In the beginning, Instagram was used to upload photos and videos but it’s all changed now. People are using it for texting, sharing photos, making reels, and many other things. This is why sometimes people think they are wasting too much time on Instagram, and they uninstall it. But uninstalling it doesn’t mean that you have lost the ability to connect with your friends. This is because Facebook recently came out with a feature using the Facebook Messenger app. In this way, people can still uninstall the app if they think they are not liking the app or wasting too much time on the app but can still message their friends.
