The only constant in social media is change.
Well... that's not entirely true. One thing that hasn't changed is trolls that like to post negative comments and that you have to have ideas to post and you have to post consistently and... oh... I digress...
Change is a good thing most of the time. Things that "change for the better" as they say serve us well.
Social media and the social media platforms are constantly changing, and they argue, for the better. They are constantly rolling out updates to the platform. One day you login to respond to direct messages and you realize the place you normally go to do that has moved and you can't find it. You go to upload an image to be met with an alert saying the image size is no longer correct. It can be maddening.
The downside to this is that it takes time away from your business and life to try to keep up. You can Google solutions and watch YouTube videos, but if the change has just been implemented, you may not find the answers you are looking for right away.
What you need to remember is that EVERYONE experiences this. Even I as a "professional digital marketer" wake up to major changes that take me time to learn and get used to.
