Instagram is a simple way to capture and share the world’s moments. Follow your friends and family to see what they’re up to, and discover accounts from all over the world that are sharing things you love. Join the community of over 500 million people and express yourself by sharing all the moments of your day––the highlights and everything in between, too.
Use Instagram to:
* Post photos and videos you want to keep on your profile grid. Edit them with filters and creative tools and combine multiple clips into one video.
* Share multiple photos and videos (as many as you want!) to your story. Bring them to life with text and drawing tools. They disappear after 24 hours and won't appear on your profile grid or in feed.
* Go live to connect with your friends and followers right now. When you're done, live stories disappear.
* Send disappearing photos and videos, text messages and posts from your feed to groups and friends with Instagram Direct.
* Watch stories and live videos from the people you follow in a bar at the top of your feed.
* Discover stories, photos and videos you might like and follow new accounts on the Explore tab.
* Enable Handoff to switch between your Apple Watch and your iPhone.

Fixing what isn't broken until it is!
This latest update renders what was once my favorite social media app into sheer chaos! Take away the reply buttons in the comments! It's messy and unnecessary!! Allowing people to like comments is a addition that just adds more notifications which nobody wants! If people like my comments they will @ with a appropriate emoticon or simply chuckle privately. I don't need to know that they liked my comment.
Restore chronological order! When I opened my app this morning I had 10 pictures that I saw days ago at the top of my feed. Pictures should be seen in real time! Especially from shops and stores, the items had long been sold, seeing them at the top of my feed was simply salt in the wound.
Now travel pictures, graduations, parties will be out of order. People will see that she said yes, before they even see him getting on one knee. Please restore this once efficient, delightful app to its former minimalist glory and stop chasing after every other platform. Nobody will ever use just one social media platform. Their differences allow us to use them all. Instagram's was chronological pictorial storytelling. Let's get back to basics, please!
Where is the cronological option?!?!
I would surely like for the directors or whoever to allow the developers to give us more user options for this app. After 5 or 6 years of using this app, I no longer use it.
Things such as timely, organized, and simple design are appreciated by many. I don't want to see posts from hours or days ago at the top. I am more than willing and able to scroll down to see older posts when I want to. I also don't want to see popular posts of a certain hashtag. I want to be able to browse through all photos with a particular hashtag. Posts shouldn't be hidden if the user doesn't want them hidden. To me it appears as if IG only wants to be advertiser friendly and block people from even seeing real life issues or news during the time it happened. I sense a lack of care for the users of this app and their real time connections with others. I would love for some of us to hear directly from the developers about addressing some of our concerns. Unless you don't mind, I wouldn't recommend downloading an app that continues to ignore a good percentage of their users (despite the rating of this app). Ello looks to be a great alternative if the company grows....just saying
I have been on IG for a few years now. Some of the changes I don't like, but overall I'm still a fan! I have two accounts, one personal - and one for my vintage business. I love being able to easily keep up with family & friends around the world. I also like interacting with customers and making new business connections through my business account.
That being said...NOT a fan of the algorithm. I agree with the chorus of voices when I say that 'I think you should change it back'. Everyone complains about missing posts and I agree! I follow 4,000 ppl and only the same ones (maybe my top 100) will show up in my feed. Something isn't right about that.
I do like some of the other changes. And I think as any company tries to stay up to date there's always going to be a certain amount of trial & error. IG is entitled to that, but only as long as they scrap what isn't working & improve on what is! Overall--- thank you for a great app!!!
