Its a great app I can talk to my friends and college's but.....I CAN'T LIVESTREAM plz fix once it is fixed I'll give 5 stars
Edited review: the updates have made Instagram somewhat better, however some notifications are still way behind. And it would be good if there was a mute button, like Twitter has. I don't necessarily want to unfollow certain people, just not see their posts every now and then (because sometimes some people I follow post silly things like 'quote this with your opinion about me'). Also the timeline needs to be exactly that, a timeline, in time order.
1) I HATE the non-chronological timeline. It is the absolute worst part of the user experience. I just want a linear, chronological timeline that remembers where you left off so you can scroll down to see older posts you haven't seen yet, or scroll up to see newer posts. The "intelligent" timeline also likes to suggest old photos from people you just followed, and liking those posts from your timeline just makes it seem like you were stalking them. PLEASE get rid of this stupid timeline, it's just ridiculous. 2) the number of spam accounts is just unacceptable. It's INCREDIBLY FRUSTRATING to receive follow requests from bots advertising "free dating" or "free sex" nearly every single day, sometimes even multiple times a day. One possible solution is to analyze account profile photos for the text "free dating" or "free sex" and that shouldn't be too hard considering most bots use the same font. Or, make it harder to set up an account to deter bots from being created in the first place. --- These two things aside, Instagram is great. But PLEASE fix these. If both of these get fixed, I will change this to a 5 star rating.
Had to make an extra account. Tried to delete said account. Forgot password to disable account, they texted me a link to change my password which was invalid so I couldn't change my password. Tried going to where you complain about things in the app and it said my account will be permanently disabled because I was typing to fast and that I'm abusing other users because of my typing, and I am by no means that fasted typer in the world. I was trying to ask how to change my password, I wasn't typing in threats or anything. This whole experience ruined my love for Instagram. Noe I kinda hate it.
Things are so ridiculously out of order it's not funny. Not to mention it brings up photos I've already liked before the ones I've already seen or they won't be there until hours later. So now I feel like I'm missing a lot more than 70% of my feed. My liked photos have also gone way down since this started. Stop messing with stuff that isn't broken! Just got 15+ ads in one scroll. Really? I would give it 0 stars if I could!
I hate the timeline thing. Why not just put all of the posts in chronological order and leave it at that? Now when I open up Instagram I have no idea where I left off and how many posts I missed. Also, when the app suggests post that I would like to see I often end up seeing the same stupid, noninteresting posts up to 20 times a day. It's ridiculous. I deleted Instagram once before for this bs and I'm probably going to do it again.
Introducing the option to share a replay of your live video to Instagram Stories, so more friends and followers can catch up on what they missed.
- When your broadcast ends, tap “Share” at the bottom of the screen or tap the toggle and choose “Discard.”
- When someone you follow shares a replay, you'll see a play button under their profile photo in the stories bar.
The ability to share and watch replays will be rolling out globally over the coming weeks.
