Don't know if anyone else gets like this, but after a while I start to get overwhelmed with too many things. Especially when it comes to social media. I used to have just about everything that was huge and made sure to post as often as I could. But now with the pandemic, it feels like either nothing is being updated or there's too many users and my content gets lost in the crowd.
My accounts were on apps like We ♥ It, Facebook, multiple accounts on Tumblr and a few others. But as time passed, I narrowed it down to Insta (one for my gal stuff and one for my shop Bunny Crafty Dream), Twitter, Pinterest (kinda), one Tumblr account and of course my blog. I will go randomly on Pinterest and Tumblr for some inspo or just use it to repost from when I share blog posts. Twitter, so far, has been the platform that I've been most loyal to since I can just type on there and don't have to put photos and I can share clickable links. Insta on the other hand...

I don't know if it's because I just don't follow 1k+ people anymore (I'm more selective in what accounts I follow now), the crappy algorithm or just people not posting like they used to but I never see anything new on my feed. On top of that, it feels more like a chore to go on there and even try to post. I don't look at numbers anymore because at this point it's whatever. But I also feel like the platform makes it basically impossible to be seen even by your friends unless you have 10k+ followers. Which is sad because I would love to see more of what my friends post.
Anyway, I stopped using Insta for over a little while now and have not felt the need to go back to it. I even deleted the app off of my phone. I just check every so often to respond to messages that I need to and that's it. I honestly don't miss it at all. I can do all the same and more on my blog or Twitter. I would like to post more for my shop's account but even that can be tough sometimes.
So, now I ask anyone that reads my blog: Is there an app that's like Insta but better? Or just social media better than FB and Insta out there in general? I feel like every time I try to search, all I keep getting hit with are those two along with Tiktok (which I gave up on), SnapChat and We Chat.
If you know of anything, please let me know in the comments! I don't want to overdo it to the point on Twitter where I will lose interest on that as well!
