But like seriously, this shit is so contrived. You can make the incredibly mundane look "so profound, dude" with these stupid filters.

http://instagram.heroku.com is the first web based client but it's not very user friendly

is there an app that makes your photos look like they were taken with a rolleicord iv yet?

I wish there was an app that made your photos look like they were taken by someone who can't take photos

VegemiteGrrrl, Tuesday, 18 January 2011 22:10 (five years ago) Permalink

I put that Instagram thing on my phone but then realised it was this whole 'social network' thing and quickly lost interest.

VegemiteGrrrl, Tuesday, 18 January 2011 22:11 (five years ago) Permalink

You don't have to share or follow anyone.

Pleasant Plains, Tuesday, 18 January 2011 22:19 (five years ago) Permalink

You don't? Neato.

Sharing and following is lame imo :)

VegemiteGrrrl, Tuesday, 18 January 2011 22:25 (five years ago) Permalink

I was using it as just another lens app before I realized that there was a whole nother thing behind it.

Pleasant Plains, Tuesday, 18 January 2011 22:27 (five years ago) Permalink

xp but then the only way to explore is to look at the Popular pix page which is pretty terrible imo

i have an older ipod touch that doesn't have a camera. can instagram be used to apply filters to photos that are on your device but weren't taken with it?

markers, Friday, 11 November 2011 14:29 (four years ago) Permalink

I think so. There's a "Load from Library" option.

However, I don't know if the app they're using now will work on an older ipod.

hint: a lot (I don't know exactly how much) of the purchase price is in facebook stock, which is probably not actually worth as much as they say it is

the facebook stock is almost certainly going to be worth much more than its valued at atm when it goes public in a few months

lag∞n, Monday, 9 April 2012 18:24 (four years ago) Permalink

but yeah I generally find it annoying when people put those cheap instagram-type filters on their photos. The iPhone camera takes such nice photos so easily, and people ruin them with this hazy nostalgia bullshit.

I don't want to yell 'internet bubble' cause clearly fb and twitter and some things have a value that couldn't really have existed 10 years ago but this is just...a camera filter

fb and google do this kinda thing all the time tho? buying up technology to integrate it into their own platforms... not that i'm saying instagram is worth ONE BILLION DOLLARS *dr evil pinky* but it's kinda their m.o.

J0rdan S., Monday, 9 April 2012 18:29 (four years ago) Permalink

yeah but why do you even need to 'buy up that technology', do they really have a patent on hipster-camera-filters? as hurting said they're not even the first to do this

iatee, Monday, 9 April 2012 18:30 (four years ago) Permalink

my guess would be that instagram was working on some kind of expansion and fb caught wind of it and just decided to snatch whatever up whatever it was

J0rdan S., Monday, 9 April 2012 18:31 (four years ago) Permalink

instagram's "value" such as it is is in the social network aspect, not the filter aspect

naw its a rapidly growing social network w/50m users whos main utility photo sharing is also facebooks main utility - idk abt the price but its obvs why facebook felt they needed to eat them

really its "buying" 30 million users + ownership of the most popular photo-sharing social network. facebook loves photos b/c theyre significantly more interesting than links or status updates, as measured by the # of ppl who click on them and the amount of time they spned

I see sponsored post ads, but some of the folks I follow on Instagram are basically posting ads anyway (but they are ones I want to see)-- just for DC go-go gigs, New Orleans brass ones, afrobeat/afropop dj nights, etc.

Plenty of adverts here, but they're not too obnoxious yet.

Instagram advertising is a straightforward option when making Facebook adverts and sponsored/boosted posts nowadays. Tried it once so far as an experiment, but Instagram still works well organically, so we haven't found the need yet.

Today's snap is tomorrow's Instagram post.

Any Given User (Eazy), Thursday, 30 June 2016 16:03 (one month ago) Permalink

I think the bigger scale of Snapchat's images doesn't get noted enough. A snap photo has to be cropped to fit on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and so on, keeping a Snap photo from being interchangeable on other platforms.

Any Given User (Eazy), Thursday, 30 June 2016 16:04 (one month ago) Permalink

the number of photos shared on average by each Instagram user fell

Weird wording there. When I think of "share", I think of what you do on Facebook with someone else's content or retweeting something on Twitter.

People "post" their photos on Instagram, and I get the idea what the writer is saying. There's a share button, but I rarely, rarely ever see it used by anyone.

The new non-chronologic algorithm combined with an explosion of ads in my feed (every 2-3 pix?) pretty much turned me off of IG.

Jersey Al (Albert R. Broccoli), Sunday, 3 July 2016 01:45 (one month ago) Permalink

I usually scroll down until I hit one that I've already seen.

So now with the new algorithm, I hardly spend any time at all on Instagram!

That article also links to an article saying that facebook users have been sharing less of their personal lives, which is an interesting development that accords with my observations -- people have gotten a lot more selective inasmuch as there's no longer any novelty to just saying whatever the fuck you're doing/eating/thinking right now.

instagram is gd imo. like it is something you read when you are in a queue to access memes + screenshotted details of interesting internet information + then just cool world glimpses. abbott wrote something in another thread abt the virtue of smartphones being how you can foto the weird shit that stumbles into yr view while you are out of the house, + instagram is the repository for this at the moment i think.

i get kinda hazy abt [platform] is dying !!! hysteria bc it is like ... like websites are dying ... which they are .. but also they are not ... meaningfully dying ... i can read a website ... lots of websites ... instagram is fine ... it's fine. you know
