. This aided greatly in setting up my Account and Images correctly, thus maximizing what Instagram can do for me to promote and share. - Stryker's Lounge [YouTube]
Can’t get through app
Okay so my friend deleted Instagram off my phone and i was like okay I’m just gonna redownload it okay. So then I did the whole redownload thing and the crazy part is that once I did that I tried to log back into my account and it wouldn’t let me it kept saying “something went wrong please try again” and it was kinda annoying so I reset my password but it did the same thing each time I tried a different account same thing then I went through google to instagram and I was able to go through I tried the app Instagram again it just kept on not letting me in. So I decided to try and make a new account and it straight up ain’t letting me make the account it’s now saying my account was “disabled” for not following Instagram guidelines even though my account w.gyimah does nothing wrong cause I’ve only posted once and I’m supposed to get a dm from a friend to work on a project but I’m unable to do that since i can’t go through and google doesn’t do that stuff so I just kinda want Instagram to let me through cause I don’t think I’ve done anything wrong my 1 post is about football so I don’t really see the problem but anyways if you see read this could you find it helpful so instagram can see this cause I feel as if it’s a problem or a bug that needs to be fixed thanks I’ll change the rating if they fix it 🥴
All we want is chronological order!
I love this app so much. I use it every single day, and use it to keep in contact with my friends. It is very easy to post things, direct messages work well, and stories are a neat feature even if it wasn’t an original idea. Although there are many impressive features on this app, I am not sure if I like the new comment section where you can see the top liked comments first and not the most recent ones. I feel like I miss out on everything that Instagram doesn’t deem important. Same goes with my timeline! I just want chronological order back. I miss out on so many posts that I am interested in. I often don’t see posts from friends and family anymore because the format doesn’t show me them. I don’t understand why I need to see posts from both 2 minutes ago and 5 days ago right under each other. Not to mention the INSANE amount of ads I see on here now. The algorithm specifically is created to benefit it’s sponsors and ignores the creators on the app. I dislike that anyone can promote a post now. I get random posts of things I do not care about. If I do not follow someone, why do I need their posts in my timeline? It seems as if everyone in these reviews agrees that all we want is the chronological format back. I don’t understand why the people who run this app do not listen to what their customers want.
Still good, not great (iPhone X)
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
Great app, feed flaws.
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.
I love Instagram sooo much, I use it everyday and I really don’t have a problem with anything other than two things. Problem #1 GO BACK TO CHRONOLOGICAL ORDER!! Everybody has posted and given plenty of recognition that they hate the out of order posts. Problem #2 isn’t much of a problem just something I’d enjoy and I know many others would too. I’ve had many scenarios where I’ll post a composition of pictures, then a few days later I’ll realize that there’s a picture in that post that I really don’t like. In that scenario here are your choices, either delete every picture that comes with, or deal with that one or few pictures you hate. I’d love it if you could delete a picture or more instead of having to delete every other picture in that post, and I’d also love if you could go back and edit pictures that you’ve already posted. Please consider this, it would be very helpful. I’m tired of having to stare at a post that’s been up for a while that I really like and having to delete it because it isn’t cropped right, has a weird filter and looks weird in my feed, or dealing with a picture I hate in between a bunch that I love. If you could please make an update and include any to all of these things, me and many others would love Instagram even more.
Why aren’t the @ in the bio active?
The @ in the bio aren’t a link which it should be by now. They work perfectly fine on ever other Instagram simulator app or web extension. The web extensions are way better than the actual app ‘cause you can do everything that the app can do expect for dm (see or send), turn on post notifications, or see post notifications. They really need to make @ links in a bio clickable and also finally go back to suggesting other things related to what you’ve just followed like if you followed a band, then in the drop down suggestions, they should first show stuff pertaining to the band as a suggestion to follow. The drop down suggestions wouldn’t matter much if the @ links were active and clickable. You also need to stop wasting my top searched pages on the search page for three things I haven’t looked at, have no clue about the page, and or nothing I follow, follow then and or they don’t follow any of the same stuff. They aren’t my top searches if I’ve never searched for that page. Stop doing that. Also, stop putting manly gender related suggestions on my explorer page. I’m female and every year when spring and summer come around, you fill the explorer page with a lot of bikini pictures and a lot from the same person. I don’t follow anything like that so I don’t care to see it. It’s supper annoying.
Needs Some Improvement
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.
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.
Fix this please!
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.
Please stop making unnecessary changes
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.
