    Thanks for the post. I don’t use my phone other than to add pictures to my instagram page. I enter a lot of giveaways and use my desktop computer for that and each time I go to like, or leave a comment on someone;s page I get this… and the page is plain white. What can I do to correct this? I sent instagram a message last week and no reply yet.
