Instagram Following Feature Is Being Removed — See Reactions

Chances are, you’ve already heard the controversial news regarding Instagram getting rid of its infamous Following tab. The feature, which was first introduced in 2011, enables users to keep track of their followers’ activity — posts they like, comments they write, and of course, who they follow. As of this week, though, the Following feature is officially getting axed, and as you might expect, many folks are not happy about the move and taking to Twitter to air their frustrations.

Turns out, Instagram’s decision to remove the feature came down to simplicity — that, and the fact that people weren’t using it that frequently. The company’s head of product, Vishal Shah, also told BuzzFeed News: “People didn’t always know that their activity is surfacing 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.”

It might not be the app’s most-used feature, but there are still people up in arms over its exit. Simply search “Instagram following update” on Twitter and you find a laundry list of angry — not to mention downright funny — tweets about the matter. Some users are merely warning others about the news and telling them to not get the update if they want to continue lurking on their followers, while others are expressing their annoyance over not being able to check up on each other in the same way anymore.

To find out how fans really feel about the Following feature going away, check out the Twitter reactions below, which we think you’ll find amusing to say the last.
