The ‘Following’ tab, Instagram’s greatest tool for lurking, is gone. This cursed feature was the source for catching your friends’ late-night thirst likes or tracking your crush’s following preferences. Although effective for some, it’s no longer with us, and we are much better without it.
According to BuzzFeed, Instagram’s head of product Vishal Shah said that fewer people were using this feature, giving it a clear reason to remove it, adding that many people didn’t realize their activity could be observed on the tab.
Now you are completely free to like and comment in peace, to the detriment of not being able to stalk anymore.
