This past week flew by in a whirlwind! So many activities clamored for my time and in the end, I still wasn't able to post every day last week. But it's a new week now and the month stretches before me, filled with the promise of challenges completed.
Bad news came in early today. You can read the whole article here. (And slightly related, here's an article that helps break down the [very few] differences between the story features of Snapchat and IG. And here's an article on some new social media tools that might ease the pain of this new algorithm business on IG.) Apparently, the PTB (powers that be) of Facebook are being just as awful with drop-of-the-hat changes in algorithms in IG as they have been at Facebook. They are changing how Instagrammers can view posts. It's death for me. I can count on one hand how many comments I've received on any one photo I've posted there which include more than three words. It seems the PTB have decided any comment which consists of only emojis, or includes three words or less doesn't meet their expectations of actual interaction. This will reduce your visibility on the site. As will posting the same hashtags in consecutive posts, posting more than five hashtags, and more. I'm also going to have to start sharing stories if I want to gain more visibility. I hate how I look and sound on camera. And I hate that I'm practically being forced to not care about all that. <sigh> Inhale....exhale....inhale....exhale...and
Challenge Posts Go!
I'm trying out the slideshow feature for today's post. There were so many pictures to share, I thought it might be a nice way to display them. Days 2-4 are shown in order. Yes, there is one repeat since the same photo applied for two different challenges on two different days.
