Many users have a mindset that social media platforms need to be free of boundaries and limitations. In other words, all users must be able to operate their accounts as per their wishes. The changes might excite several users since they might be willing to handle their activities regardless of being interrupted by elders, Also, the company claims that the application may be much more entertaining for the youngsters if no oldies are bothering them.
The new policy can also be a way to ensure the teenagers that their parents or other adults won’t ruin this platform just like they ruined Facebook for them. In recent past years, the teens have been posting memes on social media regarding how their parents joined Facebook and they had to leave it. Kids were annoyed by the friend requests for their relatives popping up destroying the app for them. So, they shifted their interest to other alternatives like Instagram and Snapchat, where they can post stories free of the fear that their folk might interrupt. Considering this context, keeping the old lads from teens’ posts would turn out to be good for many young Insta- users.
Other than that, the competition between the platforms is rising i.e., there is already one war ‘TikTok vs Snack Video’ is ongoing and WhatsApp is in the battle with its alternatives. In such a scenario, Insta is looking forward to up its game.
