Top 10 Worst Things About Instagram

I love Instagram but there are also things about it that just make me angry.

The Top Ten

1 Algorithm change

I'm not even allowed on social media for at least another two months. Plus I've always hated selfies, trends, awkward slang, and people that beg for followers. I mean I don't know if Wattpad is a social media network, but a couple of people did this to me and I followed them because I was like,"okay fine, as long as I don't get bothered by you anymore", but other than that I don't follow people like that. I actually earn my followers and usually I end up following someone that I think is interesting and multiple times they do it back. Anyway yeah I agree with this list. - Anonymousxcxc

Instagram announced that they will no longer be chronological. It will only show posts in the order of what they think interests you. That's right. It's going the Facebook route. I don't know why they are doing this but I am not happy about it. - MegaSoulhero

I broke my lamp, whoops. - EliHbk

Why are they doing this? I think this should be an optionary change and not a obligatory one. - Martinglez

2 Getting tagged by a stranger in the comments

You won't believe how many times this has happened to me. I always get tagged by some stranger under a post about buying more followers. Whenever this happens, I just block that person. I'm really starting to get sick of it. - MegaSoulhero

This is really my annoying and you could get your account hacked - Ajkloth

This sometimes happens to me. I never follow him/her. - Martinglez

that sucks

This guy has more followers than he deserves. That's all I have to say about that. - MegaSoulhero

I swear this guy is becoming a filler item for bad lists. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

Luckily, he deleted his Instagram

So...? - AlphaQ

4 Shout outs

In my opinion everyone should just let their followers come in naturally and not ask for followers. If some one wants to follow you then they'll follow you, It's a shame it got to the point where they had apps, and people were buying pages, and where people were so called giving away items for following people. - TiannaBossChix

You know, the fun of getting Instagram followers is actually EARNING your followers! If someone just tells people to go follow a certain account, that account just gets followed by a bunch of strangers that could stalk your account. - MegaSoulhero

The strangers tagging me on photos about followers isn't nearly as bad and as annoying at this. These are just desperate and stupid.

I love shout out they dah best - Jada

5 Trends for each day of the week

#ManCrushMonday #WomanCrushWednesdsy #ThrowbackThursday
These are examples of trends that people came up with for absolutely no reason. Why would anyone want to know who you have a crush on and why does their have to be a specific day to let people know? These trends just keep coming and coming. People are coming up with more ideas for trends. It's getting really annoying. - MegaSoulhero

#Man CrushMonday
This is just a way for female to be a hoe and post a different dude on her page every monday, then thy wonder why they single.

Mostly women does this and all it is is posting an old picture of yourself and posting a picture of you now. It makes no since to me at all.To me it's just letting strangers ee all of you personal because you're dumb enough to put it out there.

A way for men to "cheat" on their women (if they have one)

Same as transformation tuesday

It's the same as transformation tuesday and throwback thurssday

This generation is just brain washed by social media to the point where, they are putting all their personal business out their and not giving a who sees it. - TiannaBossChix

6 Food pictures

Well, it's come to the point where you have completely run out of ideas of what to post. So you just walk into a restaurant, order a meal, and you just have to let the world know that you are about to eat something. Shocking! Actually, I'd be lying if I said I haven't done this before. - MegaSoulhero

To be fair, food can be gorgeous and a defining purpose of photography is to preserve the fleeting beauty of the world.

And also because I spend like, 67% of my free time watching Tasty videos and looking at food. - keycha1n

Just eat the damn food already

#EatingSoupWhileOnTheTopTens! lol dawg yolo! - KingFab

7 Fan accounts

There are many people who make accounts filled with posts of their favorite celibrites. What is the point of that? Most of the followers can just Google search the name of a celebrity and find pictures of them. - MegaSoulhero


8 "Couldn't Load Media"

I click on a post notification and this pops up. IT'S SO ANNOYING!

9 "Couldn't Refresh Feed"
10 Kim Kardashian Kim Kardashian Kimberly Noel "Kim" Kardashian West is an American reality television personality, actress, socialite, businesswoman and model.

There's absolutely no reason this moron deserves 109 million followers. She deserves ZERO followers if you ask me. - railfan99

The Newcomers

? Comment Section Algorithm

Instagram recently made a change where the COMMENTS are now not in chronological order. THAT is awful. I don't mind the timeline being like that but not the comments! - railfan99

The Contenders

11 Updates


12 #nofilter

Nice try but we all know no one can be that beautiful. People often post pictures of themselves or of something and claim that it is an unedited picture. Most of the time they are lying just to raise their self-esteem. - MegaSoulhero

13 This story is no longer available

Why does this happen?

14 Pointless selfies

I am so bored that I think I'm just gonna post a picture of myself just making a weird face in the bathroom and see how many likes it gets. - MegaSoulhero

Are we so narcissistic that we feel the urge to take a picture of ourselves all the bloody time?

Oh man and then there's some cheesy or passive-aggressive quote as the caption. Gah, it makes me so uncomfortable. - keycha1n

15 Instaporn

Boobies everywherw - AlphaQ

16 #like4like

When people are so desperate to get a lot of likes on their posts, they convince people that if you like their post, they will give you a like. This isn't always the case. I've seen posts with this hashtag and when I liked their posts, nothing happened. They never liked any of my posts. I hate how desperate most people can be. - MegaSoulhero

And they look so stupid in front of their plates haha stupid and funny - Melody74

17 Videos taking too long to buffer
18 People posting suicide videos

I think that people who do this should immediately be treated from parents to psychological help I went through this phase at one time.

19 Satisfying videos
20 Live videos
21 Verified users are immune to reports
22 Sexy teenagers

Just top off disgusting behavior.

You'll literally find a lot of sexualized 17-19-year-olds on IG. It's quite sad and pathetic really. - Aragorn98

Absolutely ☺😧😧 and they think they are all that.

23 Copyright claims

Instagram did something a while ago when you post something with music in it Instagram won’t let you post it because it has copyrighted music. SMH - railfan99
