No more being nosey because Instagram has officially removed the following tab from their app and people are mad!


For the longest, Instagram has had the following tab where users could go and see what pictures their followers are liking. But now, Instagram users are in their feelings as that tab is no longer there.

That means no more stalking your crush and no more fights in relationships which could actually be for the better!

This summer, Instagram was on a purge of features that they felt were no longer necessary to the user’s experience.

“People didn’t always know that their activity is surfacing,” Instagram’s head of product, Vishal Shah said. “So you have a case where it’s not serving the use case you built it for, but it’s also causing people to be surprised when their activity is showing up.”

While it sounds like a good thing, Instagram users took to their Twitter accounts to express their disappointment!
