I'm a big fan of Instagram. It's my favorite social media platform, narrowly beating out Twitter.
But, there's one feature available on Twitter that Instagram needs to copy: Lists.
I follow a lot of people on Instagram, for one reason or another, and I hate unfollowing accounts, because, quite honestly I'm lazy. The upside is that I'm constantly seeing fresh content. The downside is I don't want to see 90% of it.
This wasn't as big of a problem when my timeline worked as a timeline and showed me content in the order it was uploaded. Unfortunately, since Facebook convinced Instagram that they were better at telling me what I wanted to see, my timeline has gone to hell.
Since there's no chance of going back to the old way, "lists" is the answer.
Instagram, please give me the ability to create lists. You get to keep controlling my timeline in a way that works best for Facebook's bottom line, and I get to curate lists that allow me see content I WANT to see from the accounts I really care about.
And, let's be honest, since you like copying every one else's best features, it shouldn't be too hard to do.