A sad user
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 :(
Instagram is the only social media that I use. One of those reasons is because of how Amazing I find it to be. I've never had a problem occur and all the features worked perfectly until now. I logged off of my Instagram app and when I tried to log back in, it popped up "We could not log you in" or "something went wrong". When this happened I thought maybe someone had blocked me and my account had been disabled but later I found out that if that was the case they would tell you whether it is disabled or not. After a lot of failed attempts, I decided to login through Google and not use the app. I was actually able to login. So what is the problem with me logging in on the app? I even deleted and reinstalled the app, but only this time to cause myself more problems. When I reinstalled the app, I clicked on the Instagram icon and then it just crashes. I'm very displeased with what is happening. I've sent feedback but nothing seems to be changing. This was the only way that I really had contact with the outside world and being on my page allowed me to feel free and express myself. Now I can't do that and I don't know if I'll ever be able to get my account back working again. I hope that this conflict is resolved, but until then I'm giving Instagram 1 star.
Fix in update
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?
YOU NEED TO LISTEN TO YOUR USERS
I feel the need to make this comment because I know your development team MUST understand the growing problems, yet seem to not care. Lets get obvious stuff out of the way first: algorithm. This has been an issue for months. Though this out-of-order feed may work in some contexts, it is not wanted or useful here. People want to see posts in the order they appear. If anything, add an adjustment in settings that lets you switch between chronological and suggested order could be added to please both sides. My next point is disappearing DMs. These are completely useless and do not make sense within the context of the app. Instagram, for most, is a way to reflect and share their life to their followers; however, by adding such a private, snapchat-inspired feature, the app has gone from a open place to share to a yet another platform for texting. There are other smaller issues. For example, the saved tab does not seem to work for me or many others. I also do not like how I receive notifications when other people comment. Such additions distract from instagram's intent and usage and only make the experience LESS enjoyable. Thanks
Feedback and suggestions improvements
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.
Account limit PLEASE READ
Love the app but I want to see just one thing change: the limit for how many accounts you can have in the same device is 4 I believe. I’d like to see it changed to 8 or maybe even 10. I understand wanting to have a somewhat accurate idea of how many people are using your app based on the number of accounts active. But there are ways for users to get past the account limit that many people have been able to exploit. Apparently it’s some glitch or bug that people are using. The point is, people are still making more accounts for themselves regardless of the limit set. If you allowed more accounts or even just took away the limit altogether, it would be a lot easier on those of us who want to run multiple accounts. I am a content creator so I have my main account, my personal account, my private account for my close friends to see, and an account for my art. I want to make more accounts so that I can reach wider audiences through each little niche I make an account for. Limiting the number of active accounts per device also limits the size to which one’s audience can grow which, in turn, reduces activity on your app so there’s no real benefit. So please do away with the limit or at least change it to allow more. Thank you :)
IG dared to sideline posts from my actual friends.
I recently got into taking photos and one of the best ways to quickly share my images with others is Instagram. I can also connect with other great photographers and it has helped expand my perspective on the art. This is invaluable to me. However, recently my feed has utterly ceased to show me pics from people who i follow and like the most. The more popular a profile is, the more it shows up, so that, for example, i just began to see 10+ nat geo posts at a time in a few minutes even though i hit like on a lot of other images from other people. So i had no choice but to unfollow the nat geo profiles, which i did not have to do a few months ago. As for the people i know irl and like every single one of their posts, i no longer get any notification of their posts, and i may or may not even see it on my feed until it is a day old or more. I dont even care about the ads, they are actually targeted towards me very well. I am currently considering other platforms to share my images but unfortunately this is the most well known. Once a good one pops up it will be my pleasure to switch. Sorry IG, but its very clear that you do not value me as a user whatsoever. In reality you will not look at this review at all.
It's good but I have some suggestion
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!
Please change the new layout of how you view accounts
I have been on Instagram for about 7 years now and I’ve always loved it but please please please listen to your users. My Instagram updates by itself even though my automatic updates are off. I was just on Instagram about 30 minutes ago and it was fine now I go back on and my profile layout is completely different. My profile picture is now on the right side everything is clustered and it is very large, when I go to other peoples accounts it is the same and it is very annoying because it is very hard to navigate this way. Also please stop changing the Algorithm I understand that you guys do it because of advertising purposes but before I can see content from pages that I like I see about 30+ ads and even when I say don’t show things like this they some how still pop up. Posts from friends or businesses that I am interested in don poo up on my timeline the same day they are posted. A post from three weeks ago will pop on my timeline followed by one from 4 days ago and it is very annoying because I have to turn on post notifications just so that i can see content I am interested in and not jus advertisements. Please fix the layout of the way you view profiles!!
SUGGESTION! How about an Option For Chronological order?
