I don't understand why you need to go and mess around with a good thing... If it's not broke, don't fix it! Instagram seemed to be working just fine before, but then they went and screwed it up. And from the sounds of it, the change has ruffled quite a few feathers and less and less folks are using the platform now - which is quite the bummer!
Don't you think I'm intelligent enough to follow the accounts I want to see?! I mean, if I like an account, I want to see their stuff. If I don't like an account, I won't follow it. Why is it that you think your crazy equation is smarter than me?!
I'd LOVE it if we could go back to the chronological order that we had before. Or at least give us, the users, the option to decide how we want to have our timeline's organized (whether that's by what IG 'thinks' is best or how we choose)!
Now, I am in no way trying to toot my own horn, but I have a decent following on Instagram. With that said, I feel like less and less of my friends are actually seeing my content which is pretty LAMESAUCE if you ask me! And not only do I care that you aren't seeing my posts, but I am EXTRA bummed because I am missing out on some of yours!
I know, I know, no one likes change... But I don't think I dislike this update only for change sake... I dislike it because it is CRAPTASTIC! I spend more time having to go back and search for friends' profiles and see which images I missed than anything I am gaining with the new "organization". Give us back our previous timelines (and while you are at it, you might as well switch the logo back because it is a little too girly for my liking ;)).
What I really don't understand is why Instagram made the change in the first place. Is it so that they can sneak in more ads and sponsored posts without us noticing? Why not do what Twitter does and have a mini section of "What you may have missed..." and show some of the posts from users you frequently interact with? Or why not have a "Suggested" tab if they want to offer you ideas of accounts or hashtags you "should be" following? Why not let us pick?
Oh well, #FirstWorldProblems. And with that I am done
whining voicing my opinion... I just wish that the next time my favorite social media platform decides to do a big overhaul that they ask my thoughts first :) Please and Thank You!
Have you noticed a change in your Instagram engagement?
