Descriptions


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.

    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. Full Review

    Since the news feed is no longer in order I miss so many posts, I don't want to turn on notifications to be able to see things in my news feed. The ads are really distracting, way too many - why not put them on the explore page instead? Also since the update today on Android the app keeps freezing and crashing. Same as Facebook. Is there an interlinked uodate responsible for this? Uninstalling didn't help. Other apps are working fine.. Full Review

    Instagram has gotten worse and worse over the last few months. The reach has absolutely plummeted. I was under the impression if you followed someone then you have shown interest to see their posts? But nope, I find myself missing ridiculous amounts of posts because of the timelines no longer being in chronological order. I will get something from 3 hours ago next to something from 3 days ago? Bit of a joke really. I'll probably be using it less now for it, it's killed the fun of social media for me. Full Review

    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. Full Review

    This app used to be a juggernaut for photographers and other users who banked on the ability to show their work and have a far reach to the supporting community of their respective field. Now, the app is pay to play. Users that but ads have more reach and users that enlist the help of hashtags are shadow banned. Keep in mind the app was built on the idea of hashtags and being able to extend your reach to other users. The new algorithm that shows posts with more interaction first is flawed, leading users to see the same posts over and over again. Even with the post notification option, it is still hard for professional users to interact with their audience in a way that the old algorithm provided. Full Review

    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. Full Review

    Pretty good. WAY better than Facebook. I used Instagram primarily to post goofy pics of my Greyhound, but also to see what my buds have been up to without the accompanying thoughtless, poorly written and unprompted sociopolitical rants that Facebook is know for inspiring. Now with STORIES I occasionally and accidentally click on an infinitely looping video of people doing non-instagram-worthy things (usually) in lame locations. Also, a chronologically sequenced timeline/feed/whatever would be nice. Lastly, I would pay for the ability to block certain hashtags by entering them in the app, so I can stop seeing stuff like "#kardashians" and "#kardashians". I don't know, maybe these are already options and I'm just an idiot. Overall, great app, folks. Good job! Full Review

    I habe started disliking Instagram lately. It's more about adverts and money and less about organic posts. The impressions have gone down drastically. I believe there are a lot of functions of Instagram which are missing on android. Can someone tell me how to give a white border to pics? So that there is a white space when published on the timeline??? Full Review

    I used to love IG. Now I only see what you want me to see. And you keep blocking me for no reason. I can't like or comment on any of the pages I follow. What's the point if I can't do that!? And the ads!!! I am currently deleting everything I like on FB in an effort to stop the ads on IG. You are showing me ads about nothing but rubbish. Not interested. Full Review

    First of all, I hate instagram because there's too much judgements, cyber-bullying and nudity. Second, I have Instagram only to follow cat profiles. Anyways, I have one account for myself, and one for my cats. The one for myself works and I can go in with no problem, but the second for my cats won't work. I can't go in it anymore. It says my internet has a problem, but why am I able to go in my other account and go in other apps and play games? Please fix this. I need my cat account. </3 Full Review

    Glichy. It would be nice if you listened to your community and stopped making updates that no one even wants! You fast destroying Instagram by taking away the best parts and adding gimicks. We don't want fb or snapchat we just want plain simple Instagram. And whats up with the ads? They not even related to the content we follow. We don't want location based ads! If you going to put ads give us content related ads based on our followers. Allow us to post higher quality image's and video. And how about giving content creators a type of adsense? Like youtube Full Review

    Everything was just fine but then I got some trouble when I played a video or story. When it starts, works perfectly fine until the video stopped but the background sound still going. In the end the video and sound itself did not match. Please, fix this. I used to like instagram like everything okay even this app developed so many features that really not that necessarry.. so please, fix this lag or something idk otherwise just delete those new featutes and get back to the old IG. I prefer that. Thx. Full Review

    90% of the time the videos in my feed never play.. doesn't matter if I am on wifi or network.. all the dumb story videos play fine, but you can't get your feed ones to play?! This app is suffering. I mostly use it for editing. Get your game together, this was once a good app.. disappointing, and frustrating. S7 edge, fix it's platform. Full Review

    I love Instagram ,it has so many good ways to interact with people, it provides good options for various things... but my comand is to add more options, for example: the ability to share videos on social media... also the ability to save photos or videos.... these would be really good steps to improve Instagram Full Review

    I can't f***g stand the ads in this app any longer. Every second image is advertising. I have two accounts and it keeps login me out of one or the other whenever it feels like it... This app is getting worse with each update. --- My previous comments were as follows... I suggest colour coding the "events" in the events list to make it easier to differentiate the comments, the likes and the follows. I still don't like that chronological order has been altered. The direct messaging part is still very buggy. Full Review