So I seriously like this app and following creators but I have a problem with how my feed is always set up. First of all, my feed is not in chronological order! The way it’s set up is very very unnecessary, I miss many posts from the accounts I follow! I also end up seeing posts from the second they upload a photo to the next post being from another person from 5 days ago! Second, since the way our feed is set up it keeps changing the posts every single time I come back to the app, again with the same thing, a post from 5 days ago to like 3 minutes ago. Like you’re lucky to catch one that’s very recent. That’s just so uncomfortable and very annoying. Please bring back chronological order or have an option for this!!(I seriously believe having an option is perfect!! It gives us a choice!!) It’s more helpful than accidentally missing a post because the way this is set up. Or completely miss a whole week of posts by someone. Anyways We have been trying to ask you guys for so long now! It’s certainly something we need back. Thanks for reading and listening to the us users! Hope to hear back from you guys some time!
Don’t bring out all this new stuff about managing my time on the app with a timer. Bring the chronological timeline back! Although this should occur for many reasons (stop slighting small business accounts and others who really rely on interactivity on the app to make a living being the most important reason) chronological timeline enforces the time management on your app to begin with. When I worked two jobs and got behind on my feed, I would take my time to go through but would ultimately “max out” at 2 days into the past. If I want to see further back than this I just went to the profiles I wanted to check in on. Now I have to check in on every profile I want to see (because why else would I be following it?!) because I am shown week old, irrelevant content before I am shown a small business’ sale announcement from that morning. The algorithmic timeline makes me feel overwhelmed and as if I’ll never catch up on my feed and therefore have simply spent much less time on the only social media I truly cared for. Bring back the old tried and true and THEN worry about time management or other things you’re building into your updates while your users become more and more upset with what this app has become.
My Story Highlights Disappeared
It appears that my instagram seems to get things such as Instagram stories, and later on story highlights, rather late in the game. As in months and months after most other people I know have gotten it. Sometimes I’ll get it in an update, get used to it, but by the following update it’ll be gone. Currently this is an ongoing battle with the story highlights. My friends can see the ones I’ve posted previously, but on my account on my phone, they are gone and the option to view mine or others is simply not present. I have a feeling it might have to do with the fact I do not have more than 400 followers. Those with low numbers possibly are at higher risk for getting the new features last? That’d be a real bummer if that’s the case. It’s not my phone, cause it’s a new model iPhone and it shouldn’t be the programming system, cause I’m on latest iOS and I update my phone and apps regularly. Hope they figure out this issue as well as bring back the CHRONOLOGICAL FEED, because it would be pretty upsetting if they start allowing only those who’ve paid into the app, or bought a significant amount of followers to access their updates first, and some not at all, leaving the rest of us scratching our heads.
I know a lot of people may complain about Instagram and the way it’s being used by certain people; HOWEVER, I’ve never had an issue with the platform itself. The only thing I can really talk about is the timeline is a little off. First, you’ll see something from four hours ago then something from one day ago then something from five minutes ago so, yes, the timeline is a little wacky. That’s the only thing I can really think of though that could be worked on but, other than that, I really have no complaints about the Instagram app. I do wish we can filter out the direct messages though and have a little more control of who can message us and who can’t (i.e. I don’t mind certain people following me and liking a few pictures here and there if they like what they see; however, it doesn’t mean I want them in my DMs either lol like is there anyway that someone can block a person from their DMs without having to block the whole profile as well? That’s what I mean by a little more control over the DMs). All in all though, Instagram is probably my most used social media platform and I love it!
Instagram is fine on its own, good differentiation
I like Instagram because of the way you can focus content and link your images through hashtags. The new feature name tags is redundant. I am not into it. I would hate to see this platform become a carbon copy of Snapchat just for pure competition. My point is about demographics and differentiation, Instagram lets everyone get in on the fun and not just certain age groups or business vs non business so Snapchat is clearly for much younger groups. I think if they do become too much like Snapchat or another platform that they will no longer be a leader in social media platforms. I don’t like the stories feature either but I do love having options to post as image or images that can become videos as posts. I honestly don’t use Instagram to watch videos so too much of that could get old. But sure in Japan these features are all included. I also detest when products copy each other so I hope you guys remain innovators in the US and not sheep! Otherwise I’m jumping ship and leaving social media to the naive teens and 20 somethings. I’m probably the only one on the planet who thinks like this so maybe I’ll just go and build my own app instead, j.k!
It’s amazing and a great social media platform, the same instagram we’ve always had just a little better with every update. I like the new features, but the new bullying filter feature is removing some of the most simple comments, especially when it comes to songs for some reason? Like people will ask for a song name in the comments and if you reply for some reason it won’t let me comment the name of the song, and like they’re really simple like “Sorry-Justin Bieber” got filtered out. Then there’s the issue with reporting things, I’ve seen a lot of graphic images of self harm and every time I report it I get the same “we’ve reviewed ____’s post and have found it doesn’t violate our community guidelines.” When reporting things for self harm is like its own separate option? And there’s a bug that’s personally ruined the entire app for me which is hard to describe but if you send someone a picture the picture will remain at the bottom of your chat where your most recent message should be and this gave me anxiety/caused me to respond to messages late and ultimately led to me deleting the app. A calling feature would be nice too so you don’t have to go onto two completely private accounts and start a live together.
