instagram is a simple way to capture and share the world’s moments. Follow your friends and family to see what they’re up to, and discover accounts from all over the world that are sharing things you love. Join the community of over 1 billion people and express yourself by sharing all the moments of your day — the highlights and everything in between, too. Use instagram to: * Post photos and videos you want to keep on your profile grid. Edit them with filters and creative tools and combine multiple clips into one video. * Browse photos and videos from people you follow in your feed. Interact with posts you care about with likes and comments. * share multiple photos and videos (as many as you want!) to your story. Bring them to life with text, drawing tools and other creative effects. . They disappear after 24 hours and won’t appear on your profile grid or in feed. * Go live to connect with your friends in the moment. Try going live with a friend and sharing a replay to your story when you’re done. * Message your friends privately in Direct. Send them photos and videos that disappear and share content you see on instagram. * watch stories and live videos from the people you follow in a bar at the top of your feed. * Discover photos, videos and stories you might like and follow new accounts on the Explore tab.

My commenting and reply is weird
by buggalobuggalo on 2019/02/16 07:00
Whenever I post a comment or reply to one, it double post it. Why is this happening? It makes me look dumb posting the same sentence 2 to 3 times. Please look into this.
by PR Cowboy28 on 2019/02/16 06:54
Needs some repairs. I’m getting an error that keeps me from making changes on my account.
Thank you instagram
by Mr.Congratz on 2019/02/16 06:38
Instagram is such a awesome app. There are so many videos like funny, weird , cool and many others. Please follow me/Mr.Congratz/I play Fortnite so you can add me as friend/RedthunderXGamer.
Make your vids longer!!! 2 minutes thats all 😉
by Ascendedmystic on 2019/02/16 06:31
Love the improvement you guys did on the stories!!! where it doesn’t cut and just keeps recording and gets the whole thing 👏🏻the only thing that is left to make this app perfect a five for five star will be making your videos at least two minutes long.Thats all that is left if you guys make your videos two minute long that would be awesome!!! The stories to record are great!! just making the video recording two minutes long will make this app as perfect as can be cause you will be able to record a little longer that would be awesome!! don’t need it to be longer two minutes is fine!! I guarantee their would be many more happy instagramers if you do that including myself because we will be able to share more of the things we love ❤️ and the more we are able to share the happier we will be.I am one of your loyal users for years now and constantly on instagram so I know what I am talking about.Also thank you for being able to sign in with your phone number or email 🙏🏼because of that I was able to save this account where I would of been so upset if I was not able to sign in my Ig account again I have put to much work on my instagram page to lose it.

by NatyNataliaH101 on 2019/02/16 05:48
I truly enjoy using this app but many people as well as myself have been speaking about the new update. No one is fond of the “not being able to see who viewed your story after 24 hours feature”. Thank you for your time. Everyone including myself would appreciate if you changed it back.
I need help
by silly onyx on 2019/02/16 05:31
I’m trying to log back into my Instagram and it’s saying that either my account is disabled or it can’t be found. I know my account is still there. It keeps saying try again later. I even tried making a new account and it won’t let me. What’s going on?
Login issues?
by honeycocoaxoxo on 2019/02/16 05:31
If you could change the help center that would be great, giving us a way to email someone directly to help with our problems would make some situations a lot easier instead of just a FAQ help page that doesn’t really help most of the time. There’s been a huge issue with logging in, giving an error when trying to login or just loading when trying to login through Facebook. If those issue could be fixed then it’ll definitely get a 5 star
by paste0416 on 2019/02/16 05:29
i would’ve liked it better. but recently screw this it won’t let me sign in and says i violated terms of service and i have no clue on what i did.
I love it buuuuut
by SatansDonuts ✌🏼 on 2019/02/16 05:25
I would really appreciate if instagram would change back to where you can see who views your stories even after 24 hours. I’m set to a public account, of which I’d like it to say that way. But I’d like to know who views my content at all times, especially in a highlight. People that you don’t follow can view it, and there’s no way of preventing it unless you follow and then block them from viewing your content. Please change this back, I’m sure everyone agrees that there should not have been a change in this feature. 💕

