“I did ended up getting like 10 more followers that day (which it did felt like an avalanche of people), and though I’m just another passionate ‘snapshot’ photographer in this sea of ‘photographers’ that instagram carries, I wonder, what is the real ‘value’ of a ‘like’?
To me a ‘like’ is worth nothing. Zero. Nada. In my experience, I learnt a bunch of stuff, for example: Were ‘my’ 82 likes better than ‘their’ 999 or vice versa?, Nope. Is the photo any better after those 999?, No. Am I a better photographer for getting 999 instead of ‘just’ 82?, definitely not.”

“Earlier this year we gave you a list of 27 highly talented photographers who make your Instagram feeds look like cave art. That compendium of jaw-dropping artists only scratched the surface of smartphone beauty, so we’ve gone back into the depths of social media and put together another round-up of truly beautiful Instagram photography. Behold, 27 more people you need to follow right now.”
U dient wel te weten dat “highly talented” en “beautiful” heel rekbare en subjectieve begrippen zijn.

Volledig akkoord met onderstaande opinie. Eveneens in het artikel wordt geopperd dat (waarschijnlijk voorlopig) men geen foto’s zal afdrukken. Eigenlijk is dat ook niet het doel. Instagram is om te delen en om mee te delen.
“Instagram then does not become the final platform of displaying one’s work, but just a new way of communicating themselves to the world. If this is the case, perhaps Instagram does not serve as a threat to traditional photography, but an additional language to connect with an audience.”
