Hello,

Instagram won't let me comment on any posts, even my own! This has been happening for a few days. Maybe a glitch since their last update 3 days ago??

Anyone else have this problem?


Macintosh / Firefox 108.0

As you can't post anywhere, neither on the app nor on the website, your account is maybe restricted from posting comments.

Try spacing out your comments. Don't include more than 5 mentions and 30 hashtags in a single comment. You can't also post the same comment multiple times, even emojis.

Now, I advise you to avoid posting comments for the next days. After 3-4 days, you can try again - and if that persists, report the problem to Instagram.

Good luck

Thanks. I have never “over-commented” so I don’t see why I would suddenly be restricted. If anything, I usually don’t comment. I did report it. Nothing’s happening. ???? Will wait before trying again.

Hi,

Did you try reinstalling the app?

Can you post comments if you use the Instagram website?

No. I type my comment, it looks as though it's 'trying' to post it, but then it gives up and doesn't! Any suggestions? I'm so frustrated!  (Btw I am able to like, dislike etc.)
