Instagram

Instagram
Instagram is a photo sharing social media which is actually owned by Facebook. This excellent website allows users to snap any picture with their mobile phone and instantly share to Instagram. Which where they can add hashtags to get comments even likes on their posts.

Which also now you can live stream and add videos as posts on your Instagram as a post. Most social media websites still use the hashtag systems but in my opinion, Instagram hashtags added to your posts work the best. You can also follow hashtags which will keep you updated on the things you like in that niche on your feed.

Many people use Instagram even businesses are starting to use it which works really well and boosts there business. I have seen a lot of businesses using this platform and also a few celebrities use this as well. Some even boost there following and earn money with there Instagram doing daily shoutouts or even mentions. So remember if you use this platform then work more on your following and you could be quids in.

Do you use Instagram? What do you think of this platform?

Pros
Excellent to get the word out about website/business Can reach much more of an audience even quicker then most social media websites

Cons
You can see a lot of spam you can mainly use this on your mobile iOS & Android phones. You can use on Windows 10 laptops but are limited to what you can do.

Simple and user friendly

I both have instagram and pinterest. I use both for personal use and most of the times to get information especially about travelling, places, new trend on clothes, shoes and make ups. I like instagram more because it is more user friendly and easier to use. You just scroll up and down to see images and post. I like its minimalistic approach to the user. It is also very organized. Unlike in pinterest where in it is very confusing and mixed up. It is so hard to find stuff in pinterest. Also when you search for certain items, pinterest tends to include things that is really not related to the search.

My everyday app

I usually use Instagram to share photos of what is currently happening in my life. It also helps me to communicate from the outside world. I also use Instagram to interact with my friends and to give update to them. I think it is also a great tool to sell online products that you just have to post some photos of your items and your possible buyers will just send you a direct message.

Instagram

I prefer this one because it is user-friendly and if you want a simple way to share your photo then instagram is a good app for you. You know, by sharing just a photo, you can easily communicate to other people. I like instagram more than pinterest because instagram is more direct to the users. In short, It is easy to use.

Insta

Instagram is the much better platform, to be honest. Pinterest is not doing badly but it just isn't as popular or as large as Instagram right now. And Insta will continue to do well for a long while especially with people making money from the platform using affiliates and paid advertisements.

No Contest

I'm a huge Instagram person. Not only has Pinterest never really been my thing, but Instagram is so much easier to "customize" if you will. I'm a portrait photographer, so I follow other photographers in my niche which makes my feed so much more unique for me. It's a great way to connect with other photographers and models in my area and has been a huge factor for me in building my portfolio of photography.

Love it

I never really liked Pinterest that much. I just don't see the appeal of it. The only time that I have used it was when a search engine took me there.

On the other hand, Instagram is absolutely amazing. It's great for personal and business use. You can share videos and pictures!

I also think that Instagram has a great community behind it.

Instagram First; Pinterest Second

I have been an active Pinterest user for the longest time. I don't take anything away from that social site. It has been a tremendous help in my work at home projects and I would never close my account.

That being said, I was invited to create an Instagram account and it has been just as invaluable. I use it for personal and for home business. I post all of my Instagram activity to Pinterest. In other words, I post first to Instagram. I have different followers in the different networks. They are both great platforms, why not use both?

Different uses.

Both have different uses for me. I use Instagram as a social media to connect with other people and share my photos with them. On the other hand I use Pinterest as a website to get random pictures from, because there's a diversity of categories.

Pinterest is a bit confusing to me

In Pinterest I always kind of lose my way when I click some pictures and get lost and can't return to certain albums anymore. I am sure that is partly my fault too but I think it may also have to do with the way the site is structured, and possibly it could be done better to make it more simplified. I don't really like Instagram all that much either but it's much easier to navigate for me.

Awesome.

Most of the people that I know are on Instagram and this is simply as a result of the easy way that you can get to make use of those pictures. The celebrities make use of Instagram as well since the huge fan base are there and this is a sign that this social medium is one of the best that you have around especially when you want to promote via pictures.

Comfortable with Instagram

Between choosing Instagram and Pinterest, I would go for the one that I'm more familiar with and have actually used even though I'm currently using it at the moment. It's very easy to use just like Facebook is, only that it is more of pictures uploads.

I use both, but Instagram is used more

I love both Instagram and Pinterest, but if we're talking about how often I use them, Instagram wins hands down. I also find Instagram to be an easier way of connecting with my friends, whereas Pinterest tends to be for the sake of remembering ideas like recipes or home decor design.

