Apart from developing codes, I also spend some time in quality writing.

In the beginning, Instagram was seen as seamless and with no issues. Yet, over time, as the brand grew, people began to notice issues with the UI, which stands for the user interface. UI are things that the user sees on the screen. The things they see are from the codes behind the scenes. One issue with Instagram's user interface is the timeline.

When Instagram first launched, the timeline was immediately in order by recent posts. Now, it is based on algorithm and engagement. Even if it is from three days ago, the posts from a follower that has more likes or that you may engage with more will show first rather than someone who posted seconds ago. Another user-interface Instagram faces is the type of explicit content posted, like sex or violence.

Instagram was launched by Facebook in 2010. Unlike other social media platforms at the time, Instagram was dedicated to exclusively sharing photos. When it was first launched, a majority of the users didn't find any issues with it because it was a new way to share with friends and other followers. As time went on, many began to find issues with the UI, which stands for the user interface.

This interface is what the user sees when they are using Instagram. As time has gone on, many things have led to users finding issues with the interface. Once is how the timeline is out of order. Instead of loading in chronological order, the timeline is shown by sponsored posts and those users that you engage with the most, regardless of when it is posted. Another issue with the interface is the type of content that is allowed to be posted, such as violence.

UI stands for user interface. User interface is the things that the user sees on the screen based on the site that they are on. Behind the scenes, there are all sorts of codes that the user never sees. These codes and languages are what makes the site work. One problem that Instagram faced was when they were faced with criticism based on offending language. Also, Instagram wanted to have the users’ name and photos can be used by businesses.

This idea brought about criticism about who owns the content that is displayed on the screen of Instagram. Other issues that have come about with Instagram include censorship problems, negative comments displayed, a timeline algorithm and promoting illicit drugs or exposing mental health problems on Instagram.
