What does NFS mean on Instagram?

When Instagram users get tired of scrolling through thousands of staged photos and advertisements; they seek organic content that doesn’t feel forced or unnatural. 

There’s a trend going on right now in which both people and companies upload a picture with the hashtag “NFS”. But what does NFS mean on Instagram?

NFS has different meanings across the internet but for Instagram’s case in specific it means “No Filter Sunday”, which users add in their post’s description when they add a picture on a Sunday.

Again, this is a trend that’s been going on for a while to take a stand against non-organic content. User’s are sending a message that quality content should be spontaneous and authentic, without any filters applied to it.
