I’m sure you are all now familiar with Instagram Stories, if you aren’t – you need to work on updating your apps on your phone so you can be apart of this rather annoying trend.

I was never really a fan of SnapChat (add me @mylifepossible) to begin with because I feel like people try to have chats over photos as more of a long-term conversation. Which I know is the premise and hence the name snap “chat.” However, for me I can’t remember what was said, so it becomes really hard for me to keep up with the chat. In addition to that, I feel like it is oversharing my life – yeah, I just said that.

Anyways, here are 11 reasons I hate the new Instagram Stories.

  1. I hate notifications, and now I have even more to go through
  2. I can’t send “snaps” or moments to those I want to
  3. I can’t hide accounts that I don’t care to see their stories
  4. It’s just another way for people to over-share stupid posts and photos
  5. Instagram was always the place for edited photos, not real life
  6. You cant easily see people’s profiles from the story,┬ásure there are swipe options for the story, but not for their profile
  7. It’s literally a copy of snapchat (add me, @mylifepossible) with less features
  8. It seems that usually the photos from the story end up as a photo in my newsfeed too.
  9. You can’t double tap to show love for a story, the foundation of Instagram – even though I’m still against the stories
  10. You can’t change the font color
  11. It’s just another thing to have to keep up with, distracting us from the world that’s falling apart
