The wrong way to populate my instagram browsing XP with repeated photos and videos is ridiculously stupid!

I have already flag many contents I don’t want to see anymore but they come back everytime!

So why Instagram algorithm is so annoying!?

What’s wrong with the instagram algorithm 2017 ?

If Instagram is filling your feed with the same photo or video and you for over a week are trying to get rid off this duplicate contents so you are probably wasting your time!

I also try but is not working!

You get photos you don’t wanna to see. Then everyday and even after a month I start developing a technique trying to trick the algorithm that populate my Instagram browsing experience. I almost UNFOLLOW and UNLIKE any Instagram account that may contain that kind of photos but apparently my idea is not working anyway.

I think it will take a wile before this slow innacurate Instagram algorithm will understand what I want to see and what are my interest. If so this is absolutly catastrofic for the millions of advertiser that may rely on it to reach users.

So why Instagram is making this spamming instead of offering new contents?

Why also this Instagram spam apply to advertising?

Instagram Advertising also go wrong in my case!

Invading and not concerning advertising also populate my browsing experience with wrong language ads and alcohol advertising contents I have previously marked I’m considering offending! But Instagram show me again and again. My compliments!

A Way to fix instagram wrong algorithm 2017 ? How to tips

You may try the below but for me in iPhone 7 platform is not working right now..

No! Sorry no way!

Uninstalling Instagram and installing again? Not working

Change your country in Facebook ? Not working

Deleting Safari or any other browser cookies? Not working.

Log out from Facebook app? Not working

Clearing the Instagram cache or search history? Not working

No one of the above will help you get new good feed and good new contents while browsing Instagram. The contents will be the same categories you visited and or liked or saved in your Instagram browsing history with a minimum variation that make it boring to surf.

Also this kind of in APP browsing experience could cause a sort of anxiety in final users.

Me and probably all other Instagram users are afraid to like some cat photos and then see Instagram populating with 80% of the contents?! So be careful and be aware of what you LIKE and SHARE so farin INSTAGRAM!

Consider.. also if you maybe have kids and they one day will use your phone and boom if you previusly searched for “top model beach wear” then Instagram will probably show for months almost naked sexy girls on your Instagram feed!

I think they must improve the instagram algorithm 2017 and definitely change it to allow user to get a new better experience.

Here we go again! After 8 clicks on see fewer post like this the fatty cat appears again..

And now you maybe suggest to pay attention to the hashtags I use in my own post?! Is this connected? ok, you don’t know!

and what about Saved ? When you save a photos you may find interesting I believe this have an important role on you next browsing experience too!

Also kepp in mind if you post a cat picture Instagram will show you cat pictures as well forefer!

YES is getting worse!

I have totally confidence on sharing this with you!!!

Is confirmed.. Instagram algorithm volountary include beautiful funny lovely cats and dogs in your Instagram feed browsing experience even if you ever never liked or searched for any kind of cats or dogs contents before!


It happen also if you use a new phone or from a new IP address or a new Instagram accout.

So this is an EPIC GLOBAL SPAMMING contents distribution.

I can only hope you love puppies!

Thanks for reading
