Instagram for Negative User Reviews

Is it time to say goodbye?I have always been the hugest Instagram fan, a photo sharing app turned viral and became an essential for our generation! For years Instagram was updated but the core values and aspects of the app remained the same. Now we are forced to look at an interface that is confusing and unpleasant for the eye. The addition of stories was nice, the addition of reels was unnecessary but we lived with it. Now it is changing how our own feeds are presented and the addition of a shopping focused update. Myself along with other millions of users downloaded this app to socialise and share moments in our lives. Not shopping. The notifications and posting tabs have now been moved to an insignificant location, in their place is the video and shopping tabs. The core focus of Instagram has been lost, we are all more than happy to view ads to maintain a free application and cover costs but this is taking it too far. Instagram for many young people is the first early glimpse of social media, now they are instantly attacked with shopping items instead of the same simple and enjoyable experience shared by many in recent years. Sadly this is goodbye to our beloved Instagram..Version: 167.0

IMMEDIATE ATTENTION NEEDEDI have been using Instagram for many years now and haven’t had a problem. 3 days ago I noticed my Direct messages were playing up but I thought that was just my phone having trouble with the wifi. Then that same day at night my direct messages have disappeared. I receive all the notifications but I can not see them in the app it’s self. Today is the 4th day this has been going on and I have reported a problem several times and it seems like they haven’t been taken to notice. This is very frustrating because I use Instagram as an escape and basically therapy for myself. I contact family from overseas and now I can’t due to the bug ONLY MY ACCOUNT HAS. I’ve got 2 accounts one is my private account where the direct messages work perfectly fine. I NEED THIS FIXED as tomorrow is an important day and I need to contact people from overseas. This needs to be fixed literally now as it is so ignorant of the Instagram team not taking my reports to notice :( I will be fixing the star ratings up after my problems a fixed..Version: 117.0

Can’t see number of likesApparently the new update has made it so only you can see how many likes your photo has, and you can’t see how many likes others pictures have. WORST UPDATE EVER. What’s the point? it’s making things much more confusing. there’s reasons why the number of likes is important. CHANGE THIS BACK AND STOP MAKING INCONVENIENT UPDATES.Version: 91.0

Awful New UpdateI really, really dislike the new update and it’s honestly making me consider deleting Instagram. This not something I’d say lightly as I have 3 separate Instagram accounts and have had the app since 2012. The main issue is that the features that everyone tends to use the most have been crammed into a hard to find corner. The likes/comments/follow requests section and the add new post button need to go back on the easy to access bar at the bottom of the screen. It is ridiculous that an app made for sharing photos should replace an add photo button with an endless stream of random videos (reels) just because developers feel like they need to compete with apps like Tiktok. The shopping section is just as unnecessary to have on the bar at the bottom as this feature is going to be used far, far less than the add new post button, the likes/comments/follow requests section or even the direct messages section because as I’ve said Instagram is an app used for sharing photos. Instagram is at serious risk of being just as complicated, difficult to navigate and overcrowded as Facebook; Instagram’s simplicity and singular purpose (photo sharing) was what attracted people to the app in the first place. Please, please, please fix this asap- I want to enjoy using Instagram again..Version: 167.0

New updatePlease bring likes back.Version: 91.0

Disgusting! Instagram is censoring content while promoting violent content from other creators!I still can not comment on posts, tag anyone, or post content with captions on my page. I find it ridiculous that Instagram is leaving antisemitic posts up, but they are silencing pro Israel and Jewish creators and content. It is very clear where they stand. I am requesting that my account be relieved of any restrictions immediately. My content is not dangerous, my content is clean honest content condemning Antisemitism and posting the truth of what is happening in Israel from a person who actually lives there. There is no reason to remove any of my content or restrict my account. I receive death threats on a daily basis from pro Palestine accounts with millions of followers, and Instagram does nothing when I report it. I receive antisemitic comments on my posts and Instagram does nothing when I report it. Any time I report situations like these, I receive a message that states, “Instagram has a high volume of posts and is not able to look at your request”. Then why do they have the option to report harmful content if they “don’t have time to look at the reports”. They were able to find time to censor and restrict my account for no reason and with no notice! So it’s obvious that they pick and choose what and who to report. I am not the only Jewish/Israeli content creator that Instagram is silencing. It’s disgusting and it has to stop!.Version: 192.0

Help pleaseIt was working fine yesterday but today nothing was loading... so after an hour of trying everything to fix it I deleted the app and re-downloaded it but now it won’t even let me log in! I know it is not the wifi because the wifi is working for everything else and I tried the wifi at a friends house and it still won’t work.Version: 84.0

You messed up InstaEverything was fine in the beginning. But now the app is FILLED with bugs. I go to open insta and all of a sudden I have the old layout. No more reels button, that’s where the post button is now. And I’ll go and open and close the app to see if it helps but it stays the same, but when I go to another account it still has all of the new features. Also, there is an audio bug to where if my phone closes for a sec and I reopen it, the sound of the post it closed on will play over everything. Even if I scroll and play a new video, it plays over it. If I go to close the app, it’ll STILL play even tho it’s not suppose to (and I have background interactions blocked on my phone) Also, the “you’ve reached the end of all recent posts, so here’s some from yo suggested feed!” Has got to stop. I follow those people for a reason. You don’t even SHOW every post the people I follow make. You only post the most recent ones, as in within about 7 hours, then take away all that and put your own stuff. I have a suggested feed and a following feed for a reason, there was no need to combine the two and I literally missed the fact that I’m an UNCLE because the post was made more than a day ago since I was last on, and didn’t find out until two weeks later when they made a post on their story about my nephew. You keep digging yourself in a hole insta, stop putting new things in and just fix what’s already here. There’s enough that’s broken, don’t put more.Version: 200.1

New updateThis update didn't do anything. My Instagram stopped working after the sept.5 update and still not working. Like what do bug fixes and improvement do. They should do something not be pointless. You really need to fix this and get Instagram back to normal.Version: 14.0

Bring back following activity !I love using instagram, but in the new update we can no longer view what people we follow like. i use this feature just as much as i use the app, it’s a good way for me to check in on my friends and see what they’ve been enjoying online. please bring this feature back! i know i will not be using the app anywhere near as much now that this feature has been removed..Version: 114.0

Increasingly authoritarian censoring kills all the funI pretty much use this app cause I don’t have many other choices to stay connected to my community/friends in the same way. But it seems more & more IG is becoming this gross controlled space that promotes consumerism and brands instead of users. Lots of my mates have been censored or had their accounts taken down for stuff like having an onlyfans link, posting picture of a themselves as a fat woman wearing a bikini, writing in support of BLM and stuff like that - Meanwhile, celebrities can post them self in a thong and pornhub can have an account to promote their content without consequence. Shadowbanning and no longer arranging posts by chronology (always filtering out my real friends posts!) kills the ‘social’ element of the app and emphasises an uncomfortable fakeness. I feel begrudged every time I get sucked into logging on a platform that increasingly lacks freedom..Version: 169.0

I have questionsIt would be 100x better without visible likes. And another 100x better if my post showed up in my followers feeds in the order it was posted. It’s not right that I put in so much effort and time, and people who intentionally followed me don’t see my post right away unless they are actively searching for my posts on a regular basis. Choosing to follow an account should be enough, why should I have to go out of my way to like and comment on their posts in order to keep seeing their posts higher up in my feed? Just because I don’t like posts by old high school friends who don’t know how to use a camera doesn’t mean I don’t want to see their photos, doesn’t that make sense? And if I have 3000 followers, I would expect at least 2000 of them to see my post. Why is it that only 500 or less of them see my post? Over time, I have posted better content, and I’ve posted more consistently, I try to post to my story regularly, I try interacting with followers, why is it that my engagement has steadily declined? Update: I’ve spent 10+ years on this app, posting high quality content, using the new features, and Instagram still treats my account like it’s worthless. I see garbage accounts get blasted with attention and gain thousands of followers, meanwhile, I’ve barely scraped by. And now people are getting paid by Instagram to create reels, and I’ve been posting reels, and Instagram won’t even roll out that feature to me? Unreal..Version: 224.1

APP GLITCH HELP‼️‼️fix ASAPEvery month or so i get a notification about my account being compromised and instagram thinking i am using an application to buy likes and followers, however i’ve never given my password out to any apps like that and even when it asks me to change my password and i do i still get another notification telling me my new password was also given out by me which it wasn’t. Each time this happens it blocks me from following, liking and commenting for about a week. This time when it happened it told me my expiry date for the block was the 6th of October but it’s the 7th now and i still haven’t been unblocked. please fix this!! i’ve reported the problem many times but it hasn’t gotten any attention. Recently i’ve actually been losing more followers than gaining so it isn’t even possible for me to be buying more. I’ve tried uninstalling and reinstalling the app , logging in and out and even just restarting my phone..Version: 162.0

ReviewI would like to see what my followers like so that I can see maybe I’ll go like it to. I just dislike how this version is it’s not great and pardon my words but it’s S**t.....Version: 114.0

Annoying issueInstagram is a great app to use on your free time and to connect with other people. This is why I was really interested in using Instagram to try and help out my barber career. The one annoying issue I’m having is when it comes to trying to add an action button for booking. I have tried this with three different booking apps so far and with no luck. For example I am trying to add my square appointments app as a book option on my business account. The videos I have seen about how to do this, show that once you click on the app you use to schedule your clients, you need to enter in the URL that will link them to your booking page. I believe this is where the problem is. Instagram doesn’t give me an option to enter a URL. The order that Instagram sends me is ( connect website > please select business to connect > connect to Instagram > connection successful). Then when I refresh my page there is no action button. I have used three different booking apps in hopes that one of them would work and none of them do. I have the online booking option turned on within the app as well and it still doesn’t work. It’s extremely frustrating and to add onto it, I can’t find anywhere online to help me. There’s no way to contact Instagram, at least from what I have seen and it feels like it’s never going to work for me. This app could easily be a 5 star, but this one problem is really making it hard..Version: 148.0

Pro-zionist, pro-genocideThis app is hindering the freedom of speech it claims to work hard to protect by hindering and restricting all pro-Palestine content. FREE PALESTINE UNTIL PALESTINE IS FREE 🇵🇸❤️.Version: 187.0

Terrible Customer supportand dictate the platform unfairlyI have a business account with a fairly large following but it seems like a constant struggle to keep it alive. Instagram unfairly dictates what they want you to post and to “shadow ban” you when ever they want without reason. I re-shared a post of clearly plastic toy rocket launcher that fires air... and it was taken down for breaking community guidelines... there was no clear way of appealing this and when we did finally get a response from customer support they asked for the same questions that I typed in my initial appeal and haven’t heard back since just awful! This removal of our post resulted in a 2 week ban where we went from reaching 200k a day to barley 10k if we were lucky. They have really damaged the account for no reason at all. The most annoying thing is that I have seen this re-shared post on many other pages but was it removed there? No it wasn’t. Was it removed on the original page? No it wasn’t. But I see other pages like mine (3D printing related content) posting real looking guns and knifes without any consequences at all? How is this fair, it’s disgusting how these platforms work and needs sorting out.Version: 154.0

Unfortunate reviewInstagram is literally my one & only app I use faithfully but it’s starting to come crashing down. Reasons being: 1) instagram always crashes unexpectedly although my phone is up to date with everything, 2) Ive given permission to access my gallery so I can save memories i’ve made using the instagrams story tool yet I cannot seem to save ANYTHING... i’ve tried many hacks and the only way i’m able to do so is if I delete the whole app and re-download it again ( i shouldn’t even have to do this if i’ve given permission in the first place, totally time consuming) this has happened more than once 3) The updates are becoming ridiculous I hope instagram fixes it’s bugs and goes back to the more simple way of instagram.Version: 170.0

DecayingAll Instagram knows how to do is add unnecessary & complicated features and not listen to its users. The existence of the shopping tab is ridiculous, putting business first and interaction with your own page (which you’d think would be an important part about Instagram) second. It’s a photo sharing app, not a marketplace, and it was better when the shopping was only available through going to a shop’s page or picture from the explore. That was accessible enough. There are already enough ads as it is. A whole tab for it is absolutely unneeded, and should be replaced again with the activity tab. Yesterday, for the first time in a while, they added a good feature, one I’d been wanting for a long time; the ability to search your chats for specific keywords. I was very pleased with that, but of course, when I updated the app today it disappeared. Not to mention the homophobia, sexism, racism, fatphobia, and general bullying allowed on there (which reporting never helps). I’ve been using the app consistently for the past 10 years and it just gets more and more disappointing. Oh, and also, it would be nice not to have the quality of photos and videos ruined when uploaded..Version: 222.0

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

There’s a slight issueUp until yesterday my Instagram was doing fine but today it’s really been acting up, I don’t know if it’s just me but my friend also says that she has experienced this problem. Basically, to summarise the issue, it won’t let me check my friends profiles or meme pages as apparently I have “no internet.” Now this would be fine if I seriously didn’t have any internet, but I did and nothing was wrong with it since I could use all the other apps that required WiFi. Due to this little problem I’m unable to see certain stories, certain profiles and I’m unable to use stickers or GIF’s during conversation. Please fix this issue because it’s quite irritating as everything is perfectly fine but Instagram says otherwise, either saying I have no connection (which I do) or says that something went wrong even though nothing wrong could’ve happened. Other then this issue however, it is a great app, you can socialise to any of your friends who has it, it’s great, you can keep up to date with anyone you want and it’s an overall great experience. My only issue was the problem that I mentioned at the start. But overall I recommend getting it.Version: 141.0