Missing Instagram
by Z Karnopp on 2019/02/16 05:07
Still missing how Instagram used to have ‘instant photos’ in chronological order.
I doesnt reinstall
by l12160l on 2019/02/16 05:03
I was on YouTube getting clips to make an edit. Once I was done, I pressed on Instagram and it took me out of the app. Then, i pressed it again, and it kept taking me out of the app over and over again. So, I decided to delete the app, then I can reinstall it. But, of course nothing is happening.
by Not Your Friend Gameloft on 2019/02/16 05:02
Good good
Please make the app truly iPad compatible.
by JMo0412 on 2019/02/16 04:57
My biggest pet peeve is that using the app, I cannot use instagram in landscape mode. With more and more tablets being built to be used with keyboards, it’s hard to use an app that has to be in portrait mode all the time. Please enhance!
by notesayer on 2019/02/16 04:51
I’ve noticed some glitches on my cell phone which is the reason why I said the first sentence. For instance on one of my accounts I can’t post pictures straight from the app. I have to look in my camera roll. I also feel like it would be very beneficial to be able to add multiple pictures to a post while on my Mac book instead of having to put them on a Google drive beforeI post them on my Instagram app on my iPhone.
Plz stop T_T😭

Viewer List of Stories
by Ta17ane on 2019/02/16 04:25
Instagram, please provide the viewer list of stories after 24 hours again!!! This was one of the best updates that you’ve ever had! But now you removed that and that’s really annoying!! Please provide access to the viewers of stories after 24 hours!!
No Dark Mode
by Mikes Reviews Official on 2019/02/16 04:15
There is no dark mode. Twitter and YouTube have dark mode. Please add a dark mode so it don’t hurt my eyes scrolling though Instagram at night. Dark mode = 5 stars

It works well for its type of platform.
Story views
by 102131 on 2019/02/16 04:14

Like it a lot, but...
by 01xXAlexXx10 on 2019/02/16 04:02
So I’ve had Instagram since 2016 and I really like it...but lately it’s really been bothering me. I have an art account and I had 80 followers, but I haven’t been able to continue to grow my following because of the new algorithm. I want to make a career out of art and at first, it was growing quickly before the update because more people saw my posts. Now I am only getting 15 likes per post...Also for some reason there is a glitch that causes me to not be able to hear any audio from any video or story. Please help and see this!!
Is anyone else experiencing this?
by r.nicholle on 2019/02/16 03:56
I don’t get any notifications. They are turned on within the app but if I go to my setting on my phone, the instagram app isn’t listed there anymore...

Music in stories
by AppWhiz1 on 2019/02/16 03:47
I’ve been messaging you since October that I do not have the music option on my story. I have installed and reinstalled the app multiple of times. Why wouldn’t everyone have the same options?
by iona grace on 2019/02/16 03:43
I’m thankful for Instagram I think it’s a good app and stuff but Instagram I’ve been thinking if there’s a possible way that I can take a 30 day break or a year off of Instagram cause it’s addicting and I need to focus on school work I think you guys should update it like where people can take a break how much days they want and when they try to log in it doesn’t let them till there break is done. 😊
How Instagram Did Not Help Me🖕🏼
by kajdhrbjnsixbr on 2019/02/16 03:40
My Instagram got hacked and I got logged out of my account. While I spent 4 days trying to get help from Instagram, they were of no help and did not help me fix my problem whatsoever. I sent 9 emails in 4 days and I never got the help I requested. Maybe if they had a phone number to call, my situation could have been fixed sooner. I spent each day crying because my hacker was sending embarrassing, inappropriate direct messages to random people and I couldn’t do anything about it but hope Instagram would answer my email. So thanks to Instagram for all of the tears and no questions answered. This has been the most embarrassing and emotional thing I’ve experienced with social media.

