Overall Opinion: I like the fact you can share your images to a worldwide audience and be inspired by other photographers you'd never get the chance to see. And then keep up to date with what they're doing. However, the interface, like Facebook, is totally shit and unusable, particularly their terrible, terrible Stories concept that is full of shit advertising that really sucks. The problem is you just don't have any real control over the images you're looking at, particularly with their crap Stories interface which you have absolutely no control over at all. So, all in all, because I've yet to find a good alternative, I keep using it but under duress. And I'm considering designing my own alternative
Pros: Finding inspiring photographers
Cons: Lack of any user control
Overall Opinion: After instagram became a facebook company, i do not like it and are looking for alternatives, dumped facebook so it is time to dump instagram aswell. Been to many bad changes with algoritms and facebook itself is a very very very shady company with to many big disasters under its "belt". I hope instagram, facebook and youtube burn in a fire one day. They were good once, not anymore for the "little people".
Overall Opinion: I love Instagram! This is one of the main platforms I use for my travel blog's social media, and I wouldn't change it for anything. However, as a creator, my account is getting much less visibility than 1-2 years ago, and my rates are falling more and more. Which doesn't makes sense if someone can see my content. It actually got better and better. Since I have a business account, my organic views are just falling. Though, I still don't want to give up on this paltform.
Pros: Features are amazing. Story features are great, and they are getting better and better. A few years ago, I couldn't share as eye-catching stories as right now. As someone who's using Instagram to share travel content, stories are super important and with the newest features, engagement and visibility grew as well. Editing within when we share a new picture makes it super simple to share. I love also that I can be logged in with multiple accounts, that's helpful for someone who's managing more accounts. The platform itself is great. Absolutely great!
Cons: Organic reach is less and less. This is also pretty annoying when I see huge accounts that also grow super fast, but then, there are the small accounts producing great content, but they don't even reach at least 5% of the followers they have. When I have 16K followers, and the organic reach for one picture is 1K, it's pretty annoying. This has an impact on my engagement rate, and everything. Since my account was created, years ago, I had a lot of engagement, even on pictures that right now I wouldn't share again. Now, however, when I do create great content, if I don't pay, I reach so little amount of people.
Overall Opinion: It's basically impossible to have not heard of Instagram if you've ever used a smartphone. The platform isn't too different from other social networking services like Facebook and Twitter, but this app focuses on sharing photos and videos. When you first install the app, it will ask you for access to various permissions on your device so it can operate at full capacity. For most mobile devices, the download is less than 100MB, which is exceptionally slim for any modern app. After the app has been successfully installed, you will either have to login with your Facebook account or create an Instagram account. You can also login with an existing Instagram account if you already have one but have deleted or otherwise lost the app. If you use your Facebook credentials, you'll be given the option to follow every friend you have on Facebook. This is quite helpful if you have a large group of friends and you want to add them all quickly. One of the reasons Instagram is so popular as a social networking platform is that it has multiple sharing methods all bundled into a single interface. It's essentially four separate apps grouped into the overarching Instagram shell. The four main apps within the app are the main photo-sharing platform that started it all, the live video streaming app, the Stories module that emulates a similar service from Snapchat, and the basic text messaging app that defers the use of any imagery beyond emojis. You can enter the primary camera mode by clicking the + button at the bottom of the main photo-sharing screen. You'll be able to take a fresh photo or select one to post from your gallery of saved images. You can also take a video from this camera mode by switching to the video mode. The app lets you adjust the flash, but it is limited to square photos. What's really fun about Instagram are the various filters and effects you can apply after you've selected the image to post. There are 23 striking filters, and you can adjust the strength of each filter. The editing tools include a lighting autocorrection function, leveling and rotating tools, and a Vignette tool. Saturation, Structure, Warmth, Contrast, and Brightness are all adjustable thanks to the various simple tools, and you can use the Color tool to add highlights or shadows in a specific color tone. Instagram is the industry standard for photo-based social networking.
Pros: Tons of Users Sleek Interface
Cons: Feed Based on Algorithm No Live Video Saving
Overall Opinion: It's a great app. I really enjoy using this app. This is one of the best app I ever had. But recently I'm facing some problem. I can't like other posts, can't edit my post, can't follow people, can't comment on others' posts and also can't write any description for my post.
Pros: no pop up
Cons: I can't like other posts, can't edit my post, can't follow people, can't comment on others' posts and also can't write any description for my post.
Overall Opinion: It is great platform to share image or video but the problem is limitation to customize the content order on your profile, so basically if you want to make organized photo or video on your profile then you have to plan it since the beginning of your account was created.
Pros: - Easy to use - Free without limitation - Integration to facebook
Cons: - Lot of advertisements - Low Customization - Unable to download or enlarge image
