For the little interest I have it in it still: Instagram but also Vero as the alternative. Don't have much following anywhere, just nice to post images up from time to time.

Follower numbers on Instagram mean literally nothing now. I shut down my account with 10,000 followers because only 200 of them were seeing any given post. The algorithm completely favors video content over photos, and if you arenít paying to sponsor your posts, or if you arenít making ADHD friendly reels, youíll never get seen any more.

Iím not particularly interested in growing a huge following on VERO, itís just a decent place to have my high resolution photos available to the masses thatís not Flickr.

IG is using every dirty trick in the book to try to keep you scrolling

Yes, these big social media platforms are heartless monsters. If you have a separate "business page" on Facebook, only about 1% of your followers see what you post, and FB prods you on every post to "Pay $35.00 to reach up to 435 followers" Pfft. Just look at the grief Dave McKeegan recently went through (listen to the whole thing):

No need for me to watch, I lived it for the last 3 years. Rode the wave of easy follows, got a taste of "influencer" status at 10k where companies threw freebies at me nonstop, and then FB/IG locked all view and growth behind the paywall. Whenever I needed support, there was none to be found. When I did get any form of response, it was automated and months later.

Judging just from his title, they aren't incompetent. They do whatever makes them money. Influencers are DESPERATE to keep their following numbers because it's what makes them money. IG is raking them over the coals and has them dead to rights, and the influencers are paying up. IG is making money hand over fist from this model. Does it work for people like you and me that just want to be left alone and post photos? Nope, but that's not FB/IG's problem, and we aren't their target market any longer.

I don't understand Instagram. A phone is absolutely the worst platform I can think of for looking at photos, and even if you open instagram on a regular computer monitor the images are small. I have an Instagram account and I've posted a handful of photos to it, but stopped earlier this year and would cancel my account except that a few photographers whose work I admire only post to Instagram so it's better than nothing. But only by a hair.

I have a friend who's a foodie influencer on IG. I think she stopped posting a while back. Follower count stuck at 11K and only about 150 to 350 likes per post, so not going super well.

What I've noticed is that most of the likes and comments are from other foodie influencers, so she isn't really getting exposure outside of her foodie circle.

I limit my instagram just for mostly seascape/landscape photography (do not post wedding photos, portrait photos or personal/family photos) - only one corner of my photography

One thing I've always disliked about IG is that when you rotate your phone 90 degrees, a landscape image doesn't rotate, filling the screen. So one has to crop/size their photos to square (1080 x 1080) or portrait (1080 x 1350), which means that any landscape format image you post (1080 x 608) looks so small and anemic, it just doesn't have any impact like it would have on a desktop screen, so it doesn't serve landscape photographers very well, unless you do shoot a landscape image intentionally in a portrait (vertical) format. I even have many bird photos that simply do not lend themselves to a square or vertical format, so they never get posted there.

If youíre still downrezzing to 1080 for IG, donít. They use 2048 now for the long side.
