My Instagram feed has been flooded, flooded, with posts from odd accounts the past couple of weeks. All of the posts include follow buttons. Is this something I can adjust in settings or is it a good reason to abandon the service. Oh wise experts advise this casual user.

Are you able to set it as a private account (under settings)? Or do you need it to be open?

I'll just point out that Instagram is owned by Facebook.....

My instagram isn't even under the same freaking email, and I keep getting suggestions to follow my FB friends [I think its getting worse as people leave FB - I know it seems worse since I stopped paying attention to mine]