Organized and Very aesthetically pleasing

I love to take photos and posting them on Facebook was a bit of a waste for me before because it becomes less relevant and unnoticeable after you post it as it gets replaced by your friends' posts. However, with Instagram you can still see your photos and even play with it to create a theme. I've also used Pinterest before but the simplicity and organization of Instagram made me use it more than Pinterest.

Instagram any day takes it

The ease of use and the fact that they have an app for me are the greatest pluses. I tried using pinterest a couple of years back but i never really figured it out properly. With instagram however once you become hooked it is very hard to opt out. The popularity of instagram is also significant as people will always go to where more publicity can be accessed.

It is more commonly used of my friend, acquaintances, and family so it is really better than interest. It is easier to used. I can follow the celebrities that I liked. I loved seeing their updated photos.

I love using both but I love INSTAGRAM more :)

I always use these apps usually on a daily basis. I love Pinterest, it's very useful when I wanted some ideas and inspirations whenever I need it. But Instagram is more on the interaction side. I really love seeing pictures and videos of the people, usually celebrities that I follow. I like how Instagram has their own messaging so that we can also use it for communicating.

Nice Layout

Having Instagram can redifine our way of sharing experiences with others and notifying others. It has a simplistic user interface which is elegant and easiy to use. Have very minimal bugs and it is widely used nowadays so that we can instantly reach our love ones. Unlike other social media apps Instagram offers a high quality blogging.

I vote for Instagram especially if you love creating and posting your content. The fundamental difference is that Instagram is about your own personal content and Pinterest is all about sharing someone's else content.

INSTAGRAM IS BETTER

I am a user of both Instagram and Pinterest for a long time now. I would always pick Instagram over Pinterest when it comes to making a choice in between the two. instagram is much more easy to use and also very innovative when both the sites are compared. Pinterest, on the other hand, is also good, but still is sometimes very confusing for many users, especially for members are new to it. when it comes to the overall look and also the utility, Instagram is way ahead of Pinterest and is, therefore, my choice in between the two

Trend

What I love about Instagram its widespread popularity that even our favorite celebrities are digging into it. I love to get updates about my idols and connect with them, and Instagram is such a good tool for it. Instagram also exhibits a user's creativity, basically, through the set of photos that we post, it will look like an exhibition of our life and Instagram serves as the museum.

Self Explanatory

Instagram is an app that is self explanatory and easy to access by it over one million users worldwide or more. It is an app that enable users to share image with a great caption to a large variety of people and it is one of the popular social media platform that celebrity from around the world use to link up with their large fans.

Instagram does not just save or share photos but it has a unique photo editor which is used to add beauty and style to photos before posting to your viewer and hash tags can be attached to the photo to increase the view and create awareness for the picture you intend to show to the world.

Instagram is easy to use and understandable

Pinterest
Pinterest is a social media website well you could say the social bookmarking website. It allows members to share there images just like any other social network. As Twitter as a tweet, Facebook and Instagram as a post, Pinterest as Pin. You can pin your favourite images on to your own profiles by also creating your own different categories.

When you create these categories we call them boards, so just like with a real board we can pin post-its and notes on them this is exactly what Pinterest lets us use Pinterest for. For example; you may create a board called cars, then you would pin all your favourite images of cars on this board. Maybe recipes or food and health board, you get the idea.

Many years ago this social media site was more popular with women as it revolved a lot more with fashion and everyday women's categories. Which soon grew day by day and these days everyone is on it, from social lovers to fashion promoters and also affiliate marketers.

Pinterest is a great way to promote images from your website, which can also get your a good social signal. Anyone can also share your content which works in your favour to gain a much more steady flow of traffic if sharing from your website to one of your mainboards.

Like twitter as a share option called retweet well Pinterest as the same but it is called Re-Pin. Members can view your boards and if they find what they are looking at on your pins then they would re-pin it to there boards. This is known as a re-pin.

Pinterest is growing even more popular day by day and is an awesome way to reach out to much more of an audience. Do you use Pinterest?

Pros
Much more than just a visual social media platform Grow your business and website traffic effectively with rich pins.

Cons
You need to spend time on this site before you see good results. Sometimes there are bugs on the site, from not uploading the correct size of the image to not inputting the text in your pin when pinning. There just rare faults...

