Instagram the New Twitter?

7 replies
Instagram is most popular Android App ever. And Android phones are 80% of the mobile market.

Instagram is growing 10 times faster than Twitter.

Instagram will launch ad platform soon.

Consumers love Instagram.

Is Twitter going the way of Myspace or G+ ?

I've played with G+ Tumblr Pinterest etc. but my top two social media platforms for activity and to make money are Facebook and YouTube. Should Instagram now be a third?

    I don't know if Twitter is going the way of the dodo, but instagram seems like a great avenue for anybody selling web design or graphics.

      Could you give some tips? I provide graphic services and It would really help me. I haven't really used instagram much. I thought, people only post personal pictures.

      I don't think twitter is going the Myspace of G+ way. In my opinion it has improved a lot and I prefer Twitter for a lot promotion. It works for me anyway.

      I have a question regarding Instagram . I know that its growing quickly. Do you know ways to promote on Insta? Especially for selling graphic services. I have never tried, I thought Instagram is only for sharing personal photos.

    hmm, I give instagram a few years. There is so many of these social things coming out that some will vanish for sure!

    Twitter isn't going anywhere...once they get video in the feed - say good bye to youtube and HELLO to twitter! And that's how they will make ad money...video ads...high CPM's

    I personally DON'T think Twitter is going anywhere.

    And here's an interesting article that I found.

    Twitter co-founder Evan Williams: 'I don't give a shit' if Instagram has more users



    Here's an excerpt from the article.

    "If you think about the impact Twitter has on the world versus Instagram, it’s pretty significant. It’s at least apples to oranges. Twitter is what we wanted it to be. It’s this realtime information network where everything in the world that happens on Twitter—important stuff breaks on Twitter and world leaders have conversations on Twitter. If that’s happening, I frankly don’t give a shit if Instagram has more people looking at pretty pictures." - Evan Williams, Twitter co-founder.

    I think if instagram started allowing a KNOW way to post from your pc... then it would take off for sure.

    yeah I know there are apps and ways around it... I just have not personally found one that works fast or consistent enough to not make it so time consuming to try to do everything from my mobile device. So that deters me from insta. But if I could post with a few clicks like I could to facebook and twitter.... I would be all over it
