Instagram: Is It Worth Using It?

Fri Aug 24, 2012 8:48 pm

I have debating whether I should use Instagram or not. My only concern about it is :
Instagram can :
View photos of the people you follow
Like and Comment on photos, up to even posting on my behalf
Follow and Unfollow other users
See your followers and following
Browse popular photos/tags/users
Get your RSS feeds
Other than that, it seems to be a cool App. So, what d'yall think?

Thanks

I have it but I never use it. If you're just into taking photos then use the Camera - if you want to follow people then it's sort of useful but you can only use it on the iPod/iPad/iPhone, there's no web interface.

I've been using this app for a while and I find it pretty addictive, I love it !

It can be a cool app. But, in my opinion it's one of the most overused apps people use on Facebook. I have it, but rarely use it. There are many ways to edit/share a photo you take.

Tried it. Didn't see the point, really; other photo editing apps have far more features, and if I want to share my photos via social networking sites I can do that. Why do I need something that's an "all in one" when it doesn't do either one particularly well?

I have nothing against the app itself, but the users are extremely annoying. Adding filters to a crappy pic of the slice of toast you had in the morning does not make it a work of art, nor does it make you a photographer. Mini-rant over.

It seems like the major use of instagram is for people to edit pictures of their breakfast or new profile pics of themselves before posting them to facebook.
It is a mistake to think you can solve any major problems with just potatoes.