Explore is terribleMy explore is not showing me posts I want to see. Instead of the pole fitness and exotic dance that is my passion and 90% of what I interact with, I’m seeing posts of hair, makeup and other boring stuff (that I barely interact with). I’m sick to death of the wrongful censorship of pole dancers, and sick of not seeing the posts I want to see because Instagram’s rules are so vague and not equally applied, don’t get me started on the shadowbanning! Whats needed are CLEAR rules, equally applied, and possibly a phone assistance line for clarification so that these poor women (many of whom using this platform to assist their career) don’t feel like they’re treading on eggshells with every post, never sure if their account is about to be deleted. Some people work HARD on their accounts, on beautiful photography, dance and art that is deemed ‘against community guidelines’ and deleted. You are wrongly silencing art, freedom and self-love. I’m especially disgusted by the sexism - seems fine for men to post sexually suggestive photos of women but god forbid she take it in her own hands to love and appreciate herself! It’s atrocious and manipulative and you’re not fooling anyone. People are going to wake up and stop using this platform if this doesn’t improve soon..Version: 121.1

Banned minority protester hashtagsSided with Sri Lankan government in their mistreatment of Tamils by banning hashtags related to Tamils.Version: 174.0

Terrible test/updateSo quick to change something that was not broken but never want to fix the actual problems. If people are so insecure that seeing other people’s likes hurt them or puts a lot of pressure on them to post better contents, then add an option for them to turn it off..Version: 91.0

LOG OUT BUTTON PLEASE!!Can you make an extra tab where we can see things in chronological order as well as whatever the current order is? Also, I heard a rumour that you might be changing it to 4 squares instead of 3 on our feeds... if that is the case, I will be deleting the app as I pride myself on my feed and I love the way my profile looks with all my posts together. However, they will only look good in a 3x3 style, not 4x4. So I'm really really hoping that this is not going to be happening. However, no matter how much bad feedback you get, and how many people hate on you for it, I doubt you'll listen, because you didn't when everyone said not to change our timeline order. So I guess I'll be deleting. Awesome..Version: 15.0

Constantly CrashesApp works after fresh download,then crashes and will not load until you redownload it.sent a couple reports in,nothing but crickets..Version: 14.0

HATE the New LayoutI've been using instagram since 2012, and I used to love the platform so much. However recent changes in the functionality of the app have been making me consider fully deleting my account. First the algorithm was changed from seeing most recent posts first to posts you interact with most, which makes it so you don't see over half of the content from creators you're following and your followers don't see your posts. Then this new update replaced the notification and post tabs with reels and shop, which seriously effects it's usability. Now my notifications and post buttons are in an awkward hard to reach spot, instead of being easily accessible. Everyone I've asked have agreed that this new update is terrible, and that NO ONE cares or asked to have a whole shopping section on a photo sharing platform. This update feels like Instagram is desperately trying to pull users from other apps like TikTok and Pinterest instead of focusing on its own user base and their wants. I am so incredibly disappointed in Instagram's team for consistently refusing to acknowledge their user's concerns. If this update isn't reversed and/or if more terribly inconvenient updates are released, I'm definitely going to be leaving the platform. Furthermore, try implementing useful updates such as being able to reorder or remove photos from old posts. I think such feature would resonate well. Please, just listen to your user base for once..Version: 174.0

Was my favorite app, but starting to dislike itThere is just so much commotion going on in this app its becoming sensory overload. Stop suggesting posts to me of the same bot accounts that post "satisfying" content and using the same abcdefu song every 3 videos. I click "not interested" and it really doesn't do anything but keep showing me the same content. I hope that the algorithm becomes better because it seems even though you hide likes and views, the only posts that get shown are the ones with a lot of interaction going on. I have 1k followers, and I get like 5 likes because my posts don't show up in the feed for majority of my followers. Please go back to chronological order rather than by whats trending, thats what the explore page is for. That goes for feed and for comment sections. I like to read comments, and comment myself, but the comments with the most likes get put first, or someone with a blue check, and it is randomized other than that. Youll see a comment from 3 weeks ago, and then scroll all the way down to see comments 3 minutes ago. Also, if i get a response to my comment in a thread, i can either click "view new comments" and it wont let me view all the previous, or vice versa. i have to manually go to the page and post and find my comment all the way in the messed up comment section to read all of the thread in order..Version: 218.0

BRING BACK THE LIKES IN CANADAThis new experimental update bs in canada is trashhhhh. nobody likes it, wants nor wanted or asked for it!! it’s useless and we can’t even how many likes celebrities got or our friends like what is really the mf point?! AT LEASTTT have it as an option for whoever wants their likes hidden can hide it but the majority DO NOT! FIX IT. don’t be like snapchat were they add useless updates no one asked for 👎🏽👎🏽👎🏽..Version: 94.0

No iPad Support, Activity Tab moved, and other issues...Edit: PLEASE keep drafts saved indefinitely! Why do the drafts just disappear whenever they feel like it? I understand that you want to have this shopping tab, and that while I personally will never ever use it, some people might(I guess???), I still need that activity tab at the bottom too! Having to go to the home page then tap the heart at the top of the screen is just really rubbish. Facebook has 6 tabs at the bottom, so clearly there is enough space for a 6th tab in Instagram too. I also really need an option to turn off the double tap to change account. It’s making going back to my profile slower, which makes me instinctively tap again, which now makes me switch accounts! I did not want to do that! Not to mention, I have three accounts, and the double tap feature only switches between the two most recent ones, so it’s completely useless for me anyway! Also, we’re about to go in to 2021 and iPad is STILL not supported?! You’re such a big company, surely there’s no reason you can’t support it! Really not loving the app as much as I usually do, ngl Oh, one more thing - please just move reels into the explore tab and move the create post button back to the bottom, pleeeeeaaaaase! Thanks.Version: 190.0

Instagram music issueI have had troubles with the music feature on instagram for MONTHS now. I am not able to use any music other than the few automatically shown ones that are there when I click the option, and all the songs are in some foreign language or they're instrumentals of some sort. I am not able to search for any song whatsoever as it will just tell me there are no results every time. A couple months ago, i was still at least able to save a song if someone sent it to me, then go to saved music, and use it through that. But now the problem has worsened and I am not even able to save any music nor see/use any of the music i had saved before this was an issue. I have reported this problem to instagram multiple times over the course of about 5 or 6 months and they have yet to respond in any sort of way, let alone fix the problem. I know i'm not the only one dealing with this as i've seen in reviews, as well as on other social medias such as twitter, that there have been a good amount of other people dealing with the same issues. This problem has been aggravating and upsetting, and the fact that i and many others have tried to reach instagram to fix this issue, yet have not even been addressed, only adds to those emotions. The music was one of, if not THE most used feature for me on instagram. I have tried multiple methods on my own to resolve this issue but nothing has worked. Hoping instagram can get to the bottom of this sooner rather than later.Version: 226.0

Photo Quality and Time.I’m not a huge fan of social media, however, Instagram is the one app I prefer using for my artwork aside from Tumblr. The photo upload quality both on the Instagram stories and posts could definitely use some work, though. It’s horrible and ruins the look of my art, which is particularly irritating regarding detail shots and the like. Pictures turn out quite grainy and just very unpleasant to look at; almost as though I didn’t detail it at all, which is really quite upsetting honestly. Especially when you spend so many hours on something and you’re very proud of it, wanting to show off all the details you put into it. Another pet peeve is how Instagram is extremely demanding of your time. Not everyone likes to or can be active online so much, and it seems purposely designed (obviously) to make sure you log in and post everyday; otherwise your views and page visits go down. I don’t often finish a lot of my art in one day, it can take days or weeks and I struggle to get it seen when I post it as well; probably because of whatever algorithm you guys are using. Please take into consideration the people who can’t be online all day everyday and make some compromises. But, most of all, please fix the photo quality. I’m not the only one complaining about it..Version: 82.0

ATTENTION FANPAGESDon’t get me wrong... instagram is a great platform for everyone. especially to share your passion or what you up to with others. i owned a fan page on instagram with 59K. i’ve been working hard since 2015. recently i heard from my fandom that instagram were deleting instagram pages for “impersonating”. their is a humongous difference between impersonating and supporting. their 2 completely different subjects. my fan page was shut down (even after clearly stating that i’m not the real person and tagging my idol below) they still decided to take down my account for “impersonating a celebrity”. my point is that instagram needs to go through more rougher procedures instead of just shutting down accounts with their bots. it’s not fair that this is happening to us. without instagram fan pages it would just be boring and simply plain. their going to lose a lot more users if they don’t sort this out sooner. remember... if you are a fan page on instagram, clearly state that you are not the person and DO NOT have the same profile picture as your idol or their is a big chance your fan page is on its last legs..Version: 88.0

Good app with too many flawsInstagram is perhaps the application I use the most, and I really enjoy it when it’s at its best. However, the flaws are simply overwhelming at times. I’m writing this review because my account has been wrongfully shadow-banned and action blocked over 6 times now without an actual just cause for it. Every time, it says I was allegedly “sharing my account with a service that helps me get more likes and followers” even though that’s blatantly untrue. I have 0 posts, 0 likes and well under 1000 followers. I have written 4 detailed reports explaining my situation but it has been to no avail. Every time this happens, I’m forced to change my password, I’m logged out of my account and then I’m action blocked for an entire week. Every time I try to like or comment, it gives me the option to report it if I believe they have made a mistake but nothing works. My account is never checked, my week long action blocks are never reduced or lifted, my reports are never acknowledged and I’m always getting wronged. I also really dislike the fact that I cannot easily contact anyone from Instagram to help me with issues like these, I can only leave long, written reports for you to ignore and do nothing about. Please revise your algorithms and consider having a Tech Support line with human responders for unique and recurring problems like this one..Version: 159.0

Since Facebook took over I.G.Just wanted to mention to those who are are concerned , that I stopped using Facebook because of the obtrusive nature of Facebook in the use of my data and exploiting it for purposes that I have not agreed to, nor would I... Instagram seemed like an option that was a platform made for users that enjoyed and appreciated each other’s photos and small bits of commentary versus Facebook‘s rabid feedback loop of everyone including strangers who would be able to comment, and so often disparagingly so, on your content. Instagram at the time, seemed like a mountain lake of peaceful interaction versus the stormy seas that Facebook and it’s deluge of content and ads had become. When I started using Instagram there were no ads pushed onto my feed… Now there are and not just a few, but regularly inserted into my stream that I follow. Some of these ads have products which according to the reviews, could be from companies that are less than reputable… So already it’s begun..Facebook in it’s march to monetize all aspects that it touches is now slowly but surely souring The Instagram platform with it ads and I’m sure eventually with other products that will supplant what Instagram originally was to be about… I will use it until I tire of this which could be sooner than later… We shall see..Version: 142.0

TerribleThis new update is abhorrent. Instagram doesn’t have to do anything to their UI because it functions exactly the way it’s supposed to and yet they replaced notifications with a SHOPPING tab. What an utter joke Instagram. Focus on things that matter.Version: 166.1

Hate the new update!!Bring back the activity/following log!!! What the heck !!!.Version: 114.0

Regarding notificationsI never bothered to leave any reviews because I did not really have any issues with the app until now. Please REMOVE the annoying notifications of “people you may know”. I find notifications about people I may know extremely annoying and unnecessary. I don’t care about people I may know. I didn’t mind seeing the suggested people on the app but now I’m getting actual notifications about this and it’s really annoying. It’s always people I don’t know at all and there is no way to turn off these stupid notifications. I hate them, please remove these awful notifications or at least give us the option to turn them off because when I went to check to see if I can turn off this specific notification, there was no option to do so. The only notifications I’m interested in are notifications of likes and comments on my posts and when my friends send me direct messages and friend requests. Any other notifications I’m not interested in, but the other notifications at least have an option to turn them off. But these people you may know notifications are just annoying, useless and I have no option to turn them off. Please give us that option to turn these notifications off as I DO NOT want them! I’ll raise the number of stars once you provide the option to get rid of that annoying notification of people I may know..Version: 162.0

Layout updatesI love Instagram, in fact, it’s the social media platform that i use the most and enjoy using. However, during updates, Instagram are constantly switching the layout to different layouts that are confusing and extremely annoying to use. The layout bar that is sectioned at the bottom of the screen, used to have all of the main things that you usually use on Instagram, however, recent updates have made it switch around so that you have a section to buy things and another section where you can watch extremely un-amusing videos. I never use these features and it annoys me that Instagram has moved them because they’re both features that aren’t being used and Instagram wants them to be used. I’m writing this review so that you guys can please make an option where you can change the layouts, into previous layouts. I don’t want to sound rude, however the constant layout changes, making the app worse, is so infuriating. So, please can you make the switching layouts an option? Adding this feature would honestly be so useful because i really can’t stand the new one. Please consider it. Thank you :).Version: 165.0

New UpdateThe new update is absolutely annoying. I can’t see recent posts without having to click on older posts from people I follow. And if I don’t click on that it just displays ONE new picture from someone I follow. Every time I get on this app all I see is that. Which at this point has gotten on my nerves. Just that one recent picture which is 7 hours old now. Even if I refresh the page I don’t get an update of recent posts with other people I follow. Before the new update it changes constantly and I know some people that I do follow post on a daily basic. Change the format back. I rather scroll on my feed to see post of people I FOLLOW. Not the stupid suggest posts on my feeds. Change it back to how it was. This is incredibly stupid. It’s more stupid having another button to see older posts on my personal page. Stop putting explore page videos/posts of people I do not follow on the personal page. I get on Instagram multiple times a day and I do use the explore page a lot. Keep the personal page separate from the explore page. That is beyond ridiculous. Why are you changing the format? I don’t want to see suggested posts on my personal page. Change it back to where when I scroll on my personal page, it just displays posts from people I follow. Stop including the explore page on the personal page. KEEP THEM SEPARATE. Literally have a personal page button and an explore page button for a reason. Keep it that way..Version: 165.0

