Instagram Hates The Internet
Instagram's most toxic contribution might be "Link in Bio". In order to lock you in completely, they took the fundamental defining characteristic of The Web -- the hyperlink -- and destroyed it.
This dark pattern is the logical progression of social media silos. It says: "the Product keep leaving our site! Let's make it be six clicks harder. Let's give them one link, only one. Let's display that other page inside our app instead of in a real web browser. Let's make the OS's 'share' panel even harder to use, because otherwise they might share something somewhere that we can't monetize."
Burn it all down. Burn them all down.
I would, however, like to see an act by burlesque duo, Lincoln Bio and Skip Intro.
