My Instagram wish list

God knows I love my Instagram! So here’s my Instagram wish list.

 

Now that Facebook has bought Instagram what’s next for our friendly simple filter community?

Here are a few things I would love to see come out of this social collaboration:

 

    1. DM capability. Serious, having comment conversations is rough and uncivilized.
    2. Deeper integration with Facebook friends.  I would love to see who of my Facebook friends is on instagram and follow them. The wall between the two social networks needs to come down, combine our friendships please.
    3. Let’s just get that annoying commenting on the Facebook post / instagram post fixed. Get it together people and fix yo shiz.
    4. New capabilities such as video. Social cam and others are getting a good head start on the short sharable and social film trend taking off. Instagram needs to get on that!
    5. A brand pages feature! (maybe even with analytics, but one step at a time)
    6. And last but not least, a real web interface – like a real website with proper login capabilities.

A picture of where we are going …


Now that Twitter has launched its photo gallery pulling service “User Gallery’s” that automatically pulls your awesome snap shots from service such as yFrog, TwitPic, Instagram or and even the dreaded “Lockerz” – What does this mean for the overall social experience?

For yonks now I have been talking on twitter about how much I love the photo sharing / filter loving site Instagram. To me, a picture is worth a million words and Instagram (among other photo sharing sites) is where we are going. Augmented reality, tweet pics, flicker mobile and G+ photo sharing / video hangouts lead me to believe (ecstatically) that we are becoming even more image driven in our social experience. I have friends @MonikaRola & @Reddinthecity that use Instagram even more than Facebook and twitter. For personal and corporate use I thing Instagram is a fantastic service. One of the best uses of a brand making the most of the app is The Hudson’s Bay Company (SO Client, though I don’t work on that account), The retro filters work perfectly with this hipster chic brand!

With photos taking the main stage over the 140 character hyperlinked messages where do you see us going next, video? Maybe 12seconds.tv was just a little before its time…
