Of #INSTAPANIC and today’s flight attendant outfit.
Oh my, sweeties, yesterday was all about a hell lotta panic on Instagram, right? Did you notice how everyone went crazy over NOTHING? How everyone asked you to turn on those push notifications for their accounts (yes, those notifications that you had already turned off for all your apps over a year ago). Well, and it was all because some people thought that Instagram would change dramatically over night – this night. Changing the algorithm from chronological to like- and follow-based. And what did happen, in fact? Nothing. Was it the end of the world? No.
I, for my part, spent yesterday telling people that asking their followers to turn on their push notifications for their account was madness. Nicely I did tell them, but also profoundly. Just an example: I follow about 500 accounts on Instagram. If I turned on notifications for all those accounts, my phone wouldn’t stop flashing up anymore and I’d simply go mad. Or my battery would die first. One of the two. And what if someone posted more than 4 pics a day?! I’d be close to unfollowing them just because they’d annoy the hell out of me. So anyway, I tried to tell people that turning on push notifications wouldn’t change a thing in the new algorithm.
And now, Instagram even said that it was only a testing phase and they’d still have to decide whether they should introduce it after all and if they should, in which countries it would make sense. So for now, NO NEED TO PANIC! It’s all not that terrible after all and by the way, the world is taking place out there and not inside Instagram.
Out there, where spring will be coming real soon with warm temperatures and sun. I really can’t wait and then, I will definitely be wearing this all blue outfit again. How do you like my look?