It’s okay, but I have a suggestion
I really use Instagram a lot; everyday. However, there’s a few things that I strongly believe would be very helpful which leads me to my suggestion. Is it possible for all newsfeeds go back in chronological order? And while you’re not using the app, and people come back on the app, there’s a pop-up that says “what you missed while you were gone” , and then it takes you to another feed that’s not in chronological order. Also, people could go to their settings, and switch the mode on/off to choose whether they want the pop-up or not. I think this way, people could have their original news feed in chronological order and then the “what you missed” feed. The ‘missed’ feed could possibly different ‘labels’ like ‘5 days ago’ ‘3 days ago’ ‘yesterday’ and etc, while leaving the chronological feed dating back to 24 hours ago. This would allow all instagram posts to stay on the news feed for 24 hours and afterwards moving anything after that to the ‘missed’ feed. With this change, it gets rid of old posts, and keeps the feed fresh. I thought of this idea because I see stuff from days ago, and I feel so lost looking on my news feed, so yea, I hope that helps. Great app.
Concerned user !
Howdy, I’ve been using Instagram for a decent amount of time now. And earlier today it was working fine, seeing all the YouTubers stories, liking my friends photos, directly messaging people and uploading pictures and stories worked fine too, but now it isn’t loading for me like at all.. I tried to close all my apps and shut down my phone because, I’m on it a portion of the day and I thought that would be the troublesome issue, but I turned it on, same blank feed, can’t click on stories and my explore page is just filled with random photos. And so I deleted the app redownloaded it, and logged back on. Took me a while to log on because it sent a message saying there’s an issue try again later, or something among the lines of it, and I tried again, beginning to feel annoyed and bitter about the whole situation when it worked! I was super excited, but then nothing loaded again, besides my direct messages, which I can’t complain about, but if you could prevent this from happening that would be spectacular! And so no one else had my same complaint. That’s all really, other than that this app is very addictive and well thought out.
Seriously how have you guys NOT done this yet...
Absolutely love Instagram. It’s my favorite social media app by far. However I have one suggestion and I know soooooooo many people would love this feature as well... You’ve been around for 8 years now. So ya know....when you and new friend start talking about life, and your hobbies, and fun parties from the past, blah blah blah.... and then you’re like “oh! Let me just show you the picture!” Then you realize you have to scroll for ages through your photos until you finally get to that ONE photo from 4 years ago 🙄. It would be so much easier if you were able to access your photos in month to month folders for each year. Because 8 years later, we have an online photo album of our life from those years, that’s ALWAYS going to be there for you to access. So even when I’m 70 I can look back at my 20’s. But not have to scroll for 3 hours until finally gettin all the way back to my 20’s!!!! Lol you catch my drift? I think I speak for everyone when I say... please please pretty pretty please add this feature?! Thank you, Your loyal and almost completely happy customer 😁
the q&a sticker DOES’NT work!
would be 5 stars if the dang questions sticker worked. it doesn’t show up on my sticker menu but all of my friends have it. please fix it ASAP. how come my side account has these features and my main doesn’t? i’ve tried EVERYTHING. deleting the app, logging out, only having my main on the app and nothing has worked. i have a i phone 6s and version 60.0. the update was like version 52 so why isn’t it working? i only rated 5 stars for you to see that your users of your app are unhappy and yet you do nothing to fix our bugs or problems! i’ve reported this over 10 times and your support team has made 0 effort to fix this issue that has been going on for a month which looks like your app has 0 interest in making sure ALL of your users are happy bc i’m sure not and MANY other people are having the same issue and yet we’re being IGNORED. it’s been over a month and this problem has persisted. take your negative feedback and work on it. your obviously not making an effort to fix this problem so i should make 0 effort supporting your app. now do i have your attention?
Bad for business
I’m a new business and created a page specifically for that reason. While creating a following and following others I start to see posts from the same person, then all the posts from the next person. Huh, so confused. My other page shows things from different people as they post them. Why do I have to scroll alllllllll the way to the bottom to see if anyone else actually posted anything new, say..... in the last few days?? So I delete the first person at the top of my feed to see what’s happens. All the next persons posts are there from the last year, right at the top! What, but why in the H...... so I delete that next one, and posts from everyone I’m following is now allllll gone. It’s like I’m following zero people. It’s like if I don’t follow those two people whose posts were dominating the top of my feed, then I have nothing to see. And when I add those two back on, the same thing happens! Those same two people posts are dominating the top of my feed! Very frustrating! But IG is so freaking amazing, Right? Maybe i should call over to Facebook for assistance, since they now own IG.
