The Breakfast Club Says Instagram Sucks Now and After The Kardashian Backlash, The 'Gram Pulls Back From the Algorithm That Mimics Tik Tok

Recording their first loss in revenue during the second quarter of 2022, Instagram instituted some updates to their algorithm in July that changed the social media app to perform more like Tik Tok. The parent company Meta has backtracked on some of the updates. Why? Because the Kardashians (Kim and sister Kylie) had had enough! Check out what Charlamagne tha God, Angela Yee, and DJ Envy had to say about in their Front Page News above. 

But not all of the updates are gone. Instagram CEO Adam Mosseri is saying its users are driving these changes with the sharing of more and more videos (short reels) instead of photographs. It's pictures that made Instagram popular. It became so appealing that Facebook bought Instagram a few years ago for over about $1 billion. Now they want to reverse course due to the competition from Tik Tok.

Meta also faces some challenges with their other social media platform Facebook with the majority of its users beginning to age out of the desired demographic in the United States. Below is a great explanation from heyDominik of what is going on now with the social media company. The background music is kind of weird,)
