Instagram is not what it used to be. The photo-sharing app was once very popular for users who wanted to share pictures with popular filters.
The app has now evolved into more of a “TikTok” competitor which is focused more on its videos/Reels feature which has been met with backlash with most users including the Kardashians.
If you’re looking for an app that is more “photo” focused, here are some alternatives that you can check out:
