  • Royce__Valencia Royce Da 6'3 (@Royce__Valencia) reported

    @instagram You put pics I don't want to see to the top of my feed forcing me to scroll far to find good posts. I can't be bothered so I close it before finding them. Your algorithm thinks the bad posts are all I want to see because it hides everything good super far down. Broken algorithm.

  • palenaroyale Alena🖤 (@palenaroyale) reported

    @instagram Here’s an idea to fix the rumors and make people happier about the feed. GO BACK TO CHRONOLOGICAL ORDER. The personalized feed is bullshit and none of us want it

  • Lukascain95 Lukas (@Lukascain95) reported

    Most people are working out to become stronger, leaner, or to become Instagram famous. I'm just trying to make my stomach and legs small enough to not be embarrassed when I don't fit on rollercoasters.

  • philip_king Philip King (@philip_king) reported

    @instagram The problem is your algorithm doesn't work, I have to scroll through to find the posts I'm most interested in. Just put it back to chronological order.

  • tweeterniss God&Country (@tweeterniss) reported

    @terri911065 @noway_nohow7 @irish_za Right now Facebook and Instagram have a bigger problem with videos like this and worse because its more rampant on those platforms [child p@rn] predation. Kids are seeing tragic videos of other kids being abused and trying to alert people but so far the platforms have not been 👇

  • CalloutCompany Callout Company (@CalloutCompany) reported

    @BecauseImPK @instagram Retweeting for visibility. Tech companies like @instagram are notoriously bad about this. Their 'cost cutting' translates to terrible service for everyone else. Part of the issue is that they know there's no alternatives to their network effects.

  • ibrahimjunaidii ibrahim (@ibrahimjunaidii) reported

    @anghilex See @ftnnssr the problem is not the type of phone used, it's instagram itself

  • Azfura Cap’n Azfura (@Azfura) reported

    If anybody knows how to use Instagram well. I have my main account and a side account. My main account has a bunch of other options when I make a story (polls, questions, etc) and my other account doesn’t. How do I fix this

  • itsjamila_ Jamila Wright (@itsjamila_) reported

    Instagram has made me so judgmental. I hate working in digital marketing sometimes lol

  • Midnahx3 Midnah (@Midnahx3) reported

    @instagram My feed is constantly clogged by the people I engage with the LEAST 100%. If I even see a post from a close friend of mine It's day late, maybe even a week +. Fix your algorithms because you guys have gone full stupid.

  • SoyIvanSilva Ivan Silva ◬ (@SoyIvanSilva) reported

    @instagram Hello, I wanted to report a bug in "close friend" my iphone does not detect that my account has that feature enabled, but on other Android devices if it works, I'm not the only person reporting this problem, I hope your answer thank you.

  • russell_ambriz Russell Ambriz (@russell_ambriz) reported

    @UniverseIce Better fix they're Instagram bugs freezes all the time

  • KaveriRawal Kaveri Rawal (@KaveriRawal) reported

    @instagram so you only respond when money is offered to you, users can simply be told to get lost with their issues.

  • LindseyVetter Lindsey Porter (@LindseyVetter) reported

    Hey @instagram fix the glitch with instagram stories. The static noise is really annoying. You would think it would be taken care of by now with the amount of people who have complained about it. #fixit #getittogether #Instagram

  • evergreentwete evergreen twetes (@evergreentwete) reported

    @ryangrim I think what’s actually happening with google is that search advertising works and display advertising does not. Facebook is a different issue. What’s happening there is people are spending a lot of time on instagram instead of reading digital media.

  • MissAmberMadrid Melanin Monroe (@MissAmberMadrid) reported

    Had someone on my Instagram voluntarily admit to enjoying pickle backs and smh. The world is far more broken than I could have ever imagined.

  • tyra_tm7 athierah (@tyra_tm7) reported

    The problem is, our virtual flirting skills fall apart in the flesh. By the time the first date happens, traditional conversation starters - what you do, where u're from, what you ate for breakfast last sunday - have already been answered by google and gap-filled by instagram.

  • FreshEggsDaily Lisa Steele (@FreshEggsDaily) reported

    @instagram If it ain't broke, don't fix it. Oh wait ..you just broke it. Can you please FIX it! Chronological order please.

  • ryansugly ryansugly (@ryansugly) reported

  • nivenus Nivenus (@nivenus) reported

    @lovelylippie21 When I replied initially I was getting off a treadmill, which I use while updating my work Instagram since I have to use my phone to do that and it gives me an excuse to procrastinate a little while working out.

  • djzentura DJ Zentura (@djzentura) reported

    And @Instagram FIX YOUR SHIT!!! The Android App FREEZES CONSTANTLY at startup!!! #Instagram #InstagramFail

  • Xlilyvictoriax Lily 🍃 (@Xlilyvictoriax) reported

  • Travaj12Johnson Travis johnson (@Travaj12Johnson) reported

    @CoburnJacob Coming from the guy who had to get rid of a diesel because he couldn’t handle it😂 if I post it on my Snapchat it can go on Instagram for everyone to see and I would never have an issue..

  • stupidOwO ark🥵 (@stupidOwO) reported

    I opened a video on Instagram w the audio on full volume and low ******* played! She had no problem scaring me and mom thought I was on the phone

  • luc9488 Luc Luxton (@luc9488) reported

    @gruber @ShawnKing I heard from a friend who had a photo selected for a previous “shot on iPhone” campaign that they they had ad agencies sourcing the content through Instagram and Flickr and were paying $1000 per image to the photographer so I don’t think legal is the issue

  • tpetes15 taylor (@tpetes15) reported

    Bought $10 teeth whiteners off Amazon and the instructions are in broken English and there's a slight burning sensation after each use but my teeth are appoarching "I edited this Instagram while drunk" whiteness so I guess I'll just keep using them until my teeth fall out

    Instagram loaded at school today (which never happens) so I got to see Key and Seventeen and Red Velvet I spent a good 5 minutes just being like "wow I love them!" before I started working it was a good time!!!

  • WordGirlSam Jane Sellman (@WordGirlSam) reported from Overlea, Maryland

    @instagram What would be really nice is if you would notice the uptick in complaints about Instagram not working. Hanging. Sometimes not opening at all. And do not tell me to restart my phone. Address this.

  • KevingerardT Kevin Gerard (@KevingerardT) reported

    The thing is, I can listen to Kacey Musgraves Slow Burn in the shower, shopping for produce, walking to work, scrolling though a guy who ghosted me Instagram page and baby, I’ll feel...SOMETHING!!