    After the update, I'm not able to post any videos. Also Instagram stories are not being uploaded. I have a very stable internet connection of 75Mbps so the problem is with Instagram only. The app force closes itself stating "Instagram is not responding". Please look into this issue ASAP. Improve the camera quality for stories in android device. Thanks in advance. Full Review

    I would like instagram more if it hadn't deleted my direct messages so suddenly and without any way to restore them. When I tried to check the help center about this issue I was immediately banned and taken to Facebook's website. ??? I also wish instagram hadn't so poorly tried to copy snapchat with the feature of only being about to look at a photo or video about once or twice. You can't save them to your phone at all and it's very sad. Here's my suggestion, instead of trying to be a cheap knock off of every other app out there, why not be original, take users advice, or at least copy other apps well. Full Review

    In 2014 i gave Instagram a 5 star review, now I'm a very deflated customer with only a 1 star review 3 years on. I used to love instagram, it was my "go to" social media platform, I've always preferred it to facebook or twitter. However, recently i have noticed that my timeline of the users i follow is no longer in chronological order, so i don't see some posts until they are 4 days or a week old. A three day old post might be posted beside a post only 45 minutes old. And dispite having notifications turned on for alerts for some users, I'm not aware of a new post of theirs until i go into the search bar and their name will maybe be listed below with a blue dot beside it saying "2 new posts". Why does it happen like this? Also, I'm no longer able to watch any form of video either, whether it be a posted video or a video on stories, it will not play, it just buffers forever, even on a really strong fibre wifi connection. And the adverts? What are those about? They're all irrelevant. I don't like facebook because of it's stupid advertising and copy & paste nonsense, so I'm disappinted that instagram is heading in the same direction. I am aware that all platforms of social media require revenue, however I'm a 28 year old woman, i don't want or need to see an advert for hair loss shampoo, it's aimed at the completely wrong demographic. Another thing is that on direct message, dispite reading a direct message and replying to that message, i will continue to be notified about that same message for a further 2 days Full Review

    Good, I'm enjoying it..but. Lately I have been getting a lot of people requesting to follow me. I accept it, then I follow them back. The problem is, they then unfollow me and then I have to go through my entire "following" just to unfollow them. Can you please add a list where you can see the people that you are following that aren't following you back! Please! It is really annoying! Thankyou. Full Review

    Just One More Chapter Published date: June 21, 2017

    Dear developers of Instagram... stop with the algorithm shiz... it's not clever, it's not funny, it's not nice!... I want to see my friend's latest photos, I want to see and support the little people! And I want my friends to see me! In our not-so-small corner of Instagram, our #bookstagram community is a blessed thing, but there are so many people who are annoyed by your development they have started to look for another platform, and if you don't do something about it soon you could potentially lose one heck of a lot of users... including me!

    My biggest concern about IG is safety which is the most important thing any SNS should have. Anybody can make anybody's fake ID and they have done the formality of adding a feature that lets you report that the person is pretending to be you but that's all about it. They don't bother to do anything. Moreover, you cannot contact them. I tried all the ways I could but they don't bother to reply. Really disappointed Full Review

    I used to love instagram most than any other social media... now am facing problems with it.

    What I've always wondered is that when I go to request to follow someone, later on it changes back to the follow button. Another thing I'm wondering is when I request to follow, it immediately changes back to the follow button 😐😮. Lastly is that how do I know whether someone has blocked me? I also wonder if that happens when there is a big as I tried requesting someone from school and it said they accepted and when I went into Instagram it said she hasn't and I couldn't request to follow her again as it wouldn't request again Full Review

    I can't stress enough how much I miss viewing my feed in chronological order. You should make it optional, instead of pushing your developers ideas on us. Aside from that, my IG was working fine until last week. I cannot find friends when I want to mention them in a comment. I have to enter their exact handle, which is ridiculous! What did you guys do that screwed this up?! Full Review

    It's a great app, and easy to use. My sister and I both thought of an idea: when in the profile interface where you're looking at someone else's account, on every picture there should be a heart icon on like the bottom left. If it's transparent, you haven't liked the picture, and if it's filled in red, you have. Full Review

    Sick of this app catering to people with thousands of followers. It's no longer about sharing and connecting with others, it's about making money and advertising and superficiality. Bring back the chronological order or at least give us the option to choose to see the most recent posts, and get rid of the ads!!! They're too frequent and generally irrelevant. Will be deleting soon if things don't change. Full Review

    The use of the non-chronological algorithm should be optional, add a button for activating/ deactivating it. It doesn't work for me.

    This app is good, but it has so many glitches that aren't on iPhone. And that makes me mad. On iPhone you can crop/send full screen pictures to your DM's. Android cannot even crop the photo before you send it. And also, with stories. You can't upload vieeos from your gallery to your story, it just loads forever and never works. And it's really annoying that Android doesn't have the same things on iPhone Full Review
