Ello!

As most Instagrammers have seen there are changes being implemented that will ruin the "insta" part of your feed.
A lot of quilters/sewists have been flocking to Ello.

I played with it yesterday and actually enjoy it more than Instagram. It won't replace Instagram (at least not now) for me but the features are more to my tastes.
You can post photos from your desktop. That is a big plus for me. It's such a huge ordeal for me to transfer camera photos to my phone then to Instagram. Now I can post after I edit on my computer. This is perfect for people that don't have smart phones too that have been missing all the Instagram action the past few years.

It's like Twitter, Instagram, and a blog all mixed together.

The only drawback is that there isn't an android app yet so I don't get notifications until I go on the website, either on my phone or computer.
It's in beta now though so hopefully they are going to work on all the little issues and get an app for us non-Apple people.
Here I am if you are on Ello lets be friends!

Interesting! I haven't been on IG for awhile. What's happening? I will have to check out Ello!

*Staci *

IG is going to curate what the users see in their feed by what "they" think the users will like. I am assuming the popular IG posts in your feed will be pushed to the top meaning you'll miss the smaller accounts you follow. I've heard it's going the way of FB. :( I don't really use either lately so maybe Ello is the social site for me?
Let me know if you sign up so I can follow you!

Oh wow... Which definitely means my IG account holds no chance! Lol. I went ahead and signed up! Can't wait to try it out. I've also already followed you :-)