Number of likesCanadian users can’t see number of likes anymore while everyone else in the world can. This is unfair to Canadians. I’m deleting this app and recommend all Canadians do so until this app decides to respect Canadians.Version: 112.0

Still keeps CrashingInstagram is my favourite social media, which is why this annoys me so much. I rarely update apps because stuff like this happens but I had gotten an update a while ago that had made Direct Messages go in a weird order. I got an update to fix that and ever since then, instagram is always crashing a few seconds after I open it. Its very upsetting and I really thought it was fixed. I have had to reinstall it, restart my phone, keep it open etc many times to get it to work. I don't really like the non-chronological order because I miss out on lots of posts I like and just see the same ones again and again, but my other big issue is videos. I usually only have a small amount of data and videos automatically playing when I dont even necessarily want to watch them makes my data go down quickly. Please create a feature where you can turn off auto play for videos, thankyou, but other than these things it is a great app.Version: 15.0

PLEASE FIX YOUR FILL OUT FORMS ! THEY DONT PROCESS!! I DONT FEEL SAFEI literally don’t know what to do anymore. Someone’s pretending to be me I try filling in the form attached my ID I even tried through the computer and it’s saying they can’t “process my request” I tried other ways to report it to them by reporting a specific photo cause the profile photo they have of me is the same at the photo they uploaded I sent the report EXPLAINING THAT THEIR FORM ISNT WORKING sending the photo so they can see and my photo to confirm that I’m the one in the photo.... they replied saying they can’t process my report cause I sent too many pictures they ask me to sent a picture of just me holding my Id. The only thing they did was take down the photo the fake account uploaded!!! They literally had one job... like don’t you see my ID has the same name of the account ? And the photo uploaded is the same as the profile picture? That makes no sense. I heard you can get an account deleted if you have about 15 people to report it... that didn’t work either... mind you I don’t even have a personal Instagram anymore I deleted it due to this person trying to do me harm... I have no idea what to do. I already tried reporting the issue “somethings not working” to them and after submitting it little 30 seconds after it says I need to tap to re try uploading my report cause it’s not going through... please can someone help me with this... I feel so unsafe !.Version: 173.0

Following activity page needs brought back.Seeing what my friends like is 80% of what I use this for. This has been my main social media, and was my favorite up until this new year. Probably moving to something else. How can people be so out of touch. You’ve slowly destroyed this app over the past few months. I’m not sure if Facebook bought you out but it sure seems like it. This was a place you could really laugh with your friends and meet new people. But why not be snapchat? Why not be Facebook? There popular right? This isn’t just about this recent update, you’ve been deactivating “meme” pages for months and there’s a reason they get so many likes and followers. Because we enjoy them. I don’t plan to be with you much longer. Maybe give us a useful function that’s not something snap already has, or just keep taking key features of your app out that’s a good course of action. Maybe if people want to hide all the “ig models” they like you can add a setting to hide just YOUR stuff from your followers “following activity”. The only logical reasoning is people want to hide what they like, give them the option to do that on there own. This seems to be in favor of the ig models, now all these new people can like because there wives/whoever won’t see. And we all lose a way of seeing things people with similar interests like. Nobody wants to watch explore tiktoks, models, nba videos. I’m interested in more than what you feel like is “trending”.Version: 114.0

Too many frauds on InstagramI have had to block many followers on Instagram who have all proved to be frauds on here. Even when reporting them it usually comes back to say that they are doing nothing to violate the rules on here and yet clearly they are by impersonating other people and using their pics as their own. There should be some way of screening people who join Instagram so that no one can join with fraudulent information about themselves !!! It makes it very heartbreaking and frustrating, for women especially, when a friendship ends in dire circumstances ... An improvement here would make IG safer for many people .... and not allow scammers, fakes, and frauds on here to deceive other people who are wanting a positive experience..Version: 46.0

Recent IssuesI have always enjoy using Instagram for both my personal and business account. It is one of my most visited social media platforms and something I have always recommend to people. However, the option to share other people’s posts when they are on public to my story has been taken away which is very frustrating. I am not sure why and it is very strange as I did not change any of my setting, the ability to do this just stopped randomly. I have asked many people about if they were experiencing the same and some people have been. They are experiencing the same frustration I am with this app and no longer having this option available. I have deleted the app and re-downloaded it to try fix the problem and it has not worked. I am thinking about just deleting it all together as without the sharing option being available when an account it on public I just don’t see the point in having it. Hopefully this issue can be resolved quickly for everyone that is feeling this way..Version: 205.0

Stop removing features and changing everythingOh my god I really love Instagram but if you guys are gonna remove the ability to post to your stories as well as this horrible layout update, I’m definitely gonna uninstall this app and leave a bad review. It was perfect until you guys started removing features that people genuinely need to spread awareness about important issues and show their support to their friends. No one wanted this stop saying the “community” wanted to test this out when they didn’t. By removing this feature, people will have less interaction with friends, people they follow etc and won’t be able to spread awareness to others for important issues going on in the world like BLM. Or perhaps that was your goal? To censor important things and issues going on in the world? To silence people’s voices so they can be heard to others? To stop people showing support to their mutuals or accounts they love which will lead to less people using the app that they’ve loved all this time? It’s basically self sabotage at this point if you take away this feature.Version: 168.0

Not working :/I love this app and have been using it for ages, but recently it has been playing up... I have been using this app for about 2 years now on my iPhone 5s, but this week I discovered that every time I open Instagram it acts normal and lets me use it although this only lasts about 10 seconds. This is when my screen goes black like my phone is about to die and then it just goes back to my homepage and the app shuts down. At first I thought it was just one random glitch so I tried opening the app again and again and again and each reaction the same as the last. I double clicked my home button and swiped up all my apps to refresh them and tried again once more and it still didn’t work. I then powered off my phone completely and turned it back on again. I reopened the app and it still didn’t work. I tried all my other apps to insure that it wasn’t my phone doing this, and they all worked fine as normal. I don’t know any other ways to fix this which annoying because I use this app all the time. If anyone knows anything about this or has had the same happened and fixed it please help me, Thanks..Version: 37.0

Not sure why the developers want to sabotage their own appOf all the social media platforms, I use this the most and really enjoy checking it throughout the day. Sadly, the latest update has made some really counter intuitive changes. The three main buttons (add content, likes and messages) are now bunched up in the top right corner in order to make lots of room at the bottom for ‘Reels’ and a ‘shopping’ button. I assume these two buttons have been given all this extra space as a way of promo. It feels like they are trying to make the app have too many functions and buttons.. a cluttered interface a bit like... Facebook. Oh dear. There is no longer any satisfaction in seeing the likes you receive for your posts as they either don’t show up in an icon to notify you when you check the app. When you do check, you can no longer see individual user’s ‘likes’ in chronological order. They are now grouped up. I don’t know why. Surely this works against the entire point of the app. I discover other people this way and use it to see who regular interacts with my posts. I’m completely stumped as to why that would be changed. A total own goal that gives the impression that the app is losing popularity and was in need of drastic change. I hope they undo these changes or at least modify them more in line with what made the app popular..Version: 165.0

Algorithms is horrendousSo instagram has been my favourite app now for a long time. I use it for both personal and business at first when the algorithm changed it was super annoying as the whole point is I’m following people who I want to see posts from not a million ads and suggestions. Anyway eventually I got used to it but lately I’ve been noticed more changed and it’s just getting worse and worse. Majority of the posts I’m seeing are from days ago and most the time from accounts I don’t care to see as much. Showing me posts from days ago also puts me off from liking and commenting as it makes me feel like I’ve been stalking through their account when in reality I’ve only just seen the post. This has also affected my business page too. The reach is so much lower than previously despite using hashtags and occasionally sponsoring posts to try and get acknowledged but even then it’s only bringing in a few hundred views if I’m lucky when I used to get up in the thousands. How you are expected to run a business through Instagram is beyond me as each day I’m losing followers thanks to the algorithm as nobody can see me post which means a loss of customers too. Slowly starting to consider deleting the app all together and finding a new platform with a CHRONOLOGICAL algorithm 🙃.Version: 34.0

Sensitive contentI follow several artists / content creators whose content is deemed “sensitive” by instagram. I know for a fact that most of these accounts never show up in my feed despite the fact that I’M FOLLOWING THEM. I’ve even gone thru certain pages and liked several posts at a time in an attempt to show the ig algorithm that I want to see the content that I follow. To make matters worse, now everyone is talking about this new sensitive content filter but I don’t have it available in my settings. I have updated, reinstalled and combed thru the app’s settings to no avail. So basically, IG refuses to show me the content that I follow. Instead, I am constantly having tiktoks and ads shoved down my throat. To make matters worse the only content they seem to deem “sensitive” is nudity, specifically any nudity that may be portrayed from a female perspective. Political propaganda and misinformation are NOT considered sensitive content apparently, so my explore page has no shortage of casual racism for me to pick through, not to mention all the fast fashion and ponzi schemes. It’s honestly pathetic how transparent instagram is. They only care about content that they will get paid to show you. They don’t care about “filtering sensitive content” and they definitely don’t care about preventing the spread of misinformation. I wish more than anything that an alternative to IG would become mainstream, this platform is seriously dead. You killed it. Congratulations..Version: 204.0

Instagram and is updatesRecently my old Instagram was deleted. Because of an issue that was Instagrams fault. I couldn’t confirm my email and it recognised me as a bot and deleted my account. I set up a new account since my old account was fully deleted and there was nothing left. I did follow for follow to gain more followers. And now I’m blocked from following anyone. Instagram continues to surprise me with god awful updates and fixes that no one wants. This new algorithm that thinks you are a robot is horrible. Ever since instagram was bought by Facebook it has been turned to dog ****. Something needs to change, fix your app, stop these stupid updates that don’t fix anything but cause more problems. Listen to your customers, us, and fix my account..Version: 167.0

Instagram Isn’t Improving User ExperienceInstagram’s idea of a “good user experience” is not making it a good time. Their great plan to make posts out of chronological order is where it starts, I suppose. It makes no sense that I can only see posts in my feed from people I interact with most—I don’t have time to scroll through my entire feed, but I pretty much only see about 20 of the accounts that I follow, no one outside those because I can’t “interact” with them. How will I interact with these if i cannot even see their posts? Regarding posts—Instagram is supposed to be a photo and video sharing app, and the quality is downright terrible. Photos are grainy, videos never load, the list goes on and on. I’m here to share my art, and seemingly, it gets more and more difficult to reach others of the trade. When I first started in 2015, more people could discover me. Now, no one can and it’s an absolute mess. If Instagram truly wanted to “improve user experience” it would. And it’s not, rather going for select posts the app *thinks* you’ll like. I can like a variety of things, so show them all to me. My experience with Instagram has gone down and it’s no longer enjoyable to use the app because of so many inconsistencies, not to mentions the countless times Instagram’s been down just this past month. Please take a moment to listen to your unhappy users. hard to navigate with the new update..Version: 194.0

Great for sharing content but terrible for conversationInstagram is a great platform to share photos and short videos and view content from other users that have different passions and interests. The explore functions work well and the tailored algorithm will ensure that posts you see have some relevance to your personal interests. However, the comment function on Instagram is one of the worst I’ve experienced. There are very view options for formatting a comment and you cannot link anything. I’d you come across a comment chain that is quite long, you can only view 3 comments at a time, so accessing the earliest comments in the chain can be difficult. If you want to see replies to a comment you have made, all of the previous comments will be made inaccessible, and if you want to see previous comments when you have replied, all later responses will be inaccessible. There is also a chance when touching the screen while commenting for it to suddenly close the typing window, losing all progress. The comment system could really use some changes to reduce the frustration, but everything else has been pleasant..Version: 186.0

The new update :/Hello fellow Instagram users and the creators. I am aware that you have decided to make me not know when I’m getting left on seen. I’ve completely lost it. I am part of a group chat and we are so puzzled and aren’t sure what to do as this update has put an affect and impact on our lives. I miss it with all my huge chunky heart and I would love it to be back as it gave me a reason to get mad because someone would leave me on seen. I will then extend my star rating to very high as Instagram is like the daily newspaper on my phone and I get to see what Jo jo Siwa is up to. So this major thing needs to let me seen people otherwise I don’t know who I am. Sincerely lil George.Version: 61.0

The worst customer service. Have lost faith in trusting InstagramInstagram has made changes that have mistakenly deactivated thousands of users from accessing their accounts - including mine. They have deactivated for “breaching terms of conditions” without any warning sent to the users or reason. You just get a generic message and are left wondering what you did. Now, the issue is if you ever need help from Instagram, there is NO way to contact their help centre. It is the actual worst. All of their help just loop you to their FAQs but don’t actually provide any help in recovering accounts that were deactivated by Instagram unfairly and without reason. If you check their Twitter posts, read all the comments. Hundreds of users desperate to try to reach Instagram taking to Twitter, or spamming fb to try and get help. And the worst ? NOW REAL hackers and scammers are taking advantage of these desperate people and offering “hacker accounts” to get their accounts back. Charging real money and then gaining access to banking info. Why are these con artists not deactivated for breaching policy?? There is a HUGE error going on, with zero communication from Instagram. No acknowledgement. No timeline on when these users can get their accounts back. So be warned. Delete all third party apps that log in to your account because that is what can trip up their automated system to just disable your account with no warning. It thinks you are using bots automatically and will keep you in the dark for weeks to months. Instagram, I’ve really lost my trust in this platform. Unacceptable lack of customer service and acknowledgement. I hope more people speak up about this..Version: 163.0

