    Thinking about deleting Instagram. Content discovery is totally broken with all avenues being flooded by fan pages reposting the same things. I’m also seeing fewer individual users post, filling feeds with big brands posting ads alongside the fan pages. Nothing but useless noise.

    Even if the government takes action esp about environmental issues, if its people (we Filipinos) still do not appreciate and care for our LIKAS YAMAN, it won’t be soon before it’ll all waste away and the only memory we’ll have is the pics on our instagram posts.
