this.
i wouldn't pay a sub for it but then i'm not promoting my business, so i guess $15/£10 whatever it'll be isn't necessarily that much if it's driving business for them (tattooists)
also sick to death of ads on IG, literally every 5th post in my feed!! that and the algorithms f**king up the chronological order of things and it seems people might be ready for something new??

Signed up yesterday for the exact reasons stated.
Hardly anyone sees posts on Facebook/instagram now.
For example, last minute cancellation posts, they used to get filled super quickly without fail, sometimes in seconds. Now you're lucky if anyone even sees it. 1000 likes on a piece of work might now get 40 likes.... from the same people every time.
Can't moan too much though because it's been free all these years.
Vero will never challenge Facegram, maybe won't even last a year but I'm in there early just in case one of the Kardashians says it's good.

I like the way you can post more than just pics and videos and it categorizes posts for later searches. I like the music, movie, and book database that already exists so that you don't have to pull in external links. And speaking of external links, you can post straight from youtube or a browser from your iphone (and I'm assuming android) through the Sharing function (like facebook or twitter) which was missing from insta.

I think they have good features and are definitely ahead of the curve when it comes to innovative social media. And I think it will thrive for a good bit, I just wonder what it'll be like after the subscription fees/taking a percentage of click through sales begin

Idk i just think this will all crumble if Instagram just changes back to chronological order. Also, they'd probably just buy out vero if it starts to challenge them. But it's like you said, might as well squat on an account since its free for life at then start

A lot of tattooists seem keen, but The Rock is staying silent...

no harm trying it out really, i think it’s good to have new apps challenge instagram cause instagram is shit now. unless i turn on post notifications i really have to trawl through my feed on instagram. insta stories is also loaded with a fuck ton of sex ads and that is also super annoying. you’d think with how often they take down posts with peoples butt crack or cleaveage showing they’d do a better job with these sex ads.

How long before Instagram adjusts the algorithm so that any posts about Vero don't ever show up on anyone's feed?

Haha this wouldn't surprise me.

Well after not being on here for ages, I'm back (and with a front panel started AND finished). Was just about to ask what people know about this vero and if anyone was getting it, I was beaten to it but just read the thread to catch up.

I've already signed up anyway same name as here: jackn_89 for anyone who wants to connect.

Hello to everyone I've not spoken to in a while now, and also to the people joining since I was last on. I'll try to be more regular again now. I got bored of social media etc and kind of forgot about this too.

Still yet to post, but does anyone know if you can tag someone in your picture caption (Like if you post your tattoo and say done by @blahblah etc?
