Default Instagram?

What's so special about instagram? Do we need another social media thing? Been reading and it seems their biggest thing is that you can share pictures to facebook so your friends and family can see them.

OMFG! Really?!!

Have these people not noticed that you can do that right on facebook?

What am I missing?

People love to make their photos look like 80s Polaroid quality.

I love going places, specially out to eat, and seeing everybody nose deep into their phone. What a sad generation.

Biggest problem with Instagram, is once you upload a image they own it out right to sell and use as they choose even to make money. You loose all rights to your image.

I'm never ready for a picture anyway, so I don't do it. I can't believe how much time is spent on Instagram by people.

I know a lot of guy friends who have it just to look through "hot half nude teen selfies"
Instagram doesn't tend to be blocked on companies WiFi where as searching for skanky girls on Google probably throws up a flag or two.

Idk why its so popular really, like it was mentioned before it has the exact same capabilities of photosharing as facebook.

I think for most people, myself included its a jump on the bandwagon situation.