by kflinn718 on 2019/02/16 03:06
I have been a loyal, regular user of Instagram since 2011. All I want is to be able to add a post to my story. It has taken months for me to get all the story features. Why can’t you just give everyone everything? It doesn’t make sense.
Why can’t I log out or add new accounts?
by arieannah on 2019/02/16 03:01
For a couple of months I’ve been trying to delete an old account that I don’t use anymore and Instagram won’t let me. I’ve been trying for about 4 months and it still doesn’t work. In addition, I tried to make a new account on Instagram and it won’t add it. I only have three account on Instagram and it still won’t let me make another account.
App won’t work
by Industrualab on 2019/02/16 02:58
For whatever reason my app won’t let me see “Your Activity” and I also cannot add music to my stories. Im not sure why, I’ve tried everything including deleting and redownloading. Even contacted Instagram Customer Support. No answer.

by Maherd on 2019/02/16 02:42
What happened to the “Translation” facility? Since the last update there’s no translation available for foreign posts. Some of my favorites are in other countries but now I can’t read what their post says!
Instagram doesn’t know how to fix all there problems.
by instagramcantfixnothing on 2019/02/16 02:35
The Instagram app is not letting any of my account log in! And there’s no way to fix it. This is stupid. This happened to a friend a while ago and she had to get a new phone.

by Cpunky84 on 2019/02/16 02:22
Lately I am having a problem with instagram. People followed me and I went to follow them back. When I clicked follow. Then I refresh the page..all of sudden it went back to “follow” it never accepts my request. I tried it again, refresh the page. Again I had to follow them again. I signed out and delete this app then re-downloading the app. I clicked follow. Refresh my page. Still having this problem. Can u please fix this?

Story views
by Disney_lob on 2019/02/16 02:19
I legit love Instagram but when I’m not posting, I’m uploading stories. Sometimes you don’t get to check them throughout the day so you’d check with no probs the views the next day. It is highly annoying that it is not allowing us to do so, like why aren’t the views available after 24 hours? What’s the point? Please put it like it was and let us check our views whenever we want, I sincerely don’t understand why you would want to limit that
Enough with “Suggestions”!!!
by gsr852 on 2019/02/16 02:17
I’m ok with providing suggestions based upon who I follow BUT, if I “x” out your suggestions, I don’t want to see the same ones appear again, and again.
This is so stupid
by bishlasagna on 2019/02/16 02:16
It won’t let me sign into my account through the app. But on the website and on my other devices it will. I have had the worst day and this just put me over the edge and made me cry. I do not recommend this trash.

So many ads
by mmmmmsmk on 2019/02/16 01:57
So, so many ads. I jumped Facebook’s ship in part for the targeted ads, and now I’m contemplating leaving Instagram for the same reason. I’ve been an Instagram user for years, but an ad every five pictures is too much. I can’t imagine that Instagram will scale this back or be responsive to this kind of criticism; I see this only escalating.
please read this!!
by wvpkathleen on 2019/02/16 01:55
to be honest, this app is amazing and it’s really good to use for social communication and ect. but you should get rid of the remember thingy whenever you would sign out of an account. it’s getting really annoying because i don’t know how to get rid of remember accounts that i have so please do something about this.
by HappyTrain72 on 2019/02/16 01:53
I don’t have any of the stickers you guys added to your app. Like the poll thing and the one where people can text you stuff and you can upload it on your story. It’s not there!!!! Idk I haven’t ever had it when it first came out and I still don’t and I’m honestly really upset, please fix this I want al line features that everyone else has. It’s so unfair, and I don’t wanna make another account cause like I have a lot of followers. Please Instagram fix this :(.
by Sarafina:) on 2019/02/16 01:51
so sometimes I make a new account, like new spam accounts or sometimes I will make accounts with my friends and then we discontinue it a couple months later. Right? Well every time I try to log out of that account and only have my main account (@sj_pyers just for clout) it will stay with my account forever. And then I delete Instagram and only log into my main account..the other account will appear back up and say “you’re logged in here too!” ITS SO ANNOYING there should be an easy way to just delete the account!! You should be able to go to settings, (it would be password protected) and be able to delete that account!! Please fix this, thank you.
Muy mal!!

