Last night, Instagram removed the 'following' option from the activity tab where you could see what other people were up to - a move that wasn't exactly appreciated by the users.
did instagram really take away its following activity tab, how the FUCK am I suppose to know shit now— Rachel (@rachhhhc3) October 8, 2019
Why has Instagram removed “following activity” how the fuck am I going to see when me lad who’s not me lad is being sly liking other girls pics now?! 🤡— Bethany (@betht8x) October 8, 2019
Obviously, stalking isn't ideal or encouraged, but being able to see other people's activity was half the point of Instagram.
Now, what am I supposed to do? Just put my picture and that's it? Phir kya? How many times will I check the likes and comments on my own post?
Not gonna lie, I spent more time on the following tab than I did on my timeline.
Of course, to quench my thirst for information - like, when someone hearts 6 pictures of another person in one go obviously something is going on yaar come on.
If Instagram is removing the “following” tab, how the FUCK am I gonna know who’s liking who’s photos from 2016????? pic.twitter.com/86qDoW8Yhk— AMANDA (@amandaaamegan) October 8, 2019
But besides that, I also discovered many new interesting pages and accounts. It's Insta culture dude.
No one goes and asks their followers 'oye naya page batana?' Kya page bataega insaan off the bat?
#instagram sucks. Useless and stupid changes no one asked for!!! I want my following activity back!! For the record, I never stalked anyone, I just got ideas and inspiration from that. Thanks for taking it away from us. pic.twitter.com/Hx0YYwZBFX— arabella (@homewardove) October 8, 2019
And what about me getting to know things about my crush because I don't have the confidence to talk, haan?
What about that? Does Instagram realise it ruined relationships before they could even start?
No, because apparently, the feature wasn't 'used by people'. Who are these people exactly? I don't know one such 'people'.
As soon as I saw the following tab gone after the fking update, I literally wanna just uninstall Instagram, what’s the point of using it if I can’t even see my friends activity #bringbackfollowtab @instagram you are downgraded your app not update— Ahony12 (@Ahony12) October 8, 2019
