    Yeah, it's no longer a photo-sharing app anymore. It's now a YouTube/TikTok clone.

    So... who's jumping back onto Twitter?

    Facebook is definitely the worst at this point but twitter isn't too far behind. I only use twitter to get sports news otherwise its a landfill of s---. Instagram is probably the best out of all of them

    Instagram is owned by Facebook just to let you know.

    I like Instagram as a photo sharing app, I could care less about the reels or IGTV. I don't know how they're going to do this but if they're going to rip away the core component that makes it such a great app then no use for me using Instagram right?

    Guess it's subjective, but for me Facebook used to be a place to read jokes see pics of your friends and interesting s---. Now it's everyones political opinions and sharing news through fake sites and uneducated memes

    At this point, social media is really about getting certain kinds of info and learning about different companies or people that might be selling something that I want to buy. The novelty of connecting with people from my past wore out in the MySpace days.

    As someone who’s into photography this annoys me.

    All the social media companies are just derivative of each other t this point.

    I will say I hate what the culture of Instagram has become so maybe this will be good for creators having original content on Instagram but I doubt it. The “influencer” market killed any earnestness on the platform and has lead it to being incredibly toxic. One of personal relieves during the pandemic was seeing people become people again on Insta and not just have this carefully manicured and curated lifestyle.

    Twitter can be equally as toxic with its negativity but it’s genuinely an interesting platform to communicate with. If you’re on it at the right moment, it can be fun. But it’s mostly bad because so much energy on it is how the world is a bad place (with it is, but lol) all of the time. Never liked the 180 character limit because it made it feel 1984 Newspeak. With 240 it's a bit better.

    FB is just terrible because it has terrible design. I did appreciate that you could articulate in long form and nuance tho. Too bad not many more people use the platform that way.

    I'm the exact same. Although just make sure you never read the comments on NBA tweets. There's no bigger cancer on the internet.
