INSTAGRAM ARE THEY TRYING TO KILL IT

Posted on

Once again I am writing about Instagram.

Are they trying to kill the business, or just inept and relying on AI computers to run their business. I have first hand knowledge of their business model having had an account for most of 2019, and with over 7500 followers. But time after time I get problems, and I am not the only one, I have contact with users who have a lot more followers than me, twice as much if not more. We have experienced problems over the months with Instagram, but currently it has become even worse. They seem to have changed their algorithm and it is a major problem. If you use ig you will know you click onto anyone who wants to follow you, but what I am experiencing is you click on, click on and once more you do, the name keeps returning so you could click on a dozen or more times.

Now you would think ok just get in touch with ig and tell them the problem, oh no this is not possible, they never answer any of the normal avenues of contact (as written about in previous blog) they in fact have taken down all email contact expecting you to use their app to make contact. Yes maybe a good idea, but no its not they never answer you however many times you send a question.

So what do I think, well I think their business model is too successful they have lost focus on one part, us the user they have no interest at all.

Rode VideoMic Pro for Mobile

Posted on

Please order here

This is the first microphone I have ever purchased, I purchased it to use on my android Huawei P20 mobile.

The quality of the Rode is excellent, not only build quality but in the sound as well. And the great thing is it just plugs right into your mobile. I believe some of the late iPhone have no longer got a headphone jack point, but I believe you can buy a special cable for this. I am using this on my smooth 4  gimble and have had to buy a cable to use it, but its not expensive. This shotgun microphone I believe for the money, about 5o€ on Amazon and the cable 7€ or 8€  is excellent value. It also comes with what I am told is called a dead cat, a furry item to cover the mike if its windy.

This is the dead cat and microphone connected to the mobile.
