Change your algorithm. You claim that it will get people more likes so that more followers can see it. Obviously that isn't true because I lose 200 likes per photo if I were to compare my page's performance last year. It makes no sense either because I have 7,500 followers, all real, mostly active, and my photo quality has gotten better. Change it back.
The new changes to the hashtag system is terrible. All the power is going to the popular posts and for us smaller groups trying to build something just get tossed to the bottom and forgotten about. I love Instagram and I was building up to make something great and meaningful to help people in a real way but now all my posts are only liked by whoever out of my followers get to see my posts. The power in your app has massively decreased since you have made this change. I still give Instagram a four star for what you have already given us but now I just hope you can balance this out a bit better so that everyone can have a voice in this creative space.
Not a bad app, great for exposure to new artists and to help share art. Wish the community/social aspect was stronger, with less people just liking things and more interaction. I am also confused and disappointed that my account doesn't have access to the multi photo slideshow posts, while other accounts do. No explanation about why some get it and others don't. It is a fun tool but it could always see improvement.
I deleted Facebook for a reason, Facebook likes to ruin everything it touches. Please remove the algorithm. Please fix everything. I wanna decide what I see. Not being forced to see what you guys want. This is not what I signed up for when making an instagram 4 Years ago. You will lose a lot of people if you keep making changes that are not what we AS PEOPLE signed up for. I used to love instagram. But it seems like you really don't care anymore and will do anything for money. I should of seen this coming.
This is a fun way to share with friends and family especially with the Facebook and Twitter links. My only complaint is that I have not found a way to toggle between two different accounts without logging out and logging back in. There needs to be a business Instagram that is a separate app or there needs to be a way to tab between two different accounts without logging out of either one. I have to say that if it were easier to use with two accounts I would use it much more often.
I deleted everything else, besides Instagram. Snapchat, Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, they're all gone. Because I personally think that Instagram covers everything you'd use social media for. There's chatting, so you can communicate with friends privately. There's uploading of pictures (and now you can upload multiple at once). There's captions for you to express something the picture doesn't capture. There's insta-story, so you don't need Snapchat anymore. And now there's Insta Live, where you can livestream yourself doing something you want to share without having to break it into one-minute videos. That's another thing, you can upload videos. How beneficial! And you can also access multiple accounts at once, how convinient! I absolutely love Instagram. Favorite social media app ever.
New: You can share up to 10 photos and videos in one post on Instagram.
* When uploading to your feed, you’ll see a new icon to select multiple photos and videos.
* Tap and hold to change the order.
* Apply a filter to everything at once or edit one by one.
* In feed, swipe through to see them all.
This feature will be rolling out globally over the next few weeks.
