Ok this is, or could be, a game changer for absolutely ruining engagement. Especially for those people who do follow/unfollow.
My thinking is that people will use it aggressively, as they have those crappy store apps that tell you who has unfollowed and instantly unfollow back, but now everyone will encouraged to unfollow people who Instagram’s shitty algorithm decides to never show your content to, and as a result they’ll then potentially unfollow you.
Sounds like a great way to totally wreck the platform in my opinion. It basically gives everyone a follow/unfollow tool built in, but worse, it’s driven by the bad algorithm which may result in a really toxic place.
What do you all think about this?
