As the Instagram experience continues to circle the drain with their endless ads and unwanted video reels, many photographers like me are getting fed up and yearning for a purer social media platform that focuses on photos like Instagram used to. Fortunately there is a great alternative: Vero! Here are some points in Vero's favor:
- It's fun to use, with good mobile AND desktop apps that display the photos nicely. The desktop app is sweet, with a large tiled grid of photos and the ability to view the photos at large sizes.
- No algorithm. When you open the mobile app you pick up right where you left off in the chronological feed.
- No ads. (Yet. I hope this doesn't change as it grows).
- It's not actively ruining the fabric of our society.
I encourage you to check out Vero and follow me there at https://vero.co/jackbrauer. I'm not abandoning my Instagram account and I'll keep posting new photos there, but I'm already posting on Vero more often.
