So, Instagram has finally given users a way to view their photo feed on its official website.
But why bother?
I’m a big fan of Instagram and have been using it for a long time. I visit the app daily and share my own photos regularly.
But the new site has disappointed me. Especially when I compare it to Pinstagram, a site which was developed to fill the gap in Instagram’s offering on the internet. See for yourself in the examples below. Which layout do you prefer?
And note that the screenshot of my Instagram feed above was taken after reducing my screen size to 50%. Usually, it would show only one image (and probably a partial image at that).
Both sites give me the ability to like an Instagram picture and to comment. So why on earth would I ditch Pinstagram, when its layout is so much more attractive and offers more at a single glance?
What do you think?