I am getting agitated with the way that Instagram allows you into accounts. Trying to figure out my password and it’s just allowing me back in with my phone number and I can’t reset my password and I need to. Trying to delete account and manage them is difficult with the way that changing passwords and getting into accounts being so confusing. When I’m trying to delete an account, I don’t need to he asked if I’m sure 10 times.

Oml gets on my nerves😤🙄
by Tiggerpoo01 on 2019/02/16 00:56
Instagram is great on its own but little things get on my last nerve. So I love to edit things and put emojis on pictures I take, and post them to my story or just post them in general, but with the feature where you can move the actual photo it’s self, is so annoying. I try to put emojis on photos with borders around them but when I try to move the emoji itself I end up moving the photo and make it so that everything isn’t lined up the way I want it. Please please please Instagram take this feature away of fix it somehow. I think it would really help us editors and people who want to add things like that to their photos. Mk bye

by Peterteyez_arts on 2019/02/15 23:55
The app is great. I love it, but I had an issue recently. My page was disabled for breaking rules that I never broke. So I tried to file a claim to them through their “learn more” link and no one got back to me and I never got my account back. I tried to communicate with them by doing that several times, commenting on their posts, mentioning them in my story, by twitter, and email. The only one I got an answer from was the email, and it told me to go to their “learn more” page and I was back at square one. So whatever you want to call it, customer support, help page, support, it’s absolute garbage and I still don’t have my account back. My disabled Instagram account was Peterteyez_arts just Incase any Instagram people see this.
the same as the other 3million reviews.
by Displeased customer 123 on 2018/02/28 03:18
Instagram, please listen to your users. I have had and been loyal to instagram for over 4 years now. Heck, I was here when instagram was still blue and brown. instagram used to be a great app. Please stop changing the algorithm to benefit advertisers. Also, the new explore page algorithm is incredibly hard to navigate and does not change to fit my taste. I have spent hours being active on accounts I like and selecting “don’t show me more like this” and have seen absolutely no change in my explore page. On top of that, explore is now way more clustered than before. As a creator on the app I understand how crucial algorithm is and do not appreciate being shoved to the bottom of my followers feeds under all the advertisements. I have also noticed an alarming amount of the advertisements I see are scams. The fact that turning on post notifications is practically necessary to keep updated on my favorite accounts is ridiculous and is killing traffic to many accounts causing them to die out. This means less users on your app. Even if not directly affected, when users have a hard time navigating the app they are bound to be less active. The app is becoming more and more like facebook. I have started to use instagram less and less for the reasons I no longer use facebook. I am just one of thousands of reviews all saying similar things. Please make changes if you care about your users and user experience.
Love the app but needs some fixing
by Mia Morano on 2018/12/27 23:31
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

