well I re-downloaded instagram today.
its honestly worse than when I left it. the tab bar buttons keep changing around. They moved the upload and likes tab w/ like shopping tabs. And I notice they change based on which account I'm on. Like they change dynamically. Not w/ each update.
Also its a friendly reminder that targeted ads are gross. I don't think I'll keep it very long, but I do enjoy seeing posts from my friends. But, there has been something special about just finding out stuff from your friends when you hang out instead of from a broadcasted post.
Overall, I feel like I haven't missed much, but I'm giving it another try. Felt great telling Instagram not to track on iOS 14.5 tho. Even though they'll track me a billion other ways.
masto instance for the tildeverse
