People keep sending me Instagram links to their artwork and events. I can't see any of it without an account and logging in. I don't think a lot of people realise how much they lock in their content behind walls.
Or why they feel a need to.
@axbom my impression is that people with Instagram are unaware that their content is largely unaccessible for people without accounts.
@Stellar Interesting. But yeah, in the end I'm not really interested in making accommodations wherein I have to spend time on workarounds for any and all devices I happen to be on when somebody sends me a link. Best not to engage, I feel.
@axbom We're pack animals. The pack has instagram (subsitute for an mass-adopted platform). They don't see it as locked, and if they do the see it as easily fixed by you creating an account!
