Passions: Photos or videos?
Instagram’s move to becoming a video-first app led to an online protest. An author and a digital creator present two sides
“Insta’s morphed into a performance platform”
The platform is no longer about picture aesthetic or capturing a moment. Now it’s about rushing through cleverly edited photographs and people trying to grab your attention with a song and a dance. From a photo sharing platform, it’s morphed into an entertainment platform where everybody is being performative.
I support Instagram’s new video-centric approach because the future of content consumption is short form content in video format.
