This has been very very painful to watch on Instagram as it’s happening. Not knowing exactly WHEN Instagram was going dark. “is it still up?” posts have been common. Lots of tearful goodbyes. Some kept up a smily game face too. Many do not know how to migrate to Telegram or VK; or they migrate to VK only to discover most of their friends CAN’T FOLLOW to VK anymore… Telegram is the most open option for the world. It’s probably finished by now or soon. For me it’s 108 people I could track down that had migrated to Telegram more or less. Some continued where they left off, others aren’t quite set up properly but they’ll have to get help locally for that. https://qz.com/2141302/instagram-will-go-dark-in-russia-expanding-a-media-vacuum/
