Forget notes on Instagram – I want to edit carousel posts after uploading

Instagram recently launched a new feature that allows you to share notes with your followers. Nobody seems to know what it’s all about, not very many people seem to use it, and I’m left wondering why the dev team at Meta thought this was a more important update than, I don't know, being able to edit a carousel post after uploading. 

Historically, Instagram has made some pretty questionable decisions. From removing the chronological timeline (although it has now been brought it back), to introducing Reels to (in my humble opinion) the worst Instagram update ever which completely changes the design of your feed, on several occasions I've wondered: who on Earth is okaying these decisions? Updates should make improvements, not the other way around.
