The Sleepover Club: Instagram Is In It's Flop Era The Polyester Podcast

    • Society & Culture

For the last five years, we've all collectively been lamenting the downfall of instagram. First, they took our chronological feed. Then, they pivoted to Reels. But as we all become increasingly exhausted with the platform, why can't we let go? And with the reaction to Elon Musk buying Twitter being so intense, do social media platforms owe anything to their users?
This week we're discussing how Instagram has become culturally void, whether TikTok is the future, and whether insta's downfall is an inevitable part of the cycle of social media or our reluctance to let it go signals a greater shift in our culture.
Pre-order Ione's book, Poor Little Sick Girls, here!
