“We’re no longer a photo-sharing app or a square photo-sharing app.”

The end of an era, Instagram is now focusing primarily on video.

We're still here, and more dedicated than ever to our mission of creating an ethical photo-sharing platform.

@linus I am so old, I forgot about TikTok :D. But yeah I guess that makes more sense.

@le_ArthurDent @pixelfed currents are such that every social media app is trying to become a frightening mix of TikTok, Patreon, and WeChat, because that's where the money's at.

Maybe this focus on video would make them finally figure out all the UX issues around sound. Just maybe. But probably not.


I always refer to Pixelfed and your discussions about healthy or toxic features to show, that it is not the technology that's bad, but the profit driven implementation. Wish you all the success!

@pixelfed Is funny that they are focused on video, but you can't control the video, if you wanna watch some specific moment you have to rewatch it.

@pixelfed yet their logo is a camera like thingy. Not a video recorder thingy.

@pixelfed I have been responding to people lamenting the change in Instagram with links to you!