Serious info update lag
There is a serious lag with the comment and like updates as well as people following and unfollowing. I haven’t had anyone unfollow me in a long time, I don’t post a lot and the people who are following me are all people I’ve known or had on here for years... recently I’ve been posting a lot more and I get notifications on my phone 10 times a day that I have a new follower but the number only changes by like 2 or it goes down. Same with likes or comments on posts, I go to look and there’s nothing there or no change to what was.. Also when posting a video it shows number of ‘views’ but one ‘like’, when you click on it it shows the list of users who liked it.. what’s the purpose of not having the 2 totals actually side by side? I don’t care about followers or likes but when my phone is buzzing all the time with notifications and I get on here to look and it’s not registering it’s pretty annoying. Increasingly so that I want to stop using the app. I’m in school to be a talent manager and social media is a large platform for building connections. So I think you should do some bug fixes, maybe the lag is from the ridiculous influx of unnecessary ads you allow. #sellouts just sayin
Bad experience for photographer
I use Instagram daily for the use of photography. I love posting on there and getting feedback since Instagram started. But since it was updated from chronological order it’s been so hard to just get any more feedback or any followers so now you’re competing against the most popular people on Instagram to get feed back and followers. It will become very frustrating even if you put hashtags or you just posted your latest photo with a hashtag, you will not pop up first and that’s very frustrating. Because I’m just trying to get my brand out there and I have to do all these things that might not even work. Before it Was so easy to make friends now it’s horrible because most of the people are famous and never respond back, have thousands or probably millions of followers and there’s the first ones to pop out because of the Chronological order that was removed. Please change!!!! There are so many other creators that are trying to get out there and they can’t get any where because you decided to put this new update that lets others creators they are ready out there get even more famous to get more feed. Like moving every to the bottom of the food chain.
Chronological Order/Explore Page
Please, I believe most IG users would appreciate if our timeline feed were in chronological order. It just makes keeping up with who we follow much easier. I also noticed that the explore page has changed. This is a little bit more complicated to explain but I‘ll try my best. When I first tap on the icon, I see the overview of what‘s on the page: various videos, pictures, memes, etc.. However when I go further and tap on one of the pictures I saw to see more details and start to scroll down, I see completely different posts than I saw on the overview. I‘m not sure if this is supposed to help broaden the scope of which posts I get exposed to, or what the point is, it throws me off quite a bit. I expect to see one thing and then see another. Maybe a solution would be to provide an option where each individual user can choose one of the other? That would be nice. Other than, I thoroughly enjoy the updates, especially the option to share posts separately with others. I think the design is nice and have high hopes for it. Thank you!
listen to this
Four stars, one issue. Overall I love the app, but you've made it hard for people like me to redeem themselves before a problem evolving and/or the panic of it doing so by creating the feature that sends people notifications whenever somebody deletes a message in their chat. What I'm talking about touches up on OCD, anxiety, and just anyone who's trying to do things right and land somewhere. Doesn't matter which three it is, if you make a typo, say something that sounds interpreted a different way than you intended and want to fix it, or talking business and accidentally mess up, this feature takes our one chance at (as said) redemption and now instead we have to either look or feel messy in replace of looking shady in the eye of the other person when Instagram tells them we deleted a message. We're basically a cat with two lives but now even the chance, which matters and is helpful, that we're going to survive another lifetime is brought down to zero. Please be considerate. I've had lots of Instagram crashes in the past, still when I press gifs it does crash but this topic is most important. Take the feature away.
I’ve had Instagram for awhile
I’ve been using Instagram for a very long time and I’ve always loved the app, but ever since that new update, my accounts have been acting up. I have five different accounts that I am logged into and today I was logged out of my main account and it’s not letting me log back in. I checked on my iPad to see if I was still logged in there, and I was. I try to log back in but it’s telling me the maximum number of accounts has been reached and when I try to log out of one account it’s still there thus not allowing me to log into my main account. Some of my friends even complain about how they keep getting logged out. Also one of my accounts isn’t updated, my main account has always been updating, but the latest update my other accounts don’t have. If there is an update it should apply for all accounts not just one or two. I love the app, but some small things need to be changed. I rated this five stars so you guys can actually take the time to see this because it isn’t fair I and many others need to deal with this all the time.
