My Thoughts On Facebook And Instagram

August 29th, 2011 § 0 comments

There have been speculation that Facebook will be coming out with filters for it’s photo sharing. Another rumor has surfaced that Facebook is looking to acquire Instagram.

Let me start with Facebook filters. I think that it is long overdue. Facebook has millions if not billions of images being posted and shared every year.

I have always thought that filters are a great way to make crappy photos look better and good photos look great. A majority of images on Facebook are crappy and good. Another reason I think this is a good idea is for all the non-iProduct users. Instagram is strictly an iPhone, iPad, and iPod application. I really feel like many people are missing out.

This leads me into the rumor about Facebook acquiring IG. I really hope and pray that Facebook does not acquire IG. Lately I have limited the images I upload to Facebook, and the terms of service has been a major factor. As a photographer, I get nervous when a photo sharing site goes through multiple TOS agreements.

Having said that, I do post my images to Facebook and twitter from Instagram. My friends are able to see my creations by clicking a link that redirects them to an Instagram internet browser page. Was my image uploaded onto Facebook? No.

I enjoy both Facebook and Instagram for different reasons, but I do not want to feel like I need to post to Facebook if I do not want to. There may be nothing to worry about, but it keeps us thinking.
