Permit me to vent a little about something that a lot of other people have complained about in the past few weeks. I’m talking about the weird changes to Instagram. No, not just the Snapchat clone face filters. I’m referring to the aggressive change to the algorithm that has made it harder for me to see content from people I follow, and also has greatly impacted engagement on smaller accounts like my own.
It’s discouraging to say the least, and when searching for answers about why this is happening, I’ve come upon various posts accusing Instagram of turning more into an ad platform instead of a creative outlet.
I know, I know. It’s a free service and nothing on the Internet is ever truly “free.” But hell, I would pay a little for a premium version with fewer ads and the ability to view my feed chronologically! Other people keep coming up with ideas to “beat” the algorithm, and it seems pointless to try to do so anyway. I suppose I should just focus on doing the best I can, and posting good photos and hopefully, it will work out.
