INSTAGRAM what a pain in the backside

INSTAGRAM, what a pain in the backside they are.

I have three accounts running and one for a year now, I have had problems with my main account for at least the best part of six months. I cannot follow all of the followers that want to follow me, the light goes out when you click on follow, but if you refresh the page it turns blue again. I have messaged Instagram on their so called help line every day for weeks, with absolutely NO reaction.

I think the combined size of this company together with Facebook that they really do not give a sh.. about customer care or service. Why we all bother with either Facebook or Instagram some times I wonder, but they are good social media platforms to get yourself out there, its a shame the customer service is so poor.

INSTAGRAM, qué dolor en la parte trasera son.

Tengo tres cuentas en funcionamiento y una desde hace un año, he tenido problemas con mi cuenta principal durante al menos la mayor parte de seis meses. No puedo seguir a todos los seguidores que quieren seguirme, la luz se apaga cuando haces clic en seguir, pero si actualizas la página, se vuelve azul nuevamente. Le envié mensajes a Instagram en su llamada línea de ayuda todos los días durante semanas, sin absolutamente ninguna reacción.

Creo que el tamaño combinado de esta compañía junto con Facebook es que realmente no les importa la atención o el servicio al cliente. Me pregunto por qué todos nos molestamos con Facebook o Instagram algunas veces, pero son buenas plataformas de redes sociales para salir, es una pena que el servicio al cliente sea tan pobre.

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

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.
