Instagram’s recent blunders

Recently, Instagram has decided to copy half of tik tok’s features - this includes their ‘reels’, which are just incredibly annoying and out of sync with the rest of the app. I preferred instagram’s old saving method where you could hold down the save option icon and add a video to multiple save section folders, OVER the new way of saving, which is to press the three dots at the top of the video and select save and THEN add to a collection, meaning you can only add the video to one collection, unless you want to spend the time going all the way to the other collections you wanted the post in and going into its settings and adding the post manually. Tik tok actually has (imo) a worse saving system anyways, so Instagram copying it is a very strange and annoying move. Also, Instagram is forcing every video posted to be a reel, unless of-course it’s a multiple media post - which in turn people often feel forced to post, instead of a one picture/video post, as to avoid the post being a reel. This can be annoying in itself as Instagram doesn’t show the amount of views on a multi image/video post, only the amount of likes. Instagram, please stop trying to copy tik tok and listen to what your users actually want. It’s not reels.

Not as good as used to be, becoming bias

I always enjoyed using Instagram, for me it was a good platform to express my creativity until Instagram became bias and stopped giving everyone the same user experience. On my account, both personal and business I’m not able to edit my reels anymore, rearrange clips. I had this option for maybe a month and then it miraculously disappeared. I got excited thinking that’s a new feature I was always missing until I found out that some users / accounts were able to do that all along. It’s not giving every user equal opportunities so to speak. I don’t mind it becoming more of a video platform but the problem is that I can’t even edit my clips. I feel very limited and I think it’s just discrimination. Perhaps based on how many followers you have and etc. Why some users are able to have additional options and others don’t? It’s not a bug, or a phone and etc. I’ve updated my app, installed and uninstalled it, nothing’s changed. It all started with this whole ‘likes’ experiment. Some accounts were able to see likes some not and etc. Now they’re experimenting on people with reels. It’s beyond disappointing. If you want people to keep using it, more engagement then give everyone same tools. Otherwise everyone will move on to different apps and Instagram will be left with a limited amount of users and demographics.

Removing sound control was a mistake

Yes, like others I don’t like the new layout, and agree forcing to make a reel to post a video is a ridiculous decision. But we’ll get used to it I guess. However, removing the ability to mute videos across the app and forcing users to use the volume control - which controls volume for OUR ENTIRE PHONE - is ridiculous. Why should I have to stop listening to my music while scrolling (because, dear IG developers, turning down the sound on our phones means we can’t view IG while listening to our music because we’ve had to turn the main volume down….how could this not be realised?!?), or have to remember to turn my volume back up once I leave the app? Or have to quickly turn down the volume lest annoy those around me because a reel (generally one that is a misguided advertisement I’m not interested in anyway) starts playing and I don’t have my headphones on.

Please, return the app specific ability to mute sound instead of taking the pretty aggressive and somewhat egotistical approach where users have to adjust their entire phone for this one app.

Also remember this was a photography forward app. If you want an app to rival TikTok then for Pete’s sake just make one, don’t repurpose this one. But as that will fall on deaf ears at least listen to the masses of people about the sound control. That was really a poor decision.
