A while ago I decided to focus more on Instagram. Facebook is so annoying lately and I just don’t receive anything good from Facebook. Are you hesitating on choosing Instagram instead of Facebook? Then read this blog.

Instagram instead of Facebook

Better interaction

I have a way better interaction on Instagram. Also, I think it is easier to get in touch with people on Facebook. I get around 200-300 likes and I get a lot of comments as well. I have met a lot of nice people on Instagram as well and on Facebook, that’s just not the case anymore.

Nicer people

I frequently get critics on Facebook. There are nice people of course, but some people just want to stay anonymous and that’s so annoying. On Instagram, that’s way less. I meet a lot of nice people there and I love to talk to other people.

More Reach

I have a big reach on Instagram. Currently, I have around 5500 followers on Instagram and on Facebook 1550. Also, I reach around 10k people each month and this is way less on Facebook.

Nice collaborations

Lately, I notice that companies are very interested in my Instagram profile. I hate myself for not starting with Instagram earlier. Still, I have increased my following amount by 1000 followers on Instagram this month and I am super happy with that.

Nice design

I think it is way nicer to share pictures on Instagram than only boring messages on Facebook. It is way nicer to scroll through nice pictures instead of boring blog messages.


I think it is amazing to create the perfect feed on Instagram. On Facebook, I don’t really care if pictures fit with other pictures, but I care a lot about Instagram. It is so much fun to create your own perfect feed.
