    Here's my ETS counterpart account on Instagram. As I've also mentioned on the Twitter thread, I'm going to use it to follow other ETS members outside of ETS, and just for fun in general. I'm also going to mostly lurk as I've already talked more than enough on ETS. Even when I was on my personal social media account, I don't post pictures of myself or my personal life as there really isn't that much worth sharing anyway, and I'm still used to not showing myself on the Internet.

    Might as well go all in on INSTA

    https://www.instagram.com/haysey14/?hl=en

    It's mainly (right now) my mini film reviews/sketches, but i expect to start posting my sketches/model builds some more once a redo my studio (it's more like a room with a kitchen/bed/bathroom then a proper studio, but beggars can't be choosers)

    I'll chime in again. I like to take photos of random stuff whenever I feel inspired, with the occasional meme and or concert footage.

    I wish i understood the algorithms on insta. On Twitter there's a consistency to what drawings i upload, they all follow a similar amount of likes and shares (and have been growing at a steady rate!)...Insta on the other hand is COMPLETELY random! It's always a tosh up if i get 2 likes or 20 for drawings, though sketchs do appear to get more, but random a drawing will just explode FOR NO REASON! A sketch from month ago just started getting ridiculous amounts of likes out of nowhere, and a (admittedly not my best work) sketch i posted this week just blow and i have no idea why...

    I think i might go mad if i try to understand it...

    It makes no sense at this point and the app has slowly gone to shit since Facebook took over in 2012. It seriously feels like a Facebook hub at this point.

    I used to average around 60 likes a photo and now my followers say they barely ever see my posts anymore and if they do, it's literally 2 or 3 days later. I actually see your posts a lot!

    there was a recent update that has fucked us "content creators" even more because they want us to pay for their advertising platform in order to get people to see our posts.

    if i post a picture of my face? it shows it to SO many people. but if i post something about my music? hardly anyone sees it. it's SO FRUSTRATING. capitalism!

    Unfortunately, this is the way. I remember when my feed was nothing but photos and the random stuff was so minimal. Everything is completely over-saturated at this point.

    I started having a look into this and apparently it's not JUST the algorithm, you can get shadow banned if you post too many pictures with the same hashtags...fucking what?! It's an absolute cluster fuck!

    I mean this explains SO much, like why my drawings will randomly do well but my film reviews just don't! Maybe i should go back to doing completely original pictures for the reviews then using the films posters.

    I think I'm already following a lot of you and vice versa, but here's my insta. It's mostly just my kids and my various gardening/crafting/reading projects.

    As I was thinking about it today. I got some of you guys on Instagram already, so here's mine.

    A little music scene (or what's left of it these days) from the South of Germany and some BTS of my own well-being in the stories: https://www.instagram.com/timtiiiim/

    I'm not a fan of them moving everything around to fit in this marketplace BS...

    Also Twitter straight up copying Insta's story's, it's not even subtle, it's straight up the same thing in where it is and what it looks like!

    Reading about the lawsuits in the US about Facebook buying up rivals, WhatsApp and Instagram. I enjoy using both but loathe Facebook so it would be great if they were forced to divest them

    Definitely! Insta lost its way a long time ago and is pretty much just a Facebook hub at this point. I miss the old days...

    I wonder if SmugMug would be a worthy company to scoop up Instagram should it be pried from FB's grip. They acquired Flickr from Yahoo/Verizon a while ago so maybe they could capitalize on the Insta userbase somehow and remind people that Flickr even exists LOL

    I'd love that but I also wonder if it's too far gone. The addition of Stories was annoying but it grew on me. But the new TikTok imitation is fucking horrific. I used to troll the search page and it was actually pretty well curated to my interests. But after Reels became a thing it's completely useless. And half the Reels are just TikToks posted on IG...with the goddamn logo on it and everything. I fuckin hate it.