Scrambled Order of Posts 😒
I have used Instagram for ages, and during all those years I have never once had a complaint about the app. But ever since the posts on my newsfeed have been scrambled, I have been missing out on a lot of my followers’ posts, requiring me to scroll for ages just to make sure I’m caught up, and sometimes I come across posts from friends that were posted maybe three-five (or more) days ago that I’m just now seeing. It’s honestly so irritating; it’s discouraged me from even bothering to scroll through my newsfeed and instead click on specific accounts one by one to make sure I didn’t miss any posts from them, or turning on post notifications for a bunch of accounts. It’s a pain, to say the least. Instagram, I really hope you fix this issue. All of these updates for the app and none of them have to do with this major problem. Maybe instead of worrying about issuing new features to your app and mimicking other apps like Snapchat, you should focus on reversing issues that are making your customers unhappy, like the one I’ve addressed, to make Instagram better. It’s one of the most common complaints amongst IG users; you need to listen to your customers.
It’s great (but...)
Alright so I’ve instagram for probably 5 or 6 years now and it’s great! I have three accounts and I love how manageable they are and how it’s so simple to post and search for photos, users, etc. My chief complaint is that chronological feed isn’t an option. It’s great that Instagram wants to show me the most “relevant” images according to their algorithm, but the algorithm just does not work for me. The first post that comes up is usually from the last day or so ago but then all of a sudden there’s some photo from two months ago and I’ve accidentally liked it. Do you realize how awkward that is? In addition, the fact that images aren’t chronological prevents me from knowing whether or not I’ve seen all my friends new posts. I used to be able to scroll until the last post that I had seen and know for sure “I’m up to date” but now I’m like “oh I saw that yesterday... wait the post after it is new... uhhhhh” so if instagram could please allow an option to use their algorithm or organize posts chronologically, I’d appreciate it. I’m not asking that we completely return to chronological ordering because some people do like the algorithm, but please I’d just like an option somewhere.
Just a few requests maybe..???
First, I’m sure I can speak for the entire instagram community when I say NO ONE GIVES A CRAP ABOUT YOUR INSTA LIVE STORY!!! Stop notifying me every time someone goes live. I don’t care if I’m in the app already either. If I gave that much of a hoot about any ones lives I would personally go look them up and be nosey. I don’t need an announcement for every person every time. I follow over 700 people. That’s a lot of SO AND SO IS NOW LIVE! Good for them and their lack of a life. I’ve got better things to do. Second, I ask that in todays world you not allow ANYTHING political to be sponsored. I mean we get people’s opinions shoved down our throats on facebook and twitter and even their posts on IG enough times throughout the day without the actual app needing to spam us with it. I mean can’t we have one app that at least attempts to be a happy neutral place. If people want to post on their own personal account that’s fine but can you sponsor it somewhere else please? Other than that I thank you for being a pretty awesome place that allows me to post a photo and turn off commenting lol
My account has been deleted 3 times
I’ve been trying to find out what the heck can I do since my account has been deleted not once but three times. I have even changed my password and that didn’t even help. After I made a new page yesterday I found MY missing page with MY name on it but it had a different screen name. The only reason I knew it was mine because all of the exact friends that I added a day and two days before were on that page. I reported it and they said they can’t doing nothing about it. Yesterday I even added my profile pic and under my bio and apology to all of my friends for the re add. I even told them the name of the other account is not me so they would know. Well this morning my page was gone again. I will change my rating if something can be resolved. Update: It has been resolved my page was not only hacked and they even changed my screen name. I was able to get my page back and now I have to delete everyone that the hacker started following. Other than that I’m very happy to have my page back.
I’ve used Instagram for quite a few years now. I’ve learned so much on it over the years! It’s a great way to post things and to make very cute and fun accounts!! For people who choose to use Instagram as a way to bully another person or post inappropriate pictures of them or someone else, there are many ways to alert that. You’re able to report a comment or post that someone posted or commented and your aloud to delete comments that somebody else comments on your account. There are a few other things you can do that I think are helpful in a serious situation !! Instagram is such a popular app for all of its great features it has, you can go live and you kick out people on your live that you don’t want one there or that you don’t know so they can’t watch. Instagram also has its own story so you can post thing with cute stickers on them that your friends can see ( you can change who can see your Instagram story if you want. ) anyway I think Instagram is a very cool app- if you don’t have it yet you should totally check it it’s 100% free! Write your own review tell me what you think of the app so far!!
I Have a Few Suggestions
Don’t get me wrong, Instagram is an awesome app. There’s just a few things I think would help this app be an even greater app. One thing is, well, I’ve encountered an account who, I think, had suicidal impressions and depressed thoughts. I think there should be an option to tell the creators of Instagram that there’s that kind of person on and I don’t want others under the influence that all of the previously mentioned things are okay. Because they’re not. I also think there should be an option to report a story post. This one person followed me, and (as always) I look at their posts and such. And this one person used an inappropriate name for colored people, and they said an inappropriate name for a private part. I think having an option to report the stories is another way to make Instagram better. I know this is a long review, but (if you read this Instagram creators) thanks. I hope for you to add these suggestions to make Instagram a better and more secure app for people to have fun on, and to communicate with followers and friends.
