Pros

Crowdstack has helped us determine the best options for our online community. They have been a wonderful resource and very responsive to emails and questions as we look to expand our community reach.
Our community is professional rather than social in nature so we needed some customization to meet the needs of our clients, and they accomplished these on time and on budget, with great results.
For our client, it’s been a great platform for showcasing knowledge about how small businesses can leverage technology to help their businesses thrive.

Pros

Easy integration with other social networks allows for greater reach through sharing. The possibility of interacting with people through stories is amazing and fast.
The statistics are useful for seeing my outreach in the community and I've made connections with people I wouldn't have otherwise met if it weren't for my business, so I am very grateful for that.
Instagram is a great platform to extend your reach, socialize as well as follow others who inspire you. I love that you can post almost anything and there is potential to build a brand for yourself.

Cons

I rarely get complaints about problems, and when I do it is usually a problem on the member's computer.
If the account is not used, the account even if it is paid or lifetime deal is cancelled.
It's critical that you have a staff of Dev and Design cohorts working on this project - the functionality of Hoop.la on its own is not enough.

Cons

Mod bot blocks some uploads inappropriately and without an option to dispute. There are a lot of spam accounts that either pretend to be someone or represent a business that they are not.
If the Instagram app has been deleted accidentally from your phone, you may run the risk of losing your account which happened including all photos posted.
Instagram adverts are everywhere and sometimes are annoying. Instagram does not work well with unstable Internet connection.

Not intuitive and frustrating

Reviewed 3 years ago

Method, really not much to say. I click on it once in a while .

Pros

There isnoittle I like about this platform so I don't have very much that I can really say here as a pro.

Cons

Where do I begin?? Add a new post vs a story vs kooki.g at your profile is not intuitive. I consider myself pretty tech savvy and I just don't get this platform and how it is useful. Is it just a picture book? If it is opened by the same people who own Facebook, then why have both. Just.confused.

Pros

Instagram allows for many different uses which is nice. You can use it for personal social networking, multi-media style marketing, starting a business and adertising.

Cons

It seems too easy for others to hack Instagram accounts and cause pro for people. I also don't like that anyone can screen shot my photos and use them or save them. It would be cool to prevent that ability somehow.

Great social media platform but very wobbly with new features

Reviewed 3 years ago
Pros

can be easy to post regular posts pictures... if you do the newest features such as the reel, there are lots of options and filters to customize.

Cons

the time it takes to edit reel. and it s very wobbly. the drafts disappear, some music don't show up. It's like now you need to be a video pro to communicate on the platform and that I really dislike because first, we are expert sharing a message

Instagram ! Le réseau qui ne se passe pas de mode

Reviewed 7 months ago

Utilisation quotidienne aussi bien dans la vie pro que perso. En effet étant consultante influence je fais beaucoup de recherche de personnalité dessus ainsi que du reporting, et des statistiques. De plus c’est un outil essentiel quand nous somme à la recherche d’un lieu pour un événement ou d’un partenaire ! Il est utile pour tout et on y trouve de tout !

Pros

- gestion de différents comptes - gestion du contenu - planification du contenu - recherche d’inspiration (lieu, personne, outfit…)

Cons

Le fil d’actualité et de moins en moins pertinent et beaucoup de chose passe à la trap

Reviewed 3 years ago

I absolutely love Instagram and it is a critical component in my photography and vlogging business. I would be lost without it!

Pros

I love the various types of posts you are allowed to make, from regular photo/s posts, video clips, to full length IGTV videos. I also like the photo editing and tagging options available.

Cons

Honestly, I have never had a problem or complaint through using Instagram and hope that I never do. If I had to choose one area that could use work I would have to say that the livestreaming video quality could be better. I livestream on an iPhone 12 Pro with 4K resolution but the livestream quality looked like 720 resolution.

THIS SOCIAL PLATFORM/SOFTWARE IS VERY FUN & USEFUL

Reviewed 3 years ago

Overall I LOVE THIS APP!!!🙂👍 I USE IT EVERYDAY ON DAILY BASIS👌 IT HAS SOME OF MY FAVORITE PAGES WHERE I CATCH UP ON NEWS AND OTHER STUFF LIKE FUNNY VIDEOS ETC...🤞

Pros

This Software Is Really Fun !!!😄 You Can Find Lots Of Entertainment And Informative Items Ranging From PAGES TO PRIVATE Accounts e.t.c Funny Videos etc.. Its also A really great place to promote your business ....it has a very wide audience It Just Has A Unique And Different Vibe and Feel Than the other similar software's which makes it even more interesting!!!

Cons

A Con I could say is that when you're on your news feed you get random post from people you never followed This Can be very annoying Another Con Can be ads also known as advertising as it can be PRO its also a CON due to the reason that sometimes you get overwhelmed with ads and you no longer enjoy the experience of viewing what your followers have posted!!! because the ads are in the way....

Photo editing like a PRO

Reviewed 3 years ago

Overall, IG app is really good, over the last 6 months this has been my TO-GO app every morning. This makes me learn on the aspect of editing skills. Infact, I'm not into editing of photo before but this app really changed my persona when it comes to taking the photos to the next level. Just, AWESOME!

Pros

IG probably is my GO-TO app when it comes to photo editing. It makes me confident on posting my photos in a very limited time spent. The filters are all awesome and fit to my requirement as simple sweet and dramatic effects. They are all slay. Additionally, this software is mostly likely to be visited by my targeted audience and potential buyers from my small business, so being one of the IG users is a perfect way to boost the sales and the campaign you are planning for. Traffic gained+PRO photos+good content=feasible results of sales!

Cons

I never thought i will be using the app daily. Honestly, i went through some tutorials before landing my very own account as widgets on the app makes me confused, however along the way i got used to it. Probably, one of the cons i consider they need to improve is, allowing the user to share file, example: business e brochure, although we can post it directly from our feed but there are some people who prefer to save a file directly from their devices, so in that case, getting another application is necessary for this type of person.

Market products on IG with paid Ads Pros and Cons

Reviewed 3 years ago

Overall I enjoy the ease of posting and advertising, tho depending on the ad and filters sometimes I feel like Its not worth it because of the high concentration of people doing the same. I think it just depends on your business and how creative you are. I think its worth trying and seeing how you feel after a couple of months.

Pros

Able to edit and filter your photo is a huge benefit. Adding hashtags in relation to your business or product that people can click on and find your services is great. Able to ad tons of fun elements to your photos thru their stories is tons of fun and lets you be very creative, its one of my favorite parts of advertising my product thru their stories. Also a plus that you can find and add music. With Your paid Ads you are able to create filters for who you want the post to be advertised to. Another Pro is the Analytics that are constantly updated per post, very helpful.

Cons

A Con is definitely that there is such a congestion of people promoting on instagram. When I go on as a normal user, sometimes I feel bombarded by the ads, and it makes me wonder if it can be a turn off to people browsing. Another Con is when paying for an Ad, the filters are very limited for who you want your post advertised too. Its up to you to find the filters that are best for you, but that could take some time and be a bit difficult figuring out. A Con is also depending on the song I use in a post, instagram will mute my post, it feels random because I've seen other people post the same song and it not be muted.
