    I deleted Instagram from my phone last week. I've kept the account and can check it via a browser but the extra step has kept me off it for the most part. I found myself on Instagram for no apparent reason, infinitely scrolling absolute garbage and not actually looking at the stuff I am interested in. It's like when you check your watch and immediately have no idea what time it is. Just a completely mindless act for me that felt like it was sucking time from the life in front of me. The irony of writing about the perils of IG while typing on a forum for grown person baby dolls is not lost on me :) But I'd rather waste time here than on a Meta product.

    I prefer using a web interface instead of an app, it gives me one more layer of insulation between me and the companies that own those social media platforms. (However, I still can't bring myself to delete the Instagram app from my phone.)

    Remember endlessly flipping through cable, doing nothing but watching junk for a few seconds. Now instagram has found a way to recreate the act after cable cutting. That's what the explore feed is, the new cable.

    Can’t blame people for “cutting the cord,” haha. I don’t know how long it’s been since I’ve opened IG. I have a lot of people I need to get back to, and I really should do that, but IG feels like an ad platform/doomscrolling app now. Not that I didn’t scroll for hours years back, but at least I was having fun looking at toys, not ads and suggested posts.

    still lots of value for me in it. The constant migration to the flavor of the month is dismaying; connections get severed and info gets lost.

    I'm so frustrated at Instagram, if you look up a hashtag now on my phone it shows me "Top Posts" or I can switch it to "Recent Top Posts". WHERE ARE REGULAR RECENT POSTS?!! I like seeing posts from regular people, not just popular ones…

    Same thing happened to me. I can only see the "top" posts. Regular recent post came back for awhile then disappeared. Checked across multiple devices, but same result. My guess is that IG doesn't like it when you login from multiple devices and choose not to "trust" that login across all the devices. Bummer, as I really miss access to seeing all of the old #butanohana posts, especially to jog my memory for sequential releases :|

    same for me for months, I very rarely post anything there anymore. #searching was my main reason for joining in the first place.

    It's a real shame. I'm not sure what social media I should use for art/sofubi anymore. Facebook is stale, Twitter is full of assholes arguing, Instagram just promotes popular posts, and TikTok is full of 10 year olds. I feel like there's nowhere to go. At least SB still exists.

    Instagram is still the place for sofubi, IMO.

    I absolutely hate that you can’t simply search hashtags and sort chronologically anymore. :x

    Yeah, that bugs me too, but I have found subscribing to hashtags does put new posts in your feed. I also wonder if the better search functionality is only available for business accounts these days.