I love instagram
I love Instagram it's an amazing platform to showcase and promote your brand! I think a lot of people are missed informed of what Instagram is it's not a social site for meeting "friends" or connecting w/ family, although some people do it. Some accounts benefit by showing there followers pictures of there company's family an people behind the hard work! But, mind you thats why "FaceBook" was created to show & share pictures with each other out of love. I'm not saying people don't love on Instagram but it's more superficial! I had an account with Facebook for over 10 years and I would comment to my friends posts and I wouldn't even get a reply or complement back and they expect me to continue to like everything without talking so I don't have Facebook anymore! And why I have Instagram instead! But now I am promoting a brand an myself so The circumstances have changed! I highly recommend Instagram if you want to promote creat a Brand or simply have an accout cause your famous and that's what famous people to create a platform showcasing there worth!
annoying bugs or glitches
i’ve had instagram for a long time now and it’s been working fine until instagram added the story poll. when it came out, i didn’t have it, when i made my spam account, it did have it. after that, i tried updating the app, and my phone as well and nothing happened. same thing happened when the slider came out. my main account doesn’t have it but my spam does. i don’t understand why this is happening but it’s really annoying because i don’t get why instagram would give one of my accounts things and not give my other account the same things. and you wanna know something else? the exact same thing happened with the question stickers. i’ve honestly tried to do so many things but nothing has worked. a lot of people i know as well don’t have one thing out of the three but i don’t know anyone that doesn’t have all three like me. i just want to know when this bug or glitch will be fixed because it’s pretty annoying. i gave this 5 stars because everything else is fine, EXCEPT FOR THIS.
ok, i love instagram. it's a really great platform. but the lack of care and lack of attention in the support request category for self harm and suicide is absolutely ridiculous. i've reported numerous posts of people with slices on their arms and ropes around their necks and guns to their head and bite marks on their wrists and i constantly get the "unfortunately, this doesn't violate our community guidelines" crap. uhhh, if you actually reviewed the post and held it to the instagram guidelines, you would see that yes - it does violate the guidelines. i'm so tired of these important reports being completely ignored so constantly. STOP IT. get a new management team or something - the inability to actually review those posts is insane. instead of wasting your energy deleting "racist" posts (some of them are but not all) and "sjw offensive" posts, maybe pay just a little more attention to the more important ones. also, no ipad app? dude. it's wayyyy overdue. it's 2018, my friends. please get with it. i'll continue using instagram because it's a big part of promoting my business and keeping in touch with friends but bro. please pay attention and take our feedback. we're the customers here; listen to us.

best. app. ever. invented.
i love this app bro
I dont have a major issue but i wanna know y i dont have the option to add MUSIC to my stories i update everytime and i still dont have that option everybody have it but ME and i think that is so unfair
i’ve sent many emails about this I really do like the Instagram app. I’ve used it for the past 7/8 ish years. And I see all the options on everyone’s stories such as polls, questions, countdowns, etc. and i really want to be able to do as they do but when I go to put a countdown on my story or a poll i don’t have the option to do it. I keep my app updated. I’ve made several reports I just can’t seem to have the option. I don’t know if it’s because of me being on the iPhone 6 or what..? I believe this problem should be fixed ASAP please.
IG is so good and I can post pictures of my family
I miss the old explore feed
There’s a new update & now I cannot see who viewed my instasnap after 24 hours and that’s corny. Change it back!
I really love Instagram because it is awesome to post some pictures and videos from every place I go to with my friends, Family, and with my Nicolet Cross Country Team, Boys Swim Team, and Nicolet Track and Field because it was fun Graduating from Nicolet high school for four years!👍
I love Instagram
It helped me keep in touch with my friend from Massachusetts. I love Instagram
It’s good but you will undoubtedly be spending every waking moment with your eyes affixed to your phone.
Love looking at the lastest events happening with friends and family.❤️
I would like too see more updates like what time did someone view your story but other than that I love it best app😍😍😍😍
Make a nice look, because If I want to post my whole video is not going whole is going pieces why, do a favor
insights are glitching?
usually when i go on insights, audience, follower activity, it will be on the day of the week it is currently (i look on saturday, it shows saturdays activity) but now its automatically set on a random day? (i look on saturday, it shows wednesday) im tired of scrolling through to the correct day but another problem is that friday is missing and there are TWO tuesdays in my chart please fix. i dont want to switch back to personal and back to business and lose all my post information
Awesome app, getting to showcase my photography to a larger audience has grown my photography business to heights I didn’t know were possible!