No help or supportI have had troubles with the music feature on instagram for MONTHS now. I am not able to use any music other than the few automatically shown ones that are there when I click the option, and all the songs are in some foreign language or they're instrumentals of some sort. I am not able to search for any song whatsoever as it will just tell me there are no results every time. A couple months ago, i was still at least able to save a song if someone sent it to me, then go to saved music, and use it through that. But now the problem has worsened and I am not even able to save any music nor see/use any of the music i had saved before this was an issue. I have reported this problem to instagram multiple times over the course of about 5 or 6 months and they have yet to respond in any sort of way, let alone fix the problem. I know i'm not the only one dealing with this as i've seen in reviews, as well as on other social medias such as twitter, that there have been a good amount of other people dealing with the same issues. This problem has been aggravating and upsetting, and the fact that i and many others have tried to reach instagram to fix this issue, yet have not even been addressed, only adds to those emotions. The music was one of, if not THE most used feature for me on instagram. I have tried multiple methods on my own to resolve this issue but nothing has worked. Hoping instagram can get to the bottom of this sooner rather than later..Version: 224.1

New UpdateI love Instagram, it’s like a more modern version of Facebook thats basic enough for my grandma to understand but still fun for me to use. However I don’t know if this is a fluke or apart of the update. A message came up saying Instagram limits how much likes we can do on comments at a time to stop bullying... I just want to know who thought this was a good idea. This is a social media app that’s like the whole point, liking is literally the foundation of every media. If you have a limit whether your intentions are bad or not your going to end up being wiped for existence. And also I don’t know who thought a limit on liking comments would prevent bullying but that person has obviously never really been bullied in their entire life because that does nothing. The only thing limiting likes is going to do is leave Instagram with bad rating and have your audience delete the app and go to another platform that allows them to do what social media is suppose to be able to do. Speaking of such I won’t delete the app yet because I’m hoping this is a fluke but I will be switching to another platform, for the rest of the month, that is able to do its job. I appreciate the concern for bullying but find a way to help prevent it that doesn’t effect everyone and take away from the purpose of social media..Version: 156.0

Instagram is alrightIt’s a great place to connect with Friends and family and meet new people or connect with old friends. I also really love how you can share photos of what your doing or post things on your story to keep your friends updated, it’s an amazing app. But my one problem with it is that there are fake, inappropriate and false accounts on there that send naked photos to you or even lead you to websites that are highly inappropriate. This is just my personal opinion but I tried to report an account but instead of instagram blocking and deleting the account they said that they couldn’t find anything wrong with the account so I continue to get naked, inappropriate and sick photos and websites until Instagram finally saw what was wrong. Anyway that’s just my opinion on it..Version: 75.0

Show me the likes!You took away the ability for me to see how many likes certain posts receive. My daughter has a business account and I log her likes, and her competitors likes in order to help her improve her posts and therefore, her business. I know this is a test right now.....but I’m feeling like it’s just not going to come back. The amount of time I spend on Instagram has declined tenfold. I am no longer excited to go on, and I no longer find it interesting or fun. I know the reasoning behind hiding the likes is to help against children being bullied by their peers...... but you should find a different way to govern that. Block THEIR ability to see number of likes. Or don’t let them be able to have an account until they are 19. Anything else. But don’t punish the rest of us. BRING BACK THE LIKES COUNT!!!.Version: 92.0

Instagrams features RIGGED !!I’ve used instagram for over a year now. It used to be good (and I would of given it 5 stars), but that changed up until this past month. The feature ‘Reels’ is not available on my main account, but I have the feature on my 2 other accounts. I’ve tried to log in and out of my instagram, check to see if everything is up to date (including my phone software) and it’s all fine. PLEASE help!! Another thing- the feature “Text Animation”. I don’t have this on my main account AND my 2 other accounts. Once again, I have tried everything I can. I have tried looking on google if anyone else had the same problem, but I haven’t found many answer (leaving me to suggest that maybe very little are experiencing the same problem??). I have tried EVERYTHING and I’m now getting sick of instagram. I used to be on it all the time, but these little things bug me. PLEASE help. I’ve got no clue what to do left..Version: 169.0

The report system is literally pathetic.With how big instagram is as an app and with the sheer amount of people using the app it’s obvious that there will be plenty of accounts that violate the terms of Instagram but even when that is clearly evident the report system usually cannot pick up on these violations. This is a serious issue when there are so many homophobic/racist/transphobic accounts and posts with clear intent to hurt others and enforce their toxic views into the community. There is also the major issue of pedophiles now bridging over to Instagram and there is no clear report button for this very serious issue as usually the nudity report doesn’t actually yield any action to be taken. The report system clearly needs to be revamped in order to make Instagram a safer place for its users. Instead of making updates that change layouts or how the app works that are usually hated and deleted soon after the update, it would be more beneficial to actually fix this major issue. I’ve rated this as 1 star in order to draw attention to the issue. If this was fixed I would easily rate the app 5 as I use Instagram on a constant basis and is my main way to communicate with my friends. Fix this issue to actually go against hatred. Please..Version: 79.0

Regarding the recent updateInstagram is a wonderful place for me to browse memes and upload classy images, of my good self. It has become a staple within the social media world. With all that being said, this app would’ve received four to five stars. However, my phone decided to update the app and, much to my surprise, it’s an absolute travesty. I know I’m not going to be the only one saying this, because there are people with more than four brain cells, out there, but do tell me what was wrong with the good old fashioned vertical scroll? It is the unsung hero of modern day phones and you decide to discard it? Fair enough, you kept it on the explore page, but why ruin the home page too? It’s now going to take me an age to see tippitytopkek’s sweet cheeks, or the memeoverview’s explanation on meme origins, because I’m now tapping like a tosser, trying to find the bloody things. Whoever it was who proposed this idea, to the Instagram board room, needs a good long look at themselves before they can even think about re-entering today’s society. Because of this, I am only able to give the current version of this app two stars. I hope this was enough to maybe give instagram it’s original style back and maybe, just maybe, sack the delusional fool who created this new layout Thank you Lots of love, ggeobbates x.Version: 75.0

It just gets worseI dread each update now, waiting to see how more bloated an app this becomes, with pointless ‘added functionality’ that I never see users asking for. I get a feeling the app is being dragged down a dark alleyway to become a twisted and broken version of its original incarnation. It constantly freezes when scrolling through the feed, keeps telling me I have no internet connection, when I do. I’ve done all the fixes suggested, and it works for a couple of days and then it’s back to freezing again. My feed often has duplicates, at first I thought it was some kind of refresh glitch, but when I scroll back, there’s the image I’ve just liked. As for date order of content, you can tell that the Facebook engineers have been in there tinkering, as the feed now acts as erratically as the standard Facebook feed. It’s like the whole app has been infected with the same bugs that Facebook has. With all the rumours of removing likes, becoming a sales front end for business and the utter chaos that is the magical ‘algorithm’; my experience of the app is like watching a beautiful flower gradually wither over time and become a distorted shadow of itself..Version: 90.0

Could be betterWhen a company is so big and powerful as instagram, they can do what they want. Even if users are disappointed with things they keep using the app as it’s important for them not to lose their followers or social media status. One thing of many things which upsets me as a user of this app is what many other users are not aware of, instagram have forbidden hashtags, yes they do have forbidden hashtags and they keep changing so there is no way that you would know until they actually shadow ban you. They do let you post the forbidden hashtag without informing you that it’s forbidden and then they put your account in “shadows”. They don’t even inform you that they have put your account on shadow banned mode, you can only tell that your account acts less powerful and the worst thing is that you don’t know for how long it will be shadow banned plus there is no support from instagram at all. Instagram will be old news at some point and it’s only because they are to money driven and care less about individual user experience, same reason that you can’t see if someone has unfollowed you without using a third part app (an app which instagram can recognise as a bot and put your account in a shadow banned mode). Good luck to the future of social media until the next new things comes....Version: 96.0

Deleted my account for no f** reasonI don't know who reviews the accounts and posts but they're definitely not doing their job right They deleted many posts based on the amoung of reports it got with out actually reviewing the posts ( the posts you deleted i was defending people's rights in , the opposite of what it got reported for , and the people who reported those posts were the criminals i was defending the victims from , they just had the numbers and the posts " you should've actually reviewed before you deleted" were absolutely clean and didn't violate any rule ) and I reported this problem many times but got no reply, eventually they DELETED my account that had 70k followers "again based on the amount of reports only" without actually reviewing the account, i've been emailing you for months and still no reply I provided all the evidence you asked for and still no reply , who the f** is working there , are they blind? And my new account is being reported too , some posts got deleted for nudity, and it's just pictures of tha dam* nature at night , are you f** serious?! This is absurd, how on earth is night time nudity?! That's a clear proof that you act based on the amount of reports not actually reviewing and doing your job , I'm deleting this stupid app and Facebook and messenger, i might use it when they hire people who actually do their jobs , Twitter is so much better Sooooo much Non of this nonsense happens with their app.Version: 194.0

Lack of report systemInstagram has more potential than it has now. But a few issues are what keeping them from pulling out of from the others. First is the amount of bots, fake, and duplicate accounts that are on IG. Myself and some others (possibly) use IG as a place for photography, businesses, reaching a broader community to share the similar likes, or just for fun. With those few listed accounts, it limits who can see your posts and your account. I can see/understand if someone has a business and personal account. But to have 3+ accounts that are the exactly the same and are troll pages then why keep them up? Also there are times especially now (not sure if it’s happening to some people or not) is accounts and people who are clearly going against the TOS and guidelines with their posts and accounts. No matter if it’s drugs, tobacco, alcohol, nudity or sexual images. Some are showing up in popular feed (whatever it’s called) and some though scrolling through posts. Like earlier yesterday/today I tried reporting dozens of posts and accounts of completely naked women and a few of drugs and tobacco in use that showed up and all IG said was that “it doesn’t go against their guidelines”. How does all of this not go against the guidelines?? Also reported a account that supposedly had gotten “removed” on a couple different occasions but still on their as of yesterday with basically no consequences other than a couple pictures that were reported and removed. So I don’t know..Version: 169.0

👎🏻Unfair censorship to minorities across the platform and too many offensive ads (example: weight loss and cosmetic procedures).Version: 169.0

What happened to the app I loved?Im in the same boat as many others here. I liked Instagram as it was different from other platforms. It’s essentially become a place to reshare tiktok videos and there’s no longer even a button on the toolbar to make a post. There is NO customer service. My app has been glitched for SEVERAL updates and won’t allow me to share a post (even my own) to my stories. I report and hear nothing. I’ve removed the app from my phone and re download and same issue. The issue even stayed with me when I purchased a new phone! I get that there’s a huge user base, but seriously they can’t dedicate ANY energy to customer service for escalated issues?!? I’m a contractor and can no longer share the posts of my clients and partners - during a pandemic it looks even more to my clients that I’m not involved bc I can’t promote their content without taking a screenshot and creating my own post- it’s hurting my working relationships. It’s gotten so bad that I barely use the app anymore. I don’t like Facebook SnapChat or TikTok and it’s clear that Instagram is just becoming like the others so there’s no point. I’m served adds and content I didn’t follow and am constantly missing out on important updates from people I actually care about - the whole point of the app allowing me to specifically target my experience is gone, and Instagram frankly doesn’t care about its users as they are all the product themselves..Version: 206.0

:(Hate that I can’t see what people liked or commented on with this new update. It was how I found some of the best content/people to follow! Please bring back..Version: 114.0

CrashingOkay so Instagram keeps crashing within about three seconds of me being on it. Sometimes I can get on to it but then I go off and can't get back on. I've tried turning my iPod off and stuff but it doesn't work. I updated it and it still crashes. Please fix this!! Would give it five stars if it weren't for this..Version: 16.0

Notification problemWhy isn’t my notifications working on my iPhone 10? It only works when I am on the app, I don’t get notifications when I exit the app or when my phone is off..Version: 137.0

I’m beyond angry!!UPDATE THIS MORNING DID NOT FIX THE BELOW PROBLEM! Years ago, you took away the ability to add frames within the Instagram app. I was angry at the time as I thought this was a great feature. I lived with it. The last update for Instagram was three days ago. Within that time I can no longer access doing 60 second videos within the Instagram app to post to my feed. No, I am not talking about stories. No, I am not talking about the 30 second videos you can send in a DM. I’m talking about the 60 second videos that you can do in Instagram. I can only access photos and in order to upload a video I have to do it externally. All my settings are correct. All camera allowances are correct. The problem is with you guys. Either that or you’ve moved it from where it should be into another part of this app and I am unable to find it. I am beyond angry and if this is something you intend to get rid of, I request that you go back to the drawing board and rethink it as it would destroy a very large part of Instagram and it’s ease of use! A response would be appreciated!.Version: 96.0

Is it just meTruly I despise this app. I know for a fact I used to have an addiction to it. Wasted hours of my life. And for what, just to hate my reflection. Truly the moderators don’t care about what is shown. Much less of who is watching. First of all I know so many children with this app. 6,7,8,12 years of age. And what complains to I hear from them. “Oh my bf isn’t replying I hate him” this is the source of toxic people. And it gets worse because there are even more dangerous complaints I hear, “I’m so fat”, “oh my gosh I hate my genes why can’t I be pretty”. Ok you may not be everyone’s cup of tea but who is. This is main sources of Ed’s, mental toxicity, sadness, low self esteem, etc. and I know some may say it depends on how the user user this app. But it’s very hard to make the decision to delete it. But once I did it I felt like so much stress and self hatred and unproductivness was lifted of me. Truly deleting it was for the best, at least for me. And I now download it during the day maybe twice. And delete it. Gave my real friends my phone number and I try to stop caring about people life because they won’t save me. Most aren’t my real friends or most are celebrities who don’t give a crap about me. Although I can’t seem to fully let go of it. If u are thinking of starting with this app I recommend u control how you want to use it. Don’t let it become dangerous. And I hope parents aren’t letting their children use this either..Version: 216.0

