The familiar gets the most applause

Replied to Farewell Flickr, Farewell Instagram by Alexander S. Kunz (alex-kunz.com)

Or perhaps it’s too late? This mechanism of “the familiar gets the most applause” was most apparent to me on Flickr and Instagram, and witnessing it is demotivating for me. I know that’s a problem that only exists in my own head of course – but I had to remove myself from it because it’s not the kind of feedback I want to get from using a photo sharing site. I’m influenced by it, and it’s time to change what influences me.

I’m considering deleting my Instagram account. Again.
