Instagram now tells people when you screenshot, so just throw away your whole damn phone

Who thought this was a good idea!?

Lately, Instagram has sucked for a lot of reasons: posts are no longer in chronological order, influencers are reportedly being screwed out of money, and now, on top of everything else, Instagram alerts someone when you take a screenshot. Is nothing sacred?!

Long gone are the days of snapping pics of your ‘friends’ and then talking shit about them in your secret group chat. No more screenshotting the guy you’ve met twice and making it their contact photo in your phone. We can’t even screenshot dick-picks anymore without the Instagram police tattling on us for christ’s sake.

Luckily, this update still does not alert screenshots of stories — direct messages only — but that’s where all the goods are anyway! Besides, with the way things are to be developing, stories are surely next.

We must move to a new, more secure, platform before it is too late.