Nothing but troubleWhen it works it’s great but when it doesn’t it’s useless. I’ve been really disappointed with Instagram lately. I run all the promotions for my business through Instagram but the promotion payments don’t come out straight away. It doesn’t specify when they come out, only at some random date that you can’t promote anymore because you owe payments. When you try to pay for them, a blank screen with “try again later” comes up. When it finally works, you owe about 10 promotions all at once and it doesn’t allow you to make the full payment. Only success I’ve had is processing a couple of dollars at a time which takes a painstaking amount of time that I could be using to do more constructive things for my business. If it was any other app I’d be yelling “it’s a scam it’s a scam!!”. I’m running a business. I have items I need to promote and sell and you’re effecting my sales. Do you want my money or not Instagram?! Or should I take it elsewhere and advertise through conventional methods? Support are useless too. None of my requests have been answered. Really starting to think the whole app is a sinking ship and I should advertise elsewhere..Version: 185.0

Instagram discriminated against who can post what in the comments.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..Version: 28.0

New UpdateWhy would Instagram, a photo sharing app, replace the notification section with a shopping tab????.Version: 166.1

I hate to love this appIt’s such a great app but the creators clearly do not understand nor listen to the users AT ALL. They never stop coming up with the most non sensical updates paired with the worst algorithm I have ever encountered!! That being said I don’t leave this platform simply because I love the concept otherwise. Photos posted overtime tell a story and I love looking through my posts and others. Stories are very fun too and dms are great as they are based off of facebooks who have the best dm system in my opinion. All I ask is for someone with a single brain cell to come up with the next update who isn’t so obsessed with making money lol. Otherwise I fear this app will have the same ending myspace did :/.Version: 166.1

Terrible UpdateThis new update has rendered the app essentially unusable. Ever since it was bought by Facebook, the UI has tanked severely, and isn’t user friendly anymore. The new positions of the buttons do not make any sense, the posting mechanism is hidden along with stories and reels, the DM system is 10x worse (trying to swipe out of a conversation can sometimes make you reply to a specific message which is completely unnecessary and unused), and at this point, I see more advertisements than I do my friends posts. The only reason any of these updates happened was because 1. Instagram wanted to make more of a profit by changing out the “notifications” section with “shopping” (a feature that most people don’t use) in order to bump up traffic revenue and 2. They changed out the “new post” button with “reels” as a way to compete with Tiktok. No one wants to do their shopping on Instagram, and if we wanted to use Tiktok, we would. Everyone who has been posting to reels has just been reuploading their Tiktoks, not making any new content purely for reels. Thr worst part about all of this is that if you have multiple accounts, these updates might not be present on all of them. Some of my accounts have the full update, and some haven’t even begun to change, which is extremely confusing. This review is longer than expected, but that just shows how terrible this apps interface has gotten. Don’t update if you can avoid it..Version: 166.1

DisappointedInstagram use to be better I’m disappointed the “following” tab disappeared and no longer there and you cannot see anyone’s recent activity.Version: 114.0

Used to be so goodI have been a long time Instagram user, since I would say roughly 8 years. I have to say that in its current state it is a far cry from what it used to be: in some ways good but in a lot of ways bad. The thing I use Instagram to catch up with my friends, as well as magazines, actors and generally figures that generate inspiring and interesting content. However, I think the algorithm has changed it to such a way that I don’t see half of what is being posted by these figures. They get pushed down to the bottom of my feed, if I like a friends picture and it turns out it was posted 3 days ago. Doesn’t feel very “insta” to me. Gone is the chronological order and keeping up with friends, (and no, those “view older posts” don’t help because they are just as messy although the ‘all caught up’ is a nice addition) and here is just an endless stream of ads every two posts because I liked just one picture of a moisturiser from a brand. I shouldn’t have to block or mute these other pages just to catch with my friends when that was the purpose of this app to help do it for me..Version: 161.1

This new update is terribleInstagram has made it even harder for you to see posts from the people that you actually follow with this most recent update. I now only see about 10 - 12 photos from people I actually follow, before I get to the "you've been caught up" message & suggested posts start popping up. I follow 200+ people, 80% of whom update regularly, yet instagram is making it impossible to see them. I miss so much time sensitive information, including sales, events or donations, all because instagram has moved explore page posts to your home feed as well. And posts are being BURIED with this new update. Half the time the "new" posts on my timeline are 1-2 weeks old & the posts in my "older" tab are from the same day. As a creator myself, my engagement has dropped exponentially, as Instagram is making it increasingly difficult for my work, & the work of others, to be seen. And that's not to mention the horrific placement of the new reels tab, dead in the center of the app, with the new shop page directly right, kicking both the post button & the notifications tab to the top of the screen on the home page. As a small business, this is FRUSTRATING to say the least. It seems like instagram is hell bent on punishing the very people that keep their app alive. At the very least, give people the autonomy to organize their app tabs the way they want to & choose to have a chronological home feed or an algorithmic based one. Come on Instagram, lets do better..Version: 166.1

Several glitches, not happy.Instagram is usually an amazing app and its fast and I never have an issue with it but recently theres been some major glitches that are really frustrating for me, like just now I recorded a video in the ‘story’ section and after I finished filming the whole video just froze and stayed frozen… I waited 20 minutes but had to give up and discard the video which is a shame because it was pretty good and it’s not like I can just record it again.. Another glitch is the sound from some videos I just watched, still playing on repeat in the background as I’m scrolling through my page or even in another section of Instagram like the search page or reels, I’ll continually have audio from an old video I just watched in the background until I close the app and refresh it completely. And finally the last glitch I’ll mention today is when I’m watching a video and my phones on silent mode I won’t get any sound at all, even when I click the little speaker in the bottom right corner… but when I put the ring mode and volume up on my phone to fix it, mid-way through a video, the audio either blasts on really loudly or still doesn’t come on at all??? Oh and all of these glitches have been happening for over 3 months now and yes I keep the app up to date. Thankyou for your time..Version: 208.0

So many bugs and what are you guys doing?!!Instagram used to be my favourite social network, but lately it has been so difficult to use the app I’m almost giving up. Here’s a list of the most annoying bugs: 1) You want to leave a comment on someone who’s “famous” and has a lot of comments on their pics, and as soon as you leave it your comments scroll all the way up, making you unable to see the latest comments other users left few seconds ago. 2)you go to direct messages and after a few seconds typing to your friend the message disappears, so you have to swipe down to make it visible again, but as soon as you start typing... it happens all over again! 3) you browse your followers/following lists and it completely freezes the app, and it’s not your internet connection that is bad, is the Instagram being unable to refresh the list. Anyways, I could spend a long time trying to explain all the things that are wrong with this app. You guys should be very careful, and fix these terrible bugs ASAP!! Don’t keep going thinking you’re “the best” and end up like other networks such as Orkut, MySpace, MSN... I’m sure a better app/ social network will come soon and you guys are just sitting there waiting for it to destroy years of your work..Version: 36.0

Hard To Navigate with the New LayoutFirst off i’d like to say that i’ve been using instagram since 2015. i’ve seen some changes over the course of these past few years that were very good for the overall use of the app, and some that just made navigating the app more difficult. the main reason why instagram has become so popular over the years was it’s simple layout that made it easy to access and interact with followers and discover people. but now, in 2020, likes and view counts are hidden, the feed isn’t in chronological order, the algorithm only allows you to see posts of only a handful of people you follow, and now the notifications have moved. if instagram wants to keep its users satisfied, then they need to go back to the classic look. keeping the classic layout with home, explore page, upload, notifications, and profile at the bottom makes the app easier to navigate. there is no reason why the shopping bag needs to be on the bottom bar because not everyone shops from instagram. there are a lot of scammers on the app! instead of changing the layout, instagram needs to fix the algorithm, put posts on the timeline back in chronological order, get rid of bot and spam accounts, and remove accounts/posts that don’t follow the community guidelines. now more than ever, there are many accounts that spread hate and misinformation! why was changing the layout a priority? fix it and bring likes and view counts back!.Version: 150.0

Can’t use Instagram anymoreI used to love Instagram on my phone and I ran 2 accounts. One personal and one meme page, that was until one day I got logged out of my meme and later found out it got disabled and I have no idea why. I still had access to my personal account though. To try and fix my disabled account i followed all instructions on the Instagram support and none work. I ended up deleting the Instagram app and re downloading it again. Big mistake. I couldn’t sign log into my meme page still and then I discover I cannot even log into my personal account anymore I get the same error message every time “sorry there was a problem with your request” if I try to make a new account on my phone I cannot and get the message “signup blocked, sorry you can’t create a new account right now”. I can log into my Personal account on my computer however so it’s not my account that is the problem it’s Instagram on my phone. I have tried so many ‘solutions’ to try fix my problem and none have worked. So to this day I still cannot go into ANY account on my phone. Extremely mad..Version: 76.0

What’s with the bugLook Instagram is great and I use it a lot especially to talk with my school friends about everything, however recently whenever I open the app the same message pops up saying that I need to try again later and that Instagram limits my actions to protect the community. I googled the meaning of this and saw that it only should appear when you like and dislike a lot of stuff quickly but I don’t like many thing in general. This is issue would be fine if it appeared the once when I opened the app however it’ll appear then go away but the moment I go to message someone (which is what I do the most) the same message appears and keeps appearing with letting me make it go away until my screen goes black after that the whole app crashes and kicks me out. I have no idea what’s happening and it’s really hard to talk to the people I need to when I can’t type. Please fix ASAP.Version: 199.0

Change the highlight story updateYou guys removed the feature which allowed us to view people who looked at our featured stories and that was a bad idea. Deleting the app. Please change back..Version: 79.0

You’re killing me, hereI like Instagram. I do. It’s a good app for keeping in contact with friends and for being able to share the things I create as an artist. But I swear the app gets worse with every update. The changes to the layout of the home page that make it so it’s basically a second explore page and so you don’t see posts from those you follow in chronological order are frustrating. The change to messages that make it so swiping prompts a reply to someone rather than exiting is confusing and non-intuitive, not to mention outright useless. The changes to the placement of the notification and posting tabs are infuriating. This is an app for sharing, not for shopping. Keep the shopping tab out of the main tab bar and put reels back with explore. Instagram would be much more user friendly if there was an option to toggle certain features (although calling them features instead of “hinderances” might, in some cases, be generous), such as the swipe-to-reply in messages, the suggested posts after the most recent posts in the home section, or whether posts were ordered algorithmically or chronologically. Additionally, allowing users to set up the layout of their tab bar would also make it more user friendly. I’m sure someone out there prefers the easy access to the reels tab, and would want to keep it where it currently is. But most don’t. Thus, allowing users to choose which features show up on the bar would make the app far better..Version: 166.1

Can’t remove a picture from a collage of two pictures in a post, but can with 3 or more?It is ridiculous that we can now remove a photo from a series of photos within the one post, however cannot remove a photo if there’s is only two photos attached to the post. I personally have a lot of collages with only two images and for many I would like to remove one, but the trash sign in the left corner of the screen only comes up when there are three+ pictures in the collage. I know I’m not the only one having this issue and a lot of people would benefit from being able to remove one of two of the pictures in a single post. I really do hope you read these enquiries because I believe this will benefit not only Instagram users, but Instagram itself from receiving complaints and angry customers in regards to this matter. Otherwise, Instagram hasn’t caused me any other issues and I enjoy using it..Version: 227.0

Annoying bug in the inboxI just put 3 stars for now to get your attention but I’ll fix it later. There has been an annoying bug! I have the creator account which is great. For some messages, I write a reply but it doesn’t get sent when I press the send button and the message disappears from my editor (the part that you write the message in before hitting the send button) and then the message is lost forever! No matter how many more times I try I won’t be able to send a message so I have to exit that specific chat go somewhere else and refresh the app or something or reopen the app and then find that specific message and rewrite everything again. It’s quite frustrating because I receive so many messages so it makes my task harder, because I’ll have to remember that specific IG name (I’ll have to screenshot, my memory isn’t that good lol), if the message is slightly old I have to go to that specific time through my inbox to find the message or I have to find that specific account on IG separately and try to reply to their message and then I have to rewrite the entire message and sometimes the reply can be slightly long. Will be wonderful to see this getting fixed, let me know please if you need screenshots or videos or anything. Thank you so much! You guys are amazing! 🙏🙏🙏🙏.Version: 97.0

You are losing long time usersIve been on instagram since it came out okay, I’ve been through all of the updates. I can deal with changes to layout, and bugs. What i can’t deal with is feeling like i am being thrown into what feels like a money making business. I understand you want to make money, but instagram originally was a platform to share photos and videos that’s it. I like to think of it as my digital journal, but now it feels like a task to even navigate and find posts that I genuinely want to see. Consider that maybe not everyone wants to be invaded with things to buy even if it is targeted to us, it is unecessary because if we truly need a product we know exactly where to get it without the need of Instagram invading our experience. Instead of cultivating posts you think I would like, leave it up to me the human to make those decisions. I like to think for myself. And what’s up with changing the chronological order of posts? What sense does it make to cycle in and out older posts from users. It is not useful, people like to feel in control. Instagram used to be a cool platform to literally EXPRESS and only that! You try too hard to fit in Instagram, stay original that was your best quality. Make changes and listen to your users, were the ones that keep you alive. We’ve got tired of apps before, don’t be the next one..Version: 167.0

New layout badI’ve used Instagram for YEARS. and this new layout is the worst! I have to go out of my way to access any of my notifications and the shopping tab is on the bottom row?

