Launched in 2010, Instagram is one of the top social media platforms in the world, second only to Facebook. And while Facebook seems to be losing its touch lately (mostly because of its lack of appeal to Gen Z), Instagram is only going upwards. It’s safe to say that in the coming years, we might see Facebook getting dethroned by Instagram in the race of social networking sites.
Instagram has come a long way from where it was in the beginning. Its success today is very well-deserved, to say the least, but it doesn’t mean the platform hasn’t had its own share of controversial decisions and criticism.
If no one can use the app at its full capacity, then what’s the point of all these features?
Let’s hope Instagram fixes its mobile app soon, as internet users won’t settle with an inconvenience when there are thousands of other social media networks on the internet.
In today’s blog, we’ll talk about why you can’t change your profile picture on Instagram. We’ll also discuss a few other related topics; stick with us till the end to learn all about them!
Why Can’t I Change My Profile Picture on Instagram?
Instagram is currently overcrowded with new users, and the developers’ team is certainly not ready to deal with the onslaught of patrons. However, it doesn’t seem like any effort or attention is being given to this issue, as Instagram continues to focus on new features instead.
If the Instagram app lags or closes every time you try to change your profile picture, we can help you with that. A few hacks are known to work for other users and will surely work for you, too.
Uninstall and reinstall the Instagram app on your smartphone.
Check for updates on Play Store/ App store.
Restart your device.
These fixes are enough to give you temporary relief before Instagram optimizes the app. However, if none of these work, try deactivating and reactivating your Instagram account.
