I’d avoided this Facebook social media alternative — until the pandemic. It’s very popular with outdoor recreation folks so I started posting near daily on @BestHikeVisuals.
Day 1 was November 9, 2020.
It’s shocking how limited Instagram is compared with Facebook. For example:
- until recently, it was super difficult to post from a computer
- Instagram images sometimes don’t show on browsers with ad blockers installed
- you have no control over the sizes of thumbnails. They often look stupid.
- Instagram videos are often poor quality and look bad when viewed from a computer rather than a phone
I’m up to over 300 posts now. And it is rewarding to quickly scan all of those. And there are some very good photos.
But many of the coolest influencers in 2021 are posting less to Instagram. Looking to TikTok and other social media.