The new reshare feature makes the app unusable.Insta has always been about sharing. Sharing your own pictures, and sharing friends or mutual’s work too. The newest update makes the latter impossible and tedious. Instead of being able to simply tap the airplane icon next to a post, and then posting it to your story, you have to back out of it, go to your story, set up a new “create” post, and add a reshare sticker. This makes resharing on the fly incredibly annoying. It slows the spread of posts, and is basically discouraging people from sharing others work in the first place. This is detrimental to communities like activists, artists (who you don’t seem to care much about anyways), content creators, and more. You are effective killing the main source communication and collaboration within your app. Whether you think videos are the hit new thing or not, you ARE NOT TIKTOK. Stay in your lane, or you’ll lose every loyal user. If you’re trying to be something completely new, then make a new app, and leave Insta alone! Nobody comes to Instagram expecting TikTok like content, and that will never change no matter how hard you push that type of content. If you actually care about the stability of your user base, and the Insta community as a whole, please return the old resharing. You can keep your Reels, sure, I don’t care, but removing the biggest part of your app in hopes that it will make everyone want to only look at Reels content is a terrible idea..Version: 196.0

Stop adding stuff fix the stuff what’s already thereThis app just keeps getting more buggy, one of the problems is when you send a pic it will come up 5 minutes later at the bottom of your screen it will come up blocking the other persons texts. Another problem is when insta stops loading stuff or the app is very slow or non stop refreshing and please fix the feed I keep getting the same stuff I seen 2 days ago in my feed. The last problem I had is this problem where my post got taken down because I have a meme account and it keeps popping every day that my post has been removed even though I already know this and I’m worried that I’m going to get banned because I’m worried that Instagram will think I’m posting offensive content everyday. There is something I want you to stop doing and that to stop adding features and fix the problems what’s there already what’s been there for 2 months or more because what you doing is by adding features is building more bugs on top of each other. Instagram is a great social app what is easily a 5 star review but these bugs completely ruin the app and they need fixing ASAP..Version: 59.0

SadIve had multiple accounts since 2015 … I used to be addicted to social media … Now that I’m not I can see all the many things wrong with social media and especially this app … The shopping feature is dumb … The moving buttons around is dumb … Having only one account get an update when the other doesn’t, even though it’s the same app on the same phone, is dumb … I also really miss the layout where the profile pic was on the right and the followers number wasn’t big in everyone’s faces and the name and bio were bigger as well … That being said I do like that the views and likes can be hidden etc … The reels try too hard to be tiktok … The messages although I like different themes there aren’t enough interesting ones … The porn bot accounts are annoying .. Real people get their accounts taken down while all the bots just keep popping up … I just wish this app was about sharing pictures and 1 minute videos again … Stories are really extra .. privacy is just unheard of these days … It’s so annoying .. Also the comparing your life to others is very easy to do with this app … Anyway I already deleted it but you guys should too it’s not only annoying but it’s unhealthy. Get your real life back and stop worrying about what others are doing. Find yourself. Get a career. Be happy. Read a book or write one. Go outside. Get a job. Pick up some productive hobbies. Just detach from socials. It’s not real life..Version: 203.0

AwfulLiterally the worst app. i used to enjoy using instagram a lot, however in these past years it’s gotten more glitchy and has more issues. Not to mention the fact that they also removed their customer support email, so now there is virtually no way to solve your issues with instagram(the phone call doesn’t go through). Recently I was reposting a flyer for a high school club event that I wanted people to attend and instagram took the story down, claiming that it was against community guidelines,but offered no reason why. Why would a flyer for a high school club fit into any of the categories mentioned in their community guidelines? I tried different variations of the story, but all of them were deleted by instagram. I decided that I would request a review of the action taken against my story, but discovered that instagram says “Review Request Failed, please try again!” every time I pressed it. So not only can I not contact customer support, I also can’t request a review of an unfair decision that they made. I then decided to try posting the exact same story on a different account of mine and to my surprise it posted on that one. So essentially, instagram is only blocking my account from posting any stories through some weird glitch that I am unable to report to them or request review for. Until they are able to open a way for people to easily contact customer service and stop having useless glitches like the one mentioned above, instagram will be a one star app..Version: 215.1

Stories progression brokenI have submitted a support request an monitored the reviews here. It seems some people have the same issue I have, with stories looping indefinitely and showing a full bar at the top instead of giving the loaded timer of auto-playing through a story. I have to tap to progress to next for each individual story, breaking videos into parts and ruining the experience. My partner has the same model phone and his Instagram does not do this. Every time a new update comes out I have hopes this may be fixed, but nothing. All online resources deal with other problems of Instagram and this new iOS update. My problem started just before I upgraded from 14 to new iOS 15. I actually only updated in hopes it would fix the problem. I know it’s not the end of the world having to click through stories but it seems so random and gets really frustrating when there has been no communication or admission of this bug anywhere else than the few user reviews I find on here.

It’s gone majorly downhillAs someone who suffers with horrible anxiety and severe depression, I cannot abide by an exact rule system in order to get my content seen. I will gladly use all of instagrams tools when I want to and how I want to, but not when I’m already overwhelmed with real life and now Instagram, the place I escaped to, is becoming a chore of which I need to tick boxes in order for my hard work to even be seen. This platform used to be an amazing environment of which I could express myself creatively how I want and when I want. Now? it feels almost like a sick unattainable game, now I need to be uploading a specific amount each day/week despite being totally overwhelmed with how much I need to create or else I’m “punished” as your employees have put it. In this day and age does Instagram really think they are paving the way by totally ignoring the impact Instagram can have on mental health, the depleting followers of your users isn’t inspiring us to follow your rules it’s making us feel horrible, useless, ignored, and insignificant. I feel that if this app continues to dictate what users should upload when and where, that there will be a major PR disaster in terms of ignoring mental health, and everyone will move to eventually an app that can allow creatives to explore their own creativity how and when they want on their own terms..Version: 95.0

Is instagram deleting people for doing nothing?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..Version: 79.0

Had my account was shut down for no reasonI finally decided to get on instagram after my friends would not stop asking me to get on. And it was not a good experience, why because my account was shut down before even seeing the home page or whatever the first thing you see when the app is open. Now I’ll will tell you exactly what I did. I went to my App Store downloaded instagram next I clicked create new account, I entered my email address and chose my password then click next, the next window Gave me the option to leave my email address as my instagram account name I didn’t so I changed it and then clicked next then the page glitched out and said that something went wrong and there was a button that said go back so I did that and I took me to the beginning to create an account so I entered my email clicked next and it said that this email already exists so I go to instagram app clicked on log in enter my email and password clicked log in and I get a message that my account was closed because I violated the terms and condition. I’ve actually tried again to create an account 2 days later using my work email and it did the same thing again. Idk what I’m doing wrong but I’m annoyed and done with instagram, that I’m just going to stick with Snapchat. Also don’t bother sending instagram a message because they are probably not going to reply back it’s been about 5 business days since I’ve sent them a message and still no reply..Version: 110.0

Instagram is Digging its Own GraveFirst of all, I’ve only been using Instagram for around 5 years —maybe less— but I’ve been noticing that update after update, the app has become harder to use, uncreative, and, dare I say, annoying. I don’t exactly understand why the “create post” button was replaced by the reels button; I get that it is probably to promote reels, but there are much better ways to do that, such as put it in the place where the “create post” button is right now, or put it in the drop-down menu in the profile section. I also feel the same way about the heart button moving, because as someone who never uses shopping on Instagram, I would much rather look at who liked my most recent post(s) rather than whatever shopping shows me. Secondly, Instagram needs to stop ripping off other social media apps; I don’t know if this is because it was bought out by Facebook, but Instagram took the biggest details of Snapchat, TikTok, and Facebook, and miraculously managed to find a way to meld them into their app. It’s obvious that Instagram’s company is taking these ideas so people would use their app more, but I feel like people would use the app if it was more unique. To be blunt, Instagram should stop trying to be something else; Instagram should just be Instagram..Version: 169.0

IdkInstagram used to be rlly good but recently.. i think it’s like a new update or smt because it never used to log me out of my account and make change my password every time I want to go on Instagram. I really want to delete one of my old accounts but I literally can’t because the passwords that I’m 100% I used aren’t working and whenever I click send link to change my password the link usually doesn’t show up the first few time ls and I need wait around 10-15mins to try and get a new link. I rlly just wanna delete this account which should be a simple task but I’ve been trying to delete for like a week and nothing is working. Update: I can no longer access my account I’m completely locked out every time I try to log on it tells me I need to change my password but my old password doesn’t work so I can’t have a new one but whenever i click “forgot password” and put my phone number it just says I need to wait a few minutes before I can send another link (it has been a hour since I sent one).Version: 225.0

Most recent update???What were you thinking putting the notification & new post bars up the top? And adding a shop button down the bottom??? How does that make any sense, please tell me? A photo sharing app... puts a shopping option in the most CONVENIENT place for users to easily tap on.... and moving the options that app is literally meant to be & most used for in the most annoying and INCONVENIENT place on our screens. Make it make sense Instagram! No doubt most users will agree. Side note: I would’ve rated the app a 1 but Instagram is my most used app & I’ve been using it since it was first introduced. Pity all these unnecessary updates ruin the fun of it. Also, not being able to see likes has done wonders for people’s mental health (as sad and shallow as it is) and I cannot doubt that at all..Version: 166.1

Removing the Activity Feature - Bring it back!Recently Instagram has removed one of it’s features that allows you to browse through what people like/comment/who they follow etc. I’d recommend, that if Instagram has chosen to remove the feature of browsing through what people have liked etc. Why can it be created into a option to have within the app? So, for people who wish to still have it, they can turn it on within the app. For people who don’t want/need it, they can turn it off within the app. That way it is equal for the people who still enjoy using this feature within the app. But at the same time, you acknowledge the people who don’t need that feature and therefore gives them the option to turn it on or off. However, like myself, there are a lot of other Instagram users who are very unhappy about the removal of this feature. I can strongly agree with them, that it made the app a lot more interesting and exciting to use. Ever since the removal of this feature, every time I go to use Instagram it feels pretty pointless. The feature connected everyone together by seeing what posts each other likes and comments on. What new accounts other users have found, and potentially could have interest to you as well. I believe Instagram will lose users, if they don’t reverse this removal of browsing through activity..Version: 114.0

📦What was good or useful about Instagram is gradually whittled away until all social media platforms are the same, partitioning each individual into a separate box with a tailored stream of content designed to retain engagement and simulate an idea of community connection. Updates are pushed asynchronously, which means that none of your friends have that new bad feature you just got, so they don’t understand what you’re complaining about, until one day you all do and it’s just how it works now. I’ve noticed the app withholds the dopamine hit from seeing the red dot that indicates ppl have liked your posts until you’ve checked the app a couple times that day already; if you check it earlier, the likes are there, but really, that validation is just another tool in the quest to retain as much of your attention as possible. Even beyond theses criticisms, for an image-centric platform, Instagram stores very low quality jpeg images, with some kind of automatic sharpen/contrast filter that makes non-photographic images look particularly bad. Think critically about how you engage with this app, and pay attention to how the incremental changes make you feel. When you add them together, do you like where this platform is going?.Version: 185.0

ALGORITHM!😞Would just like to say one of the very few things I can fault about IG is the algorithm, at the very least please have it as an option where you can choose to have it in the actual order the posts are or in the current algorithm. It's very very annoying and I believe the whole idea is ridiculous considering the vast majority of instagram users follow individual accounts because they want to see what they post and not always what you would consider the most popular account's posts. It's frustrating seeing posts from friends pop up on my newsfeed that are only being shown to me now despite being posted 4 days ago! No sense to it! It makes it hard to keep up with people, especially if they post frequently and all their posts come up in a random order on my timeline - if at all! Also often instagram shows me many posts in my timeline which i have already seen and even liked and commented on already so it makes it hard to know when I've finished looking through my feed because I don't know whether to stop on posts I've already seen because i know that posts after i may not have seen because if this stupid algorithm. Please fix, I know you would make so so many users happy if you did Thank You.Version: 24.0

BlockedLast year I downloaded Instagram for the first time, and made an account, and for the most part of the last year it was fine. However, at the beginning of this month (July 2020), I was told that I had given my password away to get likes and followers. This is not true, the amount of likes and followers on my account has stayed the same. I was then told to change my password to continue using the app, which I did. A few days later, when I tried to like a post, I was told that I had been temporarily blocked from taking this action, and that this block would expire in 10 days. There was an option to report this but nothing ever came out of it. Eventually, on the date the block was supposed to expire, it hadn’t been lifted, so I made a new account. Now the exact same thing has happened and I am blocked from liking posts, leaving comments and following/unfollowing people, only this time there is no message telling me when this block will be lifted. I don’t understand why this has happened to me twice, but if it happens to me a third time I will be leaving Instagram..Version: 150.0