So much fun and if you post peploe comment such nice things
Create your desires
I love instagram because I can go from where I started and look through my content and see my spiritual journey right in front of me. What a beautiful tool. When used the correct way. Please don’t feel like you have to go get Botox to fit in with insta chicks. What works for them might not be for you. Use instagram to manifest your purest desires and dreams. Thanks INSTA
Instagram is like a place where you can look at cute posts and see new posts that your friends share.
I like Instagram because well you can do so many things on it, you can follow people, you can post images of you on vacation or out of person’s house. I just love it because you can do so many things it’s so amazing thank you Instagram people I don’t really know what else to say
Adoro meu insta
Hi The app still have a bug! I directed massage & picture to my friends but they didn’t have receive anything! Please be inform that, some note about directors receiving was showed on my mobail when it’s locked Br.
Please Read Instagram Team
There are not many flaws with the instagram app, overall congratulations Instagram Team! However, I think that you guys should know how random IGTV is. We should get IGTV based on topics we are searching and people we follow/saved posts. It's annoying to see a larvae IGTV in my recommended. I also dislike your use of ToonStar. Let's be honest, everybody is annoyed by these videos. You already have so much sponsoring and ad-campaigning, that it's useless to keep plugging sponsored accounts in. Thanks in advance! -Lucia Reese
I love this app but..
This app is a great app but I won’t let me delete accounts or log out of them they just stay and you can’t log out or do anything about it.
Frustrating to get the Full frames when posting multiple pics
Frustrating to get the Full frame of each pic when posting multiple pics. Should be able to expand to full frame for every pic, regardless of how they were taken. My account doesn’t link to my Facebook account anymore, instead it links to another account I created on Facebook for work. And Don’t have any choice to correct... Should have the ability to choose what Facebook account I want my Instagram linked to.
Won't let me like anything

Sad with the changes!
With the newest update, now you cannot see who has viewed your archived stories and I hate not being able to see who has viewed them. Otherwise I am for the most part happy with Instagram and the way it is managed. Please fix this!
Esta es la mejor aplicación se la recomiendo a todo el mundo 😊
Yooo I love Insta!! Favorite app
4.5 rating THIS APP IS AMAZING but I have one request
When I find a funny meme I like to dm it to many of my friends, but some of the funniest meme accounts I follow have private accounts and I can’t tell which of my friends follow them when I go to dm them the meme so maybe you guys could put like a lock next to the people that don’t follow them so I know who to send the memes too. But other than that I love this app soooo much
I would appreciate less ads please. Thank you!
Instagram, you guys gonna chill out and stop putting 3 day old post on the top of my feed.
I love Instagram I spend a lot of time on this app. You guys keep changing things making it harder for me. I have to manually refresh my explore page, and you don’t even show things I like anymore it’s annoying. What’s up with not being able to see my views after 24hrs please change that back. I like to be able to go back on a old story post and see who have viewed it.
add an option so others can’t see your tagged photo page!!!
أنا سعيد جداً

Why does it say 20 people if I haven’t texted 40 people back ???
I mean yea insta great and all and idk if its a glitch or a bug but i cant find the question thingy in stickers
No Music Sticker
I have a brand new IPhone XS Max phone but yet I still don’t have the music sticker on my Instagram account. I have signed out of the app, uninstalled the app, reinstalled it, signed back in and still nothing! It’s very irritating.
I share stuff and it gets shared.
I love it
I love yall app
jus a suggestion
i really love to use instagram and generally have no problem with it, but for a suggestion: could you make it to where you’re able to delete certain pictures out of a chain of pictures that you’ve already posted?
Issue that needs to be fixed
I adore Instagram, but lately I haven’t been able to use hashtags like I used to be able to. NO I am no using more than 30 hashtags at one time, but Instagram is no longer allowing me to switch around my hashtags and is accusing me of putting too many when I’m not putting over 30... this problem has been making me lose exposure and new people to see my account. What is the point of having Instagram if I can’t show it to new people every day?!
Ig was better without algorithms. I miss so many feeds.
So ive been using this app for a while, and the only thing that bugs me the most of the time is that i cant edit a photo once it is published. I do have an option of deleting the post, but i dont. All i want to be able to do it also edit the pic since somethings i would want to change the picture or replace the picture as well. If an update comes and says that we are now allowed to edit a picture once uploaded and replace a picture once its uploaded, i would be SO happy if it does allow that. If it does i dont want the posts to change the date when it was uploaded and not to erase the likes you have on the posts. If you can do that than THANK YOU SO MUCH.
I don’t have the music widget 🙄 can some one please tell me how i can get that... giving 3 stars bcus i want the music !!
Stop changing things
The only thing that I don’t like is that y’all keep changing things
You can do anything on this app. You can not post inappropriate pictures of your body
I Am Here
Here for the evolve of Instagram.
This is the best app
Love it! The best marketing tool ever and it’s free. Winning!
