But this time, Adam Mosseri himself said so exactly, word to word, so GSMA isn't exactly wrong here.

Nah, it's a tiktok video sharing app. They try to call it reels, but every single video is a cropped tiktok video.

"Will focus on video and entertainment going forward."

I mean, they are the ones who made vertical video mainstream because of IGTV. Not that I would watch vertical videos anyway.

people dont actually post like "hey i want my friends to see this" anymore, its become "ill post this cause its my brand" - that, the ads, the tiktokish videos, and the extreme explore page algorithm just got me out of it

Honestly the only thing I use instagram is to check photos captured by a certain phone or camera using hashtags. Flickr is good but content is way less. But even that is getting ruined because people are putting other device hashtags in everything.
Still there are some actual good photographers too who post good pictures.

Apps like Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, TikTok shows me why I've become anti social.
I had around 350 friends on Facebook back in the day (10-12 years ago), when the app was actually a good app to meet and interact with new people.
Nowadays are just a bunch of politically based apps where triggered people go to put r~tard or sexually orientated videos/photos.
You should be lucky to find 10% of their content any useful.
