  1. I forget IG exists half the time, TikTok really dragged them out to the trash. I wonder what Zuck's next move will be.
     
  2. People Saving your posts with the little checkmark or sharing your posts (particularly to their story) helps. And posting a variety of things - not just normal posts, but also IGTVs and Reels also helps.

  4. I deleted Instagram in January because New Year New Me and I can’t believe how easy I am finding it? I don’t miss it at all and not seeing shirtless gays every blinking second of the day has been tremendous for my mental health. I know I could’ve just unfollowed them (and I did) but the algorithm always found a way to sneak them into my discovery page or recommendations.

    The only downside is the fact that I am now reading the news a lot more and that’s equally as soul draining with all the doom and gloom.

  5. I haven't liked any thirst pics in 2-3 months (who has the urge duing winter!) and now my discovery page is just cats, monkeys and drag queens plus clothes and sneakers.

  7. I just follow nature and animal accounts, so I've never had to see most of the crap on Instagram.
     
  8. I think if you used them for all time it doesn't matter but if you just started with them, it helps (I do so with my vinysta)

  11. I deleted Twitter and Facebook last year (honestly, it’s been BLISS!!!) and I’m considering getting rid of Instagram now too. I hardly post on my main grid and whenever I go on it it’s just tiktok videos being reposted or memes. Gah, is this what growing up is like?!

    Honestly deleting the Instagram app and just using the browser version has made all the difference for me. No invasive ads, only seeing posts from people I follow, no notifications at all times of day....it's bliss.

    I deleted all my apps back in December and it's been so...cool. I find myself out and about and more active away from my devices, besides my iMac check-in's here during the day. Less bothersome overall.

  18. I was wondering if anyone else has been having issues with the "Switch to the App" links when viewing instagram on other applications or Safari; I have an iPhone and those links haven't been working for months now (clicking on them just takes me to Instagram's App Store page), but I can't seem to find anything about it being an issue for others, or how to fix it.
