Instagram is rediscovering my bullies thanks so much!! Watch

    • Thread Starter

    I use instagram to see my favourite things and random stuff across the world. I'm really selective and only follow a few friends on there, but 90% of my insta activity is liking totally random stuff and my friends hardly post anyway.

    Just now I went on to the discover page and in the first 4 rows there were 2 pictures of girls who I went to school with who used to bully me, ha! What the ****??

    I carefully clicked on "show fewer posts like this" because repressed memories of them and my school days. I happily haven't seen them in years and do not wish to "discover" them, ever, like seriously can they **** off.

    I've always gone on the discover page to like random pics without even looking at the usernames because it's always random pages but now Insta is springing this **** with old faces who made my teenage life hell? Honestly I'm so irritated. It's the reason I don't have facebook because I don't want to see any of these people I had to go to school with and I don't give a **** about their existence and what they are doing, but now Insta is trying so hard to 'reconnect' us, lol no chance.

    My suggested who to follow is full of old faces from school and I know it's because 4 of my long term friends follow them, but seriously? My page should not be bombarded by these *****.

    My page is private and I know I can block them, but if I'm also appearing on their suggested list or if they ever see me in someone's comments section or whatever, they'll see that they're blocked and I just don't want them knowing anything of my existence tbh.

    Considering I keep a low profile and haven't got fb or anything linked on there, my view of Insta was that I could go on it and see a bunch of cool things far away from irl *****es I haven't seen in years. Guess I was wrong!
