Instagram. It’s a fickle ol’ thing these days – and the source of a great deal of debate amongst bloggers. After seeing drama over bots, shadowbans and a lot of despair over the algorithm the way I see the app has changed quite a lot. So today I thought I’d talk about what I think of all these things and also my plans for using Instagram in the future.
I just want to say first off that I am a huge fan of Instagram. I even did my bloody dissertation on it! I love discovering the different niches and communities that exist on it and also the creative challenge of curating a feed of images. That hasn’t changed – I still love using Instagram. But it isn’t what it used to be, and well, we all have to accept that.
