Ratings and Reviews
In the great big crowd of social media apps, Instagram continues to stand out for a reason: it makes sharing moments with everyone in your world easy, speedy, and fun. Whether you’re posting breathtaking vacation photos tweaked with one of dozens of cool image filters or a video clip of an insane concert, Instagram’s uncluttered accessibility has kept it at the top of the social-sharing heap.
Digging Itself a Hole
I’ve been a long time Instagram user and have always enjoyed my time on the app. However the updates in recent years have started to make the app pretty... non-defendable. The most recent rage inducing update was the installation of the shopping tab and the “reels” feature, and the following rearrangement of instagram’s layout. The shopping tab wouldn’t be so bad if it wasn’t being forced down our throats by replacing the likes and mentions tab. Now the reels feature. From what i’ve seen, the reels tab is only used to upload tiktoks and seldom used to upload original “reels”, ultimately making the feature useless. It would also be tolerable if it hadn’t replaced the “post a picture” button, and if Instagram would stop trying to shove the feature into everyone’s face by forcibly turning portrait videos into reels. Don’t even get me started on the problem that is removing the sharing feature on the app. Yeah, on January 8th you won’t be able to send posts straight to people’s DM’s. I personally believe this will be the final nail on Instagram’s own coffin that they’ve been building for themselves over the years, that started long ago when they removed chronological posts. Instagram is trying to be OTHER apps rather than be its OWN unique entity to keep up with the trends, thus neglecting to make new and creative features.
Ok, Instagram has always been my second favorite social media platform mainly because it is so diverse. It splits everyone’s posts equally to where you can see fresh posts on your favorite topics through the explore page and also can be introduced to new ones. Instagram has a very big community lying right in the middle of it’s app, which is the show/movie fandom. These people (including me) enjoy varieties of content for our favorite films, and of course the main aspect of our fandom are edits. Don’t ask me why they’re so entertaining, but they take up a special part of my happiness (not much). Instagram is one of the number one platforms for the content and serves it well. Well, not always. I love making edits, but unfortunately, the quality is so bad it might’ve made the whole point of view through my eyes better than 4K ultra HD (and I momentarily started wearing contacts!) It is SO bad at times where you wonder if this is the same video you were looking to post. Almost like Instagram put a blur effect over it. So, Instagram, hear me out, your whole quality gimmick causes a real pain in the back for some of these editors who make great edits, but end up not getting views for a bad quality they don’t have control over. Please fix it so After Effects isn’t the only app with a show-stopping quality because I quite literally gouged my eyes out from crumbling through the stress. Thank you.
