@MissUSA on Instagram announced that they had some "exciting news" to share with the fans. IMG decided to permanently delete the @MissTeenUSA official Instagram page, and start posting news from both pageants into one account, rather than two. The response of the fans was less than favorable.
A further change was made when IMG decided to not only merge the social media profiles of Teen USA and Miss USA but also held the pageants concurrently.
