Giving Instagram another chance

At the end of last year, I ‘quit’ Instagram in a huff over its new terms of service. I didn’t actually delete my account but I did stop posting new photos, and deleted the app off my iPhone.

Anyway, I’m back. I suppose I predicted that Instagram would go into meltdown after the announcement and everyone would stop using it. That didn’t happen and it’s seemingly still as popular as ever. Plus, it’s a really easy way to share your photos in multiple places at once – the acquisition by Facebook hasn’t resulted in the ability share photos on Flickr, Foursquare, Tumblr and Twitter yet which is good.

So I’m using it again, although I’m not seeing the same level of interaction with my photos – fewer likes and comments than before. Maybe I’m just not photographing enough interesting things?