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.
Needs some work
by SireCuckith on 2018/08/05 03:08
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???
Instagram as a Whole: Changed beyond Use
by abop555 on 2018/12/27 15:46
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.
Email confirmation
by Hannah J0 on 2019/01/02 22:56
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
by _illest.a on 2018/03/09 23:40
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!❤️
Still some kinks to work out
by MxPxL on 2018/06/27 17:15
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. 😬
Fix the feed
by Cinnamon5000 on 2018/02/11 13:29
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.
Love multiple photos! One idea?
by KerryRyann on 2018/12/04 05:13
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
by L.l.h.a. on 2018/08/13 02:39
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?
by Julio Jovani Santos Jr. III on 2018/03/06 21:08
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!!!
Still No iPad App
by OrdinaryChris on 2017/11/06 15:20
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
by Kory E. battershell on 2018/10/14 00:39
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
by Timelord7 on 2018/10/10 11:31
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.
Some issues with tagging people and notifications
by SlightlyDisappointedDownloader on 2018/08/17 19:08
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
by _Jacob_Likes_Food_ on 2018/02/04 19:07
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
by isabellatriesart on 2018/05/12 06:02
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
by Sstephhhhhx on 2019/02/10 00:47
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 miss the old format
by NikaPants on 2018/02/23 18:49
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!
Can’t get through app
by ReviewMotherSafeMom on 2019/01/10 22:29
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!
by G. Anne J. on 2018/06/12 07:35
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.
Deleted Mh Account For Absolutely No Reason
by Confused Game Player on 2018/04/18 04:30
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.
Still good, not great (iPhone X)
by vlpage on 2017/11/10 15:27
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
Is instagram deleting people for doing nothing?
by lit_lana on 2019/02/06 03:05
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.
Great app, feed flaws.
by Te rates on 2018/07/26 15:52
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?
by KelliConan on 2018/03/10 00:11
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.
by Raw.Deen on 2018/01/25 18:49
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 on 2018/01/20 03:38
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 on 2018/01/31 16:03
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!
Needs Some Improvement
by 🌼Caitlyn🌼 on 2018/12/21 16:07
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.
by falloutjane on 2018/01/20 06:06
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!
by --wolfg1rl-- on 2018/06/10 04:41
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
by Aperralll on 2017/12/17 05:24
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
by uzer001098876 on 2019/01/02 02:34
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 needs a customer service number” SECURITY & SAFTEY OF PERSONAL LIVES !
by _Lil JAJA_ on 2019/01/18 01:31
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
Not pleased
by M3owMix(-: on 2018/10/04 23:11
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.
Insta doesn’t work on my phone anymore
by IlexiLula on 2019/02/06 21:21
I’ve had insta for over a year now, not as long as everyone else but I’ve had it for a long time. I have three accounts, all business, one for writing, one for makeup, and one for my photography. I cannot log into any one of them on my phone without there being some type of “error” I have tried for weeks. WEEKS. I can log in on my browser, but then I can’t dm people. I can log in on a friends phone, but that’s NOT MY PHONE! I have deleted and reinstalled this app dozens of times. I’ve contacted you guys DOZENS of times. I’m not getting a response and I’m getting no help. I have posted hundreds of things, promoted some of my music, posted hundreds and hundreds of photos that I am PROUD of. I can’t just delete these accounts as if they’ve never existed and replace it on Facebook. I’ve even tried making an entirely new account on my phone, just so I could log in and tell my followers what’s going on, and it will be INSTANTLY blocked saying that it “doesn’t fit into your guidelines” and “there is an error with this account”. I don’t possibly know what’s going on but it is ridiculous, especially because I know I’m not the only person this is happening to. Fix it. ASAP. Screw your stupid updates that change the algorithm. Allow your users to log in again, or you’ll become as useless as MySpace and will lose all your users and the work you’ve put into this app.
I cannot recommend this app
by Gooey penguin30053 on 2018/12/28 20:20
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.
Fix in update
by Megan3133 on 2017/12/20 13:05
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?
by kevcheeze75 on 2017/11/28 21:09
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
Honestly this is getting annoying
by Rae Knight on 2018/07/26 22:49
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.
instagram editors
by editingaverg on 2018/08/21 13:23
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 on 2017/12/13 11:06
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.
Feedback and suggestions improvements
by a non-basic teen on 2019/02/10 21:56
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
by Xjohnny2000 on 2018/12/07 09:03
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.
by buddy Walrus on 2018/08/13 17:49
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
by The name is Bella on 2019/01/21 06:24
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!