Perfect for Affiliates

You can see that compared to the instagram, here you can get lot better traffic. And also for the affiliate marketing this can be a good option. On that note I'd definitely say that it's one place worth checking out. It can make things a bit easier to use and check out.

Instagram is for Vanity and Online Stores

I'm not that active on social media like most millennial but on Instagram, I noticed everyone is on it for vanity and the online retail stores on their site. Nothing more. I use Pinterest to gather ideas for projects and such. It's much more useful to me and my workset than Instagram.

In matters of arts and learning

I have learned more stuff in Pinterest in terms of arts and crafts. Instagram is too fast phased in compare to Pinterest, so there were a lot of pictures with less information. At times there were a lot, they become clutter instead of inpiring pieces. In Pinterest there were a lot of interesting projects that one can try doing for themselves, with lots of links, and persons who are trying the same project.

Instagram is a really good innovative social media site invented by facebook , as you can easily snap any picture you want including that of your business and it quickly reaches millions of people when you post it or share it at instagram.

Definitely I will choose Instagram on this comparison as it is easy to use and has a minimalistic design that is way better than the cluttered tiles on pinterest that looks hideous. I use both but I am more active with instagram than on pinterest regardless which social media platform is popular or not. Since it is one of the popular social media platform nowadays, then it will be easy for advertisements to be seen by a lot of people and could get a genuine feedback all at once.

Agree, feel you here. Tried to use Pinterest, but I was overwhelmed and annoyed with all those images pumping on of the screen, it looks like messy to me. Also, Instagram is way more interactive, you can use it to let people know your business, or for personal/family/friends purpose. The only thing that I don't really like about it, is when people tend to do contests or challenges, and tag you everywhere.

If I'm being honest with you, I haven't for one day in my life tried to access Pinterest site or download its application. I normally see it's icon on page and some sites that I see online but I don't have the time or interest to check it out. I believe it's probably because I'm just not really into any social media sites that has to do with more of pictures uploads.

I don't see why the two sites are different they are both visual social media sites. However I prefer pinterest. I think I get many of my ideas from there. Instagram is more a shopping channel while pinterest is more an ideas channel. I think Instagram is more popular because it has managed to attract more people because it is affiliated to Facebook so this makes it much easier for anyone to use.

I prefer to use Instagram because this is easier to use compared to Pinterest. But I guess, it will also depend on the user. If you just want to share images/videos and follow others, Instagram is for you. And for promoting your business, Pinterest is better. Although, promoting your business is also possible on Instagram. Pinterest is more useful and you can make a kind of visual resume with this tool.

I love being able to get a quick snapshot of what my family, and my friends are doing every day. I keep my Instagram circle tight so my feed is filled with images from the people I love. It is also interesting to see the kinds of pictures people post including my favorite celebrities. I love it also of seeing pictures of foods which i'm so addicted to it.

I haven’t tried Pinterest although I had checked on it to see that it’s a social bookmarking site where you can promote your interest. With Instagram, it is the posting of pictures and videos in an instant hence the name Instagram. What’s unique in Instagram is that it is only available in mobile browsers for posting that you can check on it using the computer browser but you cannot post with that.

Instagram is easier to use but Pinterest has more to offer than photos or photo sharing. Are they actually comparable?! Pins can link to just about anything on the web, including Instagram pictures or posts. Although I am following some well-known personalities in Instagram, I was never a big user. On the other hand, I enjoy following links and reading content on Pinterest. I have not tried using Pinterest for affiliate marketing or similar activities, but I have used it to find DIY for various home projects I've implemented in the past.

I have accounts on both platforms but I am more active on Instagram. I think Instagram is more appealing to teens and businesses because people are more active there. People on social media tend to post things or events that show their achievements or other similar things. Pinterest doesn't seem to have the population and activity to match Instagram's.

I might also add that many online business are having an easier time promoting their stuff online as Instagram has so many users compare to Pinterest. It is much easier to connect to people on the platform with the use of hashtags for any of your post. People searching things can easily see your post and might be the reason why your sales go high.

From a personal perspective, Pinterest is just so incredibly therapeutic. Once immersed you become drawn ever deeper into a world of beautiful and fascinating images, each one a story on its own yet all the time leading to ever more untold delights and new sources of inspiration.

They are definitely way too different with each other. One is a social meadia that can talk or communicate with other people while the other seems just like google images search. Instagram is where you really enjoy while Pinterest is where you can get if you are doing photo or image things like in the photoshop.
