Instagram's New Feed

Sounding like an exhausted parent, Mosseri agreed that Instagram’s new feed sucked and its recommendations might be bad and then told us it wasn’t going to get better. Instagram no longer cares about photos.

I don't know if people are just upset because something they're used to changes, but I'm not happy with Instagram showing me lots of videos and reels from people I don't know. For some reason, the algorithm has decided that I like watching baseball videos. No, I don't.

My usecase for Instagram is quite sepcific. I use it mostly to just look at pretty pictures of bicycles :) If you want to see pictures of a specific bike and you know the model and brand, it's a lot easier to find pictures from Instagram than from Google image search.