What is Happening?I’ve had this app for years - since 2011 with my personal account, then in 2014 with my book blog account, and 2021 with my writing account. My little bookstagram helped me connect with a community of readers, network with professionals, and even get my last 2 jobs. However, the insistence on algorithms, an influx of ads, and turning this platform into a Tik Tok wannabe has me debating if I should even keep it moving forward. I work in marketing and e-commerce, and I shouldn’t have to spend all my free time searching ways to market myself on an Instagram account that used to be fun. I have over 4K followers and can barely get 10 likes on my posts most days. I’ve put a lot of work into evolving my account over the years and trying to adjust to the changing times but I just can’t do it anymore. It’s time consuming and frustrating. I barely see things my friends and other bloggers post anymore. There’s no engagement - nothing. I’ve posted reels as per algorithm suggestions and get almost no insights, likes, or shares, and forget it if I take a day or two off from posting at all. You punish us for it. You’re only interested in competing with Tik Tok and boosting already popular influencers while leaving us little guys hanging and hidden. If I wanted to use a video dominated platform, I’d use one. Just let us post and hashtag our pictures and stop turning the space into an algorithm game that’s impossible to play let alone beat..Version: 219.0

Technical DifficultiesI personally use Instagram a lot and it’s the app I use the most. I think it’s a great app because it’s perfect for many thinks like - socialising, catching up on your friend’s life, using it to promote your business and many more. It gets very annoying sometimes with its multiple technical difficulties though. Once I was trying to post something and every time I posted it the caption would disappear. Instagram gets stressful sometimes because of it’s many issues. Although, I still use it and would recommend it. Just be prepared to get annoyed with the multiple technical issues. Also, I have multiple accounts on my Instagram, which is also possible, and the updates are always different. Sometimes one of my accounts is more up to date than the other and it actually gets quite frustrating. My main account I use is behind even though I’ve updated it so it’s up to date. Everyone except me has gifs on their account. Why is this?.Version: 67.0

Please helpHello Instagram support team, I was on Instagram all last night, and this morning I woke up and checked it as I do every morning. But instead of people feed under all the story’s there was a sign saying follow people to get there feed. So I went to my profile to see if I was still following people and yes I was 149 people but I can’t get there feed. So then I looked at peoples story and it said story no longer available, but then it kept happening. So I went to look at mine and EVERYTHING was deleted so I tried put something on my story and it said please try again even though I had wifi. I refreshed the app and it still happened. I expect this to be fixed ASAP. I am literally crying I am abessed about my instagram. Regards Ameerah..Version: 37.0

Personal use vs Business useThe personal use side of Instagram works fine and I’m happy with how I can interact with my friends and family however, when I started my business I needed to use Instagram to promote my service and this is where I came across account suspension and I have not been able to access the account since. The business was purely legitimate and we had a large amount of customers interested. The next morning we opened the app and we no longer have access to the account. I have been contacting Instagram and there is no single way of asking for support. It’s endless loops and false trails, drove me to leave a negative review. According to the Instagram “guidelines” we have been caught doing something wrong. I genuinely don’t know what was wrong about sharing videos and pictures of my business. However we have ‘ Instagram Model’ who are able to post images leaving little to the imagination. Baring in mind I have a younger sibling who is able to access my phone and my Instagram if he stumbles upon these ‘Instagram Models’ according to the guidelines this is perfectly normal but posting 2 or 3 stories of my business is completely wrong and is suspension worthy.... outraged by this shambolic service. 1/10.Version: 177.0

Pretty disappointed 😴So I’d love to give you a five but I just can’t. instagram has always been my favourite social app and I’ve been an active user since I was 14 (I’m 19 now so 5 years) earlier today I made another account; a private dancers profile for fans and friends to follow. The account did show my body but there was no nudity and as far as I’m aware it didn’t breach any guidelines. Instagram banned not only that account but also my public and private personal accounts. I can understand the dance profile being banned as it is about me dancing (stripping) but I’ve never had any issues with the other two so I have no clue why they’re suspended. If you could let me access those again it would be much appreciated ✨.Version: 100.0

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.Version: 22.0

Used to love it...I was an instagram addict, absolutely loved it and couldn’t ever imagine having to survive without it. until it became the source for all my troubles. i wouldn’t blame the app itself but more so the users (and the people are what make the app). i had a massive falling out with my friends and Instagram was their little hub for bullying me. i fell into severe depression and permanently deleted my account on October of 2019. since then, (and especially with the pandemic happening later on) i had to survive without any communication and my mental health deteriorated due to the bullying i faced on this app. i contemplated on making a new account and redownloading the app, and did so due to the severe loneliness I was feeling due to the pandemic but without friends the app, in my eyes, was pretty much useless and i ended up deleting it again. essentially, Instagram gives people more leverage in hurting others because they are behind a screen, as with many social media apps and sites, and that is a big problem in today’s society. i, and I’m sure many would agree with me, hope that people can become kinder and more considerate to each other because I’ve also seen obnoxious behaviour being normalised and encouraged, especially with the rise of social media. you never know if your actions could completely harm and crush another person for life, so please, think before you do anything..Version: 178.0

#DON’TDELETEPALESTINEInstagram was set up as a space for people to share and connect - travel destinations/artistic creations/awareness of mental health/make up ideas/injustices happening around the world/whatever we wanted. This was particularly important because while the news and the media do not report the whole story, people on Instagram were able to share and see videos/reports from real people, on the ground, showing us what is really happening. Both sides of the story. And 90% of the time what we were witnessing on Instagram was contrast to what the media were reporting. The media don’t report the truth. They report a biased one sided half truth. They manipulate us. But Instagram allowed us to see what was really happening, thanks to people sharing their experiences. But now Instagram have become the media. They don’t like that the people have the ability to inform others of the truth, and to let the world see exactly what Israel are doing to Palestinians. They are deleting posts that people are sharing of the Israelis attempt to ethnically cleanse the entire Palestinian population in Palestine. They are threatening to close the accounts of people sharing this information: of people literally being thrown from their windows/murdered on a daily basis. They don’t want this to be shared because Instagram, like every powerful source of news, it is controlled by powerful people - and they do not want us to witness that the Israeli State are in fact Nazi’s..Version: 187.0

An Insta-hot-mess of an appOne day, some genius at Instagram thought, "well it ain't broke so let's completely mess up a great app that was working perfectly for everyone." And since I have changed phones and have had to re-login to Instagram, I have been subject to the doom of the non-chronological feed. Why on earth would I want to see things posted from 3 days ago at the top of my feed?? This update is horrendous, non-sensical and goes completely against the logical way to use the app. People want to see things happening in the now, not the before. If the people at Instagram HQ have any sense, they will listen to their customers, small businesses and the like who use the app, not only for their personal stuff, but for their livelihood and give us back our chronological feeds! UPDATE: Original point about having a non-chronological feed still stand. However I’m experiencing a REALLY annoying bug. When I want to follow back someone who started following me, as soon as I press the button I’m met with an “action blocked” message every time! I constantly report the problem but I never see that anything gets done about it. It’s incredibly frustrating because I have to try multiple times for my follow to not get the error message and actually follow someone successfully! PLEASE FIX!.Version: 58.0

Good social media app, bad user interface designThe app works for what it needs to work as. But for whatever reason, the user interface constantly changes and there is absolutely no indication that it is meant to change in their version history updates. It becomes slightly irritating that the app will work one way one day and the next some random change will be made to either the explore page or the home page that just doesn't make sense based off of its history. My example right now would be the new reels that were introduced. Now when I go on the explore page there is a huge portion of it being taken up by reels that I don’t want there. Sure, reels is cool but I went to the explore page, not the reels page. Another example that also happened recently was where I opened the app one day and my home page didn’t show any of the pages I followed and instead showed random pages. It took me a minute until I realized I had to click on “see older posts” before I could see the old posts. Not that I care for this too much, but it was just irritating for no reason to suddenly have pages I don’t follow showing up in the section of the app meant for only pages that I follow. That’s about all I can remember but there has been a history other similar changes in the past as well that I vaguely remember..Version: 155.0

Following problem and algorithm is AWFULHonestly I’m thinking of deleting it. I could spend the whole review complaining about how bad the algorithm is like everyone else. Or that Ads are completely taking over my feed to the point that I haven’t seen posts/stories my friends have posted until about a week later however my main issue is a follow problem. Whether it’s a new update or what, Instagram won’t let any of my accounts follow people without removing the follow the next day. The support team have been atrocious at getting back to me as well. I have emailed in twice about this problem, logged out and then back in and also deleted the app and reinstalled it however there still hasn’t been an improvement. The app’s issue is that it’s being saturated with ads and is mostly now an app to try and influence you to buy things whether it’s clothes or phone accessories or whatever else. It’s no longer for you to post photos and the personal touch it used to have is now gone. I also feel as though this review is not going to help because of the immense size of this app. But anyway just don’t get it. It’s pointless and dying. Better off finding some other better social media platform which will actually let you see who you follow. And also actually LET you follow people..Version: 169.0

1- Impersonation problem not addressed for months! 2- TERRIBLE for business accounts!I’ve been having Instagram for personal use for a long time, but since a couple of months ago, things started to go downhill FAST. First - Every single promotion I create in my business account says it’s approved, and still is not shown to ONE person. I’ve already checked every single thing that I could be doing wrong, but there’s absolutely nothing wrong. Great quality photo, right size, right content, insta page connected to the Facebook page, you name it. And that would’ve been ok, if it wasn’t for the drastic change in the algorithms, which have been showing my page to its followers every day less and less. The only way to get engagement is by paying them to run ads, and even when you do it, they do not work... such a disappointment! Second issue - someone created a fake account of my personal page and HAS BIKINI photos, promising pornographic videos as if it is me, and even though I’ve already reached out to Instagram MULTIPLE times, and have about 100 friends who have reported the fake account, after 2 months ITS STILL THERE! And following every single male in my personal account. The account uses the exact same profile photo & bio as mine, and has blocked me so I can’t see it. — but I can see it through my business account. Instagram hasn’t responded to any of my attempts to fix things for months..Version: 166.1

???I don’t know why this keeps happening but every time I try to upload a photo the app crashes, after it crashes I go back onto Instagram and keeps crashing. I’ve restarted the app multiple times and it still crashes, I’ve uninstalled it and reinstalled it to see if I could upload the photos I want to post but it still crashes, after that one crash, it just keeps on crashing. I’ve restarted my phone multiple times too and it still happens. Whenever this has happened it’s usually fixed by restarting the app or restarting my phone but nothing helps it.Version: 126.0

Instagram App is a joke!I was using the app on my iPhone but some day I got heaps of emails that apparently people were trying to log onto my account (which is all good) however after changing the password of my account my Instagram app would not let me log on! No account would be able to log on. So I tried to reach out to the Instagram support via email however I would get an email back that there is no account under the email that Instagram provided which is why I started googling this issue and apparently tons of people have this issue! No one can log on to their account and they cannot reach Instagram support people which is a joke. Also I also updated my phone to the newest IOS and also deleted and downloaded the Instagram app again but nothing worked..Version: 79.0

Hacker Friendly!!!Instagram has let a hacker take my account, steal my identity, photos, and friends. A friend started posting a couple of pictures about Fortex trading, when I private messages them to say it was cool they told me that I should get with their mentor, and that it was really safe. After a couple of days they private messaged me saying “my mentor wants to give $500 to all of my followers” and asked me to change my email address in my personal settings. Not realizing that they were trying to hack me I did as they asked. After a couple of minutes I was logged out of my account and could not get back in. They were very pushy and what they were asking. Both my friend and I had private accounts. This happened December 7, 2021 and I’ve been trying to get my account back ever since. After they took my account they then extended the exact same hack to my followers, and I can not even warn them. I made a report to Instagram and they are not doing anything about it, and I can’t contact Instagram to get help. Update: I finally got my account back. Instagram did recognize me as the original user of the account. I do not think that it should’ve gotten this far though. I should’ve been able to get my account back almost immediately and been able to report it to Instagram..Version: 216.0

Still crashing - sort it out!!Sorry, I had no other avenue to write this as in trying to report the problem I’m having means it also causes the problem I’m hacked. Basically, every time to try to use it - whether to post or view - it crashes within 30 seconds. You have now uploaded two fixes and neither have worked. This was an app I loved using and had given me an outlook for my artistic expression which is essential for my well being. I’m imploring you to work harder to fix this for all iOS platforms. I would hate to have to delete the app for good if this goes on as it has given me so much joy but these last few days have been hell and I’m considering this..please for goodness sake get this sorted!!!.Version: 115.1

😕It would be reasonable if Instagram could have an option to where you can delete a photo (when you post multiple pictures in a slide) hopefully you understand what I mean. Sometimes you post multiple pictures together and change your mind on one of them out of the rest. Or (currently what I’m going through) I posted a picture of a loved one who has now passed and I noticed that when I posted my slid of pictures one of them came out in bad quality to the rest, I want to delete that one picture out of the slide I don’t want to have to delete the whole post 😞 please make this an option on your next update Instagram. Also, the commenting section is getting annoying I could comment ‘that ain’t it, or this was on Twitter too’ and Instagram will tell me that my comment is inappropriate or violates the policy. Surely that’s wrong and when I report it as a mistake I never hear back from Instagram, I genuinely need help with these things and it seems like Instagram don’t care. Overall I still like Instagram I just need help, it also applies to many people..Version: 46.0

Poor Customer serviceI love the app, it’s really good for using and contacting and connecting with people but I am reporting about notifications issues in my phone from couple of weeks ago, but there is no response from your side. I am not getting any notifications if someone messages me of likes my posts or send me requests or anything, I am not getting any kind of notifications, I have checked all my phone settings and even Instagram notifications settings all settings is perfect but still not getting any notifications. I have tried all the kind of techniques like; delete and reinstall again from App Store many times and also tried to reset my settings and even I have tried resetting my whole phone content and installed again, but still I have same problems. Please fix this ASAP..Version: 177.0

