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 Getting tagged by a stranger in the comments

I've been having this problem a lot lately - jameshoward

Its really anyoing

This is creepy

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

2 Fan accounts

I use Instagram now but only to look at Marilyn Manson's posts.

This is why I decided to make an account about myself instead of a fan account, because you are just taking photos of celebs from the internet.

This doesn't give me any idea of what I am doing

I have a fan acc and they are to support the person by the way but yeah I get how they are annoing anyway not all of us are

3 Slow loading

It always takes so long

Loads so long; restarts 100+ times :(((

4 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

5 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

6 Pointless selfies

That's why I don't have instagram

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

7 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

I love shout out they dah best - Jada

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

These kinda suck sometimes - MLPFan

9 "Couldn't Load Media"

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

10 Kim Kardashian Kim Kardashian Kimberly Noel "Kim" Kardashian West is an American reality television personality, actress, socialite, businesswoman and model.

I told you I don't look at her I ONLY LOOK AT MARILYN MANSON'S PROFILE!

117 m followers for the huge ass thot? THIS WORLD HAS GONE NUTS!

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

The Contenders

11 "Couldn't Refresh Feed"
12 Stupid challenges
13 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

14 Food pictures

I remember I had dinner with my friend and he was about to take a photo of his food. And I was like "Oh why? " He said "To remember what I had today" I was thinking for myself "Nobody cares what you eat" - Kjellalbintomas

My grandmother does this

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

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

27 People yelling and having temper tantrums on camera
28 #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

42 Some Spread Hate

I hope some actually understands what I'm trying to say here but are we also gonna have to deal the fact there are some people here who are just terrible, no common sence at all, like they would spread hate even in such a big crowd, and most all they don't make sence at all like no reason on why you are hating the lgbtq+ or different cultures for example, some are just I don't know mocking other people, art thieves, people sliding into your dms for sexual content in some reason, and those who wont stop spamming a specific tag or fandom, I mean they need to stop