Used to be about connecting- now it’s just advertisingI used to love Instagram as a way to keep in touch with my family and friends. Especially during this time of being apart. However, now with the unbelievable amount of ads it is nearly impossible to see what I want to see (my family and friends) and due to the new - “you’re all done” feature I constantly miss posts and here is why: If I open my feed and look at some posts from friends, I can see there are several I haven’t scrolled to look at yet, I then click over to open a message, when I look back at Instagram those posts are gone and I cannot see them again unless I can possibly remember who posted something and to individually look at each of their pages. I HATE that feature that is now in Instagram. To me the benefit of the posts is I can always just scroll down to review them. Now each post is pretty much a story, see it once and it’s gone forever and now I have ENDLESS ads. Once you have viewed your new posts you can’t see them again all you see are ads. Don’t get me wrong, I do like SOME ads, they are personalized and helpful. But I’d rather they show up only in my stories than on my feed. I’m probably going to delete Instagram as soon as I can find a different way to see friends and family’s posts and not miss any because of the inundation of ads that is here. Intagram used to be about connecting, now it is just advertising..Version: 182.0

Too Much ClutterI remember when Instagram was simple. Simply Instagram. Post your square photo with a caption, get likes and comments. Now there’s too much going on. You’ve got Stories now, which is a direct copy of Snapchat’s breakthrough feature. There’s a bar along the top of your newsfeed showcasing the hundreds of Stories from people you follow. What’s more, swipe right and you’ve got an in-app camera feature. No, not for taking nice square photos for your profile, but for taking tall, low-quality photos/videos for your Story. Now when I look at my own profile I have a ‘Story Highlights’ bar, taking up far much more space than it should. I’ll never use Stories so this is pointless and I wish I could make it go. It’s just blank space. There are also Direct Messages now. These are fine, except I find myself sending ‘disappearing messages’ by accident. Again, this is trying to copy the main feature of Snapchat, done badly. Finally, I see too many adverts. Tone it down a bit! I wish Instagram would go back to the simpler days. No Stories, no ‘disappearing messages’, WAY less ads..Version: 76.0

Bring back chronological formatBeing shown what Instagram thinks I want to see takes a huge exploratory aspect away from this app. Go back to your roots Instagram, it worked for a reason..Version: 36.0

Stop trying to turn it into fb.I havent had facebook since 2011. Started using instagram because it was just pictures, likes and comments making it a more creative outlet. However, facebook has just ruined this app the last few years. Im so sick of reels. The Ads are ridiculous and half of them are spam. Guess I will be deactivating this account too..Version: 166.1

Reporting systemEverything else about Instagram is fairly good, though there are some features that’s next minor adjustments, like the camera quality but more importantly, the reporting system. Instagram’s algorithm for reporting an account needs to improve immensely. Instagram needs to take more time into their reports and sort them out based off priority, not based off someone’s profanity. There are still many child predators on Instagram that haven’t been reviewed because Instagram is too focused on minor issues like whether someone swears in the comment section. Instagram must take their reporting system seriously as it can help prevent Instagram from being a dangerous social network. Instagram also needs to consider more reports on child pornography, exploitation, hate speech and so on. If the reporting system on Instagram was used effectively, it’d help Instagram become a more safer and user-friendly app..Version: 221.0

Every big update brings me great painI can never say that an instagram update has ever thrilled me in recent years. Every single time this app has a massive overhaul, the controls become even more clunky and jammed together, I don’t even know what it’s trying to be anymore. I’ve been on this app for 7 years. In those 7 years, the notification/activity tab has been in the right corner, just left of the account button. So it baffles me as to why someone would feel the need to move it to the most unconventional place possible. It is so terribly out of the way now, and not only that, it’s been replaced with a shopping button, so every time my dumb ADHD self goes to check my notifications, I’m sent to some bootleg Wish page. To whichever one of you working at instagram decided to cram the activity button into the top corner with 2 other tabs, I truly hope you have an awful day. Just an unpleasant time. I hope you get a parking ticket, and your car runs out of gas. And you go to the kitchen to find your spouse has tried a new recipe for dinner, and it’s just not very good. And your computer crashes at a very inconvenient time, and you were using an adobe product and forgot to save recently, so you lose a lot of progress on whatever garbage your team concocted to ruin the experience of your user base. I truly despise you..Version: 164.0

/Becoming way too controlled. The algorithms have ruined a lot of stuff and mean you miss out on some stuff. Getting rid of seeing what other people like should be an optional setting as that page put you on to some good pages etc. If people have an issue with seeing their partner like other people’s things that is their problem as an individual. Getting rid of certain filters is absolutely ridiculous. Again, it is the responsibility of individuals to altar and control how they do or don’t use certain aspects of social media. For a lot of people the filters were just a bit of fun and harmless. If someone is insecure because of a filter they have massive insecurities and issues and that is for them to monitor their use of a filter instead of ruining it for everyone else. You’re happy to ban a fun filter but don’t ban people with real extreme plastic surgery. Getting rid of seeing how many likes something has, once again is extremely controlling and restricting. This should be a personal preference and a setting that you can either have on or have off. Again, people need to be accountable and responsible for themselves and their own insecurities/issues and should have an optional setting rather than taking it off people who have no problems with it..Version: 118.0

Still can’t view liked images/reelsFor months now I’ve had the same issue of not being able to view my liked picture and reels. Between me and the people I know who also use Instagram for iPhone, im the only one who doesn’t have the “settings>account>posts you’ve liked” setting anymore. And I was willing to let go viewing liked pictures because I found out that reels had an option to view liked reels, even if it was buggy. But now, neither option exists so liking pictures or reels is pointless. I basically have no reason to come back to this app because I can’t even go back and look at the art or tutorials I’ve liked/might want to use as a reference. I’ve also tried to contact whatever nonexistent customer service there is with no answer back whatsoever. Seriously, if you Google their customer service contact list, the only option is to report an issue through Instagram. There is no email, phone number, nothing actually useful that lets you know that your complaints or questions will be seen by a human being. Heaven forbid something good ever comes back to this app, such as the fixing of the broken algorithm that makes you view the same posts for weeks at a time. I’ve had to unfollow so many people because it was the only method to fixing the issue. Lazy, lousy excuse for “customer care.” Might as well go back to DeviantArt if you care about being an online artist in the modern day..Version: 221.0

I was ok with it at first but then this happened...So I went to go on my art account right. I go to check my activity and it says “we’re having trouble accessing your activity” and I was like ok maybe I need to refresh it. I did and nothing changed. So then I say ok I’m just going to post another piece of artwork when I go to post it, it wouldn’t post. I also tried refreshing it. It didn’t post. Eventually I was like ok maybe it’s my email. I went to go confirm my email and bam! Could not confirm my email I retried over and over again and nothing changed. I even tried turning my phone off and back on again even though I just got this iPhone 8 in December! When I tried it again after restarting my phone, it still didn’t work. So eventually I was like ok you know what, let me just log out and log back in. I did that and what do you know, I COULDN'T GET BACK IN MY ACCOUNT AT ALL! It’s so hard trying to promote an account and get more people to follow along with your art and I had been building that account for over a year and a few months...all my hard work and dedication down the drain. And to put the topping on the cake, my personal account had also started messing up so eventually I just said you know what maybe I don’t need this app because clearly if I did they would fix things like this and prevent them from happening. So I might just not even try to have another account. I really don’t want to start all the way over again....Version: 84.0

New Updates Are BadI wish Instagram would focus on actually improving their app rather than just taking a concept/function from a different app and changing the name before adding it to their app. The most recent updates are awful. Instagram is so glitchy half the time now that it’s almost unusable. The new layout is terrible to navigate. The explore feed just doesn’t flow nicely. Not to mention it’s ugly. Nowhere near as aesthetically pleasing as it was just a few months ago. Instagram we don’t want you to just copy old ideas from other apps (eg, reels). We have the other apps to use these functions. We want new and exciting ideas that draw us back in. Not even more buttons and windows added to the already overcrowded explore page..Version: 155.0

Censorship towards InjusticeInstagram has always been a platform where people can come together and stay informed on the latest trends, share their art and talents but also vocalize world affairs. Recently, many users have reported their stories being removed or unavailable to view (including my own) regarding the unfortunate and degrading situation of Palestinian people at the moment, and the human rights violations under the Zionist apartheid regime in Israel. This is absolutely disgusting, disappointing and a divisive act on Instagram’s part. Instagram, take some accountability and do better. Stop being selective in what content matters and is allowed to be up. These are not make believe stories that people are sharing, nor is it propaganda to push forward a narrative. There are real lives on the line, and people are LITERALLY being violently removed out of their homes. Shame on you Instagram. Shame on you..Version: 186.0

Saying this app’s gone downhill is an understatementThis app used to be so good but it started with the non-chronological order of posts so now u will seen 5 posts in a row from some stupid company you forgot to unfollow and miss all your friend’s posts. Reels are just the dumbest thing since that IG tv which failed terribly. Now they changed the whole layout to make ppl use reels cause no one likes them. Its just like watching the trashy side of tik tok. the implementation of the shopping tab is clearly just a shoddy cash grab by insta. Like the only good thing they have done this entire year is let us change the colour of the app on our homescreens and that was for like 2 weeks then they removed it. Instead of actually fixing problems like the fake bots sending illicit messages to kids and deleting bipoc and lgbt+ creators accounts. they are instead trying to screw this app up as much as they can and its working. Cause no one likes these updates and its sad to see how much this whole app has been ruined since being bought by zuccers but what can you say, the creepy lizard man was bound to ruin everything we know its cause he’s salty about how we mad fun of him..Version: 166.1

I'm not happy with the bugs and new bans...I've had Instagram for over 2 years now and not once have I had a problem until recently. I love Instagram and I have many friends thanks to this app who share the same interests as me but there's this huge bug going around that needs fixing, actually there's many. A lot of users such as myself can't change their bio, pfp and they don't receive any notifications of who follows them and who likes their posts. This has been going on recently for me personally and over a week! I've even asked help for Instagram to fix this issue but I didn't get a response yet. Please and I'm begging you, PLEASE fix these bugs for the next update I'm honestly very frustrated with this. May I also add that you take away the "Action Ban" and "Shadowban" as lots of users are getting these bans even when they didn't do anything wrong to go against the community guidelines. Other than that, those are all my concerns and frustrations and the main social media platform I use..Version: 123.1

Making a second account.I have had instagram for almost a year and i’ve never had issues until now, i decided to make myself a second account. when i attempted to make it the first time everything was alright until it ssked me if i was 100% sure i wanted to make the account. i said yes and she said there was an error and i should try again later. please keep in mind this happened to me 2 months ago, i tried it again the next week after that. same problem. eventually i got sick and tired of it and reported the issue. i got response. at that time i thought it was my phone that was the issue and soon after i upgraded my phone and unfortunately i got the exact same issue. then i decided to log outside of my current account and then try make a new one. and i still had the same issue. it wasn’t allowing me to make my second account. i don’t know why but i’m sick or tired of this. i have reported the issue tried switching on and off the internet but there’s no solution. please can you help me resolve this issue. i needed this account for 2 months now and i can’t wait any longer or have the patience to deal with this anymore. thank you for reading and please respond..Version: 153.0

A huge bugThere’s this bug in the app that won’t let me open any account asides from one. I’m sure I put in all the information right because I tried to open multiple accounts and it’s the same case it keeps saying “Sorry there was a problem with your request”. I tried uninstalling the app and installing it again multiple times but nothing changed. But when I open the account on another phone it works. Can you please do something to help I’d appreciate it. Thanks.Version: 75.0

Stopped workingSuddenly stopped loading and claimed that I didn’t have an internet connection, even though every other wifi using app on my phone worked fine with my wifi. Deleted the app and re downloaded it to hopefully make it work again. Instead as soon as I went onto the app it won’t even let me log in as every time I try to do anything it just says “sorry this is a problem”. Can’t log in, even though my password is correct. Then tried to log in on a browser instead of on the app and the same thing continued to happen so I can no longer access my account. Tried to contact Instagram for help but couldn’t even find a contact email or number on their website. Absolute rubbish..Version: 84.0

Instagram is only barely useful with story notificationsHuge decline here. It’s never been particularly impressive (to me) as a photos tool, but there WAS a critical mass of users which meant that you could reliably expect your social group to be there somewhere. Not anymore; in my experience, at least a dozen friends, in the past 12 months, have outright deleted IG AND Facebook simultaneously, suggesting strongly that IG is not an app that’s “killer” enough to overcome the tsunami of Facebook deletions. There are 2 dozen other photo apps in the iOS store at present with more features, better integration, faster processing & less battery drain than what you can find with Instagram. iPhone’s photo editing tools are so much superior to IG that it sort of baffles me why anyone with a modern handset would want to use those features. Even though I only ever perused this app for maybe 5 minutes per week by the time I cancelled, its battery consumption was routinely in the top 10, per the phone’s metrics. In fact, upon a quick check now, I see that despite deleting the app early this week, it *still* managed to book a 2% consumption of my weekly battery usage, which I’m sorry, but that blows me away. What on earth was this app doing to my handset in the background?! I just don’t care anymore, and when I deleted it finally, I went from needing a full recharge by 3pm to not even needing to charge *at all* through bedtime. That was a stunning confirmation of my suspicions..Version: 167.0

“how to make an update everyone will hate” guide by instagramWhat’s going on????? instagram was perfectly fine until you (i’m guessing Facebook) tried to start making the app more like other apps. why tf would you move the activity page and replace it with a shopping page. it’s so tedious and annoying. to get to, and this is a photo sharing app. no one’s main purpose on instagram is to shop. also, news flash, i haven’t met anyone who loves reels so much that they need there own page. please put it back to the way it was. and while you’re at it, posts in chronological order. instagram was a great app and the one i used the most but with every bad update i’ve been switching more onto other social media sites..Version: 166.1
